#WIHMX Day 17 – Xenomorph

Today I’m choosing the queen alien from Aliens and Alien 3: a perfect follow on from yesterday’s choice.

I’ve thought long and hard and this is one of the best female ‘monsters’ in horror that I can think of. And the fact she was pitched against Ellen Ripley makes for an an epic combination.

So hooray to the Alien movies for giving us not only a kickass female protagonist in Ellen Ripley (who’s a great role model for any girl), but also a terrifying female antagonist.
