Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Linnea Quigley, the shy girl from Davenport, Iowa, who went from working at Jack LaLanne's Health Spa, to a career in film, is one of the best-known "Scream Queens" from the 1980s.  Not content with stopping at the 80s, she has continued to the present day with over 140 film credits.

A cult favorite, Quigley has appeared in Silent Night, Deadly Night, Return of the Living Dead, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4:  The Dream Warriors, Night of the Demons (both the 1998 film and the 2009 remake), and Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, along with other memorable or totally forgettable films.

Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout may be the strangest film she has done.  Quigley stars as herself in this combination exercise video, clip show, and horror flick.  Fans who cannot get enough of Quigley will cheer. (Others may get too much of the actress, if you know what I mean.)

Be warned:  This is a fairly sexist film.  There's a lot of girls in skimpy costumes and a few scenes with Ms. Quigley in less than that.  The cleverness of turning B-movie horror film cliches into exercises may make up for that.  (Or not.)

Decide for yourself:
