Updated on May 31, 2017

Carrie White

"It has nothing to do with Satan, Mama. It's me." - Carrie White

High school can be rough on anyone, but for young Carrie White, it literally turned out to be murder. Mass murder, in fact. Her story has been told more than once, but the basic facts remain the same. Bullied at school, abused at home and jacked up with psychic powers no one had foreseen, Carrie makes a stand for those who have had to endure ridicule, torment and agony at the hands of others. So what if a few good guys got burned along the way? So long as the bad guys all got it in the end!

Morticia Addams

"Last night you were unhinged. You were like some desperate, howling demon. You frightened me. Do it again!" - Morticia Addams

Morticia Addams is perhaps the most wickedly humorous TV mom of all time. Definitely not your average homemaker, Morticia was always there for her family and their macabre needs. Always dressed in a slinky black evening gown, this lady was a real head turner -- usually all the way around! Goth before being goth was trendy, Morticia was not only a horrific homemaker, but quite the gardener as well with a black thumb to be envied by all. Her long stem roses were always a beauty to behold once she clipped off those dreadful blooms that were always such an annoyance! Gomez sure was a lucky fellow!

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

"There's nothing wrong with G-rated movies, as long as there's lots of sex and violence." - Elvira

Undoubtedly the Hostess with the Mostest, Elvira would often outshine the stars of the cheesy horror flicks she presented on KHJ's Movie Macabre show. The horror hostess made her debut in 1981 and went on to star in a couple of B-movies of her own as well as numerous fantasies in the developing minds of many a young boy. In her tight black Gothic gown with her jet black beehive hairdo, Elvira was as striking as she was titillating. You can bet there were very few "unpleasant dreams" featuring the Mistress of the Dark!

Baby Firefly

"Whatever you need to do, you do it. There is no wrong. If someone needs to be killed, you kill them. That's the way." - Baby Firefly
"These are all my dolls. I used to like to chop their heads off and their arms and stick 'em up on the wall." - Baby Firefly

If you dig chicks with guns, then Baby Firefly is the girl for you. But be careful... this one can be quite the tease! And what you get in the end may be a bit more than you bargained for, her murderous inclinations being what they are. But oh what a beautiful way to go!

Vera-Ellen "Baby Firefly" Wilson was born September 12, 1948 to Eve Wilson (better known as Mother Firefly) and Johnny Lee Johns (more commonly called Captain Spaulding). She was raised in Ruggsville County, living a life filled with mayhem and murder. Unfortunately, due primarily to the intolerance and treachery of Sheriff John Wydell who had no understanding or compassion for the Firefly's unorthodox way of life, Baby was taken from us May 21, 1978. Her life was celebrated in the Rob Zombie films House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

"I can't believe I'm in a graveyard with a strange man hunting for vampires on a school night. " - Buffy Summers

If you are out on a spooky Halloween night, there is no lady better to have by your side than Buffy Summers. Not only is she gorgeous, but she can handle any creatures of the night who might come along. Sure, technically she is a vampire slayer, but do you really think zombies, werewolves, ghouls or young kids armed with a dozen rotten eggs would be any match for her amazing powers?

Angelique Bouchard

"Look into my eyes. Deep into my eyes. You have no will of your own. You cannot resist me..." - Angelique Bouchard

From the world of Dark Shadows, Angelique Bouchard brought a refreshing sophistication often missing from the world of evil ladies. She had style. She had grace. She had magical skills that could charm you or kill you. And she was pretty ruthless. She wanted things her way and there was never any compromise. Of course, if you resisted, she always had the power to change your mind. Angelique was in love with Barnabas Collins but the silly vampire had this thing for Josette DuPres. What a silly, silly boy!

Vampirella

Talisa Soto as Vampirella in 1996
Talisa Soto as Vampirella in 1996
"Your blood will tell us all we need." - Vampirella

Vampirella is from Drakulon which may be another planet or a part of Hell, depending on who you ask. Either way, Vampirella was sent to us to slay evil vampires. She has many vampire powers herself including a hypnotizing stare, superhuman strength and the ability to suck blood. But she does not suffer most of the usual vampire weaknesses such as an intolerance of sunlight or an aversion to religious items such as crosses or holy water. She can suck you all day long without turning you into a vampire and enjoys garlic toast with her pasta. All in all, exactly the kind of girl you would be proud to take home to meet your mother.


Samantha Stevens

"I'm not a bad witch! I'm a good witch!" - Samantha Stevens
Samantha with her mom, Endora.
Samantha with her mom, Endora.

Without a doubt, Samantha Stevens was the cutest witch to ever twitch her nose at a warlock. Or at a human for that matter. Hubby Darren certainly fell under her bewitching spell as did millions of television viewers. And the magic has never stopped with Samantha first returning to us in reruns via Nick at Night and now coming to us in glorious digital perfection on DVD.

And if you don't think Sam was one of a kind, consider this... when they made the Bewitched movie, all the other witches and warlocks were there -- Endora, Uncle Arthur, Aunt Clara... Heck! Even Abner and Gladys Kravitz were there. But there was no Samantha. Some magic just cannot be duplicated.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch (and Her Aunts)

Melissa Joan Hart as Sabrina in the late 1990s/early 2000s

"What's the matter? I have to be a witch, I have to be a mortal, I have to be a teenager and I have to be a girl all at the same time. That's what's the matter." - Sabrina

When the television version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch first aired, the star playing Sabrina was already out of her teens, but that didn't stop the show from providing us with the hottest triumvirate in witchy wickedness ever. We got to enjoy Sabrina making her way through high school among us mere mortals while all around her magic abounded. Of course, the no-longer-not-quite-a-teen star and her super sexy aunts were not really wicked. Not even naughty, in fact. The show was generally as G-rated as the Archie comic on which it was based. But there was always our dreams... always our dreams!

Chainsaw Sally

"Give me the knife or I swear I'll rip out your tongue by the roots and feed it to the dog" - Chainsaw Sally

Chainsaw Sally spends her days as a mild mannered librarian but when the sun goes down, the glasses come off, the hair comes down, and this little lady is in the the mood for a bloody good time. Chainsaw Sally is the kind of girl that cuts to the chase -- right through flesh, bone, cartilage... whatever gets in the way. Her motto... "Twice the blood... half the clothes!" It is hard to argue with a philosophy like that, but you better get your books back on time because the fine may just be your life!

Lily Munster

"Oh, Marilyn! The circles under your eyes... How lovely you look today." - Lily Munster

Like Morticia Addams, Lily Munster is another well-known TV mom with a spooky disposition. With a husband like the gentle-though-somewhat-clumsy giant Herman Munster, Lily had her work cut out for her. Adding Grandpa Munster into the mix was certainly volatile with his occasionally explosive experiments, but with the help of her son Eddie and her niece Marilyn, she somehow managed to keep things from getting too out of hand week after week.

Bride of Frankenstein

"Hisssssssss!" - The Bride of Frankenstein

If two beings were ever made for one another, it has to be the the Frankenstein Monster and his lovely bride. Of course, she did not exactly see it that way and her rejection ultimately led to the Monster's demise. Perhaps if he had polished his neck bolts and chose spiffier haircut, things might have turned out differently. But a fine lady like the Bride if Frankenstein is bound to have pretty high standards when it comes to choosing a mate.

Glinda the Good Witch

If you think witches are all evil and ugly, you need look no further than Glinda the Good Witch to prove yourself wrong. Like some of the other ladies on my list, Glinda has been portrayed by many actresses over the years. But one thing that has always been constant is her beauty, grace and goodness. Okay, well, maybe that is three things, but that just proves my point. When it comes to witchy women, Glinda just might be the best of them all!

Okay, okay... I know this makes fourteen on my list of thirteen. And I admit I do not really find the Wicked Witch of the West attractive. But I was afraid if I did not include her she might get me. And my little dog, too.

"Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?" - The Wicked Witch of the West

Ooh-hoo! Witchy Woman!

      Greetings my little Darklings.

      One spooky lady to be very afraid of. And it's Lillith whose power over men is formidible. No sweet dreams if under the spell of Lillith.

      Greetings my little Darklings.

      I wonder if Samantha and Darren's daughter Tabitha has inherited her mother's powers. I'd be very wary of Endora too !

      I wouldn't classify the whole 13 as 'killer babes', certainly a few though.

      For example Samantha comes across as a homely wife, mother and lady in a conventional environment albeit with control over her husband. It would be Endora i'd find to be a very dangerous woman.

      GREETINGS DARKLINGS.

      Without a shadow of doubt, i'd regard Elvira as the most formidable of the spooky babes. Vampirella a close second. That does not necessarily exclude all those listed as it would be foolhardy to underestimate their supernatural power.

      Sweet dreams.

      Merrie we meet.

      Firstly Samantha. The underlying theme here is about the control of a male by the superior gender. He has no choice but to submit to her commands. Co-inciding with the Women's Liberation movement then in full swing, similarly but not exactly like the t.v. series 'I dream of Genie'.

      Endora. She strikes me as the perfect 'wyche'. In my wild eratic phantasies i imagine being her witch's familiar by day and by night, turned to stone as guardian to her coven.

      Another well done Hub -- strangely without comment. I don't know why I use the term "strangely" because I've written well over 100 Hubs myself and no one has bothered to leave any comments -- even those pieces that statistically have been visited by many. My two cents on this piece is -- job well done and deserving of commentary.

      I was going to add you to my list but discovered I already had you on there from something else.

      If you are like me, you write just for the pleasure of writing and don't give a damn about an audience. For what it's worth, occasionally you will find someone who recognizes your talent/ability and appreciates it. I guess even if they say nothing, they may walk away feeling a sense of enlightenment/amusement/whatever.
