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.

Slumber Party Massacre (2021, South Africa) Review

Slumber Party Massacre (2021, South Africa) Review

When I first heard about this film I thought it was a sequel to The Slumber Party Massacre (1982). When I finally watched the rebooted Slumber Party Massacre, I was quite surprised but ultimately disappointed in this production. The film initially opens with a retro flashback of what happened 25 years earlier. A group of teenage girls travel to a cabin in the woods for a slumber party. They are having the time of their lives eating pizza, guzzling beers, you know, just the usual stuff! Unknowingly, driller killer Russ Thorn lurks outside, attacking and killing the girls one by one!
