Jamie Lee Curtis launched her film career with the immortal 1978 horror classic Halloween, creating a heroine in Laurie Strode who would become the prototype for the ultimate scream queen. Subsequent roles in horror films like The Fog, Prom Night, Terror Train, Roadgames and Halloween II – all of which are genre classics – would cement Curtis’ status as cinema’s undisputed scream queen, a title she holds to this day. Jamie Lee Curtis: Scream Queen details Curtis’ career and life during her scream queen era and includes detailed and never-before-seen production histories – as well as running commentary – of the horror films that made Jamie Lee Curtis a genre icon.
Featuring hundreds of interviews with Curtis’ friends and colleagues – including John Carpenter, Richard Franklin, Debra Hill, Paul Lynch, Rick Rosenthal, Roger Spottiswoode – and years of intense research, Jamie Lee Curtis: Scream Queen is a comprehensive biography, an invaluable film reference, and a painstaking document of horror film history.by
