LOS ANGELES (AP) -- One of Roger Corman's so-called "scream queens" is gone.

Hazel Court died of a heart attack at age 82 at her home near Lake Tahoe, California.

One of her most famous roles is in the 1963 film "The Raven." Other films include "The Premature Burial," "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Curse of Frankenstein" and "Devil Girl from Mars."

These films helped propel Court to cult status and brought her fan mail even in her later years.

Court had finished an autobiography called "Hazel Court: Horror Queen," which will be published in her native England.
