    There's too many great choices here! It was a toss-up between Linda Blair and Linnea Quigley for me. Linda won but man do I love me some '80's Linnea...

    When I first looked at this poll I didn't really think of actresses not listed.Lynn Lowry is definitely my favorite.Shivers,Crazies,and I Drink Your Blood are all great movies.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Cronenberg was probably pissing-his-pants-excited to be working with the star of I DRINK YOUR BLOOD and THE CRAZIES (given the similar themes of his early films like SHIVERS and RABID?)

    Lynn is also very fan friendly.She has DVD's of all her movies on hand and sells them for $25 shipping in.This includes autograph.I have a copy of the Image release of Shivers on the way from her.

    No kidding. That DVD has been OOP for ages. I saw an interview with her recently. She's just as beautiful as ever and really comes across as a wonderful lady.

    I've got to give a shout out to the lovely Isabelle Adjani. While not a horror star per se, she was in Possession and Nosferatu (1979).

    Fay Wray would be my favorite "Scream Queen" although "horror actress" broadens that up. So many great choices in that list as well as under Other. Still I had to go with Fay. Her screams from King Kong were stock screams for decades. But mostly my vote is for her being in Doctor X. Plus she's referenced twice in Rocky Horror.

    I only caught Psycho II in that list. (By the way, did anyone think the doll she gave to Chucky in Bride was made to intentionally look like her / her hairstyle?)

    After making my list, it finally dawned on me that I DO have a favorite horror actress and I'm ecstatic that she hasn't made anyone else's list:

    Lynn Lowry and I have been exchanging e-mails for about a decade now,sort of a "pen pal".She's a sweetheart and a great actress.Her last scene in THE CRAZIES always got me,the simplicity of it.She's worked with a great "who's who" of talent too,Romero,Cronenberg,Jonathan Demme,Paul Schrader as well as such colorful characters as Lloyd Kaufman and Radley Metzger.She really should write a book !

    It's a shame that Edwig Fenech is not there. She got my vote.

    I like the honesty in this statement.
