I typically do not like to play the term “Butterface,” which is defined by the Urban Dictionary as a :A girl who is hot, except for her (but her, butter) face.” Even if you include men (technically, a butthisface, or you can use the gender neutral buttaface), it’s sexist, objectifying, and it plays into the insecurity many men and women already have about their physical qualities. It’s cruel, and judge-y, and there’s no place for it.
But, tomorrow is Halloween, so I thought I could make a one-time exception. I feel guilty about it, of course, but in some cases, you have to call it like you see it. With that in mind (and with my apologies), here are eight of the more egregious examples of buttafaces in movies and television, in no particular order.
Santinico Pandeomonium, From Dusk til Dawn
Jennifer, Jennifer’s Body
Amy, Fright Night
Dead Julie, Return of the Living Dead III
Laurie, Trick ‘r Treat
The Minotaur, American Horror Story Coven
