SCREAM QUEEN OF THE WEEK-OCTOBER 8th-12th-BRINKE STEVENS
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends and another edition of the Scream Queen of the Week. This time around our focus is on the beautiful Brinke Stevens. Miss Stevens was born Charlene Elizabeth Brinkman on September 20, 1954 in sunny San Diego, California. Before embarking on a career as a Scream Queen she received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Psychology at San Diego State University and a Master of Science from Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She has studied several languages and is an inactive member of Mensa. What I am trying to say here, ladies and gents, is that our lovely Miss Stevens is half smart!!
Miss Stevens has appeared in over 100 films, mostly in the horror and sci-fi genres. She has appeared in the films The Slumber Party Massacre, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama (was every Scream Queen in that damn movie?), Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity, Nightmare Sisters, Haunting Fear, The Summer of Massacre and Teenage Exorcist. I could go on but I would need a large supply of oxygen after naming all of her films. Don’t even think she has any intention of slowing down; she is currently filming The Trouble with Barry, Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley, Axeman at Cutter’s Creek and Trespass into Terror.
Let us stand up and salute our Scream Queen of the Week for October 8th to October 12th, Brinke Stevens!!
Married to comic book artist Dave Stevens for only six months, but following their divorce she kept his surname. The two remained friends until his death in 2008.
Was the subject of Jeopardy! answer: “Brinke Stevens is known by this semi-rhyming title.” Answer: “What is a Scream Queen?”
She appeared as herself in the novel Bad Moon Rising by multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry. In the novel she and other celebrities are in the town of Pine Deep for a Halloween festival when monsters attack. Other guests in the book include Debbie Rochon, Stephen Susco, James Gunn, Joe Bob Briggs, Jim O’Rear, Ken Foree, and blues singer Mem Shannon.
She was ranked number 18 on Celebrity Sleuth magazine’s list of the 50 Best Celebrity Butts of all time. (Celebrity Sleuth Volume 9, Number 5 The Living End).
A fan once told me, “Brinke, you’re just a big a nerd as the rest of us. You’re just better looking.”
“I’m convinced only two planetary species actually have ‘souls’ — humans and cetaceans.”
“I go from a demure co-ed to a whip-cracking dominatrix from hell. There are savage, scale-eyed zombies, virgin sacrifices and demonic possessions and, when I turn into a gorgeous, va-voom woman, I say the line I’ve always wanted to say, ‘Behold the new queen of hell!” And I say it with relish”.-About Teenage Exorcist.
“I’ve probably done more shower scenes than any actress in history. I’ve done so many that I’m probably the cleanest actress in Hollywood.”
