9. Mandy Lane – All The Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006)
Oh look, a quiet girl turned hot. What a new an exciting narrative. Oh hang on, no – a high school horror movie. How original. Wait. Actually, Mandy Lane is a quiet girl turned hot in a high school horror movie who also, it turns out, is the killer. She’s a great twist on the ‘final girl’ trope, and while you know you’re supposed to hate the villain of slasher movies, you can’t help but love how refreshingly ruthless she is under her all-American good girl looks.
