Women in Horror Month 2011
Deadly Movies Top 5 | Final Girls
“Behind every great (boogey) man (of horror) there stands a great woman (about to decapitate him)” Old Arabian proverb
Horror fans everywhere love that great staple of the genre, The Final Girl. She embodies the mental toughness, morality, and strength that allows her to not only stay off the often male antagonist, but also outlast and outlive most of the male cast. She may not always be as hot as some of her doomed friends (unless you dig the whole androgynous thing) but she’s pretty useful to have around if you find yourself backed in a corner by a masked mummy’s boy. So join Deadly Movies in a celebration of the very best of the best hardcore horror chicks.
