1. Lydia Deetz (Beetlejuice)
Winona Ryder was seventeen years old when she played teen suicidal goth Lydia Deetz, the daughter of the Deetzes who helps the Maitlands try to scare off her parents. Her clothes are full-on goth and her makeup look — being in a Tim Burton film — is incredibly pale with loads of eyeliner.

2. Kim Boggs (Edward Scissorhands)
Winona Ryder dons a blonde look here as she plays the caring and loving Kim Boggs who falls for the overly freakish Edward who has very sharp scissor blades for his hands after not being able to be finished by the scientist who had made him due to his untimely death.
3. Veronica Sawyer (Heathers)
Heathers isn’t really a horror film, but it’s spooky, because the psychotic nature of the characters can actually happen in real life.
In this movie, Winona Ryder plays Veronica Sawyer, a girl who has befriended the popular “Heathers” clique at school to survive the dirty society of high school. She eventually gets fed up with her fake friends though and ends up going with J.D., a new student of her school who ends up being incredibly psychotic, killing the students who bully Veronica and using Veronica as an accomplice without telling her firsthand.
