back in 1996, I rented the flick
Bloodwings' but despised it
so much until rewatching it not
too long ago finding that it was
quite well done for what it was.
However, it was the first movie I
saw Linnea in, although it was
just a small part. But what
really drew my attention was
renting her in 'Return of
the Living Dead' on
Halloween night the year after.
She really stood out as a sleazy
punk named Trash. I started
renting her other horror flicks
afterwards that were made on a
lower budget like 'Creepozoids',
''Sorority Babes in the
'Silent Night Deadly
Night' and 'Night
of the Demons.' Although
I wasn't too wild over her other
horror movies (Except for 'Night
of the Demons' my
favourite Linnea horror flick)
they meant something to me. She
is a talented actress even if
she's in bad films that makes her
acting look bad and deserves to
be in better flicks. She is
starting to show her talent in
independent horror films today.
She has acted in lots of b-films
with other b-film scream queens
like with Brinke Stevens,
Michelle Bauer and Vancouver
actress Debbie Rochon. Linnea
totally rules the cheesy b-film
industry and is a top scream
queen for those types of films
Quigley was born on May 27, 1958
in Davenport Iowa. Her mother
was a housewife and her father a
Chiropractor and Psychiatrist. She grew up as a
tomboy and grew up loving
animals. Eventually she moved to
California in the late 70's where
the business for movies were
really happening and still are.
She was encouraged
to model and act by her friends.
She eventually decided to take
acting, singing, guitar and
modelling lessons instructed by
John Ashley, Estelle Harman,
Susan French, Leo McClutchy and
the John Powers Modelling Club.
She led a modelling career as
well as singing and playing
guitar in an all girl punk rock
band known as the Skirts, plus
she acted in TV commercials and
auditioned for more movie roles.
She started out by having minor
roles in films eventually leading
into a soft core porn flick
which led to her role in another
soft core X-rated comedy-musical
titled 'Fairy Tales'
playing the role of 'Sleeping
Beauty' towards the end
of the film. She was then
typecast in other exploited
flicks because of those films.
She made more appearances in films when the 70's were nearing it's end like 'Summer Camp' but then she won a part in her first horror film in the
obscure gore flick 'Don't
Go Near the Park' an awful movie.
However, she had
another supporting role in the
slasher flick in 1981 titled 'Graduation
Day' by playing the
loose teenager Dolores and it
became a cult classic. The film
was in the same tradition as 'Halloween'
, 'Friday the 13th'
and 'Prom Night'
about a high school track
runner, named Laura, suddenly
dies from a heart attack after
finishing a 30-second 100-meter
race, a killer wearing a
sweatsuit and a fencing mask
beings killing off her friends on
the school track team one by one.
The suspects include the track
coach Michaels, Laura's sister
Anne who arrives in town for the
funeral, the creepy school
principal Mr. Guglione, and
Laura's strange boyfriend Kevin.
That film also starred b-horror
film and western legend the late
Christopher George. This film
gave her alot of exposure and led
to her fame as a b-movie scream
queen but she still had a bit of
a ways to go.
also had a couple of cameos in
two Cheech & Chong comedy
films, and was cast in a couple
of action flicks called 'Young
Ernest Borgnine, Richard
Roundtree and Lynda Day George)
and 'Savage Streets'
(Starring former scream queen
then returned to low-budget
horror flicks by first travelling
to Utah and having a special
appearance in the slasher flick
that tried to carry on the
tradition like 'Halloween'
and 'My Bloody Valentine'
did titled 'Silent Night,
Deadly Night' which she
played a sleazy teenager named
Denise whom was one of the
killers victims on Christmas Eve
which her scene was very
memorable. However, the film
sparked alot of controversy
during it's theatrical run and it
struck gold by having a good
supporting role named Trash in
the zombie flick 'Return
of the Living Dead'
which she starred with many known
faces like Clu Gulagher, James
Karen, Don Calfa, Thom Matthews
and Miguel Nunez Jr. She had to
perform nude most of the time in
her film and dancing in a
graveyard as well as being
attacked by zombies and having
her body painted when she turned
into a zombie. The film was
written and directed by Dan
O'Bannon whom was famous for
writing many sci-fi flicks like 'Alien'.
This was Linnea's most successful
film and it was made on a good
budget. Eventually she was
interviewed in magazines and talk
shows then was blossomed into a
top scream queen.
was high in demand for low budget
horror flicks after her role as
Trash and many b-horror film
directors were looking for her
after the theatrical release of
this film. During the late 80's
she was busy acting in numerous
horror and non-horror films
although they were nowhere near
next horror flick was in 1987
as she played the role of Bianca
taking place after World War III
in 1999 while her and her troops
hide for shelter in a science lab
from acid rain but encounter a
beetle like creature that was
once human and it preys on them
as well as sprays it's poisonous
venom on some of them causing
them to have gruesome deaths.
Linnea gets killed towards the
end of the flick by having her
head chomped off. The film
received a quick theatrical
release in the fall and it was
written & directed by David
DeCoteau who used Linnea in
numerous of his other films that
usually went direct-to-video.
got more work in horror flicks
such as 'Sorority Babes
in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama',
Hookers' and one of her
last lead roles that went to
theatre's 'Night of the
Demons' which she the
role of Suzanne, playing the
whiny bimbo who goes to a closed
down Mortuary called the Hull
House hosted by her gothic friend
Angela on Halloween night with a
group of friends for a Halloween
party. During the party, Suzanne
and Angela both get possessed by
an evil demonic spirit that they
both awakened while doing a chant
with their friends. They both end
up killing their friends and turn
them into zombielike demons as
well. The film had good effects
and Linnea married special
effects wizard named Steve
Johnson two years after the
film's theatrical release but
their marriage eventually
the late 90's, Linnea starred in
many other independent films as alot of them were made on weaker budgets but some were decent like in 'Fatal
'The Monster Man',
Time I Kill', 'Corpses
Are Forever' (For which
she won an award at a festival
for 'Best Supporting Actress'), 'Unaware'
and numerous upcoming flicks. She
has appeared in nearly 100 low
budget films and is a household
name for that type of genre!
is also a member of the PETA
('People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals') as she
tries to find homes for them and
is against animal testing as well
as promoting animal rights. Also
she is a vegetarian.
attends many horror conventions

throughout the world and is one
of the most beloved b-film scream
queens. Today she resides in

May 27, 1958
Dorothy and W Heath Quigley
Status: Divorced, was
married to make up effects artist
Foods: Pasta and sweets
Something Physical and
Artists: Jan Brutt and
TV shows: Cops and The
Howard Stern Show
Movies: When a Stranger
Calls, B2 and Benji
Acting Gig: Toothpaste
Scene: Fairy Tales
Auditions 1978. An X-rated soft core porn dud comedy on people trying out for the film 'Fairy Tales' as they are required to take their clothes off or fornicate with others.
Plus we spot screen tests too with people discussing whether or not they will take off their clothes.
Also there's even full frontal male nudity to top it all off as well as someone masturbating with a fake skeleton hand.
Linnea has a small role in this film as she takes everything off here (Even exposing her crotch even which later on decided not to do full frontal when her career was starting up more-so) and then she is discovered that she's only 16 years of age and lied about it to the producers. Then is asked to leave. She claims that 'Fairy Tales' was the first film that she did nudity so maybe this was shot afterwards but released beforehand.
The film is pointless garbage and can be pleased by fans who likes Andy Warhol's very early flicks since there was a weak plot on his films exposing nudity and people getting it on with one another. This film can fool you as a porn flick but it isn't
Tales 1978. This was Linnea's first real
acting gig in a film. It was an
adult spoof comedy-musical based
on the character's of children's
stories like Snow White, Little
Bo Peep and Sleeping Beauty.
Linnea appears during the ending
of the flick topless as Sleeping
The story starts out as a Prince
(Don Sparks) looking for the lady
of his dreams to get him sexually
excited on his 21st Birthday
which is a painting on his wall
which happens to be Linnea's
character Sleeping Beauty.
This flick is very expolited and
was out in theatre's before the
70's were ending. The music was
very disco like.
This flick was one of the
reason's why Linnea was usually
typecast as a sexpot and was
extremely nervous and
uncomfortable when she found out
that she was going to be topless.
Go Near the Park 1979. Linnea's first
supporting role in a film. This
one was pretty bad and easily
forgettable. She plays an owner
of a bed and breakfast house to a
cult member named Gar (Played by
Crackers Phin) who who living
agelessly as a cannibal trying to
escape a tribal queen centuries
ago as the queen damned him and
another woman to an eternity of
old age when she discovers their
lurid exploits and in order to
stay young they must eat the guts
out of young people as they do
this for centuries till present
He falls in love with Linnea's
character but only to plan to
impregnate her with a baby girl
named Bondi as he plans something
deadly for his child when the
child turns 16.
Eventually Quigley's character
gets jealous of her daughter
Bondi and during her 16th
Birthday when Bondi recevies a
magiocal necklace from her father
Quigley leaves her husband and
Bondi becomes a runaway.
Linnea was only in this movie for
about the first 25 minutes of it
but on the opening credits her
name is revealed as an
introduction to her career in
films plus she can be heard on
the commentary of the recent DVD
There's also an outake of Linnea
being fully nude which she
probably requested as she refuses
to do full frontal nudity
Summer Camp 1979. Linnea was credited as Barbara Gold in this one for some strange reason as she breezes through this film and a good supporting role which is an awful sleazoid comedy flick that came out the same time 'Meatballs' did which it tried to have a similar theme and was credited as a ripoff but really it was a ripoff in itself.
It offers plenty of skin as Linnea plays a poor little rich girl snob named Pam as she acts stand offish towards others and has some brief scene's during the very beginning but so did the other cast members as the story didn't take itself seriopusly at all and the writer seemed to run out of an idea as to what to do here so instead it shows campers lusting after one another and there's various scene's where Linnea appears topless while changing in the girls cabin with the rest.
The story does get mildly amusing when the counsellors decided to have competing games with the boys against the girls as we see Linnea doing a swimming contest as when she tries to beat the guy she cheats by pulling his pants down which offers a bit of good humor there.
Another mildly entertaining piece is when everyone has a disco dance party and are half naked in their underwear or pajamas as then Linnea has a good scene when she goes to talk to the doctor at the camp and they get it on with one another and someone videotapes them and decides to humiliate them later on in the dance floor by bringing a TV and showing this to everyone.
There's disco songtracks and disco composing too since that was the style back then which sounds not too bad but the acting is over the top to mediocre. Linnea has done better in future films. She wasn't terrible though.
The film is very low budget as the screen quality doesn't look too good as it's hard to see people's clear faces and the story as well as the lack of budget looked good enough for Troma Team Entertainment to produce this piece. Back then no matter how bad a movie was it went to theatre's since there were no video rental stores around yet as this was one of them and a film that's very obscure which I could see why and probably didn't so well at the box office and was forgettable after it was shown there.
This was shot in the great outdoors in Malibu, California which doesn't look too forestry at all but mostly a deserted area like you see in that area which the makers should've found a better place to make it look like an actual camp site but with independent films that would be a bit pricey to travel especially for the lack of money they put into this one.
Another film with Linnea just starting out which she has done more memorable cult flicks than this but mind you she has done forgettable work later on as well with a bad budget an plot like 'Assault of the Party Nerds', 'Blood Nasty' and 'Murder Weapon.'
Stone Cold Dead 1979. Linnea has a couple lines and an effective scene even if it was a bit part. Her character name was Melody Stevens as she role is a hooker and is escorting a client from her house as he is heading home during the beginning of this film. She then takes a shower and a killer from outside shoots her through her window and she dies.
This leads to another slew of shootings as other hookers are victims as the killer shoots them in their window of a hotel or on the streets.
Eventually the police try to get involved in this case by going undercover but even they are being murdered.
A Sergeant named Sniper (Richard Crenna) risks his life to get to the bottom of the unsolved mystery bty finding out who is killing these prostitutes.
Linnea doesn't have alot of her face shown in her scene as her back is tuerned or when she is entering her own bathroom it just shows her body shot but eventually her face is revealed when she starts her shower.
This film was shot in Toronto, Ontario and was made on a very descent budget with lots of disco music too. A very good murder mystery and extremely suspenseful.
Psycho from Texas 1981.This flick involves a psychotic killer named Wheeler (Played by John King III) being hired to kidnap a businessman named William Phillips (Played by Herschel Mays) and hold him for ransom but then he escapes with Wheeler's partner chasing after him in the woods which looked suspenseful but sometimes things looked a little too corny as well.
Wheeler is disturbed by his childhood past by being abused by his fornicating mother and things around him remind his past which is the only thing that had a horror element here apart from being a killer.
Linnea comes in a quarter way through just when you think the film is almost done and is in it for about 4 minutes or so playing a sarcastic barmaid at a sleazy joint. Her Texan accent needed a bit of improvement
but yet does well when she sobs and acts scared when she is forced to take all her clothes off by Wheeler and forcing her to dance for him. She exposes her full nudity in this one too and probably the last time you will spot her like this.
Although the film was released in 1975, her scene's were shot a few years later on and the film was re-released in theatre's in 1981. It's an average grindhouse flick taking place in a county with lots of banjo and hamronica playing for the songtrack in the film.
Another obscure film that is hard to find nowadays and almost unheard of. Almost a ripoff to 'Last House on the Left'
Day 1981. One of
Linnea's most memorable horror
flick's. She plays a loose
teenage girl at a highschool
named Dolores who seduces a music
teacher in order to get a good
grade as well as hanging out with
her boyfriend and smoking weed
etc. She is questioned about the
murders going on there too.
Eventually, the killer tracks
Delores down while a rock band is
playing at the highschool
gymnasium and is strangled to
All the murders occured since a
highschool track runner dies from
a heart attack after finishing a
30-second 100-meter race and a
killer is wearing a fencing mask
and a sweatsuit. However, many
people there are suspects.
This was alot like a 'Prom
Night' type slasher but
slightly a little bit cheesier.
The flick also stars b-film
horror and spaghetti western
legend Christopher George along
with some other familiar faces
like E.J. Peaker, Michael Pataki,
Carmen Argenziano, Virgil Frye,
Bill Hulsey (of TV's Fame) and
TV's 'Wheel of Fortune'
hostess Vanna White.
The flick is in the same slasher
tradition like 'Halloween',
'Friday the 13th',
'My Bloody Valentine'
and of course 'Prom Night.'

only has a 2 minute cameo in this
comedy flick playing a blondie

The plotline in this one is that

rest of the hosts have a VERY

We follow them around Amsterdam,
at their hotel, (still) smokin'
joints and doing shows.
Get Crazy 1983. Linnea is
also uncredited in this one but has a few brief scene's in it. The story is very slapstick and off the wall comedy on a bunch of people preparing a concert for New Years Eve while a bad guy named Colin Beverly (Ed Begley Jr.) and his assistants Mark and Marv (Both played by former washed up teen idols Bobby Sherman and Fabian) are planning to sabotage it all that's operated by Max Wolfe (Allen Garfield) who ends up getting sick.
There's sex, drugs and rock n roll with wild performances by punk rock music with the audience doing body surfing and spoofing those types of situations which looked pretty funny.
There's many adult situations too. It's a very silly story such as someone kicking a dog in the air but this was harnless fun when you spot this not looking cruel at all as well as a punk rock singer named Reggie Wanker (Malcolm McDowell) realising that his cock is talking to him.
Linnea comes into the story as one of his groupies as her first scene is coming out of a limo looking glammed up as well as others walking out at a time. Plus there's wild partying on a plane with her topless that we birefly see her do. Plus there's a good close up shot with her coming on strong towards one of the band members while taking a break on a couch. Then she's topless again with her back turned while getting hot and horny towards Reggie as well as a bunch of other nude women by going into a room with him.
Cast also featured some other rock superstars such as Lou Reed and Lee Ving. A totally fun party flick too with energetic performances.
Black Room 1983. Linnea had appeared close to the
ending in this awful flick. She
plays a character named Milly who
is hired by one of the lead
actors Jason (Steven Knight) to
babysit his kids and to bring
them up to his work place later.
The place is a renting house in
the Hollywood Hills but the
employers are killing the people
and sucking the blood out of them
for thieir use to live.
Jason doesn't realise these
owners evil doings until he
catches them when Milly is caught
and half of her blood is sucked
out of her.
A gross flick that was shot the
same year 'Graduation Day'
was released but was shelved for
2 years and went direct-to-video in the UK and a year later in the USA. This must've been the very first made for video release ever during it's time period.
Linnea looked great in her Farrah
Fawcett/Goldie Hawn hairstyle
along with her biker shorts and

1983. Linnea has a
supporting role named Ginger in
this film who is the girlfriend
to one of the guys that just got
into the fraternity.
Well this story starts as a bunch
of highschool graduates in Malibu
High that got into the fraternity
and introduce to people Ginger
who is covered in nude sheets
with a blanket then they take the
sheets off and she runs off.
Next scene she is working at the
library there and her and her
boyfriend act obscene there while
hje asks her for a certain book.
Then a fraternity party happens
at night ansd she is seen briefly
hanging out while the others are
pledges and have to do some dares
in order to get in.
Suddenly during that very night ,
the head fraternity's younger
sister is brutally raped and
killed by a vicious gang so the
fun stops when the sorority
brothers try to track the gang
down with army weapons and never
speak to their girlfriends any
Linnea's character Ginger goes
into their room and spots the
weapons in their closet.
Quite a cheesy plot but a good
film made on a descent budget.
Linnea wasn't one of the main
character's in this action-comedy
flick so her name isn't shown on
the opening credits.
There were many big names in the
film however like Ernest
Borgnine, Lynda Day George and
There were also family members
from well known actors that
weren't top names but still got
work like Dick Van Patten's son
Jimmy, June Lockhart's daughter
Anne and Chuck Norris' son Mike
co-starring in his first film.
Linnea has a good supporting role
in this one. She plays opposite
to the lead character which is
former scream queen Linda Blair
as her younger deaf mute sister
Heather. She hangs out with her
sister and her fun loving group
called the Satins.
Well the Satins decide to pull a
nasty trick on a vicious gang
called the Scars by driving away
with their car and then stuffing
garbage in it. This makes their
leader angry so they decide to go
to their school and rape Linnea's
character when she is alone
waiting for her sister after
school. She is put in a coma and
her sister seeks revenge on them.
A very similar plotline to
'Young Warriors' except
that Linnea had a bigger role in
it and her name was credited in
the opening along with the other
Linnea claimed that Linda Blair's
role was originally going to be
played by Cherrie Currie from the
former girl punk rock band the
Runaways but was fired and she
that she and others were going to
be fired too.
Linnea was excited to be working
with Linda Blair as she was an
icon at the time and sometimes
helps her out with the PETA.
Linnea said that the rape scene
was tough for her as the people
who played the Scars ripped her
blouse off and it caused her
shoulder to get pretty torn up by
She also talked the director out
of a couple of stuff for the rape
scene and agreed with her. She
found the director, Danny
Steinman, a great guy to work
with. He let people suggest
She also liked the director of
photography Steve Posey.
Unfortunately, she said that the
film ran out of money and cheques
bounced and it took things a few
months to get things squared
The Screen Actors Guild was
supposed to have given her $5,000
for waiting but that never
happened although everyone else
The film had an excellent
soundtrack by 80's pop artists
like you'd hear in 'Fast
Times at Ridgemont High'
or 'D.C. Cab' by
John Farnham, 3 Speed, Michael
Bradley and Real Life.
I was desperately looking for the
soundtrack album but finally
found the record of it on e-bay
for alot of money. I cherish the
record and consider it my
favourite soundtrack album. This
was also my favourite Linnea
Night, Deadly Night 1984.
Linnea had a special
appearance in this one. She plays
a teenager named Denise who tries
to seduce her boyfriend in a recroom near a pool table in which they turn on a rock radio station to drown out Christmas carolers outside.
Then her sister is about to check up on them and she tries to prevent her from doing this telling her that Santa won't bring her presents unless she's asleep Then Denise
a jingling sound from outside
thinking it's her cat wanting to
She is topless and opens the door
while so and lets her cat in.
Also a killer dressed in a Santa
suit comes barging in and picks
up Denise and impales her on two
antlers from a deers head that is
placed in her living room wall. Her death scene was most memorable in this slasher flick compared to any of the other one's in which she was well credited for and my favourite scene too. It was very disturbing like alot of the content used in this film that sparked controversy with parents wanting to ban this film from being released in theatre's after spotting the trailer on TV.
Of course this killer experiences
another killer dressed in a Santa
suit who killed his parents when
he was 5 and was sent to an

Linnea admitted that it was
freezing cold when she was doing
most of her scenes while opening
the outside door and was topless
with just shorts on. She said she
hated doing that scene. She also
said the trainer was holding back
the cat when they were doing
takes for her calling the cat and
found it very cruel to the cat.
She had to hold her breath while
the make up people stuck the

of the Living Dead 1985. Yessss! This was the flick that
made Linnea a full time scream
queen and her biggest budget to
date. Not only that, she received
alot of publicity in magazines
and some talk shows.
It was a spoof on George A.
Romero's 'Living Dead' films of
zombies returning from the grave
due to an acid rain fall and are
hungry for human brains.
Linnea has a good supporting role
named Trash (She dyed her hair
pink/red and cut it short in the
film as well as shaved her eye
brows since that's what the
director wanted or she would've
been replaced) who is a sleazy
punk who decides to break into a
graveyard with her friends.
Her most memorable scene was when
she took off her clothes and
danced in the graveyard. When she
talked about the film she
remembered feeling uncomfortable
with having white body make-up
that was water resistant on her
when she became a zombie as she
was still nude.
She remembered alot of other
weird stuff like being buried in
mud. She also said she wasn't the
original choice for the film as
they had another actress to play
the role six months before she
was cast but the actress was

films, she loved this one the
Many people didn't like
director/writer Dan O'Bannon but
Linnea claimed she enjoyed
working with him as she tries to
behave professionally with
everyone she works with.
She stood out the most in her supporting role and was quite an attention grabber as many of you will probably agree with me. She certainly does well by having a sleazy type of attitude in her role showing off alot of great energy into what she did. Plus really showed terrific energy standing on top of a gravestone while stripping it off and doing a great dance too. Her hairstyle and make up made her look very different than in any other film along with the rest of the cast which is a compliment proving that she can portray a real character.
Basically the story centers around two bumbling employees working at a morturary named Frank (Played by James Karen) and Freddy (Played by Thom Matthews) who try to find a way to kill a goofy yellow skinned zombie but cutting it up and then burning it in a crematory oven. But then it's ashes causes acid rain to fall in where Quigley's role Trash and her troublemaking teenage friends are partying at a graveyard where they broke into and have to find shelter in their vehicle till it let's up. This causes the dead bodies in the graveyard to awaken and are hungry for human brains and it's a moment of survival for everyone. Trash was the first victim and then gets resurrected into a zombie.
Both Frank and Freddy were badly caused by some toxic gas beforehand awakening another zombie named Tarman. The two become brain eating zombies as well, making the rest of the survivors unsafe too.
Linnea had the moves for everything with this one and this was noted to be her only supporting performance in a mainstream low budget flick.
Treasure of the Moon Goddess 1987. Linnea was
taking a break from films for a while as she was doing work in soft core porn flicks with mainly Michelle Bauer but she teamed up with Don Calfa from 'Return of the Living Dead' to star with him in this comedy-action flick that seemed to spoof 'Indiana Jones'. It was made on a grindhouse low budget with low production values and a bit corny and full of slapstick without it being trashy or cheesy. In fact a film that Linnea could be proud of and even non fans of hers can watch it and not thibnk it's an other typical kookie T&A flick with a thin plot as there's not really skin in it at all except for brief nudity for the near beginning when a model changes her clothing and the agent that Don Calfa plays as Harold Grand whom is a perverted one and a dimwitted fool who spies on the model undressing and getting aroused but this is only brief and the rest of the time he goes on a corny journey and getting himself into trouble.
Linnea's first appearance here is singing an 80's type of pop song at a lounge as you could tell she was lipsynching and later on goes on an adventure with Harold as she is destined to get famous as an entertainer. Her acting skills seem okay but at times a bit stiff when she gets aggressive or throwing obscene insults at her enemies. Otherwise she was a natural ham in other areas and can make you laugh.
They escpae in the water towards an island after their boat explodes from thugs who try to destory it as the effects looked okay as well as them suddenly trapped by natives and then Linnea's character is mistaken as the goddess and is dressed up as them while they are about to plan a cult sacrifice.
However they end up making peace with these natives and free from the thugs while finding a special type of small statue which shows some power as well as interesting special effects on them trying to escape the island where there's booby traps and passageways.
The film apparently went to theare's but the flick was considered obscure so it may have been a small release. It almost looked like a some sort of TV episode of 'Moonlighting'. The story was mediocre and a film that could've promised Linnea a better acting career than trashy one's that offered lots of skin but sadly it didn't. Oh well. The film offered a nice sense of humor regardless.

director David DeCoteau and he
convinced her to do this film
which led more film work into his
She felt great since most actors
get lots of rejections and was
honoured that David wanted her
for his film.
The film was shot in a warehouse
for most of the scenes.
Linnea said that the people
involved with the project will
would always have a special place
for her in her heart and was
family to her.
Also she enjoyed working with her
co-star Ken Abraham alot and says
he has a nice sense of humour.
She didn't need to wear much
make-up which she said was nice
for her and enjoyed her costume
that she wore.
Seemed to do a passable job by playing a tough type of soldier named Bianca in the film as well as really knowing on getting into a good conversation too in certain ends. Plus hardcore fans may remember her nude shower scene that she did with her co-star Ken Abraham that played her boyfriend named Butch.
She commented that she was
shocked that actress Kim McKamy
who was in the film moved onto
pornography a year later as
during the time shooting this one
she refused to be nude.
Of course the movie was a
futuristic horror/sci-fi flick
that David tried to borrow from
'Alien' and old cheesy
monster films of a pack of people
trying to hide from shelter in a
science lab during an acid rain
fall after a nucklear war from
World War III.
They all encounter a giant beetle
like creature who kills and
sprays poisonous venom on them. Plus they are terrorised by giant eating rats.
Although the film received a
quick theatrical release in the
fall of 1987 it did better as a
rental in video stores.
This was one of DeCoteau's most
successful flicks as most of his
other films were terribly
exploited with a thinner plot
which went direct-to-video.
Babes in the Slimeball
By the same makers of 'Nightmare
Sisters' comes this
flick with Linnea and her scream
queen friends Brinke and Michelle
at it again.
But this time Linnea plays a
different type of role as a punk
named Spider. Linnea said that
this was her second flick with
This was a spoof on
horror flicks but was also
categorised as a horror film.
The plot surrounds two sorority
pledges wanting to join the
sorority sisters but has to steal
a trophy in a mall at a bowling
alley. They are there with some
frat nerds and accidentally
release a demonic Imp while
stealing the trophy. The Imp
grants them wishes each only to
be fake and possesses the
sorority sisters to kill the
nerds and the pledges. Linnea is
there robbing the place but turns
out to be a hero in the end with
the head nerd Calvin (Andras
Linnea says she loves playing a
tough girl in flicks so it was
fun for her. However, most of the
scenes were shot at night which
she didn't like cause she was a
Her make up was rushed and Linnea
felt that she looked like a
Also, the film company had to
wait for the bowlers to finish
bowling before they shot the
scenes in the bowling alley.
Some of the girls had problems
with their love life so it made
things a little difficult.
Robin Stille who was cast as the
head sorority sister Babs had a
drinking problem and was out n
out drunk and ended up hurting
Linnea in a fight scene as well
as getting hurt by another
actress in another fight scene
which Linnea got a black eye so
twice she was hurt which wasn't
fun. Both scenes were the last
night of filming.
Linnea also paid for her own room
in a hotel as she likes peace and
9 years after the shooting of
this film Robin couldn't handle
her alcoholism and took her own
life which was a year before I
first spotted her in 'The
Slumber Party Massacre'
which also had a supporting role
According to DeCoteau this film
cost $250,000 to make.
Sisters 1988. Another David DeCoteau flick but
this time it's a spoof on those
exploited scream queen exorcist
type flicks. A very slapstick comedy-horror that doesn't take itself seriously at all.
Linnea gets to star with her
scream queen friends Brinke
Stevens and Michelle Bauer in
this one. The film isn't terrific
but funny and a real party flick.
Linnea Quigley performs a song
from her band the Skirts in one
The film was about a group of
college nerds getting together as
they are being tormented by the
popular one's and none of them
can get a date so they have a
seance and the three scream
queens turn into beautiful
llusting women but however they
are sex starved vamps and kills
the people they try to seduce.
Will the male nerds be able to
This flick was made for video as
the plot and budget were very low
with plenty of nudity.
If you look closely, a fraternity
nerd has a theatre poster of 'Creepozoids'
hung in his room.
The film was written in six days
and took three whole days to
Chainsaw Hookers 1988.
This was a Fred Olen Ray
flick which was the only time
Linnea ever worked with him and
found it a great experience. She
couldn't tell if he was saying
something serious or not.
She was excited to find out that
she was going to be working with
Gunnar Hansen since she was a fan
of him as Leatherface in the 1974
cult classic 'Texas
Well Linnea played a chainsaw
prostitute named Samantha who
runs away from the chainsaw cult
as they were hacking up their
clients with what else???
Gunnar Hansen plays the hookers
pimp of course known as the
Heather helps a detective named
Jack Chandler (Played by Fred
Olen Ray favourite, the cheezy
b-film scream king, Jay
Richardson) to track down the
hookers' pimp during a cult
Linnea found Gunnar super nice to
work with. In one scene of the
film Linnea had her body painted
with designs as the artists who
painted her body thought it would
take two or three hours but it
took eight (Like working a full
time shift for one day).
Linnea called up her then fiance
make up artist Steve Johnson to
do the rest of the designs on her
naked body. Then she had to do
the virgin dance with a chainsaw
which scared her cause she was
worried that she'd get hurt with
the chainsaw in action.
Some of the chainsaws had chains
and some didn't but she had two
large chainsaw in each hand and
was woozy from the smoke of the
chainsaw. After her scenes were
done around 1 am with all the
effects of paint etc. on her body
her car battery was dead when she
started it up to go home.
This flick also starred her
scream queen friend Michelle
Bauer who was also famous for
acting in Fred Olen Ray's films
like Jay was. She played a
chainsaw prostitute named
Mercedes and was famous for her
role in this flick which made her
one of the top exploited b-film
scream queens along with Linnea
and Brinke Stevens.
The story explained on here is
better than the movie trust me as
it's terrible and hokey plus was
made on a lower budget than 'TCM'
itself with bad dubbing.
If you're expecting this to be
like the 'TCM'
ion the city streets, think
again. Supposedly this film did
earn a limited theatrical release
but only in Los Angeles which is
a big city. Yet, the film was
admired by fans of Fred Olen
Ray's work in horror films but
I rented this flick along with 'Creepozoids'
but like 'Creepozoids'
a bit better.
Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The
Dream Master 1988.
Linnea only has a bit part in
this film. Her fiance Steve was
doing the make up effects on this
one so maybe the director asked
him to bring her into this film.
Well of course the story is about
Freddy Krueger a child murderer
who murder lots of kids on Elm
Street and then was klilled by
the kids' parents then is an evil
spirit who kills kids in their
dreams and then takes their
He's back for the fourth time and
someone tries to put a stop to
him with her boyfriend.
She reflects a mirror on Freddy
in her dream to put an end to him
and souls come out of Freddy
Linnea is one of them as it shows
a nude body of her trying to get
out of his chest. Linnea was
basically a featured extra in
this film and was credited mainly
because she was married to Steve.
Of the Demons
1988. Linnea's fiance
Steve also did make up for this
one. This was the set where
Linnea first met Steve actually
as the other films were released
beforehand but this one took
longer to finish cause of the
special effects etc.
They didn't date for 5 months but
how they met was bizarre she
claimed as they needed to see her
breasts for a scene she puts make
up on them and sticks a lipstick
tube into her nipple breast
(Which was a famous scene for her
in the film) so Steve and his
crew had to use prosthetic make
up for that and other stuff to
put on her breasts.
Linnea has one of the main roles
named Suzanne a whiny party girl
who hangs out with her gothic
friend Angela (Mimi Kinkade) that
goes to this closed down Mortuary
with their friends called the
Hull House. They have a Halloween
party there hosted by Angela.
They find a mirror and start a
chant but the chant is broken as
one of their friends freak out
seeing a demon in the mirror. The
demon is set free and possesses
Linnea's character Suzanne. Then
Suzanne possesses Angela but
french kissing her.
The two of them go on a killing
spree turning their victims into
demonic zombies like them.
Linnea is great at being funny
with her one liners. When I saw
the box cover of this film 10
years ago it said "Angela is
having a party. Freddy and Jason
are too scared to come." I
was wondering if it was a part 4
to 'Sleepaway Camp'
but looked at the back of the box
and realised it was a different
During Halloween night in 1998 I
rented it for the first time
since I was getting into Linnea's
films and loved it.
Also, I spotted Jill Terashita
from 'SC3' as
Frannie in the flick.
The film kinda reminded me alot
of other popular horror flicks
like 'Hell Night'
and sequels on 'A
Nightmare On Elm Street'.
I found this one to be my
favourite Linnea Quigley horror
flick. Linnea also said she saw
this film at a drive-in and had a
hard time watching her scene when
she was bending down at a grocery
store with her big party dress on
while her fellow actress Mimi was

Havins from 'Sorority

Linnea worked with Rick Sloane
for the first time and was nice
to everyone on set. Rick does it

very stale. Still, he had a
professional and patient attitude

actors and went to the wardrobe
department to make sure the
colours matched for each of the
Linnea said that 'Vice
Academy' was very long
hours and tiring. One of the
locations was by her house which
was the training area. She became
good friends with Jayne Hamill

Academy instructor Miss
Devonshire who became a
successful TV writer and
There was a bad incident however
when she was starring with a
former porn turned b-film actress
named Ginger Lynn Allen whom
Linnea said would remain nameless
and disliked her. Linnea said
that Ginger was showing up late,
hung over, nasty and demanding.
This created alot of tension on
set of the film.
Linnea and Ginger's characters
were enemies in the film so
Linnea could very much relate to
Linnea got to work with Ken
Abraham from 'Creepozoids'
again which she enjoyed.
Linnea and Ginger reprised their
roles in the sequel which Linnea
said was alot easier to shoot and
were not long hours.
Linnea said one of the actors who
played a tough guy was
accidentally hit by an actress
and was on the ground in pain but
no one seemed to care too much.
The films were very low budget.
Close to Z-grade in fact with
some boring scenes.
However, this film could easily
be categorised as an independent
I loved the opening songtrack to
the film which was heavy metal
American Rampage 1989. There's some David DeCoteau type of flicks that were avoidable made on a really bad made-for-video budget but this one was so bad it's good. Not the most serious action flick but campy fun if you're in the mood for it as there's alot of violent gun fighting with criminals and mobsters galore about a female Los Angeles cop relentlessly tries to bring down a powerful drug cartel kingpin, and losing police partner after partner in the process amid the frequent shootouts and her social life, or lack of.
The film had some decent acting surprisingly as well as the odd romantic moments dealing with the two detectives involved as well as tons of focused nudity.
Linnea only has about a 3 minute role in this one as a paris girl named Elizabeth MacIntosh whom is staying at a hotel. She makes a phone call in the hotel and I was convinced her voice was over dubbed by another voice over actress. Then she takes off her clothes and has her famous shower scene and poses normally like she has in other films doing this as the camera focuses on her rubbing herself all over. Meanwhile this happens we spot one of the killers in the film getting ready to shoot her. Suddenly she comes out of the shower to dry herself and put some lotion on her and then is shot to death. Her character seemed to be a drawing card to the mafia which sometimes I had a hard reason wondering as to how she was involved into the story. Oh well. The film budget was fairly okay for a low budgeter and kind of a grindhouse look.
Written by the same fellow who did 'Murder Weapon' but made a real improvment on this one.
It also said that it starred already washed up heartthrob Troy Donahue but he only has a supporting role in it since most of these actors remained as virutal unknowns and were trying to market this obscure flick.
Still I found this movie to be trashily entertaining and low budget cheesy action fans might find this film amusing.
Alien 1989. Linnea
has a supporting role in this
film with Ginger in her fourth
film directed by David DeCoteau.
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 towards
Linnea and Ginger are Wesley's
lustful images that go to each
event he's at. Linnea and Ginger
are both topless in one scene of
the film after Judy Landers'
character does an experiment with
him so that should please all of
Also the film has a cameo by
Linnea's scream queen friend
Michelle Bauer as well as her
co-star in 'Vice Academy'
Although this was noted to be a
bad film and probably never made
it to theatre's I liked this film
the best out of all of DeCoteau's
There's also a scene where there
is Jacoby and his film family
having breakfast and there's a
cereal box of 'Creepozoids'
plus some of the family's members
watching the movie on TV.
Plus Jacoby's younger brother
Bobby plays his younger brother
in the film as well.
1989. Linnea worked with 'Night
of the Demons' horror
film director Kevin Tenney for
the second time as well as acting
with Hal Havins for the third
Kevin even has an acting part in
this flick as Devon Lauder.
The story is about evil
supernatural forces in a house
controlled by a demonic warlock.
Linnea plays a beautiful reporter
named Ginger Kolowski.
In the middle of the film Ginger
takes her clothes off fully nude
to take a shower. The water stops
and the head of the shower stabs
Ginger's neck and kills her.
Some good effects like in most of
Tenney's films and more serious
than 'Night of the
Demons' but nowhere as

While Linnea was doing 'Vice

this sleazy comedy-horror flick

former TV star Lyle Waggoner who
only had a special appearance in
The story was of course about two
daughters of mobsters get out of
the sanitarium after having
killed a boyfriend in the shower,
supposedly cured and on the right
track. They hold a party and
invite all their old boyfriends,
making all of them think there is
still hope for a relationship.
Then the boyfriends start
disappearing one by one.
Linnea also co-produced it with
David DeCoteau as Linnea always
wanted to produce to do more than
act. She really wanted a
challenge so this was the film
she worked on.
Linnea got a house in Toluca Lake
with a great price. However,
Linnea said the lady who lived
there was crazy. She tried to
call and reconfirm stuff but she
always misunderstood. Linnea
asked her to heat up the pool so
Karen Russell's character can
dive in, swim and do her scenes
which Linnea paid her to do and
called her three times to remind
her to do so but she never did.
The pool was cold and there were
other uncomfortable things. David
DeCoteau had enough of this woman
and changed locations without
telling her and Linnea had to
deal with her again.
Also, there was an actress doing
a topless scene and everyone
waited outside until the scene
and Linnea went into the bedroom
and told the A.D. "Everyone
Out." There was even one man
had his own video camera ready.
David was always cracking up when
Linnea had to perform a serious
There was even a scene where
someone was watching a pay
channel on TV and David
DeCoteau's spoof 'Nightmare
Sisters' was showing and
the scene was when Linnea,
Michelle and Brinke's characters
were all taking a bath together.
The film was a terrible low grade
slasher flick that offered
terrible dialogue, bad acting,
terrible gore effects (There's a
scene where a hand is torn
through a guys neck and another
where someone's head is smashed
by a hammer that looks like glass
smashing) and plenty of skin.
The opening scene in the film
looks very similar to another
terrible slasher flick (No where
near as bad as this) titled 'The
At least Linnea was giving this
film a shot. Another typical

As if 'Murder Weapon'
wasn't bad enough. This year
seems to be a rotten career for
Linnea as she was in one bad

as a horror flick in which I had
doubts reviewing it in my movie
section which almost seemed like
a plain black comedy and an awful
The story involves an incident
gone bad by a group of jewel
thieves killing an innocent man
named Roy Flowers (Played by Todd
McCammon) who is awakened from
the dead by a spirit of a killer
named Blade who possesses his
body and returns to the poor
family of Roy's whom got alot of
money from his life insurance and
are not sure if they want him

returning from their landlord
Barry Hefna (Played by former
50's hearthrob Troy Donahue whom
was accepting roles in awful made
for video flicks during this time
period since he wasn't being

But hopwever Blade has deadly
plans up his sleeve with this
family and Linnea comes into the
picture as his girlfriend Wanda
Dance who is a stripper and in
her first appearance she is
topless putting on one of her
outfits before doing a strip
tease for her gig and tries to
contact Blade through aa crystal
type ball which looked tacky on
how she was doing this.
She of course visits Blade
possessing Roy's body and gets
topless wearing a cowboy hat and
boots in his bedroom trying to
get kinky which seems to do most
of the talking for her
In the end she tries to help the
family out before she gets killed

Ther film was barely released
onto video and you would be lucky
to find it which it took me 4

The Girl I Want 1990. Linnea also produced this one as well as co-starring in it as a punk trashy girl named Teri whom is friends with Karen Russell's character Lisa as they try to help a brainy and nerdy girl named Amy (Played by Elizabeth Kaitan) by turning her into like them as a tough type bimbo in order to get a football star to like her but found out that they liked each other for whom they were in the first place.
Linnea seemed to have fun playing this role as a tough talker with attitude as well as her acting sharp as well as flirtatious by partying out with other guys as the fun starts with them wtching a horror film which is of course 'Murder Weapon' showing the memorable death scene of the sledge hammer slamming on someone's head. This film was by the same makers and some of the same cast. It can be a fun flick at times but equally bad as well. Especially some flashback and imagination sequences involving certain character's with the bright background like in that flick which looked overly annoying to watch. This went right to video in Belgium and straight to cable for USA Up All Night in the US a year later as we don't reveal any skin like it was going to suggest many times as the plot looked sleazy at times and was missing just that.
Cast also features Burt Ward who has in jokes from his character Robin in the 1960's TV spoof 'Batman'.
Yet there is a good message in this story to show people that the real one's will accept you for whom you are. The film was badly shot on and giving it a grindhouse look to it too.
Quigley's Horror Workout 1990.
This was a real workout
video by Linnea along with some
comedy scenes with zombies and
She improvised in it with her
actresses because she didn't get
a location permit.
For her workout film they found a
condo in Tohuegenga Canyon to
double as an abandoned sanitarium
so she went up at 5 in the
morning to build a graveyard and
then brought in thirteen zombies.
Linnea asked 'Movietime'
Tonight' to visit the
set and about 2 in the afternoon
they arrived. When they were
about to shoot the promo a bunch
of fire trucks came up the road
right after them.
No one knew that they did fire
drills about once a month when
they found them and the fire
marshall kicked them out. Linnea
was scared that the shows were
going to use the footage of the
marshall busting them and
stalling for time while the crew
set up again. Linnea convinced
them to reshoot at her parents
place where they finished the
The video was very weak video
made style but very entertaining
as it shows real workout
exercises as well as showing some
clips from her acting career.
Some of the cast who played the
zombies working out in this video
have worked with Linnea before.
These actors were Jeff Bowser who
played Zoomer in 'Virgin
High' and Kathi O'Brecht
who played Rhonda in 'Sorority
Babes in the Slimeball
Linnea only had a cameo in this
one but she was credited with
some other actors during the
This film stars our own beloved
Luke Skywalker Mark Hamill as Max
Reed, a young man discovers a
mechanical device that merges
with his own body, turning him
into a cyborg superhero. When
strange creatures start
appearing, trying to take the
device back, he begins to uncover
a secret plot to genetically
engineer terrifying monsters. One
of the monsters accidentally
lands on a set of a cheesy horror
monster film starring Linnea
Quigley so Linnea plays herself
in this flick. She lets out a
long and loud scream and is
ticked when she realises it's a
total screw up.
This flick is a sci-fi, action
and comedy in one and a very well
done one too. Unfortuantely the 'Guyver'
never made it to theatres but it
was based on the popular
superhero animated show.
High 1991. By
the same makers as 'Assault
of the Party Nerds' but
nowhere near as bad but still
pretty bad nonetheless.
A girl gets in trouble with her
parents for allegedly fooling
around with her boyfriend, and
they send her to a catholic
girls' high school.
Linnea Quigley plays a sleazy and
stuck up girl named Kathleen as
her character is similar to
Ginger Lynn Allen's character in
who is "in charge," and
makes demands on the other girls
because she has unofficial
connections with the faculty.
Kathleeen fornicates with the
main security guard to as well
who is also a scum bag.
Cast also features Burt Ward who
was famous for his role Robin in
the 60's cult TV series spoof 'Batman'.
There's also a scene where
there's a movie poster of 'Assault
of the Party Nerds'
hanging on a wall.
Blood 1992. Linnea
has another cameo in this film
with some other b-film horror
celebrities like Tom Savini,
Forrest J. Ackerman, Dario

present husband Steve Johnson at
This is not a b-film and was a
box office smash in theatre's
which is a shame Linnea didn't
get a bigger role than what she
The film is a horror spoof on
vampires of a young woman named
Marie, a female vampire with a
conscience, decides to restrict
her feeding requirements to the
violent Pittsburgh gangsters who
are at large in the city.
Marie's victims become vampires
themselves if she fails to
permanently immobilise them, so
when this happens, the gangsters
become a serious problem which
she has to fix.
There is a vampire in a hospital
room who burns to death due to
the ray of the sun shining on him
as his body falls apart and
Linnea plays a nurse who runs in
to see what the problem is and
the vampire's arm falls off then
she screams holding the arm and

fuel from thie spaceship and
lands on a beach then they all
enter a bikini contest to win a
contest so they can help an
earthling pay for his beachhouse
being repaired as he is being
threatened with condemnation. If
this sounds lame it is.
Linnea plays an irritable agent
for the modellers named Sally but
her acting doesn't meet up to her
expectations when I saw her
perform in this. She however does
have a nice romantic scene
towards the end of the film.
The film also features relatives
of big time stars like Joe
Estevez, Don Swayze, Joey
Travolta and Jaquollyne Stallone.
One of the actresses who plays
two of the three alien women is
porn star Sarah Bellomo and
Playboy model Tamara Landry.
II: Bloodwings 1994.
This was the first film I spotted
Linnea in when I rented it after
Halloween in 1996. I didn't
remember the film too well only
that I hated it with a passion
but then I re-watched it after
re-watching the first film in
which I enjoyed it alot better
the second time.
Linnea only had a cameo type of
special appearance in this one
along with other b-film horror
actors like Kane Hodder and R.A.
The story centered around a
retarded boy that was murdered by
some bullies and then two decades
later some teenagers resurrect a
demon from the boy's grave and
the boy turns into Pumpkinhead.
Then he goes on a killing spree.
Linnea plays a sleazy type of
character exposing her breasts in
her first appearnace iof the film
in a shabby old warehouse with a
burly man played by R.A.
Mihailoff and then later on she
puts on her robe to get something
out of her car while Pumpkinhead
snaps this man in half and throws
him out side and we do get a good
screaming and wdie eyed
performance by Linnea in which
she's famous for apart from her
nudity and sex scene's in low
budget horrors like this one.
Linnea has another scene taking
place in the morning at the
warehouse with her spooked out of
her mind and the leads played by
Andrew Robinson and Gloria Hendry
trying to calm her down. Linnea
seemed to know her part quite
well even if her scene's
alltogether was under 5 minutes
The film also co-stars Lilyan
Chauvin as a witch whom also
acted with Quigley in 'Silent
Night Deadly Night' as
Jack-O 1995. This
film looked so interesting when I
saw the cover of the box but when
I watched it I was disappointed
as it was below average and very
Z-grade with bad acting.
Linnea's first appearance is nude
in a shower. She plays a
babysitter named Carolyn Miller
on Halloween night who protects a
demonic killer who's name is Mr.
Jack the Pumpkin Man who was
originally a wizard centuries ago
was put to death.
The wizard happens to be an
ancestor of the child Carolyn is
babysitting named Sean.
An ok film to watch for the
laughs as it's hokey horror but
that's all it is.
Almost looks like a terrible
spoof on 'Pumpkinhead'.
Features many special appearances
with actors that Linnea has
worked with in the past like
Brinke Stevens and Dawn
There was also appearances by
horror icons John Carradine and
Cameron Mitchell before their
The ending credits were cool as
it showed the scenes of the
actors who starred in it just
like watching the opening of a TV
show when it says starring so and
so with the person.
of the Rats 1995.
A made for cable flick that took
place in 19th Century France, a
young Bram Stoker is captured by
a man-hating, all-female cult of
thong bikini wearers.
Aided by flesh-eating rats, the
warrior women raid the lairs of
evil men and punish them.
Our hero must decide between his
wish to escape the dangerous cult
and his love for one of its
Linnea just had a supporting
riole as one of the Rat Women.
Her lines were usually chants
with the rest of the women in it.
It shows scenes of her sword
fighting and other eventslike
that. The show kind of reminded
me a horror version of a Greek
I mark this one to be Linnea's
best performance and should've
won a best supporting actress
award for her role in it. Linnea
travelled to Italy to act in it
as she appears halfway through
the film as she tries to help out
a lead character who's a music
video director from New York
named Alex Ritt (Played by Rick
Gianasi) that has travelled to
Italy to make a music video there
but a bunch of slaughterings have
occurred with the people who are
working with him to find out the
truth behind a group of
slaughterings as well as the
victims haunting him.
She has a few good scenes and
then gets killed or so we may
think but there's a surprise
ending for Alex in the end. This
was not a small role by any means
as her fans will be happy and
will really enjoy her performance
Donald Pleasance also has a
supporting role in this film as
it was his last one before he
passed away which he did in the
middle of the shoot. There was a
one liner joke of his character
Loomis in 'Halloween'.
This Italian horror flick was
apparently a success at film
festivals nationwide which is not
Linnea's ex-husband Steve also
did the effects for this one.
Linnea was seen brefly in this
film of a man who has just been
released from prison vows to
start a new life, but is put to
the test when an old cellmate
Cast features former porn queen
Traci Lords who moved onto
mainstream acting as she plays a
b-film star named Shonda and is
showing some people her cheesy
horror flick she was in which
shows her and Linnea Quigley who
plays Gretchen on the TV screen
with another actress too.
Cast also features rock icon Joan
Jett who was famous for her hit
song "I Love Rock N'
Roll." This film was in good
taste and had a strong cast.
Death Mask 1998. This film was done by the same makers as 'Jack-O' but they've really improved on this one. It's still made on quite a low budget and looking like a made-for-cable type of cheapo but yet the story is alot better.
However the acting is a bit rough as Linnea portrays a tomboy named Angel Wilson as she's quite rough and a bit over the top in her performance especially when she shows off her aggressions during the beginning of her performance while standing up for a the lead character Wilbur Johnson (Played by James best who also wrote this screenplay and can't shake off his accent like he did as Roscoe in the 'Dukes of Hazzard') but there's other times she's not too bad like having her charming attitude with him as well as being romantic which shows off not too shabbily.
It's about the character Wilbur who has a scarred face since he was a child due to his evil and abusive father and since then works at a carnival as a freakshow performer and tormented by many there including his boss but Angel helps him out by going to a swamp where a witch grants him a magical mask but owes her something valuable in return as this mask causes people to get scared since it has a demonic type of force and causing them to have accidental deaths.
I quite enjoyed this film even if some may disagree but the makers tried the best they could due to a lack of a budget and Linnea is rough alot in her performance but shows it off nicely in others especially during the end of the flick with her emotional attitude.
I watched this on youtube as about 10 minutes of it was cut out due to nudity was my guess since I hear she performed a nude scene and maybe some of the other performers too. Yet it had a good storyline. This film is a hard one to find.
Mari Cookie and the Killer Tarantula in 8 Legs to Love You 1998. Linnea went to Spain to be in this film as she has a good supporting role in it named Tere in which she seemed to do okay by having a bubbly type of personality in it as well as playing a mother to a daughter who is caught in the killer tarantula's spell of lust but this is not a horror film by any means. It's a plain sleazy comedy porn dud with the odd horror situations only to disappoint you that it doesn't pull through that way. Full of nasty nudity but suprisingly Linnea keeps her clothes on but there's a near moment where she almsot reveals some skin.
Also who stars with her in this is her scream queen friend Michelle Bauer as the story about a Tarantula with an almost carttonish effect on woman's head had kidnapped two people fully naked in her web and transforms into a person working at a strip joint. The story is so out of whack that you don't know what is happening much. Linnea tried to add some spunk into what she does especially while trying to have a conversation but that doesn't cut it and there's longing scene's on women lusting after one another. This is a lesbain sex flick but there's an odd moment on a woman fornicating with a guy. The picture quality is pretty good but that's it. A film you'd want to avoid for sure.
Animals 1999. Instead of playing these bimbo roles she now takes on playing a remarried family woman named Dana Miles-Evans who travels with her new husband and daughters to camp out in their trailer in which she adds a good charm to her role as well as trying her best to get into her role as a reasonable type of mother too with her discussions towards her onscreen daughters and adjusting to their stepfather.
She also wears a sexy type of top and tight daisy duker type shorts. They run into a demented family of sick killers who hold them for hostage. Of course they catch her character nude while she has sex with her husband and is fully nude folks. Plus there's peer pressuring moments to manipulate her into doing what they want her to do in order to keep her husband alive as this was supposed to look disturbing as well as one of them raping her doggy style which she knew hoe to scream intensely but when she cries in fear it is a bit off.
She manages to do the heroic thing by trying to escape which is also supposed to be an attention grabber only to have her luck running out. Sound familiar to a 1972 Wes Craven cult classic we all remembered watching starring David Hess??? Yes this is a ripoff to 'Last House on the Left' but this one is a non horror although that one was barely a horror to beging with. It's a badly made crime-thriller almost dull in every way with tons of bad acting as well as a news reporter looking down on a piece of paper while doing a broadcast. The story was also confusing and uneven at first, badly written and made on a terrible camcorder camera with bad audio too.
It does get mildly amusing when the vengeful daughter seeks revenge on these maniacs with her traps and weapons on her but that's still nothing to brag about. Watching a porn flick is better than this piece of junk and I'm sure Linnea wasn't proud of this clunker and did it to pay her bills like most working actor or actress does when they're struggling for gigs during a rough time of their life.
Moving Targets 1999. Linnea travels to New York in the snowy winter time for this decent crime flick which was made on a decent budget with a good plot in which she is creadited as one of the main characters but she is only seen in it a quarter way through with two scene's as she's in it for like less than 5 minutes or so.
However alot of the actors did a solid job but some of them weren't big names which you'd think they were especially an adult tomboy detective Zoe Crowe (Played wonderfully by Sue Ball as her timing is right with her no nonsense attitude as well as her brawling with the male criminals which can be a pleaser for people who enjoy these types of action films. Also there's campy dialogues with her and others during a stakeout which adds light humor to the story too. The film is about a pair of cops are following a lawyer who has information on a mobster. He's killed and his wife has to help the cops catch the bad guy.
Burt Ward had a nice supporting role in the film as the chief of the police headquarters with a dark secret of his own as he plays this well and it's nice to see him doing a decent film.
Linnea has an affective role playing a district attorney and looked decent in her part instead of those lustful types which is a good pointer for her as a character actress in which she does this nicely in a courtroom when she tries to show a floppy disk on evidence and it was switched showing some comic cartoons as well as showing her being frusterated later on and discussing this. We hear her voice briefly later on with a phone discussion and then the story gets juicy when Zoe and her sidekick are rushing to the courtroom to prove the case and Linnea's character assures the judge that they will arrive when the opionated judge is about to close the case as this looked adventureous and keeping you in suspense if they will arrive in time.
It proves that small roles can be affective and hers proves that and a nice feather in her cap to be a convincingly serious actress instead of working in those typical trashy b-movies offering skin as this film doesn't offer any of that at all and given a PG-13 rating. The movie is pretty good.
it to the Bone 1999. I
remember seeing an unofficial
site of Linnea online and
announced that she will play an
overdosed hooker in this upcoming
film. Well when it came to

millenium, I went to see it since
I wanted to see Linnea on the big
screen for the first time. I had
a feeling that it was a bit part

2003 A student film by
Chris Watson and not a great one
with lots of bad acting and
directing and made on a camcorder
budget but has lots of bloody
gore effects. The film was shown
in a few underground venues
before being released onto DVD by
Troma Team a few years later. It
can be fun to watch if you're in
the mood for it but if not you
need to avoid it. At first you
wonder if this is a comedy-horror
like 'Shaun of the Dead'
but instead it's just a plain
zany comedy trying to use 'South
Park' humor in a bad way
but using horror elements like
the gore and flesh eating
It all starts out when a lady
named Laura Reynolds (Brinke
Stevens) goes to a radio station
to talk about Lucifer, otherwise
Lord Zombie (William Smith)
wanting to take over the world
with zombies while two redneck
cops who stir trouble for others
are encountering this madness and
tries to help the matters out.
Linnea Quigley only has a cameo
in the film as a school principal
named Russo in which she appears
after the opening credits and has
a dialogue scene with child actor
Kai Wandry as a younger character
to the lead actor of the film
named Jeff in which she lectures
him in her school office aboput
telling tall tales of zombies
taking over the world and needing
help. She only has less than 2
minutes with her eppaeance in all
of this and her performance seems
a bit wooden and unconvincing as
a propaincial and wears goofy
looking glasses too which doesn't
help matters at all.
There are a few exceptions in the
film too like Brinke, Robert
Z'Dar, Jeff Dylan Graham and a
cameo by Edwin Neal.
Are Forever 2003.
Ah yesss! This was one of
Linnea's best performances! I
liked her best in 'Return
of the Living Dead' but
this film was her second best
performance I found. She has a
good supporting role playing a
dead person who appears as a
spirit to Jose Prendes' character
Malcolm Grant (Who also produced,
wrote and directed the flick).
Linnea's character's name is
Ellie Kroeger as she has
encountered him when she was also
alive during black & white
flashback scenes. Linnea is both
witty and serious throughout the
film. Jose is a big fan of George
A. Romero's 'Living Dead' flicks
as well as James Bond films too.
So he combined both of them into
this film. He had a very limited
budget on this one as the outdoor
sets weren't closed so you could
see traffic driving by when there
were zombies taking over the
world as well the audio wasn't
terrific which turned some
viewers who saw this away. But it
was a great story and well acted.
Most of the actors had to work
for free but Jose was very
fortunate to have some familiar
faces like Linnea as well as
others like Richard Lynch,
Linnea's scream queen friend
Brinke Stevens, Vancouver, scream
queen Debbie Rochon, Don Calfa,
Conrad Brooks and Felissa Rose.
This film showed their true
talents as some of them were in
really bad movies and it was hard
to show their true talents. This
is what the plot is all about, a young Government
secret agent named Malcolm Grant
(Jose Prendes) awakens with
amnesia in a post-apocalyptic
world in permanent darkness and
overrun by the living dead and
it's also dark all through the
hours as the gates of hell have
blown open. To find answers to
find answers to his hidden in his
concious he teams up with an army
led by a man named General Morton
(Richard Lynch) and to stop the
zombies and finding the source to
do so. However, Malcolm realises
that Morton is the devil
controlling the zombies and his
wife Marguerite (Debbie Rochon)
is also working with Morton and
is trying to kill Malcolm.
Malcolm has a little help with a
spirit corpse named Elli Kroger
(Linnea Quigley) whom he has
encountered a long time ago when
she was alive and helps him
survive being eaten alive by the
Sexbomb 2003. This
film was categorised as a
comedy/horror but really it's
just a plain dark comedy and a
bad one too. The film was done in
1989 but was shelved away and
released onto DVD in 2003.
The character Linnea Quigley
plays is a sexpot scream queen
actress working in trashy horror
flicks in which her character is
dedicated to her career in
b-horror flicks abnd has the lead
supporting role in the film as a
nice girl with an outgoing
attitude named Phoebe Love who
appears tiopless in her first
scene in which she is even in the
beginning of the film as someone
on set performing in a horror
flick against a wielding maniac
screaming for her life which
looked phony but again it was set
out to be that way.
Basically the story centers
around a dweeby film writer named
Lou Lurrod (Played by Stuart
Benton) who gets fired by his
producer named King Faraday
(Played by Robert Quarry) but
King's lustful wife Candy (Played
by Delia Sheppard in her first
leading role) who wants her
husband dead and fools around
with Lou and trying to manipulate
on helping her kill him even if
he's hesitant on doing so.
Linnea comes in during alot of
scene's while working on set or
even hanging out with the
character Lou by flirting with
him and acting very charming too
in which she does a good job in
Most of the acting however is
quite bad as well as the writing
which is amateurish along with
alot of nudity and lustful
moments mainly involving Delia
Sheppard who always seems to take
off her top in any movie she
acted in which does more the
talking for her since I've always
found her to be a terrible
The flick looks like that it was
made on a similar budget as 'Vice
Academy' which offers
similar tongue in cheek as well
as other similarities in another
low budget comedy called 'The
Gumshoe Kid', in which
both films came out during the
same year as this one was
supposed to have but those one's
were more worth watching than
this one which is why I can
understand why it was shelved.
Even if this film was a triibute
to Linnea herself there's better
films out there to watch with her
Yet she comments that it was a
cute film and the cast and crew
were really nice people. Plus her
manager at the time Anthony Mora
was the producer of the flick. To
top it off Anthony had her on the
front of Premiere Magazine and
tons of shows too. She noted also
that she screamed on every TV
show and the people involved are
special people whom, she
treasures very much.
The Rockville Slayer 2004. A very well done flick.
Quite a few suspenseful scene's with a mysterious killer doing away some teenagers getting it on in their vehicle and the head Sheriff Duncan (Played by Joe Estevez) trying to find the missing pieces on who the killer could be since there was an escapee from a mental institution and he is an easy prey as a suspect to these murderous crimes.
Linnea has a smaller role in this one as she's seen in flashback memories revolving around a mental hospital as well as a father revealing his dark secret to his son on who his real mother is which Linnea is revealed nude during a sex scene but this moment was necessary instead of a film offering nothing but skin since she is the secret of being this boy's Mom.
She appears later on near the end of the movie when the mystery ends up being resovled and has her scene's with Robert Z'Dar with him being forceful and abusive towards her while she acts disturbed and freaking out and having an upsetting and emotional attitude which she seemed to do fairly well by being this way.
Her role as Mary Burns seemed to be the true key role to the story here as when we first watch the film we all wonder as to when she will suddenly appear in the film as it takes a while.
Made ona decent budget for an independent flick as well as good scenery but sometimes the audio is off. Yet well written with a good cast as this can give Linnea good credit for being in a serious project and not a lousy one.
Frost, 2004 Linnea just has two small scene's in this one playing the role of a barmaid named Sandra but yet is one of the main targets to this plot as it involves a murder case by a killer wearing black and a ski mask as it leads to missing clues on a murder of an officers wife that has some deep dark secrets which leads to affairs, hit and run and vengeful matters.
Some of this was shot in Germany and was overdubbed by German voice over's for the American actors including Linnea herself. It was hard to tell her talents in this one due to that matter.
She has a discussion with Lieutenant Braque (Played by Tony Travis) in his office as their discussions are uplifting. Then it jumps to the next scene as she was a barmaid just finishing her hours and ready to make love with her boyfriend and yes she takes it all off proving that she will still do nudity throughout all the years in her acting career. Real artsy shots on her getting it on and then suddenly the killer does her in by stbbing a knife through her neck which was a clever way for a quick killing.
Her character name is mentioned to her friends leading to a big case so it was effective enough in the story and a couple times a flashback sequence of her fornicating is revealed.
The film is a bit exploited but not overly and made on quite a decent budget for an indie flick and a fairly solid plot too. At first it seems like just a crime-thriller but it is a horror/slasher flick with solid dark moments used into the story and well shot too.
Vampitheatre 2009. A film that's a horror and music video type of genre in which the musicians happen to be vampire's who feast on human blood wherever they travel to do a concert, interview or shooting a music video and an FBI agent tries to track them down for these killings. Linnea has a special appearance in this one as the Queen of the vampire's but not a part of the band which is a shame.
She has ghoulish make-up on her but sadly her voice is overdubbed by a man with a deep voice which is a bummer since we don't spot much of her acting skills yet comes across as fairly ghostly and even shows her wicked expressions as well as her fangs about to attack which can make you jump out of your seat in one spot of the flick.
Although her appearance was supposed to be memorable it sadly isn't at all. The film can be a fun one to watch if you're in the mood for it but there are many lacking spots used in it with lots of skin too. Linnea keeps her clothes on as she usually does in the recent stuff that she does.
She travelled to Georgia to do this one as my guess is the filmmakers would hope that this one would sell cause of her being in it. The film quality is pretty good for an independent flick and there's the odd good dialogues with the other actors too so it isn't wasteless junk at all.
Some of the music is pretty good too but some of it was annoying too having techno type playing which I never got into.
Night of the Demons 2009. This one was a remake to the 1988 film in which Linnea had a good supporting role in as she has a cameo in this one. She wears the same outfit too like in the original as a joke and tribute to the first. She is in it for less than a minute for the first bit when kids go trick or treating in her rowdy nieghborhood and she answers the door and then bends down to get some candy like she did in the beginning of her scene in the original at a corner store to grab the employees attention while her friend Angela was shoplifting. She seemed to show some nice spunk in her brief role and definetely knew on how to pay a tribute to this remake.
The story was alot different than in the original which seems to be necessary since there's no point in watching the same old thing over again but yet it doesn't have the same effective chemistry like in the original either. It looked like one of thoe typical unorginal horror films we see today showing nothing too spectacular and not enough cheesy good entertainment like back in the 80's when these kinds of flicks were exciting to watch.
The film earned a limited theatrical release in the UK during close to summer's end in 2009 and then coming to DVD two weeks before Halloween in 2010 in North America. Plus it had a familiar cast involved too.
Spring Break Massacre 2009. A flick done by Michael Hoffman who brought you the trashy no budgeted horror anthologies like 'Scary Tales' along with it's sequel. He tries to carry on the T&A slasher tradition like 'Slumber Party Massacre' with this one but that was by far more entertaining than this piece of shit. None of it was believeable. Linnea comes into the film the first half of it as she plays a deputy at a police station in which she tries to be humoress with her sarcasm in the flick but this falls flat big time. She acts opposite of Reggie Bannister (Yes Ice cream man from the 'Phantasm' films) who plays the head sheriff as they have corny conversations which looked unconvincing along with certain aggressive dialogues that fell flat too.
She gets killed off by the killer as her screaming was so wooden and low on energy in which she has done far better in her lung power in past horror films. I can see why she hasn't done much since the 80's and 90's when she was in better trashy low budget films. If she continues to perform like this she's in trouble.
Basically the story is about a bunch of sorority students deciding to throw a spring break slumber party at their resort by a lake owned by one of the students named Heahter Kilbourne (Played by Sarah Minnic) and her father Mr. Kilbourne (Played by John Schumski) but a convicted killer named Stanley Peterson (Played by Curtis Taylor) has escaped from prison and is possibly killing these sorority co-ed's. The story sounds more fun than the film itself since it's very amateurish.
Linnea's character with Reggie's tries to find the missing pieces of this killer but that's nothing too exciting either.
There's alot of skin in the film but Linnea keeps her top on. A direct-to-DVD dud that was barely released.
