In honor of Women in Horror Recognition Month,
(Yes, I'm late, as usual. *Hangs head*)
I present two of the most influential scream queens.
(Despite them starring in only one major horror film.)
Elsa Lanchester as the bride in Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
As my blogger buddy Bleaux Leaux said, given her very limited screen time,
a case could be made that the Bride of Frankenstein left the most indelible impression.
So true. Her image/likeness still graces a plethora of products.
Including my bootiful new bride necklace!
Made by C.A.B. Fayre
(Which I won in a giveaway,
along with the latest issue of Creepy Queen Magazine. :)
Janet Leigh as Marion Crane in Psycho (1960)
Two words: Shower scene.
Still making us uneasy while showering in motels,
and being immortalized, in plastic!
Psycho Doll by Madame Alexander
(Sadly it's no longer for sale on her site.
I'm hoping it'll turn up on eBay soon!)
Janet also gave the world my favorite scream queen, Jamie Lee Curtis.
(Who she appeared with in The Fog (1980) and Halloween H20 (1998))
"Women are born with horror in their very bloodstream.
It is a biological thing."
- Bela Lugosi
Fellow females, want to be Scream Queen for a Day?
Here's all you have to do:
1. Print and cut out this crown made by Halloween Blues
2. Punch two holes at the end of it
3. Tie it together with string
4. Place it on your head
