Celebrating 2022’s Top Cult Movie Queens – And Who’s Up For 2023? Sasha Grey Perhaps?

Celebrating 2022’s Most Popular Cult Movie Queen!

I spent last week sharing the most popular stories of 2022 – profiles of the greatest Cult Movie Queens across all era of exploitation cinema…and Shannon Whirry – one of the legendary “VHS Superstars” was the most popular story I posted!

Shannon Whirry made a lot of films in the 90’s – most of which were direct-to-paycable or VHS – and were VERY popular…but there were many more you responded to as well:

Actress Mathilda May’s wild turn in the 80’s sci-fi mindblower “Lifeforce” was very popular this year as well…but first, let’s begin with a classic from 2021, which still racked up more views than anything I posted in 2022 – maybe because it may be the most decadent X-rated film in history to feature “A” list stars!

Helen Mirren Starred In “Caligula!”

Yes, my story of “Caligula” still brings in the crowds – aside from Mirren it also starred Malcolm McDowell and a bevy of Penthouse Pets as well!

From the controversy surrounding the making of this film – to the mysterious things that happened to those Pets afterwards, this film has quite he reputation!

There are so many more stories to tell about “Caligula.”

Here is the story of a great 3-disc special edition that really dives into to everything you want to know about this notorious film!

Another hugely popular story I shared in 2021 is still going strong a year later:

Shelly Jamison was a News Anchor who appeared in Playboy and was fired from her job!

In 2022, one legendary Sex Kitten was the most viewed new story of the year:

One of the XXX-rated stars of the “Golden Age Of Porn” also got huge views this year – for good reason:

All Hail Desiree Cousteau!

From “Pretty Peaches” on, this Adult Superstar had a wild career and you can see it all here:

As for Actress Mathilda May, she had a long and acclaimed career – but everyone knows her for this 80’s sci-fi gem:

Mathilda’s “almost always nude” role in “Lifeforce” is iconic – click here for the trailer and tons of great trivia about the film and May’s great career!

And the most viewed story of 2022, of all that were shared this year?

As I said earlier, time to all hail this “VHS Superstar!”

Shannon Whirry!

She was an empowered Actress at a time of direct-to-video erotic dramas and thrillers, and you all loved her more than anyone else I featured in 2022 – click here to see more of her!

ow, what’s ahead in 2023?

How about Sasha Grey?

I took Sasha “down under” once to the world’s most popular “Adult lifestyle” convention, SEXPO!

Yes, that is exactly what you think you are looking at!

That wild trip is coming soon!

Adult Star Riley Steele also shot a special about “Sexpo” and you’ll see more of her as we’ll…and I am also going to dive into some of the notorious new blurry releases available now:

Yes, it’s going to be a great year of cult cinema ahead!

    Thank you so much for all your work on this excellent website and the

    Really looking forward to the New Years , new content.
    You should do a feature on an old, favorite actress I adore – Diana Dors
    I think she was the epitome of “Swinging 60″s goddess.
