Introduction to BITCHES, BIMBOS
Bitches, Bimbos and Virgins!...Oh my!
To many, this may sound like an exploitative title, a book that caters to prurient tastes and features cheesecake photographs of pseudo-actresses from direct-to-video basement/bedroom productions. Those so-called Scream Queens.
But this is not that type of book
No, Bitches, Bimbos and Virgins is the history of women in the horror cinema, profiling their evolution from coffee maker to scientist, from seductress and victim to kick ass heroine, and finally detailing their emergence as well-drawn characters who play important roles in horror movie history—past, present and future.
And don't expect this history to be definitive, stuffy nor academic, for the history of women in horror cinema should be as enjoyable to read as it is to watch. A fun read with plenty of photos!
