Bite Into Virginia Madsen’s “Candyman” For Halloween! My “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown” Has Madsen’s “Hot Spot!”

Celebrating The Sultry Virginia Madsen!

As we celebrate “all things horror” this Halloween season, my “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown” has the cult shocker “Candyman”, starring one of cinema’s most provocative Actresses, Virginia Madsen!

Virginia was born in Chicago, Illinois, and belongs to an acting family – her brother is Michael Madsen, and her mother, Elaine Madsen (née Melson), was an Emmy-winning Writer, Poet, and Producer.

She’s made award-winning films and Tv shows, but since it’s Halloween, let’s focus on some of her best cult films – and her horror classic!

Celebrating This Provocative Cult Movie Queen!

Virginia Madsen has had a terrific career, getting off to a hot start!

Madsen made a very revealing movie debut in 1983’s “Class”:

“Class” had a cast filled with 80’s “Brat Packers”, but she found a way to make an impact with this scene to be sure!

Check out the trailer:

She next appeared in the 1984 science fiction epic “Dune”, but it was the ext year when she made another revealing appearance in the film “Creator”:

A bit of a throwaway comedy, but Madsen showcased her natural beauty again in the film – she really knew how to make an impact, and the camera clearly loved her:

She also appeared in this comic horror film in 1987:

“Zombie High”

This goofy horror film gave Madsen a chance to take on a bigger role.

Check out the trailer:

Madsen was on a roll now, and had a great starring opportunity with Tommy Lee Jones next:


Here’s the plot: Eddie is a private detective. When a client asks him to help persuade his ex-wife to leave him alone, Eddie says yes. Nothing strange about that, right?

Well, ‘ex’ refers to the fact that she died 10 years ago. Eddie thinks this will be an ‘easy money’ case, but soon falls for the beautiful woman who insists she’s no ghost. Is she, or isn’t she?

Well, we know that she’s nude at least!

In 1990, Madsen cemented her position as one of cinema’s most popular sex kittens when she starred along with Don Johnson in this erotic thriller:

“The Hot Spot”

This film was directed by Dennis Hopper, and offered a lot of sex and nudity among the cast.

Upon arriving to a small town, a drifter quickly gets into trouble with the local authorities – and the local women – after he robs a bank.

Check out the trailer:

This modern day film noir also featured a very nude Jennifer Connelly and Debra Cole as well:

Time For “Candyman!”

Up next for Madsen was this horror classic – a film Madsen says she is recognized for most:


This hugely popular shockers tells the story of The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, who is summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster’s myth.

Madsen is phenomenal in the film as the grad student who goes face-to-face with pure evil.

Check out the trailer:

This is a great urban horror film, and Madsen claims that she was hypnotized for some of the scenes in the film – after seeing the movie, I can understand why!

In a 2012 interview, Virginia Madsen said this film is the one she is most recognized for, especially at airports. “More people recognize me from that movie than anything I’ve done,” she told HorrorNewsNetwork. “It means a lot to me. It was after years of struggling. As an actor, you always want a film that’s annual, like It’s a Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story. I just love that I have a Halloween movie. Now it’s kind of legend this story. People have watched it since they were kids, and every Halloween it’s on, and they watch it now with their kids. That means a lot to me. The place I get recognized the most is the airport security for some reason. Every person in airport security has seen Candyman. Maybe it makes them a little afraid of me.”

There is no better way to celebrate Halloween than with “Candyman”, a great horror thriller – and bravo to Madsen for her incredible performance.

In fact, the Actress has amassed over 125 acting credits!

Those are some of her most popular or provocative roles, and she was nominated for an Academy Award for the film “Sideways.” She’s not the only acclaimed Actress who has bared all in film:

Yes, Helen Mirren is an Oscar-winning Best Actress and a fearless Actress as well.
