Psycho women from hell!

Over at Alex on Film I’ve been watching a bunch of movies about crazy ladies. Dangerous crazy ladies. Most of them fell into one of two categories: the brief-lived hagsploitation genre beginning with What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? and the sexual predator, probably most famously represented in Fatal Attraction. There are, however, outliers, and of course no two psychos are perfectly alike.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)
Hush . . . Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964)
Pretty Poison (1968)
What’s the Matter With Helen? (1971)
Play Misty for Me (1971)
Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (1972)
Fatal Attraction (1987)
Misery (1990)
Single White Female (1992)
Disclosure (1994)
To Die For (1995)
Gone Girl (2014)
