While Maven’s recent Top Ten Horror Hunks article was a big hit with the laides of the site, I figured why not give the guys a treat and come up with some “Top Ten Horror Hotties”. There are definately a lot of roles to choose from and it wasnt easy. I actually recruited several HM members to give me recommendations for this list, so this isnt just my opinions but a collection of our peers. Everyone on this list had at least two recommendations from the people I asked (except for one where I got greedy and added a personal favorite) and it turned out to be a nice mixed list of older names and newer names.
On a side note, we have many of our own horror hotties who frequent the site here at horror-movies.ca There is no disrespect meant to any of you if you’re not on the list. We love all you ladies for being really great people & sexy horror vixens and I have no doubt that you all deserve to be on here. Unfortunately the tough part is narrowing this list down to ten and leaving many great hot female horror roles unmentioned.
So here’s a list of the Top Ten Horror Hotties, complete with gratuitous photos and even a video. It was hard to find good quality sexy images for some of the roles, so I just enclosed some random sexy photos for some. Enjoy the list, and I look forward to hearing everyone agree and disagree with the list. (I’m ready for all the “how could you leave this person off?” )
10) Famke Janssen: House on Haunted Hill: This one is my personal choice, and I am quite sure that this is going to be the one that is probably disagreed upon the most and gets the “I cant believe you picked Famke over so & so” but too bad. Yes, there may be some other hot roles out there but Famke in House on Haunted Hill had an edgy sexyness with a real life feel to it that drives me crazy. There is just something about her model body in that little red dress combined with that devilsh & sultry personality that just gets me every time.
9) Jordan Ladd: Anything: While not a name that jumps right out at you, there is no doubt you have seen her being sexy in something over the last few years. With parts in Grindhouse(Death Proof & Thanksgiving), Hostel 2, Madhouse, Cabin Fever, and Club Dread she has been busy looking good all over the horror genre. She seems to have the spunky and high-energy type role down, but we have also seen a little more of her serious side. No matter which side she shows, there is now doubt that she looks damn good doing it.
8) Sheri Moon Zombie: The Devils RejectsWhile still getting her feet wet in the horror world, Sheri Moon Zombie has already left a hot impression on horror fans. She has looked great in everything she has done from The Toolbox Murders to Halloween, but her role in The Devils Rejects is her hottest work to date. She lucked out and got to play not only a sexy role, but a bad ass role as well. Never have low-rise jeans looked as good as they do when Sheri is inflicting pain on some poor victim.
7) Dyanne Thorne: Ilsa- She Wolf of the S.S.Who would of thought Nazi’s could ever be sexy? One look at Dyanne in her Kommandant outfit and you will almost forget that she is an evil, hardcore bitch running a concentration camp. Never will you find a more sadistic beauty than Thorne plays in the Ilsa quadrilogy. Without her combination of ruthlessness & sex appeal, the Ilsa series would never have worked.
6) Milla Jovovich - Resident EvilThere is very little that horror videogame adaptations have provided us….except for Milla Jovovich. I knew she was hot after seeing the atrocious sci-fi movie The Fifth Element, but once she started doing Resident Evil it sealed the deal. Putting her in skimpy outfits and strapping guns to her stunning legs gave her more bad ass sex appeal than I ever expected from a video game character. Shes got the perfect body mold for this role to be both strong and seductive. It’s a shame she was somewhat covered up more in part three compared to her previous films. Did I mention even that her eyes are sexy too?
5) Janet Leigh & Jamie Lee Curtis : Alright a two-for-one with this as the mother/daughter duo gets combined. While having some early on-screen sexyness in Touch of Evil, Janet Leigh really showed up as a hottie with her role as Marion Crane in Psycho. She was one of the first hot female protagonists in a horror film. Janet passed down her good looks to daughter Jamie Lee Curtis. Jamie Lee had numerous hot roles during the 80′s horror boom with films like Halloween, The Fog, Prom Night and Terror Train. Like her mother before her, Jamie Lee was able to add sex appeal to her strong protagonist roles which help her become the first real prominent modern scream queen.
4) Christina Lindberg- Thriller: A Cruel PictureHere is one from the exploitation world that thats not quite a hosehold name, so I was extremely happy that several of the people who helped mentioned Christina. I guess thats what happens when you look as dead sexy as she does in Thriller: A Cruel Picture. If you havent seen this movie, I suggest you do so as you will never find a sexier one-eyed, mute chick hellbent on revenge than Christina. It doesnt hurt that her eye patch is the biggest article of clothing she has on sometimes.
3) Linnea Quigley-Return of the Living DeadThis is a perfect example of why I got some advice on this list because I have never seen ROTLD(we’ll talk about that later) so I would of surely missed adding her to the list. After hearing what people had to say and looking up some footage, she definately deserves to be near the top of this list!
From what might just be the sexiest grave dance scene ever, Linnea delivers with what many horror fans believe to be one of the hottest performances in the genre.
2) Cassandra Peterson - Elvira, Mistress of the DarkTheres no way to have a Horror Hotties list without the female horror icon Elvira. She turned a local TV host character into a national figure with her charm and wit, but also with the sexy Vampiress look and great cleavage. Theres nothing hotter than a tight black dress and Elvira’s was as low-cut as they come. Combine the dress & cleavage with the bee-hive hair and the horror make-up and Cassandra became the sex symbol of the horror world.
1) Salma Hayek- From Dusk Til Dawn This one is almost a little unfair because I think Salma is smokin’ hot in almost anything she does. However, rarely does one get to see a hottie like her do a wonderful strip tease while wearing a large snake right before she turns into a vampire and tears the crowd apart. Plus, never has someone made drinking booze off their feet seem so appealing. Dont believe me? Watch the video that Geroge Clooney sums up perfectly: “Thats what I call a fuckin show!”
