Intro:

Scream queens are women in horror movies who scream on facing dangerous situations. It can be the threat of a psychopath or a wild animal or anything else able to hurt or even kill them. No matter what - they are clearly in the role of the threatened victim, even though they might defend themselves or at last strike back. This time there are also male screamers. Which of them do you think is the most impressive scream queen or king to you? (Please count the all-in-all-impression, not the amount of roles and feel invited to vote even when you have seen just a few of them)

Rules:

You can suggest any scream queen or king here. It's about characters that are threatened in any form. They should have screamed because of the situation in the movies. It's about defensive positions that can (but not must) turn to aggressive behavior. Before you suggest, please think on the stereotype of scream queens. That can also be screamers in a manly way. Surprised, staggered, stunned - crying or shouting out of a defensive position.

It's always good to look on the list first to get an impression about how it would look like later. So I do better understand for myself what suggesters are about to suggest. Because the list is the first that people see after klicking on the link on IMDb. If I got questions then, I read the rules. Anyway next I read the rules. It helps me to get a more fitting first impression.

But wait a little. Does he also scream when not torured? If he only screams by being totured, it would not fit the criteria. Everyone would  scream by getting tortured physically. Scream queens scream by a thread they face. It's more based on fear and/or the imagination of what happens next.

Breumaster, I'm not demanding on Shatner's inclusion in the list and I haven't seen the film in entirety so I don't know whether he screams often. :) I'd say that 35 options available are already well enough.

Breumaster,

Please change thread to threat.

From:
It can be the thread of a psychopath or a wild animal or anything else able to hurt or even kill them.

Breumaster,

Thanks for making the edit.

I missed these two typos:

From:
No matter what - they are clearly in the role of the threatened victim, even though they might defense theirselves or at last strike back. This time there are also male screamers.

To:

What a great idea! The first two provide a really tough choice for me. I'll probably vote for the one that gets less votes - it gets me off the hook, lol.

FYC:
Jennifer Carpenter https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1358539/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1

You're very welcome. 

I still don't know how I'm going to decide my vote, though, except for the one of my three favorites that is getting the least votes. : ) Actors who can scream authentically  amaze me.

Hi Breu, May I suggest two small edits to the intro? This is a really good intro, btw, and well written. If only I could speak and write Spanish -- or any second language -- half as well as you do with English. 
('Edits in bold below.)

Scream queens are women in horror movies who scream on facing dangerous situations. It can be the threat of a psychopath or a wild animal or anything else able to hurt or even kill them. No matter what - they are clearly in the role of the threatened victim, even though they might defend themselves or at last strike back. This time there are also male screamers. Which of them do you think is the most impressive scream queen or king to you?(Please count the all-in-all-impression, not the amount of roles) Help them here.
