My Five Favorite 80's Horror Movie Bitches
#1 Wendy, Prom Night (1980)
Ah, Wendy. The queen of all 80's horror movie bitches. She'll forever be jealous of Kim (played by saint Jamie Lee Curtis) but at least she has the love of lughead Lou. And one of the best chase scenes in slasher movie history.
#2 Judy, Sleepaway Camp (1983)
I can't think of anyone more outright mean than Judy in the first Sleepaway Camp. Was she jealous that the nice guy had eyes for Angela or did she really have the sharp sense to single out that weirdo from the beginning? Her side ponytail just screams I'm a bitch, doesn't it?
#3 Vivian, Midnight Offerings (1981)
Little House On The Prairie's and America's sweetheart Melissa Sue Anderson was on a roll in 1981. She played the distraught brain damaged and would-be killer in Happy Birthday To Me and even better, one mean bitch/witch who tries to lure The Walton's Mary McDonough to the dark side.
#4 Carol, One Dark Night (1983)
Was Carol more of a bitch for trying to scare the shit out of Meg Tilly or keeping her weird toothbrush obsessed friend around as a punching bag for some corpses from the beyond? Carol, like Wendy from Prom Night, will do anything to keep away the the advances of the man in love with the good girl.
#5 The Ladies of Curtains (1983)
The cast of CURTAINS may not be completely filled with outright bitches, but these ladies would do anything to get the role of a lifetime. And one of them steps up the fight for the role with dolls, hag masks and some murder.
