Do you want to know when you’ve achieved hotness as a horror hottie? When you can spend the second act of a film with a wooden table leg in place of your real one; and the last act of the same film with a machine gun in place of the same wooden table leg that was a substitute for your real leg in the first place and look damn sexy either way. That’s exactly what Rose McGowan did when she starred as Cherry Darling, ex-Go Go Dancer turned bad-ass zombie killer in Robert Rodriguez’ “Planet Terror“. Miss McGowan has had quite the career in the horror genre with roles in “Scream” (1996), “Devil in the Flesh” (1998), “Phantoms” (1998) and the television series “Charmed” (2001-2006). She is in post-production on “The Tell-tale Heart“, based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe; and in pre-production with Julia Stiles and Virginia Madsen on “The Bell Jar”, based on the novel by Sylvia Plath. It looks like Written in Blood’s Scream Queen of the Month for May 2012 is just…cherry.


Auditioned for the role of Lisa in Girl, Interrupted (1999). The part eventually went to Angelina Jolie.

She won the role of Tatum Riley in Scream (1996) after Melinda Clarke turned it down. Coincidentally, the two would later work together when Clarke guest starred on “Charmed” (1998) in October 2002.

Has agoraphobia and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

Quote: “I think if I had lived back in Salem, I would have been burned at the stake.”

About jmount43

I was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina on March 4, 1962. I guess that makes me old, but I certainly don't feel that way. I still play video games and listen to rock and roll music. I love movies, especially horror films. I have a beautiful wife who is my all time best friend. She supports me in everything I do. More importantly, she calls me out on my bullshit. This blog is dedicated to her for everything she's done for me.
