She first came into the horrorsphere as Ava Strauss in 2008’s The Attic, but this month all eyes are her as she tackles the role of Heather in the brand new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film that came out at the beginning of January. Yes, ladies and gents, our first Hothouse Hottie of 2013 is Alexandra Daddario!
The 26-year-old starlet hailing from New York has all the makings of a scream queen. Not only did she put on a fearsome performance in Texas Chainsaw 3, but she also starred in a great little horror flick back in 2010, Bereavement; the prequel to Malevolence.
In Bereavement we are reacquainted with Martin Bristol (the villain from the aforementioned film). It is revealed that as a child discovers he is incapable of feeling pain and is then abducted by local mad man Sutter who raises him in an abandoned slaughterhouse and teaches him how to murder women. Fast forward 5 years, 17-year-old Allison (Daddario) is jogging past the slaughterhouse and sees Martin…and then the fun really begins. Ok, so it’s not great, but you only have to look at the DVD cover to see why we like it so much…
Oh and check out this video…
What’s more if that even though she’s a self-confessed wuss when it comes to watching horror films, she knows exactly what the horror audience want and what the slasher genre demands, and that’s “as little clothing as possible!” Spot on, Alexandra, spot on.
Beautiful with eyes like a wolf and a body to kill for, we at the Hothouse are more than pleased to see this horror hottie battles her way to the top for the title of January’s Hothouse Hottie.
