  • Best women-in-jeopardy flicks?

    I'll start off with Sleeping with the Enemy and Panic Room. Anyone else?

    Dude, you might as well say "best movies with actors in them."

      No.

      This is a specific kind of (sub)genre. It has a female protagonist who is usually fighting against male aggressors/suppressors and can cross over into other genres like sci-fi, political, crime, adventure, etc.

      Red Eye
      Cellular
      The Net
      Untraceable
      Silence of The Lambs
      Enough
      Anything with Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman
      Positive outcomes. Only.

              Chopper Chicks in Zombietown (1989)

              Typical, tongue-in-cheek Troma film fare, this comic cult fave gives us a pack of rough 'n' tumble biker chicks who stop in the hick desert town of Zariah, only to find that some whacked-out scientist has been killing off the local townspeople and resurrecting them as zombies. It's up to the Chopper Chicks, led by runaway housewife Dede (Jamie Rose) and bike dyke Mae (Martha Quinn) to square off with the undead. Complicating matters: a school bus (loaded with blind kids) that has broken down just outside of town.

                Yeah... but the title of the thread is "women-in-jeopardy", not woman.

                So... the original Black Christmas. Especially since the women are Olivia Hussey, Margot Kidder and Andrea Martin. Kidder is a foul-mouthed hoot in this one.

                        Well, sure... but is it her who's in jeopardy?

                          I think there was another thread about this exact genre not too long ago. Might try searching for it, see if something comes up.

                            That's that Audrey Hepburn one where she plays a blind woman, right?
