    Back in the 80s, Siskel and Ebert loved to talk about the cliche of women in peril to appeal to the audiences of slasher flicks. They never saw the bigger picture of these women as actresses making money by staring in these films. I also don't recall them ever mentioning that in a lot of these movies the victims were women but so were the killers. Here is a short list of movies where a woman turned out to be the killer:

    Night School
    Happy Birthday to Me
    Cheerleader Camp
    Friday the 13th
    Urban Legend
    Alice, Sweet Alice
    The Initiation
    Sweet Sixteen
    Silent Scream


    Please feel free to add to this list.

    There's also stuff like American Gothic, Ghostkeeper, Bloody Birthday, etc which features a female killer in addition to male ones.

    I thought I had written down Savage Lust, but apparently I didn't. So here it is.

    Since we did Sleepaway Camp, might as well throw 2 - 4 in there as well.

    Also, Killer Party if that counts.

    Didn't Strip Nude For Your Killer feature a female murderer? Haven't seen it for a while

    - she's in on it, anyway.
    Run, Stranger, Run
    Next of Kin
    - again, she's in on it.
    Stone Cold Dead
    Killer Workout
    Death Spa
    Rings of Fear


    My favorite was Edge of the Axe. When I first saw that movie, I hoped the killer would turn out to be who it was, and it made for an awesome ending. All-American Murder is an underrated little slasher that deserves more attention.

    Night screams had a lot of potential but fell flat due to low budget restrictions. Rather strange film, the worst acting I ever seen in the beginning was where the killer killed her mom and the dad found her body seconds later and calmly walks to the phone and says. hi I would like to report a murder. not freaking out or nothing. bad bad bad, But it was one of the few where the killer got away just like the dorm that dripped blood..
