Welcome to Humor Nation. One particular thing which separates horror movie from any other movie genre is how much it loves the tropes. This is very true especially for the female characters especially the mothers in horror movies. A mother plays a crucial role whether it’s on a reel or in real. Now the mothers in horror movies fall into two categories, the most famous and prevalent are the evil one who through their evil abusive parenting creates the evil villain such as how we have seen in Psycho, Friday the 13th, and Carrie.
The one is the silent screaming victim who is not aware of what is going on and ends up suffering intensely while being incapable of protecting or saving her own self. Such as we have seen in The Exorcist, The Omen, and The Shining. Remember Wendy Torrance’s character in The Shining where she was oblivious to the situation happening around her and her inability to protect her child or herself.
Pamela Voorhees is one of the most iconic horror movie characters of all time. She appeared first in the original Friday the 13th film where was a vengeful mother and was known as Mrs. Voorhees.
