Topic: Horror movies where the soft kids turns out to be hard as nails

By hard as nail I mean rough and ready? Can handle himself? Tough.

I love these type of films.  Can anyone list some movies where a stupid cowardly character turns out to be the hard nut later on.

Thanks. smile

I guess you could say Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is one of them films, with Tommy being played by Corey Feldman.

Cabin in the Woods- the useless stoner saves her ass/is unaffected by everything.

Re: Horror movies where the soft kids turns out to be hard as nails

The black guy from the original "Night of The Demons" toughens up the end and saves the white chick.

Re: Horror movies where the soft kids turns out to be hard as nails

Ha ha, I knew there would be a risk of giving the endings away. Thanks.

Therr are a few out there but I'll save some from the rest. My response is Danny from the shinning.

*Spoiler*

In Troll 2, that one guy turns into a tree.  I'd say that would wood be hard.


I'll let myself out now.

FAT KID in Monster Squad

Carrie- the shy girl that is picked on by every one, including her mother, ends up being very powerful and dangerous.

Re: Horror movies where the soft kids turns out to be hard as nails

Not the soft kids turning out to be hard as nails but in horror movies trope , the black dude always dies first except in halloween resurrection where Busta Rhymes turned super badass and hilariously kicks Michael myers ass with Kung Fu and survive his wrath.

Let The Right One In, little Vamp Girl didn't seem very scary or badass but at the end damn she is. About the same thing for the lil' guy, he even takes weight training courses.

Evil Arnie one of my favorite horror characters! "A toast to death. To the shitters of the world in 1979"!

The Geeky girl in Trick'R'Treat...

AND Anna Paquin and her Werewolf friends. smile

Not 100% sure how much this one applies, but exothermic's icon reminded me, kinda The Loved Ones?

I mean, we as the viewer know that something's wrong with Lola basically from the beginning, but if you passed her on the street or something you wouldn't be able to tell that she's, well, a psychopath. So that one you MIGHT say can fall under that category, but not really.

Re: Horror movies where the soft kids turns out to be hard as nails

I would have to say Dawn O'Keefe in the movie Teeth. She did have a purity ring and morals but once she realized  what her genitalia had {vaginal dentata} and what it was capable. Also, people tried to sexually abuse her in the movie and that's when she shows her true colors at those trying to harm her.

WEIRDO aka WEIRDO:  THE BEGINNING. also the original FADE TO BLACK.  Actually, this is a pedictable cliche by now, don't you agree?

Re: Horror movies where the soft kids turns out to be hard as nails

Somebody mentioned THE SPACE CHILDREN.   I'd originally seen this theatrically with COLLOSUS OF NEW YORK.  Quite liked it at the time and when I saw it on TV more than a decade later, I didn't like it AS MUCH as the first time, but still thought it was worth watching.
