“It’s too bad we had to kill her. I really liked the outfit she had on.”

Time For Some Cult Camp Classics – With Cinema’s Reigning Cult “Scream Queen!”

I love Linnea Quigley! Her movies are some of the most entertaining cult movies of the 80’s!

Linnea Quigley is best known for an incredible run of 80’s horror films, and became America’s most legendary “Scream Queen!”

Her breakout role was in the 1981 slasher film, “Graduation Day”, followed by ” Savage Streets”, “Silent Night, Deadly Night” and “Nightmare Sisters”…where she always managed to stay very clean!

A Scream Queen “Legend” Is Born!

Quigley had a number of films to her name by the mid-80’s, making a name for herself and building up a loyal fan base. And then, it was time to “rock it” to the big time!

Linnea Shows Off Her Talent!

Yes, that’s a very naked Linnea Quigley dancing in a graveyard in the hit movie “The Return Of The Living Dead!”

In 1985, Quigley broke out big time with her sexy “dance with the dead” – she played teenage punk “Trash”!

Here is the trailer for this 80’s horror camp classic:

Linnea’s Camp Horror Trifecta!

“Return Of The Living Dead” made Quigley a star, but for me, 1988 was the year she became America’s “Scream Queen” forever!

In 1988, Quigley starred in the “perfect storm” of evil – three 80’s horror classics, beginning with a movie that screams 80’s excess – even in its title!

Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-A-Rama


“Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-A-Rama!”

What makes this movie perfect is, of course, the title – not just for using the word “Slimeball”, but because it was originally known as “The Imp!”

Linnea Quigley The Imp

Yes, the plot of this film is simple: sorority babes worship an Imp that grants deadly wishes. And it had this classic line:


“It’s too bad we had to kill her. I really liked the outfit she had on.”

Check out the somewhat annoying trailer:

Campy? Sure! A whole lot of fun to watch! Absolutely! Next up is another 80’s horror classic:

night of the demons horror

“Night Of The Demons!”

Talk about a film that completely captures the spirit of horror in the 80’s!

Here is the trailer for “Night Of The Demons”:

Once again, Quigley steals the film, which is a “kids go to party and die instead” setup, this time in an abandoned funeral parlor. Quigley’s imaginative use of lipstick, plus some well-placed nudity, was all it took for the film to be a huge hit!

According to IMDB, Linnea and special effects artist Steve Johnson met when she came in to get the mold for her fake breasts done! They were later married.

And finally, 1988 finished off with one of the wildest films she’d ever starred in!

“Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers!”

Another of the greatest movie titles of all time, and a really fun horror film that delivers lots of blood, gore and sex!

The 80’s were the height of Quigley’s “scream queen” career, but she continues to act and make personal appearances…and she’s also a great Author!

Linnea Quigley book

Quigley has written three books; “The Linnea Quigley Bio & Chainsaw Book”, “I’m Screaming as Fast as I Can: My Life in B-Movies” and “Skin”…check them out at Amazon!

  1. Ann-Margaret got so sexy as she got older. She was irresistible in ‘Tommy’, and lovely in ‘Magic’ too.
