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 10 – Brian Moreland:
Leading Lady: Karina Testa
A gang of young thieves flee Paris during the violent aftermath of a political election, only to hole up at an Inn run by neo-Nazis.
“The French horror movie Frontiers started out with a group of thieves escaping Paris during a riot and taking refuge at a bed and breakfast. The hapless gang quickly discovers that Nazi cannibals live at the inn. Yasmine (Karina Testa), a thin girl who’s newly pregnant, goes through a complete transformation as she’s terrorized by the cannibals who want to turn her into their Aryan baby factory. After chopping off her hair and getting covered in blood (ala Carrie) Yasmine shows the cannibals she’s a force to be reckoned with.”
Brian is an active member of the horror writer’s group Pen of the Damned.
