As February draws to a close, so does the official Women in Horror Month. Started a few years back, the month of February has been dubbed a special time of year, where horror fans are encouraged reflect on final girls, vixens and villains, and appreciate the evolution of females in the genre. Knowing that, what better time to pay tribute to the unsung heroes of the horror world? Unfortunately, some girls are overlooked either because they aren't the main character, or they just aren't in a movie that became as popular as its predecessors. In my opinion, everyone who helps save lives is warranted some reward. Therefore, I've decided to provide a list of some of my favorite females to spread the word about some contenders that deserve a little more recognition. Without further ado, here are the ten most overlooked horror heroines!

Any good horror movie villain needs a mask. Sarah counts down 20 of the most frightening face-hiders in the movies...
Ever since Michael Myers went on a killing spree in his Halloween costume, masks have been a staple of slasher movies.
Sometimes they serve to hide the killer’s identity, while other times they conceal a disfigured face, and other times, well, probably the production team just thought it’d look cool. Usually, the idea is that it’s what lurks underneath the mask that’s scary, but a good horror movie mask is frightening in its own right.
Here, then, are 20 of the scariest masks ever to turn up in a horror movie:

As worn by: Jigsaw’s various acolytes in the Saw franchise
There’s so much going on in the Saw movies that this mask is far from the »
There are myriad reasons why some horror films don’t make a connection with moviegoers and in turn fail to live up to expectations set by the studios that financed them. Sometimes it’s because a movie simply isn’t good, but often a film’s lack of box office success can be attributed to circumstances beyond the filmmakers’ control: factors like lack of appropriate promotion, bad marketing, poorly-timed release dates and unduly harsh critical reception can work against an otherwise good film's success. There are countless well-made movies that do not succeed for one reason or another, and we think it’s a damn shame that the majority of movie fans wind up missing out on quality films.
