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.”

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014, Norway / Iceland) Review

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014, Norway / Iceland) Review

Like the tagline, you shouldn’t take this film seriously. If you’re a horror fan who has never seen this sequel before, I would recommend it. There’s plenty of humour where you don’t expect it, great fight scenes, and it’s bonkers in a way only an independent film can be.

“The sequel you did Nazi coming…”

Beast Within (aka Hunter’s Moon) (2019, USA / Canada) Danse Macabre DVD Review

Beast Within (aka Hunter's Moon) (2019, USA / Canada) Danse Macabre DVD Review

When will I learn that a great premise doesn’t necessarily mean a film will be great or even good. Just like the enjoyable Werewolves Within, the similarly titled Beast Within is a werewolf whodunit that references the party game. However, that is where the similarities end. The acting in Beast Within is woeful. There is no emotion, no chemistry, and no believability in most of the characters. When the werewolf is finally revealed, that particular character becomes a bit more three-dimensional and believable. I don’t know how much of the film’s issues lie with the bad writing or directing.

“It’s no longer a game.”

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.”
