Top Ten Female Horror Babes of All Time!

1.  Vampira - Plan 9 From Outer Space - The late Maila Nurmi as of 2008 was a Finnish-American actress who created and portrayed the character, Vampira. She was television's first female horror hostess and appeared in Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space.  Vampira has a noticeably tiny waist and is clad in a very tight black dress much like Morticia Addams and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

 You can watch the whole film, Plan 9 From Outer Space Here on YouTube for free!

2.  Morticia Addams - The Addams Family - Morticia Addams is the mother of Pugsley and Wednesday Addams in the Addams Family Show and Movies.  The original actress who portrayed Mrs. Addams was Carolyn Jones in the TV series in the 60's and she was portrayed by Anjelica Huston in The Addams Family 1991 Movie and Addams Family Values in 1993.  Daryl Hannah played Morticia in the 1998 film Addams Family Reunion. Ellie Harvie played Morticia in the revival series, The New Addams Family. 

3.  Lily Munster - The Munsters, The Munsters Today, and Mockingbird Lane - Lily Munster, Countess of Shroudshire née Dracula is a vampire and the mother of the Munster Family in the CBS sitcom The Munsters, originally played by Yvonne De Carlo.  Lee Meriwether portrays Lily in The Munsters Today and Portia de Rossi takes on the role of Lily in Mockingbird Lane.

4.  Elvira - Mistress of the Dark - Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (Cassandra Peterson) appears as the ultra-sexy 1988 horror comedy show hostess much like a modern Vampira in her feature film debut, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

5.  Tiffany Ray (Charles Lee Ray's Gal - Child's Play) - much like Chucky, is a killer doll who has an addiction to killing, but often feels remorse after doing so.  She even calls an addiction support line in The Seed of Chucky, because she wants to stop killing. 

She appears in two Child's Play Series movies so far and will appear in the next one.  Jennifer Tilly portrays Tiffany before she turns into a doll in The Bride of Chucky and plays herself, the actress in The Seed of Chucky. Jennifer Tilly continues to be the voice of the doll when Tiffany's spirit enters the doll.

6.  Mother Firefly (House of 1,000 Corpses & Devils Rejects) - Gloria Firefly is the sexy mommy of the Firefly Family, which includes of Rufus T. Firefly, Tiny Firefly, and Vera Ellen "Baby" Firefly. She is also the "adoptive mother" of Otis B. Driftwood.  She is a terrible flirt, even to her victims. 

She appears as mom in both House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, although she is portrayed by two different actresses, the first being the recently late Karen Black and the latter, Leslie Easterbrook.  Mama Firefly allowed her kids to kill and helped them get rid of the bodies.  She also shot and killed George Wydell.  Although just as evil and ruthless as Otis and Baby, she loves her kids to pieces.

George's Wydell's younger brother kisses and simultaneously stabs Mother Firely multiple times in the abdomen in a very creepy and sexual manner until she bleeds to death. 

7.  Baby Firefly (House of 1,000 Corpses & Devil's Rejects) - Vera-Ellen Wilson was portrayed by Sheri Moon Zombie in House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil'sm Rejects.  Mother Firefly and Captain Spaulding, a very creepy clown who sells chicken in an oddity museum, are Baby's parents.

Baby is literally psychotic.  When she was 16, Otis B. Driftwood, a violent psychopath, was taken in by her family as her brother.  He was particularyclose to his adoptive family, especiallyl his sister "Angel Baby", a nickname later shortened to "Baby".  He and Baby eventually as adults began a cross-country murder spree.  They scrapbooked the whole thing.

She was super at luring victims, because she was cute and pretty.  She was sort of like the Marilyn Munster of the Firefly Family.  Baby is shot down by the police her dad, Captain Spaulding and her adopted brother, Otis.

8.  Mrs. Lovett - Sweeney Todd - Demon Barber of Fleet Street - Mrs. Lovett appears in many adaptations of Sweeney Todd.  She has had numerous names.  In every version of the story in which her character is included, Mrs. Lovett is in business with Mr.
Sweeney Todd, a barber and serial killer.  In some adaptations, she is his lover. She makes and sells meat pies made from the meat of the barber's slain victims. 

In most versions of the story, Mrs. Lovett has no children and is a widow.  Very rarely, she has a husband, Mr. Lovett.  Before she goes into business with Sweeney Todd, she is very poor and runs a nasty, dirty, rat-infested meat pie establishment. 

Although she doesn't mind taking dead people meat to fill her pies, she feels bad for orphans in most adaptations she is seen as charitable to children in need and is sometimes a foster mother to children without parents.


9.  Akasha (Queen of the Damned) - Queen Akasha (Queen of the Damned), was the Queen of Egypt around 5,000 BC (in the movie, anyway).  She was sleeping in her tomb (hiding) until Lestat woke her with his music.  The gal was effing nuts and wanted to kill all of humanity and many vampires, too, but Lestat was whipped. 

Akasha is the first vampire created and was beautiful.  Her character is much like the equivalent of an evil, black-hearted, conceited Nefertiti if she were a vampire: cruel, selfish, and ruthless.

10.  The Bride of Frankenstein - lsa Lanchester portrays the original Bride of Frankensein, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.  An adaptation of the book, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was released in 1985.  Jennifer Beals portrays Eva, a woman created much like the orignal "Frankenstein" monster, who is unnamed.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994) ends with Dr. Frankenstein reconstructing and bringing back to life his dead bride, murdered by "The Monster" portrayed by Robert Dinero. 

Helena Bonham Carter portrays the stitched together bride with most of her hair missing from her head and a droopy eye.  She is stitched together noticably and is more grotesque than the original and the 80's verison of Frankenstein's bride.
