Ah, Scream Queens…every horror fan has a special place in their heart for these lovely ladies with their voluminous lung capacity and penchant for running across homicidal maniacs. Everyone knows the classic Scream Queens like Janet Leigh and her daughter Jamie Lee Curtis and then there are some of the lesser known but no less beloved Scream Queens like the 1980s fan favorites Linnea Quigley and Barbara Crampton. But who are the current crop of Scream Queens? Who are the ladies that are spending all of their movie screen time running for their lives from folks that are trying to kill them? Well I am glad you asked because I have a list of a few of my favorites after the cut.

Synopsis: From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood. The Lords of Salem tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem? (Source)
