Every film listed in the appendix of Kier-La Janisse's 2012 memoir "House of Psychotic Women." From the book:

"[…]while by no means comprehensive, this appendix is a cross-section of horror and violent exploitation films that feature disturbed or neurotic women as primary or pivotal characters […] Admittedly some films stretch genre definitions, and others fall completely outside of the centre but are nonetheless important progenitors for genre characterizations."
