Nancy. She proactively goes after Freddy instead of waiting for him to come to her, and wins.

The current (third) incarnation of Laurie Strode is a close second.

Someone is running up the JLC votes. Thread closed.

How are the OP's two choices the only ones?

JLC in the current poll, but there are literally dozens of other contenders.

And yes, I would probably vote for Heather Langenkamp although JLC kicked some serious ass in the original Halloween.

I would argue against Sigourney Weaver's Ripley being seen as a scream queen/final girl. She was so much more than that from the first scene.

I can't believe all the Laurie Strode votes after the last trilogy (especially the last movie).

There should have been more choices in the poll tbh.

Sydney Prescott is such a Hollywood name.

Nancy Thompson (A Nightmare on Elm Street) would have been a good inclusion.

Laurie. I'm definitely a horror fan but I've never been able to get into the Scream for some reason. I think it's the whole "meta" thing. It just comes across as "look how much smarter we are than THOSE kinds of movies." And now it has 6 movies and a TV show with 3 seasons. And there is no doubt in anyone's mind there will be a Scream 7 with all the money it's making. I find it ironic they ended up making Scream a cash cow franchise Hollywood is milking to death like all the other slasher franchises they mocked and thought they were so much better than.

Stretch from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. I loved her sassy attitude.
