The Arrow in the Head Show digs into the best Female Horror Icons

Why did we never get the female answer to Freddy Krueger? A long-lasting multi-film icon of the feminine persuasion? Today on The Arrow In The Head Show, John and Lance tackle their choices on which female villains have stood out to them over the years, who should have more of an impact on the horror world, and who is just plain bad-ass. Diving into classics like Night Of The Demons and Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II, to some B-movie schlock like Species and Hellraiser: Bloodline. There is something here for everyone, and we hope you agree with our picks and leave your choices in the comments below. So pour yourself a drink, it’s five 0′ clock somewhere, right? and join us as we give these fantastic characters their due.

Here’s some information on The Arrow in the Head Show:

We’re trying something a bit new here on Arrow In The Head. After many years behind the scenes, we’ve decided to take our sarcastic, booze-influenced style into the video age with The Arrow In The Head Show! Hosted by John Fallon aka The Arrow and Lance Vlcek, we will dig into not only the newest horror flicks hitting the big and small screens but also delve into the good, bad, and ugly of horror from the golden ages of the ’80s through the underrated 90s and maybe a bit beyond.
Something groovy and a tad rough around the edges, we are here to talk shop with a drink in hand, a bit of foul language, and a whole lot of heart.

This episode of the show was edited by Lance, and it was written by The Arrow and Lance.

In previous episodes of The Arrow in the Head Show, The Arrow and Lance have also talked about the Halloween franchise, the theatrically released movies in the Hellraiser franchise, the first three Child’s Play movies (plus the Chucky TV show), horror action movies, the first four Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, the films of Wes Craven, Stephen King adaptations, the troublesome Jeepers Creepers franchise, and the first three Return of the Living Dead movies. Three episodes can be seen below.
