Now THAT'S distressing a damsel, but of course you won't see anything like this in a mainstream film. Image source: Fucking Dungeon.
The website known as The Complex has compiled its list of the 15 hottest damsel in distress movies. I don't know that I agree with them: where is "Slavegirls From Beyond Infinity" and "Barbarian Queen" and "Deathstalker"? But what the hell, it's a fun idea, a fun list, check it out and see if you agree or disagree with what they have to say.
Parenthetically, it's interesting to see a mainstream site unapologetically listing hot damsel in distress movies. Most of the time when the term "damsel in distress" is used there are so many apologies, qualifiers, notes, explanations and so forth that you wonder where they even got the nerve to use the term. We get it, it's not the 1950s any more. Just setting it out there is so much easier and less tiresome to read.
