Useful Notes / Scream Queens

Scream queens are actresses who become associated with Horror or/and Slasher movies, either through an appearance in a notable entry in the genre as a frequent victim or through constant appearances as the female protagonist.

While the term is more specifically used to refer to the "attractive young Damsels in Distress" characters, some are more, if not, if downright capable of taking care of themselves.

May be the Final Girl if their characters are lucky enough to survive.
