Did You Know?


The idea for this video came about on the set of Murder Weapon (1989). Linnea Quigley said in a 2015 interview: "Kevin Hall and I were watching Murder Weapon on the monitor when we were doing it, and he was watching me. I have a black hood on, you don't know who the killer is, and I'm taking this big hatchet thing down again and again. And I go, oh, my god, that's heavy. And he said, 'Horror movies are hard work. Why don't we make a horror workout?' So the week after, we were doing it, in two days." She also talked about how difficult it was at times: "I had a little bit of trouble keeping up with the choreographer that was in front of me, that you couldn't see. It would be like, 'Oh, I'm going left but I should be going right.' I can dance on my own but I'm horrible if it's watching someone else and doing it, and ever since I was a kid I was like that."

Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout (1990)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Whereas BILLY THE KID VS. Dracula was one of the drive-in eras biggest cult favorites, this thing here has to be one of the crowning achievements of the VHS era. I'm sure anyone who grew up in the 80s remember the days when you'd walk into your local shop and never know what new, weird title you'd find on the shelf.

We all know that Linnea Quigley was one of the biggest stars of the VHS days and this here has to be her most outrageous film. Part documentary, part workout video and part slasher, this film offers up quite a bit in its 61-minute running time but without a doubt the main reason it was made is so that her fans could see her naked (again). Basically we start off with Quigley talking to the camera and then going through some of her movie clips. From here she shows us her workout, which leads her to going for a job when she's attacked by zombies. She's worried about the "shape" that the zombies are in so she leads them on an exercise. Later, after another workout, Quigley and her girlfriends are stalked by a psycho.

Anyone who would actually take this film serious are certainly watching the wrong movie. I think as long as you come into this thing with an open mind then you should be able to have some fun with it. Quigley is certainly attractive enough to where it's easy to just look at her beautiful body but she's also quite charming here and manages to be very funny as well (especially during a "stretch your muscle" joke). The zombie scene is funny in its own way and the slasher segment also does a nice job at spoofing the type of horror films that were being released during this period. At just 61-minutes I will admit that the workout stuff gets a little dragged out a bit but there's still no question that fans of Quigley will enjoy watching this.
