Gore and girls make a killer combination, and these lesbian characters kicked some serious ass in the realm of horror. Check out 10 of the most badass, awesome lesbian characters in horror movies! (this is by no means a comprehensive list - add your own in the comments!)

1. Maddy Killian

Played by: Caitlin Stasey

Movie: All Cheerleaders Die (2013)

Caitlin Stasey is my heart's one true love, especially when rocking a cheerleader outfit and some wicked dominion over life and death.

2. Marie

Played by: Cécile de France

Movie: High Tension (released as Switchblade Romance in some regions, 2003)

Although Alex & Marie's tension is never fully consummated, this movie still gives great head...

3. Bathory

Played by: Monika Malácová

Movie: Hostel 2 (2007)

I'm about as gay as they get and I don't know if I've ever seen anything quite as sizzlingly homoerotic as this mad siren bathing in the blood of a freshly sacrificed virgin.

4. Susan

Played by: Moynan King

Movie: Make A Wish (a.k.a. Lesbian Psycho, 2002)

Amusingly enough, director Sharon Ferranti told The Advocate:

“You want to know how lesbians reacted to the nudity? These super serious political girls? ‘How come they didn't have bigger tits?’”

5. Tomboy

Played by: Athena Karkanis

Movie: Survival of the Dead (2009)

Cute army butch fighting hordes of the undead? Be still, my beating heart!

6. Samantha Williams

Played by: Najarra Townsend

Movie: Contracted (2013)

As you can see from the pic above, she's also got great taste in refrigerator adornments.

7. Vanessa Valdeon

Played by: Eva Mendes

Movie: Urban Legends: Final Cut (2003)

Remember that time Eva Mendes played an ill-fated lesbian in the underrated sequel to teen horror hit Urban Legend? Yep, me too.

8. Jack

Played by: Riley Keough

Movie: Jack & Diane (2012)

Riley Keough and Juno Temple are totally adorable as young lovers Jack & Diane, but bear in mind the original casting for this pair: Olivia Thirlby and Ellen Page!

9. Tammy Visan

Played by: Stacy 'Fergie' Ferguson

Movie: Planet Terror (2007)

Shout out to Marley Shelton as Tammy's bisexual anesthesiologist lover, Dr. Dakota Block, too!

10. Polly

Played by: Anna Faris

Movie: May (2002)

Anna Faris excels as a cheeky Sapphic predator in this delightfully batshit insane movie about a lovelorn female Frankenstein intent on making a monster.
