Tenafly Viper’s Top 30 Wicked Women of Horror

There were candidates that I didn’t include due to strictness of category (such as Eli from Let the Right One In, and Angela Baker from Sleepaway Camp), and others have either been featured in previous categories (horror moms, killer kids), or were not in total control of their actions, and therefore do not entirely qualify (such as Reagan MacNeil from The Exorcist).
