From the press release:
Three girls living in Los Angeles, CA, in the 1980s found cult fame when they “accidentally” transitioned from models to B-movie actresses, coinciding with the major direct-to-video horror film boom of the era. Known as “The Terrifying Trio”, Linnea Quigley “The Return of the Living Dead”, Brinke Stevens “The Slumber Party Massacre” and Michelle Bauer “The Tomb”, headlined upwards of ten films per year, fending off men in rubber monster suits, pubescent teenage boys, and deadly showers.
They joined together in campy cult films like “Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama” (1988) and “Nightmare of Sisters” (1987). They traveled all over the world, met President Reagan, and built mini-empires of trading cards, comic books, and model kits. Then it all came crashing down. This documentary remembers these actresses – and their most common collaborators – on how smart they were to play stupid.
Featuring iconic directors of the time including David DeCoteau (Creepozoids), Richard Gabai (Nightmare Sisters), Fred Olen Ray (The Tomb), “Screaming in High Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era” takes viewers through the prime of the “Trio” as they rule the screen with their sex appeal and vocal cords, and ultimately, into their very real demise from the genre that made them blood covered stars.

But yes, Wes is lovely.
SCREAMING QUEENS GET YOU NOTHING!
Posted @thejajac. Don’t care if I win I’m just trying to impress Linnea.
Is Linnea on Twitter? We should get her involved in this conversation.
Thanks for having the giveaway! Here’s the link to my tweet for the giveaway: https://twitter.com/Haunted_Lair/status/245232305969430528
My favorite scream queen? Well it’s tough to pick just one. Because I
have a few that rank high on my list. But I’m going really old school, and choosing the late great hammer horror scream queen, Ingrid Pitt!
She was TRULY a babe back in the day!
FANTASTIC CHOICE! She’s definitely one of my favorites as well.
Always been rather partial to Danielle Harris.
Still waiting on your top scream queens post.
Still waiting on your top scream queens
I recently made my top “Final Girls” list, but I’m not sure if it’ll be posted on this website or a different one. I’ll keep you updated!

My favorite scream queen is Caroline Munro.
Hammer should have gotten into eugenics in order to secure a dominant race of females.
@3SHorror So hard to pick just one…Gonna go with Michelle Bauer though.
I still want that dvd. In case you were wondering.
Re: Scream Queen – I wouldn’t call her a scream queen, but I’ve always been partial to Edwige Fenech.
I just saw Edward Furlong last week! He’s fat now! Also, Bobby Budnick was there and NO ONE wanted his autograph.
ha! I always get him & the ginger in Airborne confused.
By “the ginger in Airborne” do you mean Seth Green? Because I saw HIM three weeks ago. You can learn all about it in an upcoming episode of SEND MORE COPS!
I tweeted: @RogersMichL Brinke Stevens is my favorite.
Thanks for stopping by Michelle!
I do. Omg I can’t believe you’re pimping your pcast. Have you no shame?
Now. Do you mean that you saw HIM (the shitty band) or that you saw Seth Green 3 wks ago?
Nm. I already don’t care.
* insert emoticon that conveys “playfulness without being flirtatious” *
I saw Seth Green doing guest vox for HIM, obviously.
My favorite is probably Debbie Rochon, who doesn’t seem to be part of this doc, but Brinke is pretty rockin’ as well.
It’s definitely not an all-encompassing doc, just highlighting those three, but I’d love to see one that includes all of them!
RT’ing now! Pick me, pick me!
Make sure to include your Twitter username so I know who you are!
I’m concerned that you’re not going to pick the person who’s most *deserving* of this dvd.
Have I introduced you to my friend George Washington? *ahem*
I shall give NOTHING to the Pope, other than my innocence, but that was stolen from me when I was small.
Alright, everybody. I see 9 comments that have posted their Twitter, so I’m going to the random number generator, setting a minimum of 1 and the maximum of 9, and the result it gives me is…
4! The 4th person to enter a comment was…
Mr. Darko! Congratulations! Thanks everyone for playing, keep your eyes on my Twitter for more giveaways.
