The Six Best Horror Movie Final Girls


4. Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) – HELLRAISER I, HELLRAISER II, HELLRAISER III, HELLRAISER VI

My main reason for liking Kirsty is that she actually succeeds and survives by manipulating her adversary (Pinhead) throughout her encounters with him to the point of eventually tricking him into doing her dirty work for her. Long story short, by the time of her last Appearance in the HELLRAISER films Kirsty is married to a philandering lout who plots to kill her but she not only figures out his scheme, she then uses the Cenobites to exact revenge for her and still is able to escape with her life. She’s the Final Girl taken to the logical conclusion that after fighting monsters and killers for so long it is sometimes very easy to become just as cold-blooded and ruthless.
