I just read the very sad news that Hammer Films icon Ingrid Pitt died yesterday at the age of 73.

 

If your unfamiliar with Pitt’s career (and I was until a few years ago), you should check out Countess Dracula and Vampire Lovers (both available now on Netflix Watch Instantly) to see what all the hubbub’s about.

And so, as my own kind of clumsy tribute to the lady and her contribution to the world of horror cinema, I present our question of the week:

Who’s the most important female character in the history of horror?
