The Good, the Bad and the Bogus: Modern Horror Heroines

Jan 02, 2013 Comments

Alexandra Daddario certainly made for a kick-ass heroine battling Graham Sutter in Bereavement, but can she take on Leatherface? Watching a slasher run around, chopping up helpless victims is almost always a good time, but the experience necessitates a strong leading lady. With a market currently oversaturated with sequels, prequels, reboots and just a few original ideas, we’re left with a wide range of heroines -- the good old charming fighters, the ones that are there to give the killer something pretty to chase and nothing more, and then there are those that land somewhere in the middle courtesy of an outlandish twist or wacky behavior.

Where will Daddario fall on the spectrum? We’ll have to wait until Texas Chainsaw 3D hits on January 4 to see, but in the meantime, check out the name these modern horror heroines made for themselves during their bloodbaths.
