Door #4 opens


It’s the Ghost of Christmas Present – a.k.a. Carol Kane, one of the most distinctive (and funny) actresses around. I’ve sung her praises before, and she’s taken on some extremely kooky horror roles in the past in such films as Pandemonium, Office Killer, When a Stranger Calls, When a Stranger Calls Back, Transylvania 6-5000 and Don’t Ring the Doorbell. But none beat her hilariously disturbing performance as a psychotic Christmas fairy in this – probably my favourite holiday movie – Scrooged. Altogether now: “Look, Frank! It’s a toaster!

I think for me, it's all about Pandemonium. What an awesome movie.

She's a great pick for your list. She's so totally underrated as an actress - horror, comedy or otherwise. And she's simply stunning to look at.
