Back in the ’80s and early-’90s, Linnea Quigley ruled the horror scream queen scene. When she wasn’t starring in films like Night of the Demons or Return of the Living Dead, she was doing oddball efforts like Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout. Some of us still own this on VHS, however, it’s making its way to DVD for the first time. It’s up for pre-sale now with copies shipping April 11th.
Directed by Kenneth J. Hall and starring Quigley, the workout tape was originally released in 1990 and features special effects from Cleve Hall (TV’s “Monster Man”). A campy, gory parody of the workout videos of the ’80s, the film was created to capitalize on Quigley’s explosive popularity and rabid fan base. In it, Quigley teaches a bevy of big-haired, lingerie-clad beauties the proper way to tone and stretch, while a masked killer stalks them one by one. She also takes time out to show an army of out-of-shape, flesh-eating zombies the best ways to keep fit.
A first run Limited Edition of 1,000 units will come with a numbered 5×7 photo signed by Linnea Quigley and Kenneth J. Hall. This package includes a digital re-mastering of the original uncut version of the film, presented with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, as well as the following special features:
