Women in Horror Day 20 - Anya Taylor-Joy

Today's pick for 'Women In Horror Month' is the very talented Anya Taylor-Joy.  Although new to the horror scene her first role will forever leave an impact on the genre.  'The Witch' is a horror film that will still be discussed 30 years from now. Anya gave a stellar performance and we can't wait to see what the future holds for her.  Everyone needs to do themself a favor, and go catch 'The Witch' in theaters right now.

Women in Horror Day 19 - Jennifer Love Hewitt

While Jennifer Love Hewiit hasnt exactly been active lately in the horror scene, she made the list for being what was  probably one of the most popular scream queens of the nineties. Star of 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' and it's sequel, the gorgeous actress helped cement the trend that the damsel in distress didn't have to be nothing but helpless eye candy. Thank you Jennifer for flipping the script and kicking ass.

Women in Horror Day 18 - Monique Dupree

Known by many as the first black scream queen and referred to as "The Original Gata" (a label she received in her music career), Monique Dupree is a hard working, multi-talented actress that has probably been in more Horror films than you can name at this point! On top of her accomplishments in the industry, she's also a mother of ten children - all of which are involved in the entertainment business as well. 

Her involvement in Horror films started very early on in her career, notably having met Lloyd Kaufman and landing a role in the Troma produced, 'Pot Zombies', she has since starred in nearly 70 films! Perhaps her work ethic is something that just runs in the family, as her brother too, keeps busy all the same. Maybe you've heard of him; Tony Todd? While he may be the candyman, he certainly doesn't pull off "sweet" and scary quite like Monique does.

Women in Horror Day 14 - Jodie Foster

Our third and final pick for our Valentine's Day themed, "Women in Horror Month" is the multi-award winning Jodie Foster. 

While she may not be as prominent an actor in the horror genre as some of the other women we've celebrated this month, her contribution isn't any less important. In fact, its her role as Clarise in 'Silence of the Lambs' that legitimizes her as being just as big a female icon as the rest of them., and her symbiotic relationship with Dr. Hannibal Lecter, that makes her the perfect choice to bookend our Women in Horror Valentine's Day celebration.

Women in Horror Day 13 - Robin McLeavy

Our second choice for the Valentine's day themed WIH celebration. Although her credit list in the genre is limited to two roles, one of them, 'The Loved Ones' left a lasting impression on us (and her in-movie crush, hehehe). Robin McLeavy, if you're reading this, we'd love to see you in more horror films, your silence since 'Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Hunter' has been torture...

 ...unless that was your plan all along!

Women in Horror Day 9 - Mary Elizabeth Winstead

From the burdened protagonist of 'Final Destination 3', to the impossibly hot and bubbly cheerleader in 'Death Proof', to the courageously strong heroine in 'The Thing', Mary Elizabeth Winstead has proven to be a highly versatile actor in the Horror genre. Regardless the role, she's ensured that we'll keep coming back for more.

What can we say, there's just something about Mary :-)
