Invasion of the Scream Queens (1992)

*** (out of 4)

Donald Farmer directed this early documentary that features interviews with several women who make their careers appearing in exploitation and horror movies. Michelle Bauer, Janus Blythe, Marya Gant, Ruth Collins, Martine Beswick, Melissa Moore, Elizabeth Kaitan, Deborah Stern and Brinke Stevens are among the ladies who are interviewed for the documentary.

If you're a fan of the various direct-to-VHS titles that were so popular back in the 1980's then you'll certainly enjoy this documentary even though there's no question that it appears to have been filmed on a very cheap camera. What makes this film work is the fact that there are interviews with some lesser known actresses so it's great getting to hear their stories. There have been several documentaries on Scream Queens that came after this and they are actually much better but there's still something about this one that makes it worth watching.

All of the actresses interviewed talk about the same subjects, which include their first movie, their thoughts on acting in these types of films, the subject of nudity and just random thoughts on horror movies. As I said, there have been better made documentaries since this was released but this one remains entertaining because it does feature interviews with ladies who are lesser known today and who aren't seen in the future movies.
