This will probably be my favorite list to put together, its not just your scream queen I’m listing in here, but its those girls that make sure they are going to put up a fight. They’re not going to just stand there looking pretty while they scream and die.  With my new favorite horror film of 2014 ‘Kristy’ coming out in Europe this week, it represents this kind of final girl I love.  With talk of a ‘The Expendables’-type of film with the leading Scream queens called ‘The Survivors’, its time for me to rank these amazing performances by female actors that gave Scream Queen Final Girls a good name!

The top 10 all just rock my horror socks! Which performances were your favorites and who would you like to see all in a Final Girl-type of film together? If you like films where the heroine kicks some major butt, then you have to see these top 20.

HAPPY HORROR!

  1. […] The movie followed Haley Bennett as her character was hunted throughout her empty university campus by the Kristy-killing hooligans. Haley portrays the victim brilliantly, leaving no doubt that you are watching a person in immense panic. Without giving too much away, she reaches a turning point where she decides to take matters by the horns, and starts to kick ass, which is why she landed at No. 8 in Glen Packard’s Best Bas Ass Kick Ass Final Girls. […]

    While I haven’t seen all of the lovely ladies that endured so much Terror, violence and mental anguish, for our entertainment, I very much appreciate the enthusiastic tone of the article, as well as it’s informational value. I think the idea of an Expendables type Final Girl film ( led, of course by the indomitable Jamie Lee Curtis, she’s still so kickass as Scream Queens colorfully portrayed ) is not only interesting, if they get the right lineup, script ,director and most importantly BUDGET…this could be a blockbuster of The Conjuring proportions.
    I truly appreciate how enthusiastically fan boyish your article was. I waited 58 years to finally give in and partake of Facebook, and while I am thrilled as a horror fan to have access to so much information, I have some reservations.
    I am genuinely surprised at how many arm chair critics ( while having the right to say whatever they choose ) have such negative, smug, prejudgementally hateful things to say to and about each other, and projects that they haven’t even seen yet.
    Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good discussion, even a solid disagreement as long as it comes from a place of informed, enlightened sharing of ideas. I simply don’t get while we share a real love of this genre, so many fans seem to be wanting to have a bad experience, just so they can have the opportunity that the anonymous ejectronic voice gives them, to say toxic, juvinile things that, in my opinion are a waste of both the readers and their own time…I’m just saying…
