The “Prime Evil” Of The Gorgeous Ruth Collins! My “2023 Sex Kitten Countdown” Has This “Death Collector” In Her “Doom Asylum!”

Celebrating The Career Of Ruth Collins!

As you can see from that photo, Ruth Collins had a “classic Hollywood” beauty, and she had a great run of cult films as well!

My “2023 Sex kitten Countdown” has the story of Cult Movie Queen Ruth Collins, who appeared in some of the 80’s glossiest and most entertaining B-movies!

A “Beastie Boys” Beginning!

The 80’s were the decade of the MTV video, so it makes sense that Collins got her breakout role in one.

In 1987, Ruth was the lead dancer in the Beastie Boys video “No Sleep Till Brooklyn”, which led to her movie career that same year, the cult film “Galactic Gigolo”!

From that beginning, Ruth appeared in a number of great cult films of that time. 1988 was a big year with a number of appearances in films like these:

“Prime Evil”

The plot for this film is fairly straightforward: A coven of devil-worshiping monks living in New York City search for victims for their sacrificial ceremonies.

Of course, those satanitc rites are performed nude, so who can argue?

As you can see, the trailer is age restricted, but you can click the link and up it will pop!

To me, Collins looks very much like a young Scarlett Johanssen in these shots – and that’s not a bad thing at all:

That same year, Collins appeared in another low budget horror film:

“Doom Asylum”

A horribly disfigured lawyer, wrongfully pronounced dead after a terrible car accident, is taken to an asylum for dissection, only to come back alive, kill everyone, and make the asylum his killing grounds.

Check out this very entertaining trailer:

Collins has the chance to show off a bit – and the film gets good reviews for being a mindless slasher with a sense of humor and fun to go with the gore…

Here’s a fun bit of trivia: this was the movie debut of Kristin Davis, who went on to star in “Sex And The City” for years.

“Death Collector” 

Collins has a starring role in this thriller.

In a future time, when things have reverted back to the days of the Old West, a man goes after the gang that murdered his brother.

Here’s the very entertaining trailer:

As you can see, Collins was an appealing choice for a string of horror / action films with a comedic bent in many cases…like this one:

“Cemetery High”

Next up, Collins stars in this “vigilante” style action comedy, as a group of High School girls with guns go on a killing spree. They are intent on ridding the world of scummy men.

Check out the trailer:

The hits just kept coming, as Collins entered a world of “Prime Evil!”

“Prime Evil”

A coven of devil-worshiping monks living in New York City search for victims for their sacrificial ceremonies.

There’s her VERY Scarlett Johansson look again:

1989 saw her appear in erotic thrillers like “Sins Of Desire”.

She went on to appear in “Sexpot” in 1990.

A woman marries wealthy men, then arranges for them to have “accidental” deaths. The film was directed by Chuck Vincent, who also made a number of adult films in his career.

She made “Dead Boyz Can’t Fly” in 1992, and also appeared with Michelle Bauer in the 1992 horror film “Hell Roller.”

You know Bauer, one of the most popular “Scream Queens” of the 80’s and 90’s:

You can see more of Michelle’s work – including Director Fred Olen Ray’s terrific “Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers” – by clicking on my story here:

Ruth Collins continued to appear in a variety of cult films of that era:

These were some of the most entertaining “B” movies of an era that transitions from “drive-in” movie theaters to home video and pay cable…Ruth made her last film appearance in 1995’s “Witch Academy.”

Since then, Collins has transitioned into a Producer role. In fact, she produced “Moving America Forward”, hosted by William Shatner.

Bravo to Collins for a terrific career. I love these great 80’s Cult Movie Queens like Ruth – here’s another one:

Barbara Crampton had a great run of films in the 80’s and 90’s like “Re-Animator” – and she is still acting today! See more of her career by clicking on my story here:
