Vic’s Top 10: Best Horror Movie “Damsels in Distress”

Hi, everyone! I thought I’d put together a quick Top 10 today. It is nothing at all elaborate just a quick filler post. Like usual, gang, the list is no particular order and I am pretty darn sure I’ve left some off that may be more popular or more recognizable.

Chime in and let me know what you thought of the list and who should have been mentioned or included. These, though, come to mind more vividly for me…for now. Enjoy Everyone!

  1. Great top 10! Nice to see Olivia Bonamy from Them – not many I speak to have seen the film, which is a shame as its a great little thriller. Much better than the similar Funny Games and The Strangers. Laurie Strode would be Number 1 for me – nice pick!

    • Thanks! I’m glad you liked the post. Them was a good flick for sure and I really felt for Olivia’s character in it. You’re right, it is a great thriller. Overlooked and low key but still frightening as hell. Oh and Laurie as my No. 1 was a no brainer. She rocks. Thanks for stopping by, Dan!

  2. Great list off the top of your head! For me, however, a great damsel in distress ultimately extracts herself out of her own Hell. This means NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD’s Barbra wouldn’t be on the list. Then again, I guess that means you’d ultimately create a “Final Girl” list instead.

    • Never thought of it that way, Bill. Good perspective there. A “Final Girl” list should be next! 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed the post. Thanks for checking in. Always appreciated, good Sir!
