Hollywood's sexiest horror movie chicks

     Next

Even as Sunny Leone turns up the “babydoll” heat in this week’s Ragini MMS 2, the fact is that horror films and hot women have been an amazing combination right from the get go.

Here, then, is a look at Leone’s predecessors: women in recent horror films who’ve turned up the heat in their respective films, who’ve really taken the edge off mediocre films and made decent horror so much better.

Thank you, ladies.

10. That girl from The Unborn poster

David S Goyer’s horror movie attempt doesn’t really go anywhere, though men around the world may well have been tempted to explore the film anyway despite the bad reviews - thanks to the girl on the poster, Odette Yustman.

Most of us first met Bowden as the distractingly sexy assistant on Tina Fey’s 30 Rock, and the stunner lived up to expectations in this solidly quirky horror entertainer. This is what all horror victims should look like.

Berry was all over the place in the weird Gothika but she played her craziness well, her character teeming with sexuality. She was scary and sexy all at once, and having Robert Downey Jr to play against certainly didn’t hurt.

Jack Frost is a strange little horror-comedy with some very original touches, but it mercifully refuses to deviate from the hot-victim cliche: Shannon Elizabeth looks her hottest as she meets her death at the hands of Frosty. In the bathtub, to boot.

Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof might not be your idea of a horror movie -- though it is a low-budget exploitation film about a mad stuntman who murders young girls in his car - but try arguing with the bouncy hotness of Winstead. Wow.

5. Camilla Belle in When A Stranger Calls

There’s something quite ridiculously hot about how Belle goes from innocent and seemingly naive babysitter to the insanely in-control defender when she’s on the receiving end of a threat. And boy, does she look good with a knife in her hand.

4. Eliza Dushku in Wrong Turn

Dushku fills out a tanktop unbelievably well in this film even as cannibals chase and corner her. She manages to fend off more than her fair share but eventually begs for her life - in vain. The cannibals might have been after more than her innards, honestly.

It wasn’t particularly scary - or even particularly watchable - but everyone who did sit through Diablo Cody’s Jennifer’s Body did it for Ms Fox, who slithered through the film like a woman who possessed us more than she was possessed. Wow.

2. Jessica Biel - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

Horror movie remakes are often just tackier versions of the original, but the way Biel was used in this remake - with her white vest knotted above her navel - makes us rethink the very notion of remakes. She makes it worth watching.

Oh, we can forget everything else about this slasher film but those hot pants will live on in our heads forever.
