Erin Brown (born October 16, 1979 in Illinois, USA) is an actress, model, and film director. Her "trademark" appearance is her pronounced "naturalness" or lack of affectation, both in acting style and appearance. Soft porn favourite of mine and she has done quite a lot of ’em…

If you are blogging around you probably seen her in quite a few posts at Vera Roberts, click here for those posts.
Cassandra Peterson, Elvira’s alter ego, was born in Manhattan, Kansas, and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She remembers always being a fan of Ann-Margret. Since Cassandra saw her in Love in Las Vegas (1964), she wanted to be a dancer. Just days after graduating from high school, Cassandra traveled to Las Vegas where, at the age of 17, she became the youngest showgirl in Las Vegas history. When Elvis Presley saw her perform he encouraged her to pursue a singing career. She toured Europe extensively as lead singer for an Italian rock band. She settled in Rome, where she became fluent in Italian. Here Cassandra met Federico Fellini, who cast her in his classic film, Roma (1972). Returning to the US, Cassandra formed her own nightclub review, "Mama’s Boys", which toured the national club circuit. In the late 1970s she joined the satiric improvisational troupe, The Groundlings, which also produced such stars as Paul Reubens (aka "Pee Wee Herman"). There she honed her now renowned comedic skills as both a writer and performer. Film and television appearances such as Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie (1980) and others followed, but Cassandra was just the typical struggling actress and spent years wondering where her next meal was coming from. It was the fall of 1981, with the birth of her character, Elvira, that it all changed. While she has since played herself in many film and television shows, Cassandra Peterson ultimately combines her numerous talents into an intriguing persona which has not only become a Halloween icon, but a "vamp" for all seasons.

Well, gotta have Sigourney Weaver here in the scream queens lists or more kick-ass of horror girl list. I still claim that Alien is a horror movie and she is just to damn good in that one.

According to Kim Newman’s Nightmare Movies, she is on record as saying that she never wanted "to climb out of another fucking coffin again".
Ok, so it’s soon Halloween time, not a special event really for me except for one thing, there are more horror movies on TV. I’m a huge fan of horror movies ever since a little boy in Sweden when I first saw Jason chopping up unsuspected silly teenagers in the woods in Friday the 13th no 2. Since then my life changed, I went through all the horror movies I could get hold of, Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13 1,2,3,4,5 etc (I know they are shit but they are good shit..>), Razorback (man, that was a brilliant movie, Basketcase (really freaky movie) and so on… all the classic Hammer ones with lovely Christopher Lee (btw, read his autobiography, it’s so brilliant), Peter Cushing and Vincent Price went through my VCR for diligent watching.
I remember skipping school and cycling back with my mates for 2 hours to my house (yes, I lived in the woods) after renting Evil Dead to watch it. Sam Raimi was my god from that moment on and living in Brighton I got to see Brain Dead for the 1st time by Peter Jackson, one of the most bizarre movies but oh so fun, well ok my landlady didn’t agree completely…
I subscribed to the biggest gorefest magazine Fangoria so every month I could get advance warning of all the movies I had to see, my mom and dad really did wonder what was becoming of me.
So to celebrate the soon-to-come Halloween, will have more posts about Scream Queens, great horror movies you JUST have to watch and of course the normal pinups this month.
Hope you will enjoy and stay scared…
