Nothing is cooler than a female psycho unless of course its in real life. If we are discussing horror and horror thrillers as well as sci-fi horror, a female nutcase is welcome once in a while. Of course, if she is your ex or your current flame, you have a problem!
I think its more realistic when a female psycho is unattractive or even attractive but very unassuming and able to come in the guise as a librarian looking chick or an old lady or something cool like that.
Unfortunately, Alex has a serious case of attachment disorder or borderline personality disorder or something. She just can't seem to let go of the married man she had a one night stand with. Although Dan finds Alex to be a handsome woman and is attracted to her, he loves his hot but sort of boring wife. Alex is crazy so she's exciting, you see.
Alex begins to stalk Dan and the story goes on, but Alex was certainly a fabulous villainess, don't you agree!?
Yeah, it becomes sort of a problem when Heddie colors her hair and cuts it in the exact same style as Allison Jones in the film and she realizes she has a "single white female" on her hands. Of course, that figure of speech was coined from this very film. Who would have ever thought Jennifer Jason Leigh could be such a super psycho?
Ms. Wilkes is so enamored with the writer, Paul Sheldon's book character, Misery Chastain that she imprisons him and makes him "unkill" the character he has killed off in his book after rescuing him from a car accident in which he breaks his leg. Annie is a nurse and sort of nurses him back to health, but she's really just keeping him immobile and cut off from the outside world so her favorite writer can write at her will!
