Playboy Ranks the Sexiest Scream Queens of All Time: Monique Dupree, Debbie Rochon, Tiffany Shepis Make List!


Playboy, the #1 men’s magazine and multi-million dollar merchandise line, has taken a shot at some horror themed articles just in time for this Halloween season. One such article, published today by B.J. Colangelo, is a ranking of the 50 sexiest scream queens in the game.

What I Like About the List: It includes “scream queens” (I’ll get to that in a second…) from all walks of life and generations of filmmaking. You’ll find women from huge Hollywood blockbusters, women from straight-to-DVD titles, and women from independent films. You’ll find women who were in pioneering and groundbreaking horror titles, women from the golden age of horror, and some of the best up-and-comers of today. It really is a thorough, somewhat researched list.

What I Don’t Like About the List: It should be called “50 Sexiest Actresses Who Have Done Horror Films” instead. Because, honestly, some of the girls are not scream queens. Jennifer Tilly is not a scream queen, just because she was in two Child’s Play sequels. Jennifer Love Hewitt is not a scream queen, just because she did I Know What You Did Last Summer. Anna Paquin is not a scream queen, just because she did “True Blood.” The argument of scream queen vs. horror actress is raging right now, and this list may be another casualty in the debate.
