Jason Paul Collum's film Screaming in High Heels- The Rise and Fall of the Scream Queen Era is a tantalizing documentary of three legendary ladies who ruled the horror world with boobs, blood, and
tons of cheesy B movies! Weekends of mine would be dominated by staying up all night on Friday and Saturday nights to watch these very bad, yet so good horror movies they all starred in.
You learn a lot about each individual and you get a glimpse of their real selves behind all that B movie madness. Remember, many people worshiped these ladies from afar, since there weren't many if any major Horror Conventions during that time. I was fortunate enough to meet my favorite of the three Linnea Quigley at Monster Mania one year, she was sweet and chatted me up- she didn't act like a dive or rush you off. My favorite films with her in it would have to be Night of the Demons, Return of the Living Dead and Savage Streets with the pea soup spewer herself Linda Blair.
Brinke Stevens hails from San Diego California and was in school for the study of dolphin communication before being booted for unwarranted research involving how the Navy's use of them for undersea weapons research. Brinke did receive her masters degree in marine biology from Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla, California back in 1977 Brinke was accidentally discovered and has over 100 movies under her belt including: The Slumber Party Massacre, Nightmare Sisters, Roots of Evil, and Necromancy.
The blond cutie Linnea Quigley left Davenport Iowa and went on to become one of the top Scream Queens of all time. Did you know before she got into acting she played a mean guitar and was in rock videos for Motorhead, Revolting Cocks, and The Ramones? Some of her film titles include: Creepozoids, Silent Night, Deadly Night, and Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers with Bauer.
Michelle Bauer was Penthouse Pet of the Month in July of 1981. Michelle falls into the whole scream screen category a tad lower on the three tiered scream Queen totem pole since she seems to mainly known for her soft/hard porn films more. Such titles include Lust for Frankenstein, Tender flesh, Rope Burns, Heavy Petting Detectives, Sexual Witchcraft, The Naked Monster, Café Flesh, and Naked Detectives.
