Scream Queen Linnea Quigley is no stranger to shock and splatter. The 1980s horror icon, inducted into Fangoria Magazine’s “Hall of Fame,” has been possessed, returned from the dead, pierced on antlers by a killer Santa and was even trapped inside Freddy Krueger’s chest. Coming to DVD from rapidheart.com this Tuesday, January 14, 2013 are three of the actresses long-lost cult classic terror-fests, NIGHTMARE SISTERS, DEADLY EMBRACE, and the gruesome MURDER WEAPON.
NIGHTMARE SISTERS – The camp horror classic that became one of USA’s UP ALL NIGHT most popular broadcasts returns after a decade in moratorium! Three innocent college girls (Quigley, Brinke Stevens of THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE and Michelle Bauer of HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS) become sorority succubus sisters when possessed by an evil spirit. It’s up to their geeky boyfriends to turn the sudden sexpots with killer bites back into the dorkalicious babes they know and love. Richard Gabai (VIRGIN HIGH) and Michael Sonye (FRIDAY THE 13TH) also star.
DEADLY EMBRACE – When a desperate housewife hires a hunky college guy (Ken Abraham, CREEPOZOIDS) to repair her home, she quickly attempts to seduce him. However, when his sprite young girlfriend (Quigley) shows up for a long, hot weekend of sex, jealousy and obsession consume the housewife, spiraling into a spree of kidnap, torture and murder. Also featuring an all-star cast of cult favorites Ruth Collins (PSYCHOS IN LOVE), Jan-Michael Vincent (AIRWOLF), Ty Randolph (BATMAN RETURNS), Michelle Bauer (PUPPET MASTER III), and Jack Carter (ALLIGATOR).
MURDER WEAPON – Two criminally insane mob daughters (Quigley and DICK TRACY’s Karen Russell), fresh out of the asylum, gather their ex-boyfriends claiming a desire for reconciliation. In truth, the temptresses have a need to avenge their broken hearts and satisfy an unending bloodlust. Also features Lyle Waggoner (THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW) and Eric Freeman (SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, PART 2). Showing one of cinema’s most gruesome sledgehammer-to-the-head murders, this long-sought after title is available for the first time on DVD.
Loaded with sex and violence, all three films are featured in the hit documentary SCREAMING IN HIGH HEELS, currently airing on NBCUniversal’s Chiller TV, generating interest with horror fans old and new. The LINNEA QUIGLEY GRINDHOUSE TRIPLE FEATURE, available through amazon.com and other major retailers, is 240 minutes of unbridled fun and fear, including new commentary tracks on each film by Quigley and director David DeCoteau.
