The Top 10 Toughest Heroines in Horror and Sci-Fi


The Top 10 Toughest Heroines in Horror and Sci-Fi

We run down our favorite fighting heroines in horror and sci-fi cinema history

Syfy’s kinetic and awesome hit sci-fi/action series Killjoys will return for its second season tomorrow night, August 2.

Following the dark adventures of bounty hunter Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and her pals John (Aaron Ashmore) and D’avin (Luke Macfarlane), the series spits these anti-heroes across the galaxy as they stalk the universe’s most monstrous criminals.

As Dutch, John-Kamen is a revelation, a powerhouse physical presence who uses her street (space?) smarts to navigate a merciless and hostile world that wants her dead , something she resists at every turn with bravado. She’s a fully realized character, emotionally complex and haunted by her past.

In honor of Killjoys’ triumphant return and to celebrate the amazing female on-screen characters that have preceded Dutch, we pick our top 10 toughest heroines from sci-fi and horror’s storied past.

Buckle in and let us know if you agree with our list of fantastic cinema’s most furious females…
