5 PEOPLE YOU WANT AT YOUR SIDE IN A HORROR CRISIS
ASH WILLIAMS (Evil Dead Trilogy)This guy has gone through hell and back to survive. When he lost his hand it only seemed to give him more power (swapping it for a chainsaw definitely helped...) Basically, you just can't underestimate this guy and his instincts. Still... it's no guarantee that being around him will help YOU survive....because so far the track record of Ash's companion's mortality hasn't been so good. You can learn from him, but he'll be too busy trying to save his own skin, then to save yours.
ELLEN RIPLEY (Alien trilogy)
LAURIE STRODE (Halloween series)
ED & LORRAINE WARREN (The Conjuring)
5 FOES YOU NEVER WANT TO FACE OFF AGAINST!Okay I'll admit, I have yet to see Silence of the Lambs or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (maybe next year..) so even though I'm sure Leatherface and Hannibal Lecter would both make the list here, I'm gonna go for some alternative foes.
CARRIE - If you piss off Carrie....there's realllly not much you can do to escape her wrath. And it will be pretty painful. But the plus side is, you'll have a mighty fine and stylish death. And you'll have plenty of company when you discover that pretty much the entire high school is dead too (so maybe the high school drama and cliques can continue after death?)
WINNERS vs. CARRIE: Ed & Lorraine - Maybe if she IS a witch like her mom thinks, Ed & Lorraine can drive it out of her? Plus Lorraine is just so nice, she could probably talk her off the crazy. LOSERS vs. CARRIE: Laurie - a high school peer? Oh no...she's toast, Tallahassee - he'd be too busy making some wisecrack about the girl being covered in blood that before he knew it, he'd be dead IT'S A DRAW: Ash - he would run the similar risk that Tallahassee did, but he seems like he could take her by surprise a little easier, Ripley - she could use those motherly instincts of hers to calm her down....but if Carrie's in a bad mood, that could easily backfire.
THE THING - What's tricky about the thing...is that it can disguise itself as anyone or anything. There's almost no way of detecting thing from...non-thing. It makes you completely paranoid and unwilling to trust anyone. The thing could easily trick almost all of the heroes, and is absolutely one of the most deadly foes you could come across.
WINNERS vs. THE THING: Ripley she handled this all before in Alien...even if this situation is a bit trickier, I think she's got this, Laurie - like I said...the girl is resourceful. She'd make use of what she has to defeat this creature...and she's learned not to trust everyone already, Tallahassee - he's a bit of a lone wolf as it is and doesn't like trusting just everyone anyway....plus he's an excellent shot, Ash - he's handled all sorts of weird crap, so this wouldn't even phase him. LOSERS vs. THE THING: Ed & Lorraine - they're so trusting of people and just want to help everyone. Plus they don't always know when people aren't themselves.
MICHAEL MYERS (Halloween) - The thing with Michael Myers is that somehow he just never seems to die. Add to that that the guy is completely ruthless and has no regard for human life....and that's a pretty bad combination. You'd think as a simple mortal the guy would be easy to off, but for whatever reason, that just doesn't seem to be the case...
WINNERS vs. MICHAEL MYERS: Laurie (9 times out of 10 she'll win this one..) Tallahassee, Ash, Ripley are all stealthy enough to get the better of the serial killer I think. LOSERS vs. MICHAEL MYERS: Ed & Lorraine They can sense the paranormal and such..but can they tell when someone is just a psychopath?...but I think they all, if given the proper chance COULD beat Michael. But under the wrong circumstances, he could probably catch all of them by surprise too...except Tallahassee.
SAMARA MORGAN (The Ring) Yes she's just a kid...but she is perhaps the most evil of ALL the evil kids. Plus she can kill you (as well as deform your whole body...) in one single stare. Annnnnnnnnnd she never sleeps. Annnnnd she puts images into your mind (and can make you kill yourself pretty much...) And and and.... she's pure EVIL!
WINNERS: Ed & Lorraine this would be the easiest foe for this duo. They'd drive Samara back where she came from, no problem! Laurie - I could see her taking a similar approach as Rachel Keller did in The Ring and that worked out for her, Ash - he basically can sneak up behind Samara and chainsaw her in half. He's dealt with equally weird spirits. LOSERS: Tallahassee is easily fooled by children and I think this time one might get the better of him, Ripley probably could beat Samara...but her mothering instincts could doom her into being tricked.
THE BODY SNATCHERS - Similar to the thing, the body snatchers make it extremely difficult to know who you can trust. Who are the impostors and who are your friends? There's an easier tell in this situation as opposed to the thing (the thing was better at mimicking "normal" behavior...) but on the other hand, the rapidity and widespread of the body snatchers makes it almost impossible to combat. Plus they get you when you sleep! And we all gotta sleep sometime riiiiight?
WINNERS: Ash and Tallahassee I see as having no problems with murdering an entire population that was infected, and Ripley knows how to deal with species from other planets! LOSERS: Ed & Lorraine probably could sense something is up. But can they drive aliens out of bodies? I don't think so. Laurie is good in a one on one match, but when she gets outnumbered...I'm not sure she'd be able to make it, even if she is such a fighter.
Well that's all for now. I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!
