“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

Barbara Steele Black Sunday


Coming in at number 5 in my Scream Queen collection and another one destined for The Dark Side magazine. Miss Steele must surely have the most iconic face of any actress in horror. Maggie Kimberly (The Mummy’s Shroud) ran her a close 2nd for eerie, Gothic beauty but sadly Maggie also ran John Agar a close 2nd in the crap actor department. Not so Babs. She was even brilliant in Shivers when everyone else just looked plain embarrassed!
