Top 26 sexiest women in horror

sarah michelle geller as buffyOver the years, horror films have produce some of the sexiest girls ever seen on screen.

Whether it’s an attractive blonde kicking the crap out of anything with sharp teeth, sultry vampires wanting to suck you dry or busty babes who are destined to be hacked to pieces the minute they decide to go off to the woods with the local jock, it’s a winning formula.

If we were psychologist we would say their appeal has something to do with wanting to rescue damsels in distress.

But we actually think it has more to do with the fact horror films are usually stocked with a seemingly never-ending supply of teenage girls desperate to get their kit off.

But just who are the real Queens of Scream?

Well, Hecklerspray has decided to come up with a list. Just take in mind there are whole load of horror babes to filter down into just 26, so please feel free to suggest your own. Not that you usually need any encouragement.


26. Kim Poirier
Notable horror appearance: Dawn of the Dead (2004)

She’s the one in the clip prancing around in her underwear if you are not sure.

25. Adrienne Barbeau
Notable horror appearances:
The Fog (1980), The Twilight Zone (1985), Creepshow (1982)

She’s the radio host with the sexy voice in The Fog. Still not sure, OK, she was one of the sexy girls in the lamborghini that kept flashing her breasts at policemen in Cannonball Run. Now you got it!!
Anyway, enjoy the clip of her in The Fog trailer. It’s terrible.

24. Anne Parillaud
Notable horror appearance:
Innocent Blood (1992)

She’s so sexy in Innocent Blood you forget just how terrible it is.

23. Angie Everhart
Notable horror appearance:
Bordello of Blood (1996)

Has to be the sexiest ever portrayal of a vampire prostitute.

22. Soledad Miranda
Notable horror appearances:
Vampyros Lesbos (1971) and a whole lot more

True scream queen.

21. Jennifer Tilly
Notable film appearance:
Bride of Chucky (1998)

Not sure about her acting, but she’s certainly hot.

20. Shannon Elizabeth
Notable horror appearances:
Thir13en Ghosts (2001) and, errr, Jack Frost (1996)

Check out the clip. Humped to death by a snowman. That’s no way to die.

19. Naomi Watts
Notable horror film:
The Ring

Of course, the clip I wanted to put in is the one in Mulholland Drive, but I just could not justify it.

18. Rose McGowan
Notable horror appearances:
Planet Terror (2007), Scream (1996)

The hottest thing on, errrr, one leg.

17. Jenny Agutter
Notable horror appearance:
An American Werewolf in London (1981)

Jenny Agutter as a slutty nurse. Brilliant.

16. Neve Campbell
Notable horror appearances:
Scream series (1996-2000)

Would have been higher, apart from the fact that I personally do not rate her. I just knew if I missed her out, people would be very unhappy.

15. Jamie Lee Curtis
Notable horror appearances:
Halloween series (1978-2007), The Fog (1980)

A true scream queen with one of the finest racks in Hollywood. Not bad for a man.

14. Ingrid Pitt
Notable horror appearances:
Countess Dracula (1971)

A true horror legend and sexy to boot.

13. Kate Beckinsale
Notable horror appearances:
Underworld series (2003-2006)

We’re not huge fans of Kate Beckinsale or Underworld, but you got to just love that outfit.

12. Fay Wray
Notable horror appearances:
King Kong (1933), Doctor X (1932), The Vampire Bat (1933)

Great pair of lungs.

11. Salma Hayek
Notable horror appearance:
From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

One of our favourite ever scenes.

10. Asia Argento
Notable horror appearance:
Land of the Dead (2005)

Asia is perfect scream queen material: she’s tough, sexy and isn’t afraid to get her breasts out.

9. Janet Leigh
Notable horror appearance:
Psycho (1960)

Now that’s what I call a shower scene.

8. Edwige Fenech
Notable horror appearances:
Hostel II (2007), Case Of The Bloody Iris (1972)

Very sexy, French-born Italian actress more noted for her ‘erotic comedies’. By the way, she’s not the one getting stabbed at the beginning of the clip. She’s the dark-haired on a bit later.

7. Monica Keena
Notable horror appearance:
Freddie v Jason (2003)

OK, the film was a load of rubbish, but she was certainly worth watching. Not sure why they deleted the scene above though.

6. Eliza Dushku
Notable horror appearances:
Wrong Turn (2003), Buffy, Angel…

5. Barbara Steele
Notable horror appearances:
Too many to list

One of the greatest and sexiest scream queens of all time. But don’t take my word for it. Let Clive Barker fill you in.

4. Linnea Quigley
Notable horror appearances:
The Return of the Living Dead (1985) and loads more

A true horror legend. That scene in The Return of the Living Dead will live long in the memory. OK, the clip above is not that great.

3. Anna Falchi
Notable horror appearance:
Dellamorte Dellamore (1994)

She’s so sexy even Rupert Everitt fancies her.

2. Jennifer Love Hewitt
Notable horror appearance:
I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

We just love the Hewitt.

1. Sarah Michelle-Gellar
Notable horror appearances:
Buffy, I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997), Scream 2 (1997), The Grudge (2004)

It was a tough call between her and Jennifer Love Hewitt, but Buffy wins by the fact she kicks ass and is in more horror films. OK, the clip has nothing to do with horror, but who cares.


  1. Alex says

    Personally, I don’t want to sit through 26 fucking Youtube clips to maybe get a few seconds of the person you’re talking about.

    Try screencaps next time.

  2. says

    You are missing the absolutely obvious, Ms. Barbara Crampton! She was awesome in Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Castle Freak and was also wonderful in a smaller role in Puppet Master.

    To leave her off your list is downright blasphemous, sir!

  3. geo says

    Elvira? I mean, I like the list…I’d make my changes and everything, but you might want to make it a top 27 and put Elvira in there.

  4. no good says

    No Melinda Clarke from return of the living dead3? This list officially sucks beyond redemption.

  5. jason says

    i second the “where is sheri moon zombie?”… i figured i wasn’t seeing her because i was about to find her at #1… nope

  6. Awful list says

    Jennifer Love Hewitt #2? Sarah Michelle-Gellar #1? I’d go so far as to say they have no place on the list period. I can only assume you wrote the list while whacking it to your DVD box sets of Party of Five, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Your list is a pile of fail and lose.

  7. Steph says

    This list is so out of order and lame. Whoever was involved in assigning ranks needs help and glasses.

  8. says

    This top was clearly created just so you could write something about ‘buffy’. Get over it, shes definitely NOT number one. I like her but she isn’t that great. You left out A LOT of actresses, get a better grasp of the media before you try to contest it.

  9. Lurker says

    What about Julie Adams as Kay Lawrence in Creature from the Black Lagoon? She was dynomite.

  10. SarahMichelle says

    So, it was a decent list.
    BUT I must ask, where is Sherry Moon Zombie?
    She BY FAR deserves a place on here.

    Also, Shawnee Smith (Saw Series).
    I think she is down right gorgeous.
    I was dissapointed not to find her on here.

  11. I'd put a steak in her says

    I applaud your list – but, the only thing wrong with Sarah Michelle Gellar is that there are no pictures on google of her with her top off.

  12. Louis says

    I don’t know how Sarah Michelle Gellar OR Jennifer Love Hewitt make it to anywhere near the top 5! Especially since Hewitt was in the tabloids for her fat nasty cellulite ass!!! and Gellar is more on the ‘Cute girl’ side than ‘Sexy’. I’ve never seen any sexy side from her.

    Milla Jovovich and Naomi Watts should DEFINITELY be in the top 5 along with Eliza Dushku AND Kate Beckinsale! now that’s SEXY!!!

    AND ONLY GO BACK AS FAR AS THE 90s! Nobody cares about Fay Wray from 1932! she’s an old lady now if she’s still alive! C’mon Son!

  13. Kitten says

    Where the heck is Sheri Moon Zombie(house of 1000 corpses, devils rejects) and Danielle Harris(hatchet 2, blood night)!? xDDD
