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!
The last minute Xmas horror gift to end all last minute Xmas horror gifts is here: a Billy action figure from Silent Night Deadly Night. Yes, it’s for real and yes it will sell out in less than 2 seconds. If you’re not already familiar with Retroband, you should be. They make the horror toys that you always wanted as a kid, but thought would never become a reality. And this Sunday, an action figure based on the Billy character from 1984’s cult slasher Silent Night Deadly Night will indeed become a reality.
Granted, that’s just the package card above that the figure will appear in, but trust me, the figure will be just as awesome. But check out the detail up there! And if that doesn’t get you into the Christmas spirit, I don’t know what will. Other than some delicious fruitcake from your Aunt Cindy of course. These figures are going to be extremely limited and should sell for around $60. Go over to Retroband’s Instagram page HEREfor more details on the Silent Night Deadly Night figure and to keep you salivating in the meantime, here’s the back of the package card below including a pretty accurate drawing of Linnea Quigley’s 1984 breasts.
