The Greatest Pumpkin
"The Evil Dead" Zombie Girls would be pretty awesome props! I'd just love to see a Pam Voorhees prop tho, that would be real nice!
A lot of the slasher movies these days have femaile heros. Just last night I bought and watched Wrong Turn 2 and of those left at the end it was a fem (real nice gorey movie btw).Sad but true. Horror chicks are overlooked in the world of movies,T.V. etc.
Also, I think in our culture we are trained to think of women as victims,weak, scared, and helpless . And most of all in need of a big he-man to step in and be the hero. This is very unfair and in our more "Modern and enlightened" times, most of us men know better!
Not all women are portrayed this way, Remember "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"
Or "Ripley" from Aliens ?
I like to see female villains and heroes! Times have changed and I wish today's TV. and movie makers as well as horror movies,would give up the old stereotypes of the poor weak woman.
If today's women have the guts to be a single mom and a collage student and work a full time job,all at the same time, I bet she could kill a vampire or two or defeat the mad doctor or BE the vampire or the mad doctor or the monster. I think the fainting heroin bit should be left to cinema history .
For what it's worth, I am in the process of making a life size "Lizzy Borden" and she will not look like she is about to bake some cookies for the kids.
