Then and now: Scream Queen edition!

If there is one thing today's horror is definitely lacking it's the scream queen.  Sure, we've got plenty of oversexed females making appearances in horror movies now-a-days, but it's nothing like it used to be, the gals of yesteryear had staying power dammit!  They bared their souls and occasionally a little more to please us blood thirsty fans!  Okay, maybe I'm being way too dramatic.

Below is a list of some of the most renowned scream queens with pictures of what they looked like in their heyday along with how they look now.  Enjoy!

First up is my personal favorite, Linnea Quigley.  You can't call yourself a horror fan if you're not familar with that name as she was literally everywhere in the 80's.



You can't have a list without the following actress as she pretty much was one of (if not the) first scream queen(s)...Jamie Lee Curtis.


Another familiar face from our youth is The Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira AKA Cassandra Peterson.


She melted our hearts in Savage Vengeance and I Spit on Your Grave, Camille Keaton.


No list is complete without Linda Blair!  She went from a foul mouthed possessed child in the 70's to a vengeance taking scantily-clad ass kicker in the 80's.


Next up is the highly underrated Marilyn Burns, she was practically tortured in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and went on to star in a slew of other genre films.


Barbara Crampton was a regular in the Stuart Gordon films of the 80's.


Adrienne Barbeau


Brinke Stevens


Lastly, the wonderful Lynn Lowry
