10 of Horror's Most Ruthless Women

On October 14th Lucky McKee's new film The Woman (review here), adapted from the Jack Ketchum novel, will open in limited release. It's the story of a feral woman and the unfortunate family who attempts to civilize her. Believe me, this chick needs more than finishing school.

To help usher in The Woman, we thought it would be cool to compile a list of 10 of horror's favorite psycho chicks. Yeah, scream queens are one thing, but these ladies are of a completely different ilk. These ladies bring the pain. Here are the 10, in no particular order ...

10 of Horror's Most Ruthless Women

Baby Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie in House of 1000 Corpses/The Devil's Rejects)
Let's start off the list with a psycho lady that's got it all. Baby Firefly is hot as hell, horny, vicious and absolutely devoid of mercy. But on top of her obvious physical beauty and bloodletting skills, Baby tends to bring a bit of levity to her scenes. Need I remind you of "Tutti fuckin' frutti"? Throughout the course of two films we see Baby harden and grow colder, culminating in the climactic finality of Rejects. Going down in a shower of gunfire and fighting right to the end, Baby Firefly was the definition of an antihero.
