BEEP BEEP! They ALL float down here. After you view these awesome IT posters, you’ll float too!
I have an unwritten rule that goes along with my written rule for the selection of a Written in Blood Scream Queen. My written rule is that as long as you have appeared in at least one horror movie you qualify to be a Scream Queen; that is unless you’re under the age of 18. I don’t care if a potential Scream Queen has appeared in a thousand horror movies; until she reaches that magic 18 she will not qualify. This brings me to the latest entry. She turned 18 in February. Lest anyone think I waited for her like the assholes that waited on the Olsen twins to come of age I can assure you that is not the case. Let’s get on with this, shall we?
Chloë Grace Moretz was born on February 10, 1997 in Atlanta, Georgia to parents Teri and McCoy. She developed her interest in acting after her older brother Trevor was accepted into the Professional Performing Arts School in New York City.

More About Moretz
She loves gymnastics, basketball and ballet. She also loves to swim and play with her dogs.
Was a model before she became an actress.
She is a StarPower Ambassador for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
“My mom has always said that if I get a big head, she’ll take me out of this business as quickly as I got into it.”
“If I ever uttered one word that I said in Kick-Ass (2010), I would be grounded for years! I’d be stuck in my room until I was 20! I would never in a million years say that. I’m an average, everyday girl; when I act with my friends, I’m totally immature, I have to go to bed at 9:30, and, if I’m up late on the computer, I lose it for two months.”
“I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it. I will delete you, and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers. My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it’s life.”
SATURDAY NIGHT DIVA: BETH PHOENIX
aka Fabulous Firebird, Firebird, Phoenix
She was born on November 24, 1980 in Elmira, New York
She was trained by Ron Hutchinson, Joey Knight, Robin Knightwing and Ohio Valley Wrestling
She made her debut in May, 2001 and retired on October 29, 2012
Beth Valley Driver (Samoan Driver)
Delayed Cradle Suplex
Down in Flames (Michinoku Driver II)
Glam Slam (Elevated double chickenwing facebuster, sometimes executed from the top rope)
Glam Slam Stretch (Leg trap double chickenwing clutch, usually prededed by a Glam Slam)
Why she is the Saturday Night Diva:
Let me lay it right on the line for you: I am of the opinion, humble or otherwise, that Beth Phoenix was one of the most talented and beautiful women to ever set foot inside a WWE ring. She was blonde, buxom, and tough and she’s got three WWE Women’s Championships, one WWE Divas Championship and a Diva of the Year Slammy Award to prove it. Ever dominant she would toss hapless opponents, including Trish Stratus, Lita, Kelly Kelly and Mickie James, around the ring like rag dolls. Her time with career killer Santino Marella wasn’t even an issue; in her time Beth Phoenix was the dominant Diva. And then she was gone.
Her Wikipedia page indicates that she gave notice and left the WWE for family reasons. Here is where I get to the crux of why she is this week’s Saturday Night Diva; her Wiki page doesn’t indicate what those family reasons are and I for one don’t really care. It’s her business and no one else’s. What I respect is that this is a woman whose priorities are in the right place. Family comes first over fame, period. Nowadays Beth is with Adam Copeland aka Edge. They have a little girl, born in 2013. It’s not always about wrestling. Welcome this week’s Saturday Night Diva, Beth Phoenix.
What can I say about the death of Wes Craven that hasn’t been said already? That he was a master of horror; which he was. That he created a character in Freddy Krueger that is as iconic and memorable as Frankenstein’s monster or Count Dracula; which he did. Was all of his movies absolute perfection in every way? No. Bad or good, though, the one thing they could never be called is boring. From Krug in The Last House on the Left to Ghostface in the Scream series of films Craven gave us characters that will not be forgotten and for that reason we will not forget him.
As tribute to Wes Craven I present to you the trailers from his many genre films. If I couldn’t find the trailer then I present to you the film in its entirety; if I couldn’t find either then I humbly apologize.

I have a confession to make: I let the month of August slip right past me and the month of September sneak up on me with nothing whatsoever prepared in the way of a Scream Queen of the Month. So, I thought to myself, “I need a quickie to put out for the month.” Then I thought, “I’ve thought about doing Jenna Jameson as a choice but when would be the best month to do her?” Well, since September appears to be open why not then? Trust me, this will be quick.
Jenna Jameson was born Jennifer Marie Masoli on April 9, 1974 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her genre credits include Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain (2003), Zombie Strippers (2008) and Horrorween (2011). Non-genre credits include Private Parts (1997). She’s made guest TV appearances on Nash Bridges (2000), Mister Sterling (2003), Family Guy (2001) and Sons of Anarchy (2014).
I told you this would be quick. I feel like there’s something else I should tell you about Jenna Jameson but I just can’t put a finger on what it is. Anyway, let’s welcome Jenna Jameson as the September, 2015 Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month!
THE JAM ON JENNA
Her father Larry Massoli is a retired police officer. Her late mother Judith Brooke Massoli (née Hunt) was a showgirl. Both worked in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Her mother was diagnosed with melanoma and died shortly afterwards on February 20, 1976. Before her illness, she had been a showgirl at the Tropicana and the Folies Bergère in Las Vegas.
Her paternal grandfather was of Italian descent.
Graduated from Bonanza High School in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1992.
“I kept getting a weird vibe from her. I knew what it meant, because I’d experienced it so many times before, but I kept dismissing it. It couldn’t be true; she was Cindy Crawford. When I turned my back… Cindy reached over and rubbed the back of my neck. “Ooh”, she cooed. “Look at your beautiful tattoo.” She touched my neck so softly and sensually.”
SATURDAY NIGHT DIVA-LITA
aka Angelica, Miss Congeniality
She was born on April 14, 1975 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
She was trained by Dory Funk, Jr., Ricky Santana and Kevin Quinn
She made her debut in 1999
She retired in 2006
Lita Bomb (Sheer drop release powerbomb)
Lita DDT (Snap DDT)
Reverse Twist of Fate (Inverted facelock neckbreaker slam)
Twist of Fate (Front facelock cutter)
Why she is the Saturday Night Diva:
Is it because she elevated the careers of any male wrestler she had association with, including Matt Hardy, Kane, Randy Orton and of course, Edge? Is it because she got in the ring and pulled off moonsaults, hurricanranas, suicide dives and superplexes (to name a few of the many moves in her repertoire) better than a lot of the men? How about being a 4-time WWF/WWE Women’s Champion and her classic feud with Trish Stratus over the rights to the title. Perhaps it is her inspiration of a young AJ Lee to become a professional wrestler and put her own stamp on the business. Maybe it’s because she’s a WWE Hall of Famer. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s because she is a bona fide, 100 per cent deserved legend in the world of women’s professional wrestling. There is hot, smoking’ hot and then there is Lita Hot. She is in a class by herself and she is the Saturday Night Diva.
To think that at one point in my life I had a strong dislike for this movie. I was young and stupid but have long mended my ways. I watch this movie every year and that will never cease.
