I'm am tempted to say Jamie Lee Curtis....
But then there is Linnea Quigley..... :confused:
Oh but mine has to be Linda Blair!

Performance and appeal are key factors in this, so I have to say Jamie Lee Curtis, without a doubt. No other scream queen can touch her.

There wil always be a place in my heart for Linnea Quigley, but my favorite current scream queen is Alan Rowe Kelly.

I love Jamie Lee Curtis, but Amy Steel did a pretty spectacular job in Friday the 13th: Part 2, and though she may not be the most accomplished actress, I also have a soft spot for Dana Kimmell (Sweet 16, Friday the 13th: Part 3). CÚcile de France may only have one horror title to her credit (Haute Tension), but what a powerful performance!

Well i too love Jamie Lee and Linnea, but I think Sarah Michelle Gellar was great in "I Know what you did..."

I'm coming up with almost blank here. But, because she worked with 3 of the American Masters of Horror (Romero, Craven, and Carpenter) - I'm going with Adrienne Barbeau.
But I also really love Linnea.

Jaime Lee Curtis, Leslie Donaldson, Linnea Quigley, Margot Kidder, and Olivia Hussey.

Linnea Quigley.... ;)
but Jamie Lee Curtis hand down was the best.

Is there a very narrow definition of scream queen? Like say from a certain period and country of origin?
01-11-2009, 05:25 PM
I'd vote for Linnea too.
01-11-2009, 05:28 PM
Linnea Quigley and Lesleh Donaldson.

Linnea Quigley. Many other have came and gone with better looks and better acting, but she was there to shape me into the horror fan I am today. Jamie Lee is close runner-up, and with a bit more gratuiyos nudity would've won.

I would pick Linnea Quigley but I also enjoy Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer. I met Linnea at a Fangoria weekend of horrors and she signed this poster.

Does Margot Kidder count? I think her performance and character in Black Christmas was probably my favorite female in a horror flick. The fact that Bob Clark wrote all her character's stuff is even more impressive, considering.

All time favorite is Jamie Lee Curtis. I also really like Amy Steele and Barbara Crampton. My favorite among current actresses is Tiffany Shepis.
Linnea is mine too. Though, Amy Steele is great.

Linnea Quigley, hand's down. Though not as notable (and, really, not *really* a scream queen), I'd say that Monique Gabrielle is a close 2nd

1. Jamie Lee Curtis
2. Nancy Loomis
3. Amy Steel
4. Brooke Adams

I also enjoy Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer.
They're on my top 5 list as well. I also think Bauer stole the show in Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers from Linnea. Brinke was especially good in Transylvania Twist and as Taffy in Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama.
01-11-2009, 08:42 PM
Definitely Jamie Lee.
01-11-2009, 08:58 PM

I simply can't pick only one, so I'll pick a top 3:
01-11-2009, 11:24 PM
01-11-2009, 11:34 PM
Jamie Lee Curtis.
01-12-2009, 05:13 PM
I have no favorite ONE, but ones I enjoy:
01-13-2009, 08:19 AM
1. Jamie Lee Curtis
2. Linnea Quigley
3. PJ Soles
4. Adrienne King
5. Lar Park Lincoln (What can I say? I have a soft spot for Part VII!)

My God! How could I have forgotten my dear Caroline? :(

Linnea Quigley just rules, hard to match.
