There is no doubt that this pint size Iowa princess is deserving of the title of "scream queen," having starred in such notorious horror and cult films as Night of the Demons (1988), Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers (1988), Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) (a film that scared the living bejesus out of me when I was a kid) and Savage Streets (1984). But most remember her for her seductive, graveyard dance in Return of the Living Dead (1985).
She also did a horror workout tape back in 1990 that included nudity, zombies and legwarmers, but that's probably best left forgotten. Oh wait, I'm still thinking of Return of the Living Dead. I don't think Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout had legwarmers.
So appropriately, she is the covergirl for "Scream Queens Illustrated" magazine in the Fall 1993 issue. She was promoting a parody of Madonna's "Sex" book which Linnea had titled "Skin." I guess that Madonna book was pretty damn popular at the time.
I've never seen Linnea's book, but I'm guessing it has monsters licking and biting her boobs because that's what happens in the photos from this magazine. ...And if I had read the text from those photos before writing that last sentence, I would know that that is exactly the case. They are sample pictures from her "Skin" book. I got distracted by boobs!
