When talking about horror scream queens, few names rank higher on the list of the greatest than Linnea Quigley. So when word got out that a Quigley film that was shot over a decade ago is premiering in September, we had to check it out.
Fittingly entitled Scream Queen, the film stars Quigley and was written and directed by Brad Sykes. It will be premiering on September 15, 2012, at the Syracuse Horror and More Film Festival, part of the Scare-A-Cuse Horror and Sci-Fi Fan Convention in Verona, NY. The film will also be receiving an extras-packed DVD release from LEO Films later this year.
From the Press Release
Legendary scream queen Linnea Quigley’s lost film Scream Queen will finally have its world premiere this year – 14 years after it was shot! The first feature written and directed by cult horror filmmaker Brad Sykes (Camp Blood Trilogy, Plaguers), Scream Queen is a horror comedy that parodies the no/low budget horror film scene.
After famous “scream queen” Malicia Tombs (Quigley) dies in a freak accident on the set of her latest chiller, the shoot is suspended and the film shelved. One year later the cast and crew are summoned to an isolated mansion to finish the movie. Everyone is a suspect in Malicia’s untimely death, and a masked killer with vengeance on its mind soon begins bumping them off, one by one. Is Malicia back from the dead, or is someone else responsible? You’ll be screaming – and laughing – all the way till the bloody finish.
