Are you ready to scream yourself into shape?
Linnea Quigley was quick to establish herself as a staple of the horror genre in the early eighties. Soon afterward she rose to much greater prominence with significant roles in Silent Night, Deadly Night, Savage Streets and Return of the Living Dead. With her reputation as a scream queen cemented, Quigley would be a staple in the genre for the rest of the decade and beyond, with iconic turns in 1988’s Night of the Demons and the following year’s Sorority Babes in the Slime Bowl-O-Rama.
Given her calibre and popularity on the home video circuit, it was little surprise when Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout hit video stores in 1990.
Very much a spoof of both the horror genre and the fitness video trend, the 50-minute clip sees Quigley traversing various horror tropes, always ending in a vigorous aerobic workout. Quigley does aerobics in tandem with a horde of zombies multiple times during the video.
Since 1990, Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout has only been available on VHS, and copies have dwindled over the last three decades. However, this is about to be remedied in a big way, as the horror-fitness cross-over is heading to Blu-ray via Terror Vision.
This will mark the first time that the quirky clip has been released on any disc format in the US. Loaded with extra features, the Blu-ray will feature an on-camera interview with star Linnea Quigley and a commentary from the actress and director Kenneth J. Hall
The release announcement has been met with much fanfare in the horror community, so it is undeniable this vintage re-issue will be a hit.
