The Best Female-Led Horror Films
Gorgeous women are frequently cast in horror films for 3 motives: to display their sexuality, scream as if they are dying, and behave as helpless victims. However, this isn’t always the case. These females are sometimes the villains who must be defeated, and other times they are the heroines who must be slain. Below are the best 8 female-led horror films of all time!
- The Ring
The idea of the famous horror film is so bizarre that it could only have been created by a deranged mind. We’re talking about a VHS tape that kills people. The killing is really done by the vengeful ghost of a small child, but it’s still strange. The victims get phone calls as soon as they finish seeing the scary film, warning them that they will die in seven days. That’s what occurred to Reiko, the main character, and she has no option but to solve the riddle.
- The Descent
Sarah begins to see and hear odd things while trapped in the caverns, but she dismisses them as hallucinations. Those fears eventually become a reality, as creatures begin to overrun the caverns. Sarah discovers a way out of the caverns after seeing all of her companions being slaughtered one by one and then returns to murder the monsters.
Characters that are knowledgeable and resourceful are uncommon in such films. Usually, the man holding the camera dies at some point, often as a result of their own foolishness. Angela from this horror movie isn’t like that at all. She’s on a mission to figure out why people are turning into zombies, and everything she has is her faithful camcorder as well as a couple of steel testicles.
For sure, Ellen Ripley is among the most well-known horror film characters in cinema history. The film’s last 30 minutes are an exciting experience that culminates in a memorable twist finale.
Following her husband’s untimely death, Amelia is parenting her 6-year-old kid alone. It’s hard to call her joyful, but things get a lot worse when the Babadook, a creature from a novel, starts going for them. How do you combat a monster from a fairy tale? Is it genuine, or is it just a figment of their imagination? All you can do, according to that movie’s finale, is a strong maternal instinct and some goodies.
- Jennifer’s Body
This horror-comedy featuring Megan Fox, in which a stunning cheerleader transforms into a demon temptress, is unquestionably one of the most memorable films of the previous decade. She makes no apologies for exploiting her sexuality to achieve what she wants, which is men. After she murdered her best friend’s boyfriend, Amanda Seyfield’s heroine now has to stop her nefarious sexy pal.
We wouldn’t have as many “scrappy chicks” in horror films if it weren’t for Jamie Lee Curtis. In many respects, her role established the cinematic trope of the heroine surviving and killing the serial killer. If only Mike Meyers were a simple ghoul to dispatch, eh?
The heroine is attractive and capable of dealing with not one, although two psychos wearing the well-known grinning face masks. She jukes the assailants before ruthlessly murdering them in cold blood. Another fascinating aspect about Syd is that she is the primary protagonist in all of the sequels, and then we can witness her grow in strength as the series progresses.
