WHERE ARE THEY NOW? ROTLD’s LINNEA QUIGLEY

For those lovers of classic zombie movies, you will of course remember fondly the character of Trash, in Return of the Living Dead (1985). Trash was played voraciously by B-movie scream-queen Linnea Quigley in a break-out performance. Well, maybe break-out is not exactly how to describe it. While this would prove to be the most important and successful performance of her career, she continues to work steadily as the trashy scream-queen she portrayed in Return of the Living Dead.

Hey– it’s a living!

Linnea worked on over 100 mostly low budget horror, which included Creepozoids (1987), Dead Heat (1988), Night of the Demons (both 1988 and 2009 versions), Pumpkinhead II (1994), Stripperland (2011), Girls Gone Dead (2012), including the starring role of Malicia Tombs in the aptly named Scream Queen (2002).

Perhaps most bizarre of all might be Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout (1990). IMDB describes this straight-to-video:

After a nice shower, Linnea does some warm-up stretches and then goes for a run. She encounters some flabby zombies who follow her back to the house, where she leads them in some poolside aerobic routines. Later she unwinds by inviting some girlfriends over for a slumber party and some exercise. When something goes bump in the house, her friends begin experiencing an attrition problem.

So where is she now? Linnea Quigley is currently in five films that are in post-production right now (Disciples, Demonica, A Blood Story, Virginia Obscur, and Hunters— all 2013), and filming in two others to be released next year (Terror Toons 3 and Crazy Fat Ethel). So while she hasn’t strayed too far from what she does best, she has been a very busy lady indeed!

    trash’s whole ideal of fun by eaten alive by a bunch of old men is really
    the sought of thing you wouldn’t have in an discussion on an date especially
    when she starts tearing of her clothes to engage in an euphoric strip dance
    in front of everyone but having an orgasmic fantasy about it was very strange
    behaviour that’s way beyond sociopathic to the brink of insanity especially
    the last place that you wouldn’t talk about death and have an spontaneous
    in is in the cemetery whilst an zombie invasion is brewing to say that
    most young people will do and say the stupidest things in most places
    but trash really had it coming after her fantasy about being eaten alive
    early on but later to resurrect as the queen of the undead to say she
    was the only character to have an heavy score under her and how she
    looked like an creepy Barbie doll to say she gained pop icon status
    where fans loved and wanted to be her but no brains to make the
    pain go away is intended seriously .
