        Rose McGowan as Cherry Darling in GrindHouse deserves a mention. (At the very least.)
        I just love the way she says the F-word!

              Of course it does! I second that notion.

              I also think April O'Neal was cool. (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)

              -Jordana Brewster in TCM:TB (Jordana covered in blood was a large portion of why I liked that movie)
              -Cherry Darling...a gun for a leg is fucking brilliant...I was psyched when I first saw those previews.

              more too, but I can't think right now. Just woke up ya see...

                Olivia Hussey is the most beautiful woman to ever live. If you dont believe me, watch Romeo and Juliet (196 and marvel at her untrammeled, innocent fifteen year old beauty. She looks like an angel, or a porcelan doll. Her eyes alone will make you weep. She's still striking now, presumably in her mid 50's.

                  Weaver from ALIEN. She created her own Archetype.

                    I'll go for Nancy from ANOES, very resourceful and smarter than the average scream queen.

                      Indeed, she's superb in these. The fear and haunting vertigo in The Beyond... Aaahhh!

                      To ad one to the list, I'd say CÚcile de France in Haute Tension; Sexy, feminine, deadly and talented!

                        I wonder there's non-scream queen female protagonists in horror films who is exactly like a male lead who mostly spends the entire film or much later in the film with a shotgun or any other weapon on her hand that goes around shooting/slicing whoever is the antagonists of the film? Although Riply from Alien is the closest one I can think of but there has to be others.
                        Nothing but a Bloodstained Raven....

                            Agreed. And I'll add Kirsty from Hellraiser, and Jamie-Lee's Lori.

                              Id have to go with Nancy from NOES as she isnt the typical airhead slut whos only purpose is to get laid , she actually has some smarts abut her.

                              Second choice would be Laurie from Halloween. She is so innocent and undeserving of what happens to her.
