The first time I heard the expression “Scream queen” was in the documentary about horror films history, 100 Years of Horror, hosted by Christopher Lee, which, by the way, I highly recommend. But what is a scream queen? It is an actress who has become associated with horror films, either through an appearance in a notable entry in the genre, as a frequent victim, or through constant appearances as the female protagonist. I also like to define them as “gorgeous women that are usually screaming in the films”.
Now that you what it is, take a look at the fabulous Universal Scream Queens. It has a great list of actresses with many pictures and posters. Other option is search the actresses by film “categories”: Dracula movies, Frankenteins series, The Mummy series, Werewolves, Phantoms, Ghouls & Ghosts, Mysteries and Mayhem, Mad Doctors, Sci-fi and others.
