Scream Queens 2018, Day 30 Part 2
Sigourney Weaver

October 10, 2018 by Avery Faeth

Tonight we meet one of the baddest ladies in the business, Sigourney Weaver. Sigourney set the bar for badassery with her stellar performance of ass-kicking last girl Ellen Ripley in "Alien" (Ridley Scott, 1979) and its followup installments. In "Ghostbusters" (Ivan Reitman, 1984) and its sequels she had a more comical brush with the supernatural as Dana Barrett, a symphony musician possessed by demons. She tried her hand as the Evil Queen, here known as Claudia Hoffman, in the overlooked nightmare fairytale "Snow White: A Tale of Terror" (Michael Cohn, 1997). Although it received mixed reviews she lent her star power as Alice Hunt in "The Village" (M. Night Shyamalan, 2004). In the fabulous horror send-up "The Cabin in the Woods" (Drew Goddard, 2012) she plays the enigmatic Director.
