When your mother is the victim of the most famous onscreen murder of all time, the shower scene in Psycho, and your father portrayed one of America’s most notorious serial killers, the Boston Strangler, how the hell can you not have a career as a Scream Queen? Jamie Lee Curtis was probably slapped on the ass by Michael Myers when she was a baby. She has made the role of Laurie Strode as iconic as that of Michael himself and has appeared in 7 of the films in the Halloween series. In addition Miss Curtis has screamed her way through John Carpenter’s The Fog (1978), had herself a bloody time on Prom Night (1978) and rode the Terror Train in 1980.
Curtis has also appeared in non-genre fare such as Trading Places (1983), A Fish Called Wanda (1988) and True Lies (1994). She is a published children’s book author and a blogger for The Huffington Post online newspaper. She is the wife of actor/director Christopher Guest and is the godmother of Jake Gyllenhaal. Written in Blood honors Miss Jamie Lee Curtis as our Scream Queen of the Month for October 2011!
