I have always maintained that the only requirements for someone to be Scream Queen of the Month are that they be A. Female (I have never heard of a Scream King and I hope I never do, no offense to anyone); and B. They have to have appeared in at least one horror movie during the course of their career. That being said I have a small confession to make: I like it when the lovely lady that I choose for the month has a nice list of horror credits to her name. It just seems to lend more credibility to her contributions to the genre.
Born December 7, 1972 in Oakland, California, Christa Campbell has starred in her fair share of horror movies. Starting in 2004 with The Drone Virus, Christa has appeared in 2001 Maniacs and Death by Engagement (both 2005); she starred in the remake of the classic The Wicker Man (2006); 2007 saw her in Showdown at Area 51 while in 2008 she had roles in Day of the Dead and Audie & the Wolf. Keeping busy she appeared in 2009 in Gurdian and The Tomb (aka Ligeia); with 2010 came 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams and Blood: A Butcher’s Tale. She hit us up in 2011 with Drive Angry, Hyenas and the horror short Spoon. Taking a break from horror in 2012 she returned in Spiders 3-D in 2013 and Seed 2 and Awaken in 2014 and 2015, respectively and she has completed Citrus Springs for release later this year.
Christa has also made appearances in Erotic Confessions Vols. 1, 3, 6 and 11 alongside former Playboy Playmate Ava Fabian in 1996 and 1999; The Crew (2000), The New Guy (2002), Malibu’s Most Wanted (2003), Mozart and the Whale (2005), Hallows Point (2007), Labor Pains (2009), The Mechanic (2011) and The Iceman (2012).
