6 Chicks that Kick Butt in Horror Flicks

Too often in horror movies, women get the short end of the stick. They are there for looks, they die off early, are left traumatized, or end up in a psychiatric institution. What is the deal with that!? Luckily there are a few women that are given the chance to do some real damage to the enemy and some even survive. Here are six chicks that kick butt in horror flicks.

Laurie Strode (aka Jaime Lee Curtis) in Halloween

Sidney Prescott (aka Neve Campbell) in Scream

Sarah Bailey (aka Robin Tunney) in The Craft

Clarice Starling (aka Jodie Foster) in The Silence of the Lambs

Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) in Alien

Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) in The Descent 

These women are here to remind us that when the going gets tough, we need to keep it together and kick some butt!
