ArtThe Edge of Illusion with Martine Johanna

From her show entitled “The grand illusion of sanity”, dutch painter Martine Johanna offers a series of surreal works that are lovely and enchanting. With her strong background in fashion, it’s no wonder we’re attracted to Johanna’s complex color palette, curvy line-work, and chic portraiture … not to mention the gorgeous model-esque faces. Take a moment to enjoy the darker side of these feminine works!

CelebrityLuLu*s Ode to Scream Queens

Halloween is quickly approaching, loves, and in honor of such a spooooky holiday, we are bringing you our definitive ranking of Scream Queens! What makes a “scream queen,” you might ask? Well, a queen of true screams is one kick-butt, no-fear girl who won’t go down without a fight. And she typically lasts through the sequel (or several), consistently proving why she rules the horror movie genre! So, without further ado, the babes that make blood look fierce!

Janet Leigh as Marion Crane
in
 Psycho

scream queens

The start of it all – when leading ladies in horror films were really put on the map – was with Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s spine-tingling Psycho. She may not have outlasted Norman Bates, but she did shock us all with the final scream!

Heather Langenkamp as Nancy Thompson
in A Nightmare on Elm Street

noes

Poor little Nancy Thompson just can’t get away from Freddy Krueger in Wes Craven’s big-screen nightmare, but she ultimately finds herself face-to-face with the killer, and brings us the term of “final girl” as she survives!

Sarah Michelle Gellar as Helen Shivers
in I Know What You Did Last Summer

Not only does Sarah Michelle make our list for her role as the gorgeously gruesome Helen, but we also have to acknowledge her roles as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and her lead as Karen in The Grudge. This girl has major pipes in the horror genre!

Jennifer Love Hewitt as Julie James
in I Know What You Did Last Summer

Good girl Julie James (a personal favorite) finds herself at odds with a man she and her friends “killed” one summer, only to discover that he isn’t dead at all, but seeking his vengeance. How she survives isn’t pretty, but hey, at least Freddie Prinze Jr. was by her side!

Drew Barrymore as Casey Becker
in Scream

scream1

Okay okay, so Drew Barrymore didn’t make it past that iconic first scene in Scream, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t still talking about her role and final scream in this cult classic. Wanna play a game?

Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott
in Scream

scream2

Our runner-up for THE leading lady of horror (and the actual Scream Queen) is Miss Sidney Prescott herself, who has made it through four terrifying films in which “Ghostface” stalks her and eliminates those around her one by one. Again, we ask, wanna play a game?

And the ULTIMATE Scream Queen…

Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode
in Halloween

As the daughter of the original leading lady of horror flicks, Janet Leigh (who also made our list), Jamie had big shoes to fill. Turns out, those genes run strong in such a talented family because Jamie Lee Curtis really took the title of scream queen and ran with it (get it?). Having survived through every sequel, we can’t imagine Michael Myers ever stood a chance against this bad babe!
