Looking good, might have had Ellen Ripley higher up in my list and it's good to see Patrica Tallman getting a thumbs up for the 1990's Night of the Living Dead. Might have found a place for Shauna from The Descent, but it gives a god idea of the strength of female characters in films.

Surprised Sidney Prescott didn't make the cut (no pun intended).
