Hopefully you’ve read Blast’s Anatomy of a Scream Queen piece to bring out the Halloween joy in everyone.
Here are our five greatest Hollywood screamers of all time:
5. Scout Taylor-Compton
She may be new to the scene, but if Rob Zombie likes her, that’s saying something. Taylor-Compton has appeared in both of Zombie’s “Halloween” remakes.
4. Asia Argento
You probably know her from “Land of the Dead,” but Asia Argento has been acting since she was nine years old.
3. Janet Leigh
The shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” is one of the most iconic scenes in film historyâ€”let alone horror film history, and Leigh’s scream is the reason.
2. Neve Campbell
Perhaps a controversial choice over Janet Leigh, but as the star of the “Scream” movies, Neve helped make horror popular again and solidified her place in the Scream Queen hall of fame.
1. Jamie Lee Curtis
It’s hard to argue against Jamie Lee. You can’t talk about Scream Queens without talking about her. Before she was selling digestive yogurt, she was screaming her way through “Halloween,” “Halloween II,” and “Prom Night.”
Jamie Leigh Curtis? Yes
Janet Leigh – Yes
Asia Argento – Yes again
Those other two, are as much a scream queen as I am a can of soda
