Porn Stars Featured in Horror Films, Jenna Jameson, Marilyn Chambers, Amber Lynn, Veronica Hart

Over the years adult film stars have had varied success in trying to cross over to mainstream movies. Typically their attempts almost always land them in a horror film or two. For some reason horror film producers assume that their audiences love porn stars... and for the most part they are probably right. Here's a few films that prominently feature some of porn's top ladies.

Rabid - Marilyn Chambers
1977 - Directed by David Cronenberg

Rose (Marilyn Chambers) suffers severe wounds in a motorcycle accident. Experimental surgery turns her into a vampire of sorts that infects her victims with a incurable and fatal case of mania that resembles rabies.








Things - Amber Lynn
1989
A guy and his friend go to his brothers house to drink a ton of beer and end up having to fight some ant-like sharp-toothed creatures that were born of the brother's sickly wife. Amber Lynn plays a news reporter, pretty badly too.




Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh - Veronica Hart
1991
Concerns a mysterious Egyptian slasher terrorizing Pittsburgh and a scantly-clad Veronica Hart.






Evil Breed: Legend of Samhain - Jenna Jameson
2003, AKA: Samhain

Also features Chasey Lain and Ginger Lynn Allen. Two American tourists on a romantic camping trip are brutally murdered. A few days later, during the ancient festival of Samhain, a group of American university students moves into a beautiful cottage, surrounded by a lush forest and a majestic lake. They are here to learn about the rituals of the ancient Druids and other Celtic legends. But in the remains of an abandoned copper mine, lives the ancestors of an incestuous clan of cannibals. Stalked by a hulking, disfigured mutant, the students and their chaperone are in for the most harrowing time of their young lives.





Zombie Strippers - Jenna Jameson
2008

Miss Jameson seems to be becoming a favorite porn star to be featured in low budget horror movies. No plot summary required.

House on Haunted Hill - Starring Vincent Price


We have the original House on Haunted Hill fom 1959 starring Vincent Price on DVD for just $7.95 at http://www.thegrindhouse.net/ We also have the Cinema Insomnia edition hosted by Mr. Lobo for just a few bucks more.

Would you stay in a haunted house for one night for $10,000? That is the situation of five strangers who have been invited by Frederick Loren to stay at a house where many murders have taken place. As the night wears on, strange sounds and ghostly visions appear to the guests. Will they be able to make it through the night or will someone end up dead? Or was it all a hoax?

House on Haunted Hill stars the eerie Vincent Price as the wealthy playboy Frederick Loren. Director William Castle enjoyed gimmicks. In some of the theaters showing the movie he rigged a skeleton to fly above the audience at the correct time with the movie. Much of the movie s success is owed to Castle's ingenuity.

Bad Girls Go To Hell DVD, Continues to be a Fan Favorite!


We've had Bad Girls Go To Hell out on DVD since 2008 and it continues to sell all the time. It never ceases to amaze me how certain movies never die. Fans continue to seek this film out all the time. It's one of those celluloid anomalies that has long outlived it's drive-in beginnings.

Bad Girls Go To Hell: One of the roughest and most provocative films to come out of 1965! Bad Girls Go to Hell because they're possessed with sex and they know no shame. After murdering her rapist, Ellen hits the road and ends up in some very disturbing situations. She is used and abused throughout the entire film!


Directed by Doris Wishman.
