    I had another idea for a poll, so here goes...

    Horror movies (at least the slashers I love) always have a heroine. Not the drug heroin, the girl who gets the bad guy.

    So who's your favorite?

    I'm talking characters, not actresses, though I know some are inseparable. So I've tried to list both. I know, I'll favor the Big Three Slasher Series, but they're just so traditional...

    That's what "Other" is for, anyway.

    Happy voting!

    Laurie Strode is definitely the character with the greatest development throughout the series, and therefore it is a no brainer that I vote her. She is more than a pretty face like in all the other slasher films, she represents innocence in the first two films, and trauma and disfunction in H20. Jamie Lee is undoubtedly the most talented actress of all those listed, and she really gives Laurie plenty of depth and credability. She didn't earn the name Scream Queen for nothin'! :)

    Great poll Ace...but where's Dana Kimmell?! :D

  4. Had to vote fav female to be Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley in the Alien films! What a powerful persona & only Sigourney can make a character like Ripley believable!

    AceRim,
    Your thread is very similar to moogong77's thread "Favorite female in horror"

    My vote went to Sigourney Weaver because she is the MOTHER of all heroines!

    My second choice would have been either Heather Langenkamp or Jamie Lee Curtis. Heather did a really outstanding job in New Nightmare, one of her best performances yet.

    ...as for Jamie, i second rhett's opinions. :)

    great poll! :D

    I would have voted for Jennifer Corvino but I think Heather Langenkamp was slightly better in A Nightmare On Elm Street.

    I voted for Laurie Strode, so I guess I'm thirding rhett's opinion. :p

    Another one for Ms. Strode. Nancy Thompson would be my next choice.
    Amy Steel's Ginny is my favorite heroine from the F13 series. It was a treat to see this actress in April Fool's Day.

    Kristy Cotton (Ashley Laurence) would be another good choice.
