  • Female serial killer movies?

    hey guys -- thinking about writing a "female serial killer" / black widow-type script but need to look at how prior scripts were structured....
    I can think of one movie -- "Mother" -- with this type of female lead. Can anyone think of any others?
    Thanks.

    I believe MONSTER was about a female serial killer. maybe BASIC INSTINCT too.... Also NATURAL BORN KILLERS had a female serial killer, AMERICAN PSYCHO 2 as well.

      BLACK WIDOW.

      FRIDAY THE 13th.

      MONSTER is a great film.

      But all of these are very different films, and MONSTER (based on a true story) is a completely different story than BLACK WIDOW (title pretty much tells all - but story is about FBI agent who befriends her... and maybe becomes her) and MS. 45 (a revenge flick that's kind of like DEATH WISH). Basically, whatever your *story* is will dictate how it is told.

        Can't think of any examples that haven't been mentioned, but I want to say good luck, and this is a good thing.

          No, she can also use an iron, a mop, a hoover, a washing machine...

                Not quite a serial killer, but maybe the movie, "Mother's Day"

                    Is this a slasher or a thriller? Because the structure is really about the genre - in my opinion - and all you is to change the sex of the killer.

                        I'll second John Water's SERIAL MOM...followed by SLEEPAWAY CAMP.

                          THE BRIDE WORE BLACK by francois truffaut is excellent.

                            Well, if you're going to mention The Bride Wore Black then you might as well mention stuff like Lady Snowblood and Kill Bill.

                            By the way, it's important to note that the distinction between a killer and a serial killer is that the serial killer's killing share a pattern in at least three separate murders. For example, Trillium, the bull orca at Sea World Orlando is, technically speaking, a serial killer (whale).
