Slashers in which WOMEN are the killers (Spoilers)

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.

Night Ripper
Blood Frenzy
Dear Dead Delilah
- 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.
