Forget Little Mermaid. In this Polish horror musical, Golden and Silver are your average tail-flipping, song-singing, man-eating sea sirens.


9. Santanico Pandemonium (From Dusk Till Dawn — 1996)

At first blush, Santanico might seem like your typical burlesque dancer. But once she shows her true face, people are suddenly a lot less interested in getting a lap dance.

10. The Blackfoot High School cheerleaders (All Cheerleaders Die — 2013)

After a nasty fight with the football team, a group of high school cheerleaders end up dead. The next morning, the girls walk back into school very much alive, thanks to the powers of a witch, and have a new craving for human flesh.

As a medical student, Mary Mason is drawn into the underground world of black market surgery and body modification — namely because, well, she's broke.

Trapped inside doll bodies, Tiffany and her boyfriend Chucky engage in some super dark Bonnie & Clyde escapades, until things take a turn and Tiffany realizes she's over it.
