Celebrating A Modern Day Adult Star!
Here’s the story of a Cult Movie Queen who crossed my path when someone shared a film poster – and I wanted to know more!
My “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” looks at this empowered female who crossed over from adult films and appeared in a neglected gem!
Jelena Jensen has had an active career in the adult film world – but I had no idea who Jelena was, until I came across one credit: more in a moment.
Here’s a little background on Jelena.
Jensen was born in Los Angeles in 1981.
According to the great website IMDB.com, she graduated in May 2003 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Television Production with an Emphasis in Producing from Chapman University in Orange, CA.
Jelena Jensen was a former Playboy Model and Penthouse Pet, before going into film, where she has amassed almost 200 credits!
She began working in “direct to video” projects in 2003, and now of course these projects are found on streaming sites.
Here are a few of her films:
She also hosted Playboy TV’s “Totally Busted” and had many other credits as well….but here is the way I discovered her:
Jelena’s “Bad Biology!”
Jelena was part of a cult classic that plays like an homage to the drive-in/grindhouse era!
This 2008 film was directed by Frank Henenlotter, known for his “Basket Case” trilogy and many other cult gems. Here’s the plot as described by IMDB.com:
“Driven by biological excess, a man and a woman search for sexual fulfillment, unaware of each other’s existence. Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings ends in a god awful love story.”
Here’s the trailer:
Jelena has a notorious scene in the film: she’s the “girl in shower” – who has a very invited guest join her!
Well, if that doesn’t make you want to find this movie ASAP, I don’t know what will!
Henenlotter also directed “Brain Damage” and one of my all-time favorites:
Patty Mullen starred in this one, and she was mesmerizing:
