When it comes to blood-curdling shrieks, no one does it quite like a Scream Queen. Whether she’s notching up the YPM (yelps per minute) or intimidating her prey into petrified submission, we take a look at the heroines of horror who’ve got us all spooked out…

Before she was kicking vampire butt as Buffy, SMG took on a hook-armed serial killer – and lost – in I Know What You Did Last Summer.

Megan Fox proved her bite was worse than her bark in black comedy Jennifer’s Body. Scary got sexy. And then went back to being scary again.

Scream queens and prom queens go hand in hand and when Carrie turned a pig’s blood prank into a gym flooded in human blood, she redefined the term ‘instant karma’.
Killer quote: ‘I got invited to the prom…’


If you didn’t try ‘light as a feather, stiff as a board’ with your mates as a kid you probably hadn’t watched The Craft. This teen coven with super powers made school look DANGEROUSLY cool.
Killer quote: ‘We are the weirdos, mister.’
