I have always maintained that the only requirements for someone to be Scream Queen of the Month are that they be A. Female (I have never heard of a Scream King and I hope I never do, no offense to anyone); and B. They have to have appeared in at least one horror movie during the course of their career. That being said I have a small confession to make: I like it when the lovely lady that I choose for the month has a nice list of horror credits to her name. It just seems to lend more credibility to her contributions to the genre.
Born December 7, 1972 in Oakland, California, Christa Campbell has starred in her fair share of horror movies.

Christa Facts, Ma’am
Grew up in Rohnert Park, California where she graduated from Rancho Cotate High School.
Rosemary’s Baby is one of those movies that defines the word ‘insidious’. As each frame progresses you feel it getting under your skin slowly and subtly. Here’s hoping these awesome alt-posters do the same trick.
ALT-POSTR-MONDAY: ROSEMARY’S BABY
Synopsis: Steve Guttenberg and the Police Academy cast vs. fire breathing spiders!
Is it just me or does this look pretty freaking awesome for a SyFy channel movie? I’m beginning to think I can base Friday Night at the Trailer Park entirely on these ridiculous (and ridiculously) entertaining films like Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No and Lavalantula and be perfectly fine with it. Lavalantula stars Steve Guttenberg, Leslie Easterbrook, Michael Winslow, Nia Peeples, and Ralph Garman. All it needs is Bobcat Goldthwaite and let’s not forget the cool cameo from Ian Ziering! Lavalantula airs Saturday, July 25 on the SyFy channel. That’s tomorrow night, people! Until then enjoy the trailer below. I’m going to submit my idea for “Sharksquatch” to the SyFy guys. I think my chances are pretty good, don’t you?
Some cool posters from a fantastic movie. Enjoy.
ALT-POSTR-MONDAY: EDWARD SCISSORHANDS
Synopsis: The Springwood Police Department has just arrested a man named Fred Krueger, a janitor at the local power plant whom they believe to be the notorious Springwood Slasher. A filthy child murderer who has murdered 20 children over a 5 year long reign of terror on the nice suburban Ohio town. Krueger has been brought to the station to be interrogated by the department’s senior lieutenant. Sit down with one of the most charismatic and sinister men to ever walk the earth and hear him tell his story.
The Confession of Fred Krueger is a fan-film inspired by the character of Freddy Krueger, a creation of the legendary horror director Wes Craven. According to the official Facebook page for the project ” there will be no physical copies sold of this film nor a theatrical run. This is a very low budget, non-profit fan film. It will be available exclusively for FREE online for all to see on youtube.
The film will be online in mid-September. It is currently in post production.
Thank you so much for the support and interest.”
This is one of the reasons I began Friday Night at the Trailer Park; I didn’t want to feature all the big name, big budget films. I want this feature to mainly focus on the low budget, independent films and that includes a film like The Confession of Fred Krueger. The 90 seconds plus trailer looks better than the entire 95 minute 2010 remake could have ever dreamed of. That being said enjoy the trailer and the poster below.
