10 Terrifying Female Horror Villains

10 Terrifying Female Horror Villains

When we tend to talk about women in horror, it’s very easy to conjure up the age-old trope and imagery of the female slasher victim, because of their promiscuity and body positivity. Female antagonists however have been more than just the gory, tantalising titillation aimed at bringing hordes of men to the cinema.

“It has nothing to do with Satan, Mama. It’s me.”

Ditched (2021, Canada) Review

Ditched (2021, Canada) Review

Ditched delivers stomach-churning exploitation whilst flirting thematically with social-horror, but it is the classic “fuck you” ending that will linger with you long after the closing credits; feeling like a .44 caliber projectile piercing your brain.

Your Flesh, Your Curse (2017, Denmark) Review

Your Flesh, Your Curse (2017, Denmark) Review

Kasper Juhl’s Your Flesh, Your Curse fits neatly into the extreme category – but on the level of something approaching or trying to attain a more respectable degree of cinema, and one that doesn’t necessarily use the term extreme and underground as an excuse to display as much depravity and degradation normally associated with this area of film. The story follows the troubled character of Juliet, a young woman who loves to spend most of her time with her friends getting drunk and high – which seems to have been founded on a troubled and sexually abused past.

“Embrace the suffering.”
