Number 20. Linnea Quigley
Linnea Quigley in Don't Go Near The Park (1981) and Return of the Living Dead (1985)
Born in Iowa in 1957, Linnea Quigley became the
golden girl of 1980s horror exploitation cinema and
has appeared in nearly 100 movies. Though many
of her films have been poor Quigley has always
stood out, and has been lucky enough to appear
in a few genre classics. Return of the Living Dead
(1985) being a particular highlight. One thing's for sure: Linnea is one helluva sexy Scream Queen!

Not reknowned for her acting ability, but better than most. Pretty as a peach in her early years, going for a more 'rock chick' look later. Wasn't afraid to strip off, but did wear a Mirkin to cover her pubes in Return of the Living Dead. Quigley also had a pretty good scream.

Number 19. Brigitte Skay
Brigitte Skay in Mario Bava's Bay of Blood (1971) and the Nazi exploitation classic SS Hell Camp (1977)

This flame-haired Italian beauty is best known for
her appearances in Mario Bava's Bay of Blood (1971) and sleazy Nazi exploitation classic SS Hell Camp (aka Beast In Heat, 1977). There's no doubting her looks -
Ms. Skay is one hot lady and is not afraid to strip
off for the camera. She's surely some top Euro tottie!

A fairly composed but typically Italian acting style. Possesses wonderful hazel eyes and Sophia Loren style looks - very striking. Stripped off naked for a famous scene in Mario Bava's Bay of Blood. Good screaming skills in that very same film, but not much else to scream about.

Number 18. Margit Evelyn Newton
Margit Evelyn Newton in Hell of the Living Dead (1980)
Margi Newton is something of a cult exploitation favourite among
splat fans though she has only appeared in a few films of note.
Her appearance in Hell of the Living Dead (1980) is noteworthy for
some starlingly brazen (and hilarious) nudity, as well as for her
eye-popping death scene. Newton also made appearances in
The Last Hunter (1980) and The Bronx Executioner (1989) before
disappearing from the exploitation movie scene.

Margit is the queen of cheesy Italian acting. An unfair comment when you consider how few films she made. She is a very sexy lady though - reinforced by her scenes in Hell of the Living Dead, where she strips to reveal her perfect breasts. Otherwise she wouldn't be on this list!

Number 17. Brooke Adams
Brooke Adams in Shock Waves (1977), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) and David Cronenberg's The Dead Zone (1983)

In the 1980s Brooke Adams was seriously
hot stuff. She appeared in a number of genre
classics including: Shock Waves (1977), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) and The Dead Zone (1983). Unfortunately Brooke is a Scream Queen who kept her clothes on, so we never really got to see her growler.

Number 16. Lorraine De Selle
Lorraine De Selle in House On The Edge of the Park (1980) and Cannibal Ferox (1981)
  Demure, intelligent and sophisticated, Lorraine De Selle is a Paris-born actress who took starring roles in some of the sickest exploitation films of the Eighties. She is also known for her appearances in the Laura Gemser Emanuelle movies, and as the head warden in the 1982 Italian cheapie Violence In A Woman's Prison. She is most famous for her roles in Umberto Lenzi's Cannibal Ferox (1981), and Ruggero Deodato's House On The Edge of the Park (1980).

Lorraine is a competant actress; not what you would call 'great', but very 'game' and comfortable with scenes of sexual violence. Looks like a sophisticated girl-next-door type. Not scared of showing her naked body. Did a lot of screaming in Ferox and Edge of the Park.

Number 15. Tisa Farrow

Softly-spoken Tisa Farrow, sister of actress
Mia Farrow (Rosemary's Baby, 1968), worked
as a taxi driver before she got into acting.
Tisa Farrow appeared in a number of notable sick horror films, including Lucio Fulci's gut-muching classic Zombie (1979) and Joe D'Amato's Anthropophagous (1980), before giving up acting to become a full-time nurse

Number 14. Catriona MacColl
Catriona MacColl in City of the Living Dead (1980), The Beyond (1981) and House By the Cemetery (1981)
Born in London, England in 1954, Catriona MacColl began acting in the late Seventies - starting with TV roles, and a minor part in the cheesy sword and sorcery movie Hawk The Slayer (1980) - before breaking through in Lucio Fulci's highly-regarded zombie classic City of the Living Dead (also 1980). In this film Catriona proved her screaming credentials in a scene where she is buried alive inside a coffin, then dug out by a man with a pickaxe. It's MacColl at her hysterical best. Director Fulci liked Catriona so much that he cast her in two more movies in 1981 - The Beyond and House By the Cemetery. Both have since gone on to become sick classics in their own right, and MacColl has become a favourite of genre fans worldwide.

Number 13. Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween (1978) and Halloween II (1981)

The daughter of Janet Leigh (Psycho, 1960) and Tony Curtis (The Manitou, 1978), Jamie-Lee Curtis is more of a Hollywood thoroughbred than any actor in this feature. Her big break came when she landed the role of Laurie Strode in John Carpenter's classic Halloween (1978), a movie in which she did a lot of screaming. Curtis then went on to star in a couple more good horror films - with John Carpenter again in The Fog (1980), and in the under-rated, pick-up-where-it-left-off sequel Halloween II (1981).

Unquestionably a talented actress. In her early years looked like a Seventies tomboy, but later blossomed into a fine figure of a woman. Didn't do any nudity in her horror films - saved that for Trading Places and a few other rare instances. Great, distinct scream too.

Raquel Meroño in Stuart Gordon's Dagon (2001)
Some might disagree with the inclusion of Spanish-born Meroño into this feature, but we'd have to say: "check out Stuart Gordon's Dagon (2001)..." Not only is it a really good film, but Meroño also gives a surprisingly good performance as a Scream Queen. She's hot. She's a good actress. She gets her kit off. What more do you want?

Number 11. Olga Karlatos
Olga Karlatos in Lucio Fulci's Zombie (1979)
Super-MILF Olga Karlatos is most famous for her amazing performance in Lucio Fulci's Zombie (1979). In that film she plays the improbably beautiful wife of a doctor trapped on a zombie-infested Carribbean island. She shows off her great body in a shower scene, before having her eye impaled by a bloody great spike. It's a classic of sick cinema and a much-loved scene, all thanks to the wonderful Olga. Karlatos also starred in a number of other notable genre films during the Seventies and Eighties, including: Keoma (aka Django Strikes Again, 1975), Cyclone (1978), and Lucio Fulci's Murder-Rock - Dancing Death (aka Slashdance, 1984).
