Ronald McDonald had the ‘red hair game’ on lock for years. He owned it, and was reluctant to ever give up his crimson crown and dared anyone to try and challenge him for it. But in 1985, Linnea Quigley and her breasts burst onto the scene in the B-movie horror classic, The Return Of The Living Dead. And in a rare moment, her red hair in the movie upstaged those breasts and snatched that aforementioned crimson crown from the creepy-ass McDonald’s mascot.
Ms. Quigley gave us three fantastic things in The Return Of The Living Dead: her character’s name (Trash), her nude graveyard dance, and her punk-influenced red mop on top. And it’s that red mop on top that is truly a ‘Great Moment In Horror Hair History‘ and is more than deserving to be in the illustrious company of Shelly’s Jewfro from Friday The 13th Part 3 and Rider Strong’s armpits from Cabin Fever. Also deserving, is the way that Trash knew how to really sit and conduct herself like a lady. Spread eagle is always an underrated classic and should be commended. Congrats, Linnea!
Few scenes make me shed a tear in a good way like the almost 10 minute long Lake Victoria bloodbath opus from 2010’s Piranha 3D. It’s mind-blowing. It’s glorious. It’s got a girl getting her face ripped off after getting her hair tangled in a boat propeller. If you’ve seen it, then you know why it I’m so giddy and why I have to spotlight it on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday.
It’s just….so….beautiful. Sorry, I told myself I wouldn’t cry. Take it in horror fans, because it might be a while before you see anything like that again. For me, everything was perfect about this movie and what it tried to accomplish, but that scene right there took it to a whole other level. So many great moments just in those 8 minutes alone, but I have to give the edge to propeller head girl for my favorite. The Eli Roth head smash comes in a close second. Thank you Piranha 3D.
