When it comes to slasher movies, a lot of us envision a helpless female victim being chased by a scary male killer. But what if it is the other way around? A female slasher killer? Yeah, you read it right. It has happened in movies before and in this list, we feature the most terrifying female slasher killers that we know.
La Femme is probably one of the most terrifying female killers you would see in a movie. The 2007 French film 'Inside' showcases Beatrice Dalle's amazing and very believable portrayal of a female slasher who kills anyone who stands in her way as she tries to poach an unborn a baby straight out of its mother's womb. Now, that role is straight-up scary.
This female killer is the perfect example of a real femme fetal, Mandy Lane turned from being the most popular in school to being the campus' resident slasher. Hunting for partying people as her prey, a deceivingly-good looking Amber Heard can really make it hard to believe how much blood someone like her can shed.
Lola is a vengeful character that you can't let slip from your radar as she is just as brutal as any other female killer you will find in movies. She appears in the Australian horror flick 'The Loved Ones' as a girl obsessed with knives and syringes as her murder weapons of choice and she uses them to kill a number of teenagers in her search for her perfect lover. Now, that's a brutal high-schooler you got.
Behind her innocent facade and unassumingly shy looks, Carrie shows how it is to be a true blue female slasher killer as Sissy Spacek showed in this 1976 film. Viewers most definitely got shocked after this girl turned an entire school gymnasium into a brutal killing room where no one can ever survive.
Who could ever forget this little but deadly female slasher that proved to be just as terrifying as everyone else? Tiffany is the one and only bride of Chucky that helped the famed iconic killer bring terror to horror movies as serial-killing lovers. Her partnership with Chucky proved to be a perfect recipe for murders.
Imagine a woman killing someone to resolve disputes? Yeah, that's exactly what housewife Beverly Sutphin did to satisfy her killer instincts as seen in 1994's 'Serial Mom'. The movie is a real comedy film but it doesn't change the fact that the appeal of a female killer with a motherly image can make films still pretty disturbing.
We all know Jason Vorhees as the ultimate hockey-masked slasher legend from the whole Friday the 13th franchise. However, Crystal Lake has had a long history of axe and knives-sponsored murders via Jason's mom himself. Yes, Mrs. Pamela Vorhees has had her share off crimes and this explains why Jason was that brutal of a slasher.
One of the more underrated female killers in movies would have to be Baby Firefly from 2003's House of 1000 Corpses. As a member of a psychopathic killing family, it is no surprise that Baby Firefly can easily kill loads of innocent passers-by as seen in the movie. She might be the youngest member of the Firefly family but there is no question with how terrifying of a killer she is.
