Bowling has stated that B.C. Butcher is inspired by The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Switchblade Sisters, Raquel Welch, Doris Wishman, and Joey Ramone. Critics have described B.C. Butcher as a “feminist slasher movie and “reminiscent of AIP beach party films.”
Bowling has directed over 20 music videos for various artists. In the music video for Kat Meoz’s “Here I Wait”, Bowling shot the only existing footage of Richard Brautigan’s paper-mâché bird Willard who was the subject of his 1975 novel Willard and His Bowling Trophies.

On August 15, 2018, Rolling Stone released a video Bowling directed for the Death Valley Girls’ song “Disaster (Is What We’re After)”.

Galore Magazine – a magazine targeted to the “modern girl”- premiered a video on October 26, 2018, Bowling directed for the band Collapsing Scenery’s song “Resort Beyond the Last Resort”. The video is based on Boyd Rice’s 1994 pro-rape manifesto “Revolt Against Penis Envy” which appeared in the controversial Answer Me! magazine.
The video reverses the narrative of the essay and has Rice getting raped by a woman.

Galore compared the video to Rihanna.
