The Scream Queens of Film: Brooke Adams

August 2, 2012

CLICK HERE TO RETURN TO THE SCREAM QUEEN INDEX

Born in 1949, Brooke Adams is one of our older Scream Queens.  She’s been in The Unborn (1991), The Stuff  (1985), The Dead Zone  (1983), and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).  Odd little fun fact: she is Tony Shaloub’s sister-in-law.

She may not be overly glamorous.  But what she brings to her horror roles is a sense of mature credibility.

 Bringing a sense of credibility to Homicidal yogurt and anglo-fros [The Stuff]…

 …identity-stealing aliens [Invasion of the Body Snatchers]…

…the old “there’s a spider over your head” gag…

 …and even to Christopher Walken [The Dead Zone], who has never been taken  seriously in any other movie ever.
