Why Sarah Michelle Gellar is My Favorite Scream Queen

Sarah Michelle Gellar sparked a revolution of female heroines in television.

 

Sarah Michelle Gellar is not only a scream queen, but a cult icon.  She has made several amazing horror movies, as well as stared in the revolutionary, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as Buffy herself.  She will always be my favorite scream queen, and here’s why.

She made the jump from television horror to movie horror

Most scream queens stick to the big screen, but not Sarah.  She was fighting off badies and things that go bump in the night for over seven years, twenty years ago.  While she was filming Buffy, she jumped right into Scream 2, playing a side character who met an untimely death.  Once Buffy the Vampire Slayer ran it’s natural course, she jumped right into The Grudge, and stared in multiple horror movies since then.

She is a female icon

Sarah was one of the very first, lead female heroines kicking butt in television history.  Most women previously played side characters while being dainty and fragile.  Not Sarah.  She sparked a revolution of female heroines in television since she appeared in Buffy.

Each Character is completely different

From Buffy to Karen, every character she plays is original, strong, and incites fear.

Thanks for reading guys!  This is just my opinion, and whether you disagree or agree, I would love to hear your thoughts or who your favorite scream queen is.  Take Care.

With Love,

Kenzie
