While horror movies are always violent and messy, some characters just get it worse. I mean, it’s one thing to be gutted and killed on the spot like most genre victims, but it’s another thing to suffer multiple wounds, fight your way through a majority of the film, and then be killed off anyway, as your efforts only prolonged your suffering. Nice try and all, but was it really worth getting all your limbs broken, an eye ripped out, and THEN your throat cut open? Gosh, if I ever have to die in a slasher movie, just make it quick and get it over with.
With that said, Remy and I would like to honor those characters who took their lumps, kept on fighting, and might have even been rewarded for their heroics. Since there’s something wildly uncomfortable about seeing women thrust into such violent scenarios though, I was hesitant to tackle this article – until Remy volunteered to split our picks by gender. Yes, that means I’ll be taking four male examples, and Remy will be listing four female examples. Don’t worry, I’m sure it will be extremely tasteful. *GULPS* *DRINKS WATER* *PULLS ON SHIRT COLLAR AND MAKES NERVOUS FACE*
Alright, let’s get to it!
