Six years later, clad in one hell of a jumper, she starred in the utterly fantastic Canadian horror, Black Christmas; a film that undoubtedly leads the way in Yuletide horror and has helped to develop the humble ‘slasher’ into a respected genre of its very own.

In 1990, she also played Norma Bates in TV movie prequel, Pyscho IV: The Beginning. Total MILF.

To round off, I feel we should also have an honourable mention to Olivia Hussey’s co-star in Black Christmas, Margot Kidder who you’ll also recognise as Lois Lane. Black Christmas wouldn’t have been half as awesome without you, Barb…
