Get your raincoat on and pretend it is 1989 all over again as 88 Films brings the world’s greatest scream queens back to Blu-Ray for three of their flesh-flaunting adventures as part of a special edition set!!! 

Available November 26th but shipping NOW from the 88 Films web site our latest release is THE BEST OF 80S SCREAM QUEENS!

It was the eighties, man…
And let’s make no mistake about it: when people think of VHS-era SCREAM QUEENS three names come to mind: Linnea Quigley, Michelle Bauer and Brinke Stevens - the threesome of fear that sliced and seduced a generation of gore-hounds and whose greatest hits can finally be seen in HD from the schlock-lovers at 88 Films! For those unaware (and, really, we need to have some words) Quigley was the Playboy magazine pin-up turned icon of lung-power in such plasma spilling icons as SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT (1984) and RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (1985). Stevens, meanwhile, would also drop her dress for Playboy but really stood out thanks to meeting the dangerous end of a drill in SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE (1982) prior to headlining such trashy terror totems as SORORITY BABES IN THE SLIMEBALL BOWL-A-RAMA (1988) and BAD GIRLS FROM MARS (1990). Finally, by far the most taboo-breaking of them all, Michelle Bauer began her celluloid stint as an XXX-rated raven-haired seductress in the hardcore cult classic CAFÉ FLESH (1982) before going legit with the likes of low budget wonders HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS (1988) and DR. ALIEN (1989).

Now, thanks to this charming and chilling collection, addicts of excessive violence, gratuitous nudity and breathtakingly B-level bloodshed can rock out to the likes of DEADLY EMBRACE (1989) which highlights AIRWOLF's main man JanMichael Vincent as a hunky Beverly Hills husband with babes to spare. However, before long he is being stalked by a heartbroken high heeled pin-up and the result is both creepy and creatively nasty! This is Bauer and Quigley at their eighties big haired best – and the flesh and fear comes thick and fast as this unpredictably torrid pot-boiler unwinds its cheeky charms onscreen!

Also included in this behemoth of a boxed set is NIGHTMARE SISTERS (1988), in which our frisky Scream Queen threesome are in fine form once again – yup, it is Quigley, Stevens and Bauer in their most magnum opus ever! This time around the eighties icons mutate into monstrous but marvellously sexy male-hunting mutants in this scantily budgeted (and scantily clad!) wonder that features ample flayed flesh and an equal enthusiasm towards sublime set-pieces of splatter movie madness! 

Finally comes  a Quigley solo epic, MURDER WEAPON (1989) - a hard to forget frightener that also offers a number of laugh-out-loud moments of pre-SCREAM comedy-laceration, not to mention some truly demented scenes of slice 'em up insanity that may well leave a few viewers with their jaws on the floor. But what else would you expect from a motion picture mad enough to contain the legendary Eric Freeman (SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT PART 2) in a supporting role? In the style of NAIL GUN MASSACRE (1985) this darkly comic marathon of macabre ideas is finally restored for its 88 Films debut! 

Directed by the legendary Z-movie expert David DeCoteau and with each nostalgic pot-boiler packed with an enthusiastic fondness for breast-baring babes and skull-bashing set pieces - 88 Films is proud to introduce our finest compendium of carnage yet, a Scream Queen celebration that is dying to be experienced! It can only be THE BEST OF 80S SCREAM QUEENS!
