Death seems to follow these killer hotties around everywhere they go.
<strong>12. Emma Bell </strong>-
Scare Cred: Final Destination 5, Frozen, The Walking Dead
Relative newcomer to the world of horror, Emma is fast on her way to becoming an icon of the genre...which means she’ll forever be hounded by obsessive fans. Welcome to a life of restraining orders and awkward photo hugs, Emma! Can you sign our lips!?! WHY NOT!?!
11. Shawnee Smith -
Scare Cred:Carnival of Souls, Saw, Saw 2, Saw 3 and Saw 6, The Grudge 3, voice in the upcoming game Lollipop Chainsaw.
If you lived through a Saw movie, consider yourself lucky. Make it through several and you must be some sort of god or Terminator robot. With all of Saw’s plot twists and trick endings, we can’t remember if Smith’s character became evil or a hero or if she was somehow related to Donnie Wahlberg. Maybe she was Donnie Wahlberg! Now it all makes sense.
<strong>10. Mary Elizabeth Winstead</strong>-
Scare Cred: The Ring Two, Final Destination 3, Black Christmas, Grindhouse
One of the newbies, Mary came storming out of nowhere armed with a blood-soaked résumé. Her cute-as-a-button looks belie the fact that she hangs around people who are about to be relieved of that heavy burden known as their head. We won't ever forgive Quentin Tarantino for putting her in a cheerleader outfit only to cut her out of most of Death Proof. Not cool, Q.
<strong>9. Linnea Quigley</strong>-
Scare Cred: (Deep breath) Don't Go Near the Park, Silent Night, Deadly Night, The Return of the Living Dead, Creepozoids, Night of the Demons, Witchtrap, Bloody Nasty, Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, Death Mask… Fuck it. You get the point.
Linnea has seen more blood than a hemophiliac in a slaughterhouse. She's been the go-to (and drop-through) horror girl since the early '80s, famous for her willingness to do terrible, terrible things while completely buck naked. She's a classic. Revere her accordingly.
<strong>8. Neve Campbell</strong>-
Scare Cred: The Dark, The Craft, Scream, Scream 2, Scream 3, Scream 4
Sure she always wears an expression like someone just burped jalapeño in her face, but that scrunched nose and those squinted eyes have helped her survive not one, not two, but four Scream installments. It's no wonder those movies reinvigorated the genre—your heroines don't come much sassier or sexier than Neve. Even if you have to settle for a PG-13 relationship.
<strong>7. Sheri Moon Zombie</strong>-
Scare Cred: House of 1,000 Corpses, Toolbox Murders, The Devil's Rejects, Grindhouse, Halloween, Halloween 2
Sheri may owe her entire horror movie career to her husband, but there's no way we could overlook someone with the name "Mrs. Zombie." We empathize with Rob—what else do you say to a smoking-hot blonde who's into really dark, sick shit other than "marry me immediately"? Sheri's the kind of girl you take home to mom only if your mom is also into tats and death metal.
<strong>6. Heather Langenkamp</strong>-
Scare Cred: A Nightmare on Elm Street, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, Shocker, New Nightmare
Before there was Neve, there was another wholesome brunette girl next door subjected to repeated mind-numbing horrors. Heather was an attainable beauty—she looked exactly like every girl that wouldn't talk to you in high school unless you were Johnny Depp…or a psychotic pedophile janitor. We all know which side of that fence we're closer to falling on. Bonus Info: Heather now works behind the scenes, making special effects for movies like Cabin in the Woods and make-up effects for Cinderella Man.
<strong>5. Jordan Ladd</strong>-
Scare Cred: Embrace of the Vampire, Cabin Fever, Broken Lizard's Club Dread, Madhouse, Grindhouse, Hostel: Part II
There's something about this petite powerhouse that seems to attract sick men who want to do sick things to her. Still, she remains plucky, even when flesh-eating viruses have chipped away most of her jawline. Before you leave a comment that says, "Club Dread isn't a horror movie!" we have three words for you: "Topless Gymnastic Sex." Moving on…
<strong>4. P.J. Soles</strong>-
Scare Cred: Carrie, Halloween, The Devil's Rejects
Whenever P.J. appeared in a movie, you could be sure of two things: Gratuitous breastage and a quick, unsavory death. Jamie Lee Curtis may get all the credit for Halloween, but she didn't share her outer beauty until Trading Places. P.J. was all "My character gets strangled to death by a guy in a white William Shatner mask? Can I be topless when he does it?" You just have to admire that, no matter who you are.
<strong>3. Kari Wuhrer</strong>-
Scare Cred: Thinner, Anaconda, Eight Legged Freaks, The Hitcher II: I've Been Waiting, Hellraiser: Deader, The Prophecy: Forsaken
The female Jeff Fahey, Kari is so entrenched in Cinemax's late-night lineup that they'll have to retire the entire network whenever she quits acting. Her movies tend to have colons in them, meaning: a) They are crap-ass sequels to much better films, and b) They went to video so quickly the editing was finished in the back storeroom of Blockbuster. But Kari remains game for everything, and hot in anything.
<strong>2. Ali Larter</strong>-
Scare Cred: House on Haunted Hill, Final Destination, Final Destination 2
Ali may not have crawled her way through as many franchises as some others, but she makes up for quantity with quality (but not movie quality, of course). The only thing that scared us about Final Destination was the thought that Ali might get killed early on, forcing us to sit through an hour of a whole new movie called People Who Aren't Hot and Deserve to Die.
<strong>1. Sarah Michelle Gellar</strong>-
Scare Cred: I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, The Grudge, The Grudge 2, The Return
Sarah has an impressive horror film résumé, but even if all she did was the television version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she'd top this list. Her version of the teen queen slayer made her an object of obsession for an army of geeks. She has since stayed away from the genre, but she'll be back. Oh yes. She'll be back. (According to our birthday wish.)
