Stay Safe The Linnea Quigley Way!
A Facebook friend posted this, and after I laughed out loud, I realized that Cult Movie Queens like Linnea Quigley are EXACTLY what we need right now!
So, even though I am stuck at home, I am going to stay healthy, the “Linnea Quigley” way!
Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout!
This has been around for awhile, but I just found out about it, and it looks great!
Linnea Quigly is cinema’s greatest “Scream Queen”, and she still appears at conventions and has s robust social media presence.
Check out this trailer:
After a brisk workout, a shower is indeed required, and then it’s time to sit back and let some classic Linnea Quigley films entertain you!
How can you NOT love a movie that has this tag line:
“They Charge An Arm And A Leg!”
And a “subtle” poster like this!
Time To Celebrate The Bloody Fun Of “Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers!”
Yes, the title should tell you how “tongue in bloody cheek” this film is, but that’s what makes it a classic! First, check out this vintage movie trailer – oh, be warned that it is full of sex, nudity and blood – everything that makes Halloween great!
Check out the trailer:
Here is the film’s plot, courtesy of the great website “DVD Drive-in”:
“On the hunt for runaway Oxnard teenager Samantha, Los Angeles private detective Jack Chandler stumbles across an LAPD investigation into a series of chainsaw serial killings when thinks homicide detective Harrison’s “Cuisinart Queen” suspect – caught “making Chicken McNuggets with a chainsaw” – might be the missing girl!”
“Chicken McNuggets With A Chainsaw”!
First of all, bravo to the modern scream queen Linnea Quigley, who gives a terrific performance in the film! The late 80’s were a delirious time for low-budget filmmaking…from “Re-Animator” to “Chainsaw Hookers”, movies were trying to keep the spirit of the drive-in alive – just bloodier, sexier and with a knowing wink to the audience!
Bravo as well to Director Fred Olen Ray, who has made a number of great cult films – and according to DVD Drive-In, he made “Hookers” in just five days!
Greg Kenner’s “MovieTime” Moment!
DVD Drive-In also reports there is a great “extra” on the blu-ray release: a vintage “MovieTime Hollywood Premiere” (3:53) in which later Oscar-nominated actor Greg Kinnear pays his dues condescendingly covering the film’s premiere interviewing Quigley, Wildsmith, Camp Video’s Jim Goff, Sybil Danning (who is “always interested in a seeing a good documentary”), and cabaret act “Les Stevens and the Lovely Carol”.
As one of the folks who worked at MovieTime in the day, this is a great piece of nostalgia!
And here’s another classic Quigley film – with a nude cemetery dance!
Yes, America’s greatest Scream Queen also liked to shake it onscreen, as she did in this classic film:
“The Return Of The Living Dead” is a blast, and Scream Factory brought out a great blu-ray – check out the trailer:
Watch Linnea at her best, and follow her online as well!
You should follow Linnea – her Twitter account has all the info on her ongoing career and personal appearances:
And keep looking for her best films, like one that was made AS A BET!
Yes, Linnea starred in this 80’s comedic slasher – and the film was made on a dare!
Brinke Stevens and Michelle Bauer starred as well – click on my story here to find out how this cult gem was made:
