Make no mistake about it -- the '90s are back. Myriad people are sporting flannel and backwards baseball hats, Furbys are the "new" hot toys, and even Nirvana seems to have gained popularity again recently. Since one of the most gnarly decades is rearing its grungy head again, how else should one reminisce about the good 'ol days than to list of the baddest Bettys of the 1990s? Read on, and count down the boss femme fatales of the '90s.
We’ve already got Norman Bates and Hannibal Lecter. What other horror films could survive or even thrive with the transition to the small screen? Here are our picks for five horror movie franchises that could make for engaging, exciting weekly TV series.
