- " Into every generation a Slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number." So goes, more or less, the prophecy of Slayer. But the prophecy said nothing about said heroine being blonde, relatively slight of build and possessing quick wit... and a fashion fetish.
When Joss Whedon introduced the character of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" to American TV audiences, few people could have predicted how deeply Buffy Summers would resonate with her fans -- even now, after nearly a decade of being off the air. The name alone still keeps a significant number of people from watching it. Their loss.
What makes her an extraordinary character is the way Whedon and his team of writers blended heartbreaking pathos with a unique wit and word-play into every step of her adventures. And after Buffy, the characterization of the helpless girl in horror movies began to ring increasingly false. Yes, slasher flicks will always have young women recklessly stumbling into dark basements. But now we know that some of them can pack a serious punch. ”
