WHO IS THE SCREAM QUEEN?
Tough one eh?
A scream queen 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.
We'll go by the set definition quoted above.
So who is she?
Not sure if we want to do this by quantity of films or quality?
I'm guesng we'll go with quantity of Horror Films starred in rather because of the actresses love for the genre or because they couldn't get another gig (type-casted).
Better yet to Narrow this down . . . What Female Actress has starred in the MOST horror movies (clascs - modern)?
I'm going to start with naming a few of the obvious to get them out of the way and make you work a little for this one.
