View Full Version : Female Slashers?


Roderick Usher

Are there any?

There are planty of "witchy women" like Carrie or Tamara

There are tons of female revenge flicks like Kill Bill, Sex and Fury, They Call Her One Eye, etc

But are there any female slasher flicks? Would you want to see one? What would you want out of one?

Sleepaway Camp is close as is the original Friday 13th - but they both play on the idea that the killer is a man before revealing it's a woman.

And yes, I am openly asking for ideas here - seems there is a real gap in the market, which is really rare in the horror genre.

***thank you, puppet for mentioning the idea***

female slasher dont work they are practical a female serial killer isnt as common as a man however if you do it then watch urban legends number 1.. she has a reason whereas many male slashers are acting without cause

if u do a women slasher she has to have a reason such as revenge on a lover, ect ect

Roderick Usher

so men can be pure evil, but women can't?

I'm finding that one a little difficult to swallow. It's overly simplistic.

Why not a female leatherface-type?

Deep Red had a female slasher.

i think a few of the other italian slashers were female as well.
If i can remember any of them I'll add them.


The reason i remember this was the huge continuity gap between the masked killer - glimpsed as an obviously larger man - to the female once she is unmasked.

also - Fri 13 - the origional was a female slasher

I would agree that female serial killers are more practical and kill with reason. However I dont think that a female slasher would not work. Why not have a female who is just as insane as a male slasher?

No i'm not young and naive i watch horror films nearly every night and i'm currently studying Media at college however i dont think a female would work as a serial killer without a purpose she needs a reason to kill

thats my personal opinion and if u look through history you will see that many female serial killers DIDNT act alone they had a partner and if they did act alone they had a reason to kill

yeah i have stuided this and read many many books on this

Shadow
01-17-2007, 11:00 AM
Hmmmmm sawmeg you do have a very good point there. I still do think it might be interesting (even if unusual) to see a female slasher in a film. Mainly to see how it would be done. I think I shall look into this more you have opened up my interest.

It has been a long time since I have seen Urban Legends but I think some on mentioned that there was reason so that would mean killer rather than slasher yes? (forgive me I am still learning hehe) and as for the other film well I will have to watch it.

but once again, like Fri 13th, Urban Legends and Deep Red - the killer is viewed as a man (or something neuter) for most of the film and the female aspect is used purely as a reveal, not as a substantive element of the horror.

urgeok
01-17-2007, 11:38 AM
the reason it doesnt work as well - yet - is mainly due to the difference in physical size and strength between women and men. (and yes, i know there are some big strong women and some small weak men - but for the general public - we're just built - and trained differently)

MS 45 used a gun ... now that is far more a believable scenario than someone using a lot of force while using a knife .. in most cases

a lot of films concerning the cops trying to solve the case - will not rule out the possibility of it beiong a woman .. X-files always would mention the possibility as well.

maybe its juts politically corect dialogue ..or thorough police work ..
but in that context it's usually mentioned.

Great points all round. However I still stick by what I said I would like to see a female slasher. Is it that unbelievable that a woman can be evil and/or insane enough to kill for no realy reason? Yes the method of killing may need to be different but the general idea would it really not work?

sawmeg
01-17-2007, 11:59 AM
i dunno it might work but you'd have to delve into why she became crazy/insane

i spit on your grave has a female killer but as i pointed out she starts killing her kidnappers who have gang raped her and beaten her i've got the dvd its actually a shit film

i think females are viewed differently but if we knew from the beginning it was a female it might be more exciting

in cherry falls you are lead to believe its a female killing al the way through it

A woman could be a great slasher

its a very valid arguement depending on how realistic you want it to be.
none of the films you cited i like - for the very reasons you mentioned .. except to be taken as a joke.

01-17-2007, 01:57 PM
Spider Baby is more along the right lines. The idea of a regressive genetic disorder turning people cannibal is a little campy, but it's better than some of the other cliches.

I wouldn't want a female slasher to be "funny" but most slasher films are inhenetly comedic. I mean there isn't a single scene of Jason Voorhees that's remotely scary - he's a goof. Like how Freddy describes him in FvJ as a big dog that doesn't know when to stop eating.

A woman of size and strength who simply snaps could be pretty damned frightening. Especially if she were trained to kill, like a returning soldier from Iraq with a wicked case of PTSD.

01-17-2007, 02:06 PM
we always expect a female to have a reason so maybe itll be fun not to have....okay so baby (vera ellen) in house of 1000 corpses and dr's is a part of the 'firefly' family which is a rip of the family in tcm series....and theres jasons mom acting out of maternal love.....and then the aptly named miss.loomis (lol) of scream 2 played by the excellent laurie metcalf....also with the maternal thing but maybe it would be good to have a female serial killer for the 21st century that carries more of a post feminist vibe and dosent have to have a reason

You know...a really good, really gory, really cool, post-feminist, fetishistic killer cheerleader flick could be a blast:D

She's not a killer cheerleader, she's a killer who just happens to be on the squad because she's so good at being phony - and she's OCD about working out and learning how to kick ass.

Wow again I missed a whole loada convo there. Had pages to read to catch up lol.

Well it was mentioned and I agree that females need no other reason to go crazy and become a slasher than males would (hell I know I have thought about it when life gets on top of me lol).

Sawmeg does have a point that in real life crime females very rarely kill without reason and most often have help (mind research will have to go into that point). However that does not mean a female slasher film would not/has not work/ed as after all it is just a film.

I shall look into trying to find the films you have all mentioned however with funds a bit low atm it may take me a while to gather them all together. I might have to start raiding from friends collections.

why dont you go do the same research i've done then comment for fuck sake i have read dozens on books on the subject okay in life most women kill with a reason or with a partner
whereas men dont give a reason to there crimes just look at ted bundy he had no reason he just did it it was a complusion

Roderick Usher
01-18-2007, 07:54 AM
Nancy Kantarian, my neighbor who stabbed her three little girls and burned the house down...she never gave a reason.

I get what you're saying Meg, there's always a reason, but men are more likely to be incapable of articulating this reason. It's all about the corpus collosum, the organ in the brain that allows the hemispheres to communicate. The organ is much larger in women than men. It's why whe you ask a man what he's feeling or thinking about, the first word that usually comes out of his mouth is "nothing" even if it's far from the truth. Ask a woman the same question and she's off and talking.

And TONS of female killers work alone. They tend to be serial poisoners and/or angels of death (nurses who give intentional overdoses) - yes I too research this shit, it's what I do for a living.

But I'm not talking about serial killers, I'm talking about mask-wearing mass murderers. Why not a woman? Honestly.

i have read dozens of book on the subject if you actually took the time to ask me why my posts are bad you'd find out i have mild dyslexia that affects the why i write/type i dont apperciate your fucking attitude just because you dont wanna accept my opinion

also i agree about the angels of death stuff but they normally have munchaustn by proxy they dont do it to kill they do it for the attention they get when they find a sick child or adult they enjoy it
and as for female posioners its normally for money or revenge so there'e still a reason

You never said it was your opinion, you said it was fact (and I dont FUCKING appreciate that). Women can be just as evil as men or mentally derranged so dont pretend women are all things nice because its completely wrong.

I know several dyslexic people and reading books is the last thing they would ever do because they lose their place, jumble the words, take nothing in or simply get bored.

You barely ever spell anything wrong (dyslexics barely spell anything correct), you just speak and type like a chav who didnt pay attention in school.

Ok then, you have no reason to lie, like I said I just havnt seen a dyslexic person spell as well you but in that case well done.

Women wackos can still kill for no reason like male wackos, or for the same mental reasons they might kill for (I have no idea what that might be as I'm not mental...I hope ;)). Obviously men kill more, but that could be a lot down to men often finding it easier to kill people, say physically and emotionally.

i just think its more believable for a male serial killer i know that sounds sexist and stuff but i just find it more believable however if its a masked killer like in urban legends then it probably would work depending on how it was worked

I'm actually studying serial killers in class right now, Sociology class. The statistics note that there are a very few number of female serial killers when compared to the amount of men. Most female killers do not do it alone, either... using a man or another woman as an accomplice. Most of the kills females do are also linked to people they are closely involved with, and their methods are much less brutal. Ie -> poison.

I'd like to see some crazy bitch going around and slashin' people to bits. But it's not logical. It would be too... unusual to really be effective. If there was to be a female movie, I bet you the killer would be portrayed as a raging, conniving, witty bitch. She'd use needles of poison. And have a very creepy smile. Also very slick, probably with black hair. Very thin, and feminine.

More like the girl from Audition?

Personally I'd like to see a strong woman slasher. Since when do slasher films have to be logical? Nothing like Basic Instinct of Single White Female but more of a big woman, almost like Kathy Bates, that just likes to slice people up.

Yes that is often the case, but some women are capable of brutal murders too. In general men have less of a problem with doing violent acts than women, thats understandable, but when talking about someone who hasnt premeditated a death and they are literally just mentally unstable, then anything goes.

Again pages to read on my return but all damned gd stuff. Personally I want to see a female slasher film with no reason behind it just a woman slashing people up lol. Films dont need to be based on facts and figures. Some films are just about the entertainment.

Really good points about real life crimes coming from both sides. I enjoyed reading that discussion.
