YMMV / DC Showcase: Jonah Hex

Go To

  • Alas, Poor Villain: Even though she did everything to deserve her fate, Madame Lorraine being left to die in an abandoned mineshaft surrounded by the bodies of her victims is terrifying enough to draw pity from some viewers. It doesn't help that the final shots of the film show Lorraine looking on in horror at the decaying carcasses of her victims while the light of the lantern fades.
  • Complete Monster: Madame Lorraine is a seductress who makes a practice of enticing rich men and luring them into her clutches. Once she has them, Lorraine coldly shoots them dead, takes their money, and has her flunkies dump their bodies in a mine shaft. Lorraine comes into conflict with Jonah Hex after she kills one of his bounties and attempts to repeat the process on him. Once Hex forces Lorraine to show him where his bounty's body is, Lorraine shows him into the mine shaft, where the decaying bodies of all the men (at least fifteen victims) Lorraine has killed are seen.

  • Evil Is Sexy: Hoo boy, Madame Lorraine.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The ending. After collecting his bounty, Hex leaves Lorraine to rot away and die all alone in the dark pit where she dumped her victims.
  • What an Idiot!: Lorraine tries to kill Hex once again, and is surprised at the fact he isn't going to save her.
