A Damned Take on Women in Horror Films
The Guy’s Point of View!
In honor of Women in Horror Month 2017, I asked six male horror writers for their top-five favorite horror films staring strong leading ladies and why they loved them so much. So, without further ado…
Day 02 – Lee A. Forman:
Leading Lady: Shauna Macdonald
A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators.
“The Descent resonated with me when I first saw it. It took hold, brought me to a place I’d not been in a long time. I was dragged down with the characters and mesmerized by the gradual change taking place within this film’s leading lady, Shauna MacDonald. As she faced impossible odds her primal brain gradually took over. A brutality of her own was released, to be feared even by the horrid creatures she faced at every turn.”
Lee A. Forman is a fiction writer from the Hudson Valley, NY. His fascination with the macabre began in childhood, watching old movies and reading everything he could get his hands on. He’s a third generation horror fanatic, starting with his grandfather who was a fan of the classic Hollywood Monsters. His work has been published in multiple horror magazines, anthologies, and podcasts. When he’s not crafting horrifying creatures and tales of terror, he spends his time editing, playing guitar and writing music.
Lee is an active member of the horror writer’s group Pen of the Damned.
