Freddy In Space Exclusive : Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout Coming To DVD!


As I've said in the past, I really don't care to post news stories unless I can be the one to break 'em.  I generally like to leave that stuff to the news sites.  But this morning, I've got a wee bit of news to break!

Back in 1990, Puppetmaster writer Kenneth J. Hall (brother of "Monster Man" Cleve Hall!) linked up with uber scream queen Linnea Quigley to film a 60 minute VHS tape called Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout, a mash up of exercise tapes and horror flicks that saw Quigley exercising in minimal clothing, showing off some of her greatest hits, and finding herself in horrific situations, like being surrounded by zombies at the pool ... situations which she of course resolved through the fine art of scantily clad aerobics.  Essentially, it was a way for Quigley to show off her assets, and further establish herself as a wet dream icon for horror loving boys the world over.

The tape was an oddball little gem that is still talked about and fawned over to this day, though the movie never subsequently made its way off of VHS and onto DVD.  As a result, the tape has been fetching collector's prices for several years now, and the film has only hit DVD on the horror convention bootleg scene.

Well last night, I happened to notice that Kenneth J. Hall made a little status update on his Facebook page, where he mentioned that he was in the process of putting the film on DVD for the very first time, which would be packaged with lots of cool extras.  I shared this little tidbit on the Freddy In Space Facebook page, and after seeing that a whole lot of people were excited by the news, I decided to reach out to Hall and see if I could find out some more information about this long awaited release.

Here's the scoop I've got thus far, regarding the disc's special features!

That's really all I'm at liberty to say right now.  But the big news here is that this is happening, and I can promise that I will keep you posted as I learn more and am able to say more.  Perhaps there will even be some future interviews about the release here on Freddy In Space?  That'd be swell!

For now, enjoy this little taste of Ms. Quigley, and know that you will soon be able to pop her super sexy workout disc into your DVD player whenever you so desire!

That's completely surreal. I think watching the whole thing is probably almost therapeutic. Like listening to Earth 2 really loud on headphones but FOR YOUR EYES.

WOw. Just... wow.

I own a bootleg transfer of this. It is wonderful news that this will at last be unleashed. I long for bonus features. Could you imagine the commentary. It'd be hilarious.
