The Piranha 3D (now on DVD and Blu-ray everywhere) sponsored “Hottest Babes in Horror” playoffs have come to an end with the stunning 30-year-old Eliza Dushku coming from behind to defeat goddess Diora Baird. Most moviegoers probably know Dushku best as spunky “bad girl” Missy Pantone in fluffy cheerleader movie Bring It On, but horror fans will always remember her for her role in 2003’s underrated backwoods slasher flick Wrong Turn, which had the olive-skinned sexpot running around in a clingy white tank top for the duration. Since then she’s remained close to the genre, by parlaying her television success as the rebellious “Faith” on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” into roles in two “horror-adjacent” Fox series, “Tru Calling” and Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”. More recently she has taken lead roles in strictly B-level fare like serial murderer flick The Alphabet Killer and “killer board game” movie Open Graves, and will next appear in the recently-announced horror-thriller Zoe with Freddie Prinze Jr. and James van der Beek.
