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!
