Cult Queens Of Cinematic Pleasure Then and Now!!

LYNN LOWRY

“I Drink Your Blood”, “Sugar Cookies”, “Cat People”, “The Crazies”…Classic films that command a huge following thanks to the alluring Lynn Lowry. She had very different roles in each yet ultimately we were mesmerized every time she took to the screen. More so since she also headlined the soft-core film “Score” that involves lesbians, partner switching and even simulated sex scenes. On top of being a former Playboy Bunny and Cover Girl, she has been one of the most captivating figures in cult cinema. Kudos to the Cult Fiction Drive-In Convention for having Lynn as a Special Guest. Active in movies once more, a series of exciting projects such as “The Super” and “Torture Chamber” will have us swooning..:)

CAMILLE KEATON

Granted 1978′s “I Spit On Your Grave” was notorious for depicting the degradation of an innocent women but underneath its violently twisted tone lies the age-old story of good triumphing over evil. The leading lady that cause a generation to shudder with her unnerving, raw performance is the legendary Camille Keaton. I saw one of her recent interviews at a horror convention and boy is she as luscious as ever in a revealing low-cut dress. We rejoice seeing winsome beauty Camille return to form in the indie thriller “Sella Turcica” after a long hiatus. A trailblazer of exploitation cinema, Camille Keaton has undeniably been pivotal in shaping the genre and it’s fitting she’s been anointed Grindhouse Goddess.

DEE WALLACE

The popularity of “The Hills Have Eyes and “The Howling” have to be attributed to the dramatic performances of Dee Wallace. “The Howling” together with “An American Werewolf In London” and “Ginger Snaps” for me put werewolves on the map. Equal parts fun and frightening, the entertaining shock value from these 3 films never gets old. Watching a Hot Blonde Scream Queen such as Dee Wallace is essential and she’s proven her worth as a versatile actress throughout her illustrious career. While she’s been going the drama route playing an adulterous wife in “Bedrooms”, horror will always be in her heart as she’s set to star in indie thriller “Sebastian”. Unequivocally, she’s one accomplished entertainer.

DEBORAH VAN VALKEBURGH

I might have been only a child when “The Warriors” was released in 1979 but till today it is regarded as a sensation. Constantly raved about, its controversial gang themes propelled “The Warriors” to Cult Classic status and amazingly had a PS2 beat-up action adventure game created in its honor! As you know, Deborah Van Valkenburgh was a scene stealer as Mercy, the prostitute who gets cosy with Swan, the leader of The Warriors. Her supermodel good-looks were most eye-catching. It’s fantastic to see her on TV, having been on “Law & Order: LA” and “The Event”. Still as striking as ever with a most gorgeous smile, Deborah’s engaging onscreen presence will never be forgotten..:)

SIFF 2011 Hottie Special: German Vixen Jennifer Ulrich

Come May 19th 2011, Seattle International Film Festival will be the epicenter of visual pleasure that will be colorfully stimulating throughout. Certainly we have to pay tribute to the actresses who in varying capacities are ensuring we fans have a mind-blowing good time. Not since “Fright Night” have Vampires been this audaciously seductive and the leading ladies of “We Are The Night” or “Wir sind die Nacht” (in German) should be commended for bringing Sexy Back! JENNIFER ULRICH for one is a sensation as Charlotte, a silent era movie star with looks to kill and a ruthless appetite for blood. JENNIFER has a priceless scene in “We Are The Night” where she pokers her eye with a lighted cigarette…there’s none of the emo posturing or existential thoughts of being the undead….It’s as true to the immoral vampiric nature as you can get amidst a very addictive Eurodance soundscape complete with throbbing beats. Being a Vamp is all about excess and I love how JENNIFER portrays her sultry Charlotte character with both bloodlust abandon and dignified poise. It’s terrific to see a strong female-fronted movie with women driving the story and doing the majority of the onscreen kills. I urge you to watch German Sirens JENNIFER ULRICH, Karoline Herfurth, Nina Hoss & Anna Fischer in one of the most gorily fun movies of the year! I’m half expecting a Hollywood remake to be churned out pretty soon.

It really doesn’t matter where you live in the world or what language you’re conversant with, JENNIFER like so many of her European peers have brilliantly intimated the enthralling cinematic experience we are so fond of. She’s been lauded once before for her intense performance as a teen who rebels against the ideals of a school cult in “The Wave”. Good-natured and with a heady desirability, it would be fascinating to see JENNIFER crossover to the American Market and achieve the kind of popularity relished by German talents say for example Franka Potente. JENNIFER brings a compelling freshness on the film scene and well on her way to success.
