SCREAM QUEEN OF THE WEEK-OCTOBER 15th-19th-MICHELLE BAUER
Two down, two to go. Welcome to Written in Blood and the third installment of our Scream Queen of the Week. This week the focus is on the Beverly Hills Vamp and the Hollywood Chainsaw Hooker herself, Michelle Bauer!
Michelle entered this world on October 1st, 1958 in the city of Montebello, located in Los Angeles County, California. She is the Penthouse Pet of the Month for July 1981 and she began her career acting in adult films under the moniker Pia Snow. Her most famous hardcore film is the cult classic Café Flesh, a film in which actor-comedian Richard Belzer appeared as an audience member.
Michelle’s layout in Penthouse led to the Playboy Channel and eventually to being discovered by director Fred Olen Ray. Ray cast her in his film The Tomb and she has been going strong ever since. She has appeared in the previously mentioned films Beverly Hills Vamp and Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers as well as Reform School Girls, Dinosaur Island, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, Deathrow Diner, The Phantom Empire, Nightmare Sisters and Puppet Master III: Toulon’s Revenge and that’s just to name a few. Like many of her fellow Scream Queens she is still hard at work; she is currently filming The Trouble with Barry with Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens and Lynn Lowry. Let’s give a warm and hearty welcome to our Scream Queen of the Week, Michelle Bauer!!
She is Mexican (from her mother’s side) and Czechoslovakian (from her father’s side).
She was interviewed in the book “Invasion of the B-Girls” by Jewel Shepard.
The documentary Screaming in High Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era (2011) focuses on her career, along with Linnea Quigley and Brinke Stevens, from the mid-1980s through to the 1990s low-budget horror films.
