Any feedback is welcome, especially with regards to anyone who you really think warrants inclusion.
Sep 15th, 2012 at 20:29 GMT
Was absolutely convinced that Heather Donahue was Saoirse Ronan. Good game!
Sep 16th, 2012 at 00:53 GMT
Well, if you wanted to kick it really old school, you could include Helen Chandler, who played Mina in the 1931 version of Dracula. Anyway, an excellent quiz, and I really liked the colour scheme for the answer grid!

Love is Jennifer's middle name. Not the first part of her last name.
Sep 23rd, 2012 at 18:28 GMT
I admit I was surprised not to see Heather O'Rourke on here (though since I only just came up with her name, maybe it's just as well for me).
Sep 24th, 2012 at 17:50 GMT
Tippi Hedren is misspelled.
Oct 2nd, 2012 at 05:56 GMT
Nice move putting the mother and daughter scream queens together.
Oct 3rd, 2012 at 07:17 GMT
Nah, your choices are great. If your looking to expand the quiz, I'd suggest Aniston in Leprechaun, just for funsies. But I can't see any you already have that should be displaced.
Oct 6th, 2012 at 20:03 GMT
Heather Donahue and Milla Jovovich seem to be the wrong way round.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 03:37 GMT
I thought Watts was Kidman at first.

Wow, Jamie Lee looks like she has some "mother" issues! (Nice placement, citkeane).
Oct 24th, 2012 at 04:25 GMT
How is Milla Jovovich a "Scream Queen"? She's the most confident killer in the entire series. Being a woman in a horror movie does not make you a damsel in distress and certainly not a "Scream Queen."
Oct 24th, 2012 at 04:47 GMT
Can anyone tell me what the movies are for Bette Davis, Heather Donahue and Adrienne Barbeau?
Oct 24th, 2012 at 04:54 GMT
@abbott827, I didn't intend it to be taken so literally, I just thought it made for a snappy title. @Grindledorf, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, The Blair Witch Project and The Fog, respectively. @napb, thanks.
Comment below threshold:

Kinda ironic how this has nothing from "Saw", when the Scream Queens show was competing for a part in that. Also, that's not Linda Blair, pretty sure the mutated version of her was played by someone else, Mercedes McCambridge. I guess I can understand her being the answer since few are aware of that, but maybe at least accept both?
Oct 24th, 2012 at 05:24 GMT
@Zak6009, according to Wikipedia McCambridge provided the voice when the child was possessed but Linda Blair was the one acting in the scene. So, assuming that article is correct, the picture is of Linda Blair. Still that's a nice bit of movie trivia.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 06:55 GMT
@zak6009 and @citkeane: I have to agree with citkeane. Linda Blair later went on to try to blame her experiences on set and in makeup (as well as her own acting performance) for her problems with drugs. I believe Mercedes McCambridge did indeed do most of the voice for the possessed girl and was seen on screen as the girl under the hair in the parts that involved the girl in bed with a cross.

I know "The Ring" is far scarier, but Naomi Watts did some really good screaming in "King Kong", too. The image of Heather Langenkamp is so disturbing..."can you hear me now?"
Oct 24th, 2012 at 14:51 GMT
Good quiz, even though I would classify some of these movies as "suspense" rather than "horror." I knew it was Adrienne Barbeau, but I was thinking of her role in "The Crate" segment of Creepshow rather than The Fog
Oct 24th, 2012 at 16:09 GMT
I gotta get me one of them tongue phones.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 16:17 GMT
I could have sworn Adrienne Barbeau was Jeanne Tripplehorn.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 16:59 GMT
come on no dee wallace? she has been in every horror movie.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 17:12 GMT
Totally thought Naomi Watts was Charlize Theron in "Monster".

Continuing with the theme noted by needapausebutton, it would have been interesting to place Melanie Griffith next to Tippi Hedren, "Pacific Heights" perhaps? Thoroughly enjoyable quiz. Five globes from me.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 22:08 GMT
I finally know the name of the actress in the Psycho shower scene.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 22:32 GMT
Love the quiz, and the time span covered. Funny how the two Heathers are so little recognized when their movies are still so famous. Also, if a scream queen screams in a silent movie (say, Mary Philbin from Phantom of the Opers), does she make a sound?
Oct 24th, 2012 at 23:24 GMT
Did anyone else get Linda Blair when typing "Blair Witch Chick" for Heather Donahue?
Oct 25th, 2012 at 00:08 GMT
I was expecting Linnea Quigley to be on here.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 02:01 GMT
Or Sheri Moon Zombie!
Oct 25th, 2012 at 03:00 GMT
great quiz a sequel is in order for the greats not mentioned here and there are several of them. marylin burns,lee remick, mary winstead,sarah michelle gellar, and shawnee smith.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 04:12 GMT
@citkeane can you tell me what movies are heather langenkamp and tippi hedren in?
Oct 25th, 2012 at 04:16 GMT
@citkeane, never mind! Nightmare on Elm Street and the Birds! I've seen both of those but it was a long time ago. Also Heather looks like a ten year old there.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 13:46 GMT
Just being female and in a horror movie doesn't make someone a scream queen. Kathy Bates and Linda Blair were the villains in those two movies and Sigourney Weaver and Milla Jovovich were never in a damsel-in-distress situation in those two movies.
Oct 26th, 2012 at 21:29 GMT
It would be interesting to show the titles of the movies in parentheses after the answer appears.
Oct 27th, 2012 at 00:32 GMT
Whatever happened to Fay Wray, that delicate satin-draped frame?
Oct 27th, 2012 at 02:30 GMT
She went ape sh*t!
Oct 30th, 2012 at 00:48 GMT
Villains: Kathy Bates, Linda Blair, Bette Davis, Nicole Kidman and (to a degree) Sissy Spacek Action Heroines: Jodie Foster and Milla J Scream Queens are the unlikely hero of a horror movie that face off against a horror villain. Just because a woman is in a dark movie (Silence of the Lambs, Misery, Resident Evil and What Happened to Baby Jane aren't horror movies) doesn't make her a scream queen.
Nov 4th, 2012 at 18:43 GMT
Tippi Hendren's name (last row, second from left) is actually spelled "Hendron"
Nov 20th, 2012 at 16:37 GMT
Langenkamp looks like she's being hooked by a duck-head umbrella.
