Last year we compiled a list of horror films with lesbian or bisexual characters. This year, we thought we'd highlight out actresses who have appeared in some Halloween-worthy watching. From the classic to the contemporary, we've been in some of the best (and worst) scary movies.
Here are 11 movies you can find for your viewing (dis)pleasure this holiday.
The actress played a teen named Amy Peterson in the 1985 original. She gets turned into a vampire, but is able to turn back into herself after the cure is discovered. Amanda came out eight years later — as a lesbian, not a vampire.
Portia played a bitchy sorority sister in the 1997 sequel to the very successful Scream. She doesn't last too long, but she steals the scenes she's in with some sassy insults.

The original 2007 movie was Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.

In its opening scene, Canadian dramedy Good Dog directly references Curb Your Enthusiasm. Its lead character, neurotic TV producer George (Ken Finkleman), is planning an unnecessary trip to Los Angeles to get Larry David’s blessing to use the title “Embrace Your Enthusiasm” for a planned fly-on-the-wall series about his life. It feels like a move intended to undercut criticism that Good Dog‘s a “Canadian Curb“, but one that doesn’t work. If anything, it just draws additionally attention to the fact this is a poor man’s version of the Emmy-winning Curb, and possible the worst comedy pilot I’ve seen in years.
It doesn’t help that I had no idea who Ken Finkleman was, and therefore no opinion of him to subvert. He’s an award-winning writer-producer-actor, who created and starred in a hit Canadian TV series called The Newsroom in the ’90s, amongst other things, »

Skyline (Blu-Ray)Universal Home ENTERTAINMENT2010/Rated PG-13/Running Time 94 minsList Price: $39.98 – Now AvailableDid anyone really see Avp-R aka Alien vs. Predator: Requiem? I did, in the theaters actually and while I can't say it ranks high up there with any of the films from either monster film franchise, the sequel turned out to be better than I expected. And I wasn't expecting much. Though the film had a ridiculous plot, some terrible performances by a cast being chased by guys in rubber suits and cinematography so bad you couldn't see crap, I'm still amazed that I found Avp-R somewhat enjoyable. Stupid, but stupid fun. Maybe it was because it had some heavy Alien on Predator action or should I say Aliens vs. Predator, since it involved one lone hunter essentially playing a badass against an army of those xenomorphs with acid for bloodAVP-r was a box-office failure, »
CSI: Las Vegas is still the most watched TV programme in the world and it’s no wonder when you look at the awesome storylines they keep churning out. It’s amazing to think that it’s been going for such a long time but personally I still find it fresh and compelling viewing.
Season 10 is no different. It’s the first season where Gil Grissom (William Petersen) doesn’t appear but to my surprise however, his now wife, Sara Suidle (Jorja Fox) is back for some more crime fighting action while Grissom apparently attends various bug conferences around the world. She comes into replace Riley Adams (Lauren Lee Smith) who left at the end of the last season. Laurence Fishburne is back as Dr. Raymond Langston alongside those we’ve come accustomed to, Marg Helgenberger, Paul Guilfoyle, George Eads, Eric Szmanda and Robert David Hall as Dr. Al Robbins. »
