One Scream Wonders

(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
5. Scream!!!!


  1. I've always been partial to Faye Wray myself. Now she really was a screamer!

  2. Indeed! I should've included her, since she was the first scream queen.

  3. I have that exact same necklace!! HA! Awesome. Yes Elsa was so stunning wasn't she!! I actually incorporated the Bride and Frankenstein (my husbands name is Frank) in our halloween wedding in 2009. Our cake topper was even of them! Love it! Great scream post!

  4. I love it! One of the bat's wings broke off of mine though. :(
    That's so awesome! I definitely want a Halloween wedding too.
    Thank you! :)

  5. Awww, lovely post there. Don't hang your head boo, I'm late too! Lol. Sharing is always caring, no matter how late ;) *puts arm around you* Love you sunshine, you are my favorite bestest sis <3 XOXO
