Default Horror's Greatest Female Characters

The Pact (out now!) is the ghost equivalent of The Descent. A chilling thriller with a strong female cast - these aren't your typical scream queens. They're hard-headed, strong, independent and powerful women.

So, here's a thread dedicated to your fav females in horror. Sure, there's the screaming, sex-obsessed, super dumb bimbo characters, but then there are characters like The Pact's Annie, Ripley, the ladies of The Descent, Silence Of The Lambs Clarice Starling, Carrie, heck even Regan!

So let us know your favs!

I think Clare Higgins as Julia Cotton in Hellraiser II is a fantastic character - Hellbound would have been a better film if they concentrated on her... As an actress she really sells the half-finished flesh and blood creation in the early scenes of the film...

Great choice Pete, she's a fantastic bit of stuff, and I loved her coming back for Dream Warriors and New Nightmare...

Tina Gray: All day long I've been seeing that guy's weird face and hearing those fingernails.

Nancy: Fingernails? That's amazing you saying that. That made me remember the dream I had last night.

Tina Gray: What'd you dream?

Nancy: I dreamed about a guy in a dirty red and green sweater.

[Glen looks up, curious]

Tina Gray: Well what about the fingernails?

Nancy: Well he scraped his fingernails along things. Actually they were more like fingerknives or something. Something he'd made himself. They made a horrible sound

[Imitating nails on a chalkboard]

Nancy: screeech.

I really like Zoe Lund in Ms. 45 - just because her performance is heart-breaking... she's like a ghost in that film...

Don't mean to be a smart-arse, but Clare Higgins didn't play skinless Julia, it was Deborah Joel, great character though

For me, I'm gonna go for Marilyn Burns in TCM, she really goes through some serious shit at the back end of that film!

Yep, you're right of course Rik, fair dues... I still think she's great in the film though...

Yeah, Marilyn Burns, she's gorgeous in TCM...I love those bellbottoms.
