What do I
have to say about Ginger? She's
beautiful and is satisfactory
with her roles in films when she
plays a nasty girl but not the
greatest actress of all time with
other roles. However, I think
she's too good to be in the adult
films industry and is still
remembered for her work in it. I
could see her in a 'Beverly Hills 90210' type of
show. Like Traci Lords she too
moved onto low budget acting and
gained a reputation in the odd horror
flick so not exactly a scream queen just yet. She hasn't gotten her
break just yet like Traci Lords
has to be noted as mainly a
b-film actress but she's working
I had the honour meeting Ginger on October of 2010 at the Weekend of Horrors in Burbank, California as she was a very pleasant lady to know, open minded, patient, friendly and easy to talk to. In fact she was one of my favourite people I met along with Adrienne King, Geretta Geretta and Robert Z'Dar.

She briefly retired
as work stopped being fun and she
had very little time off. During
that same year she was approached
by the FBI to testify on the

Then she played the role
of Christeenth in her first

Ginger was a regular as Crystal Chandler in the cheesy sci-fi TV series 'Super Force' in 1991-92 taking place in the year 2020, an astronaut becomes a vigilante when he returns from a mission to learn his cop brother's been murdered.
Apparently Ginger had a tough
battle with drugs and alcohol and went into
rehab in 1992.
Close to that same
year, she worked again with 'Vice Academy' writer,
director, producer Rick Sloane
and played Brenda in his
exploited horror film 'Mind,

also starred B-film actor Wings

nudity during some scenes and she

she realised that she missed the

In 2002, she still pursued more

her get noticed too.

see her on the big screen and became a bigger box office and a 'Grindhouse' type of flick too!

Wild Man . 1989 Ginger has one of the main supporting roles in this one as she portrays a nice and innocent but lustful secretary named Dawn Hall in which she acts attractive to the title character named Eric Wilde (Played by Don Scribner) who's an ex-commando trying to stop a psychotic drug dealer in which she then appears in other scene's with himand hooking up with him as they get it on with one another. She speaks smoothly and kind of sexy too which worked for her but however has a hard time pulling off her character in certain parts of the film coming off as a bit rough.
Of course she take off her top and has a sex scene with him although this moment wasn't convincing at all but yet it looked relaxing to watch and fairly silent.
She breezes in other scene's as there's a shocking situation where she gets emotional in which she is a bit rough at doing.
Plus she has a long workout scene with sexpot scream queen Michelle Bauer as a news reporter named Trisha Collins who helps Wilde into trying to track this criminal down. The two fo them are having a discussion as it looked like Ginger had a dispute with her before the shoot and was forced to have a decent conversation with her as there's alot of close up shots on their various workout machines which is supposed to be a turn on for the lustful fans of hers. Then after her workout she is nearly strangled in her vehicle with a thug behind her
and Trisha catches him in the act with a good emotional moment after she is rescued which looked pretty convincing. Then she is never seen again and Bauer's character steals the rest of the scene's with Scribner's character.
This fairly exploited crime action film has a ton of bad acting and a bad movie in general as there's a ton of corny scene's that tries to add humor to some elements but they look incredibly embarrassing and some scene's that were trying to look disturbing but those one's were way too off the wall and amateurishly done as well.
This flick went straight to video along with terrible computerised special effects due to the lack of a budget it was carrying including a fake window being shattered after a thug is thrown out of a window or close to the end when a building explodes.
A kind of ripoff combo on 'Shaft' (Except for a white cast), 'Miami Vice' or other types of old school shows in this same vein. It's also overly long and dragging too.
Alien. 1989 Ginger has a
supporting role in this film with
Linnea Quigley. They both play rocker
chicks to a nerd named Wesley
played by Billy Jacoby who has a
hard time getting a girl to go
out with him and a substitute
teacher who is an alien played by
cult icon Judy Landers that gives
him a tracking device on his head
that makes girls sexually aroused
Ginger and Linnea
are Wesley's lustful images that
go to each event he's at. Ginger
is also topless with Linnea in one
scene of the film after Judy
Landers' character does an
experiment with him so that
should please all of her fans.
This was a comedy spoof on sci-fi
shows and was directed by
exploited direct-to-video icon
Cleo/Leo. 1989 Ginger has a good supporting role in this one named Karen in which she portrays a nice girl in the flick and was quite passable by pulling off her character here. It features a few porn stars but this is not a porn flick but another exploited sex comedy that aired in USA Up All Night along with it being shown at the Cannes Film Festival before going to VHS.
She travelled to Toronto, Ontario in Canada for this one and some of the dialogues can come across as one of those porn flicks due to some cheesiness by what we spot here.
She is seen in the first bit of the film working in an office for a male chauvinist who's name is Leo Blockman (Scott Baker) who treats his women employees as sex object and then one day a prostitute teaches him a lesson by nearly shooting him as he falls into a river and comes out as a woman and has a butch attitude at first but realises that she has to live everyday as a female and spotting on other male's hitting on her in a bad way. She has to tell everyone that her name is Cleo Clock (Veronica Hart) since Leo is rumored to have drowned in the river.
Ginger comes in as someone who is friendly to her and offers Cleo to stay with her as things look intersting when they go to her suite in which she comes out of the shower and fully nude top to bottom asking Cleo if she can help dry her off. There's almost suggested lesbian moments while we watch this as it is a bit of a teaser.
She breezes through many other scene's eventually putting her foot down to men making chauvinist remarks towards her too as there's good messages here on how to treat a lady with respect and imagining if you were in that situation.
Alot of the performances here were challenging pieces and some of these people seemed to pull through okay even if at time it was slightly cheesy.
Tons of gratitious nudity on dressing and undressing and an average flick. It's a cheesy flick but a good message to it.
Academy. 1989 If you
remember 'Police Academy' which was
a spoof on crime drama shows of
people training to be officer's
this film was like a trashy version on that one with a Z-grade
budget and a thinner plot.

training Academy named Holly

According to sex-pot scream
queen Linnea Quigley, who starred
with her in this one too, that she was
always showing up late on set,
hung over and very demanding but meeting her myself I found her to be the total opposite.
I found Ginger to be the
best actress in that film as the
plot was very stale and average
and her performance spiced it up.
She was also in part 2 & 3
and does a good job in those
one's too but an actress from
part 3 named Darcy DeMoss
refused to have her name uncredited
in the film as there were rumors that the two of them clashed and even walked off set
during their last takes on part
3. But again that is gossip which shouldn't be spread unless it's a proven fact.
Yet she had a falling out with the filmmaker Rick Sloane after part 3 and never returned to reprise any of the other 3 sequels that were made afterwards in which those one's became obscure probably due to her fans enjoying her work in the first three alltogether.
Satan's Storybook . 1989 Ginger had the lead role in this horror antholoy which is the wraparound story to two chapters told in this flick. It's not someone introducing a story like you'd picture in most of the types as she portrays a warriror named Christeeth who kidnaps Queen Elonite (Leslie Deutsch) whom belongs to Satan (Ray Robert) whom is upset by all of this by his Jester (Michael Daevid) unravels two tales to tell him in order to entertain him from being unhappy.
The acting in this cheaply budgeted made-for-video flick is pretty bad and Ginger seems to struggle in her performance when she tries to speak powerfully like a warrior should. However this doesn't seem to do the trick at all. Yet she stands out nicely in her part. Also does some battling with some demonic monsters which looked enjoyable to watch.
There's no nudity whatsoever so this may disappoint her fans and the actors are full of virutal unknowns with a couple of them who mainly worked as writers that took a shot for the first time acting yet failed to perform well.
The film can be a fun trip to watch with a group of friends especially on a Halloween night but if you're in the mood for a higher quality flick then this one is not for you.

Ginger's best performance yet!

but her fans might be upset to

end of the film. This was one of
her first horror flicks to credit
her as a scream queen.
Apparently the film was shot around 1987 which was John Carradine's last appearance before his death and seemed like it was shelved and then went to video stores 3 years later. This was probably Ginger's first legit acting gig.
Guns II. 1990 You will
only see a glimpse of Ginger in
this film as a hooker in a whore
house so look carefully. Emilio

whorehouse and Ginger dated his

energy with her performance in
this one which is mainly due to the poorly direction with Sloane himself since I often liked her work in other shows.

The fans may enjoy those
scenes with her in this one.

one too as a bisexual troubled
woman named Leslie who is
kidnapped by her lover to get her
away from her abusive husband.

film was well adored by fans of
Ginger's. Ginger said that this
film was her favourite role along
with her guest starring role in 'NYPD
Blue'. Karen Black also
has a special appearance and a
great dialogue with Ginger which
is the best scene of all in this
The Stranger . 1995 A stale action flick which tries to focus more on a steady and simple plot offering no skin which is a good thing as Ginger had the main supporting role playing a redneck named Sally Womack as she plays a nasty one and acts like a bully but yet I've seen her other work which was a bit more convincing than in this one.
Most of the acting is pretty mediocre which involves an outcast named Stranger (Kathy Long) whom is a tough and manly type of biker riding into a desert town to seek revenge on "Angel" (Andrew Divoff) and his ruthless gang of violent bikers. She tries to find her homeless little sister in which people torment her including the character Sally herself as well as the gang trying to make Stranger unwelcome in the town but falls in love with one of the locals there in which Sally gets jealous and tries to find some way on wooing him with her wicked charm.
The sheriff and deputies act like pussies in this film and there's a brief sex scene with brief nudity involving the Stranger but this is by no means a T&A film. More of a film to be taken seriously but it is a little lagging and uninspired as there needed to be something to make it more entertaining than what it was.
Quarter way through Ginger's character as well as the rest of the locals abandon the town since Angel and his gang arrives but Stranger battles these goons which looked highly entertaining when these moments start to happen.
The film has the odd bloody gunshots and the picture looks fairly decent for a direct-to-video low budgeter. Plus some nice peaceful moments involving Strange helping out her long lost sister too which has some nice focused discussions.
Breed: The Legend of Samhain. 2003 A film shot in Montreal,
Quebec, Canada about a legend of
a cult on a family of cannibals
that were reportedly extinct but
one survives down in the woods of
Ireland as a bunch of university
students from the US travel
Ginger has a supporting
role named Pandora who is an
Irish local and has only 3 scenes
in the film. Her first scene is a
good length as she introduces
herself to a couple of the
students along with a relative of
hers played by a Canadian local
named Simon Peacock who is a
disturbed woodman and afraid of
the legend there in the woods.
She does perform an Irish accent
but she sounds like an American
actress doing an accent but it
isn't overly bad.
Her next scene
is when Peacock's character runs
into tthe house to vomit after
seeing a decapitation and the
surviving cannibal kills him then
she has a brief battle with this
monster by doing karate kicks
etc. which looks amusing.

The film was exciting and very disturbing to watch and a total grindhouse type of flick since the story takes place in somewhere like 1977 as the environment totally looks that way. Although a sequel to a horror film this one is a crime flick and not a horror one at all although horror fans of the original will enjoy this one too.
31. 2016 Another Rob Zombie flick that she had a cameo in but it wasn't as effective as in 'Devil's Rejects' in which the story takes place in the 70's about a group of people that work for a carnival and are travelling to their next desitnation but are kidnapped by demented looking clowns that torture and kill these people as Ginger is in quarter way through the flick acting opposite of supporting actor Richard Brake as one of the demented killer Doom HEad in which he has sex with her doggystyle and later on have a brief dialogue as she acts turned off by him.
Ginger's character is Cherry Bomb but I don't recall her name being mentioned. She was a bit hard to notice in this one but the film looked grindhouse as I like that in a story although it didn't do much for me. However there's gore, canniballism as well as clowns with chainsaws as this looked like what you'd see in a funhouse as well as a nice soundtrack by 70's artists but of course Zombie often uses that type of music in his flicks since he's a retro type of filmmaker.
Received a very limited theatrical release as well as going to the odd film festival.
