#27 Screams in the night

Beware of Banshee Wails

The best way I can describe a Scream Queen, or so as far as their scream goes is the high pitched wail of a banshee. That frequency that makes your ear drum vibrate and just a little away from breaking glass. I liken those in the 30’s black and white movies as more the scream queens as I have yet to hear any modern day actress shriek like them (see the Black & White video in the ‘Shrieks in the night’ section).
