The Horror Honeys: Friday Favorites ~ Horror Villain Gender Swap!

Friday Favorites ~ Horror Villain Gender Swap!

From the Buzzfeed video, If Women in Horror Films Were Played By Men

Gender has long been one of the most defining characteristics of horror, for better or worse. While women often portray screaming victims and final girls, it is rare that they get to play satisfying villains. The reverse can be said for men: always the villain, rarely the survivor. For those reasons, it's sometimes fun to play a little switch-a-roo with some of your favorite characters, and allow yourself to wonder just how different a movie could be if the main character's gender were different. So this week, the Honeys did just that: they took a horror favorite, and flipped the gender. These are the results!

Who would YOU do a gender flip on, if given the option? Let us know on Twitter, using the #horrorgenderswap!

Head Honey Kat ~ The Darkness in Legend… wouldn’t that have been a childhood mindfuck. 


Revenge Honey Linnie ~ Mark Lewis from Peeping Tom, female version please!


Sci-Fi Honey 2.0 Katie ~ I’d like to see a female serial killer in Maniac.


Hardcover Honey Jocelyn ~ I’d love to see the Oscar Isaac character in Ex Machina played by a scheming, smart woman.


Supernatural Honey Suzanne ~ A female Dr. Frankenstein. Ladies can be scientists too!
This is Ilona Massey in Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman.
But this is what she should look like.

Horror TV Honey Lisa ~ Female wackadoo in Black Christmas
You never really see Billy, so... snazzy makeup and long lashes!

Slasher Honey Chassity ~ Samara Morgan in The Ring… I want to see if it’d be as scary w/out all that hair in the face...or would a boy Samara just be an angsty Damien wannabe? 
Nope. The hair is necessary.

Zombie Honey Bella ~ Gender swap the family in The Woman - what an entirely different film/effect that would be.
Just... switch the way they behave.

Monster Honey Jennica ~ I'd like to see a male version of Carrie (1976). It would be an interesting experiment to see male bullies and a male victim.
We couldn't do it any better than this...
