Discussion by film critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel from a special edition of the show Sneak Previews. Although careful not to dismiss the horror film as a genre, Siskel and Ebert deplore those horror films that portray scared, cowering women who are victims of extreme violence and those that show scenes through the eyes of the attacker, making the viewer identify with him. They both agree that these films are probably a response to the women's movement, a way of telling women to "get back in their place." Shows excerpts from films, including Silent Scream, Friday the 13th, When a Stranger Calls, and I Spit on Your Grave
