Horror Hottie of the Month - August 2013

This month we pay a salute to a woman who has been in many horror films, mainly sequels, but none the less left her mark on the genre, Caroline Williams.  Caroline has appeared in some great horror films over the years including Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Stepfather II, and more recently a small role in Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 and also Hatchet III.  I could probably go on naming all of her roles in film but I really don't want to be writing all day :)

The first film I saw her in was probably the one I like the most, which was Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 were she played the role of Stretch.  She was a Dj at a rock n roll radio station who heard a death on the air from Leatherface and his chainsaw.  TCM2 is really one of my favs from that franchise and her role really just adds to it.  I had a chance to meet Caroline at a convention back in 2010 and she really is a very pleasant person, very friendly and personable to her fans.  In fact right now I am watching the copy of Stepfather 2 autographed by her that I purchased at her table.

Horror Hottie of the Month - July 2013

This month's selection was tough, I had a couple in mind but when it all came down to it Danielle Panabaker won.  In the past 4 years or so Danielle has racked up quite the resume and has made herself known in the horror genre very well.  She has starred in Friday the 13th (2009), The Crazies (2010), Piranha 3DD, and most recently Girls Against Boys.  She does well in any role she is in, and even though I really did not care for Girls Against Boys I still think she did a stand out job.

I have to say my favorite movie she was in was the Friday the 13th remake.  The movie itself was actually pretty good.  I am not a real big fan of remakes but this one at least deserved a passing grade.  She really did not have much of a supporting cast to speak of except for maybe Jason played by Derek Mears.  I have to admit I have not even watched The Crazies yet.  I think I'll make that one next on my list

Horror Hottie of the Month - June 2013

Courtney Cox is probably most famous for her role as Monica Gellar on Friends but horror fans remember her as Gale Weathers in the Scream franchise of films.  Other than that there is really no other horror related movie she has been in but her performance in the Scream series warrants her to be a full fledged Horror Hottie.  Other than Scream and Friends she has appeared on Seinfeld, Family Ties and starred in Ace Venture Pet Detective.

In the mid 90's the horror genre was needing a recharge big time.  Wes Craven swoops in and unleashes Scream on the world and instantly the genre got the shot of adrenaline that it needed.  Courtney plays the reporter Gale Weathers who will stop at nothing to get her story.  Especially when it comes to Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell) who she believes mistakenly put the wrong person in prison for the murder of Sydney's Mother.  The character of Gale is dirty, manipulative and always sexy.  Courtney has appeared in all 4 of the films and maybe a 5th??

Horror Hottie of the Month May 2013

This month we are going to take a look at Christine Elise noteably from Child's Play 2.  Actually this is really the only horror related film she has really done but since I am a HUGE fan of Child's Play 2 she is May's Horror Hottie.  One perk of running your own website, HA!

Most of Christine's resume consists of television having appeared on 21 Jump Street, Law and Order SVU and who can forget her as the loveable psycho Emily Valentine on Beverly Hills 90210.  Since I watch Child's Play 2 on a Yearly basis and probably more than once a year that is the role I will always remember.
She played the foster sister of Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) who at first thinks he is just a child with a few problems.  Then she see's the people around her dropping off and comes face to face, so to speak, with the killer Good Guy Doll Chucky.  Child's Play 2 is so memorable because of the finale.  One of the longest and best finales in a 90's slasher.  I may get a few nay sayers that would say Scream is the best 90's slasher but not for me.  While I like scream alot, I prefer watching this classic with Christine Elise.

R I P Richard Brooker: You will be Missed


Today horror fans around the world have gotten word about the passing of an icon in the horror industry, Richard Booker.  The first person to put on the hockey mask that would forever change pop culture as we know it.  The outpouring of fans sending their condolences on his facebook page is amazing.  I was looking on his page and kept moving down, down and down further and realized I was looking at posts from just 16 minutes ago.  Over the weekend Richard posted on his facebook that his was ill and not feeling well.  I never did have the pleasure of meeting who I consider to be my favorite Jason and my condolences go out to his friends and family.

Friday the 13th Part 3 has always held a soft spot in my heart.  Richard protrayed such a tall and intimidating Jason.
 I would have liked to have asked him what it meant to him to be the one to wear the mask first.  I think I speak for all Friday and horror fans in general when I say, "you will be missed sir".
