The story behind the rise and fall of New York's 42nd Street. The cinemas, the films, the people, the crime and the rebirth of the block as "New 42nd Street" - this is the document of the world's most notorious movie strip.
A color-blind psychiatrist Bill Capa is stalked by an unknown killer after taking over his murdered friend's therapy group, all of whom have a connection to a mysterious young woman that Capa begins having intense sexual encounters with.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
The quiet Rose works in women's fashion clothing, hoping to be a designer. A traffic accident damages her face. She gets experimental stem cell treatment, leaving her stronger and prettier than ever - but there's a side effect.
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
Michelle Bauer, Danielle Harris, Adrienne King, Lynn Lowry, Sybil Danning, Linnea Quigley, Catriona MacColl, Cassandra Patterson, Caroline Munroe, Brinke Stevens, Patricia Tallman and Lisa Wilcox are just some of the ladies interviewed for this documentary, which talks everything dealing with being a Scream Queen.
There have been several documentaries that cover what a Scream Queen is. Going back to the early 90s there were documentaries on the subject and there have been many more over the past ten years. That's a great thing because future generations will have documents with these ladies talking about their work and the films. This one here from Calum Waddell features many familiar faces as well as some new people who are discussing a wide range of topics.
The actresses share their thoughts on many topics including how they got into the business, what they think of their fans, their thoughts on the violence in movies, the nudity that is often required, their legacy and some of the controversial moments where some feel the women are being exploited. These are several other topics are discussed and if you're a fan of the actresses or the films then you should enjoy all of it. There are some very good discussions with the actresses talking about their fears on the nudity or why they are brave about it and have no problems doing it.
If you've seen any of the previous documentaries then you're obviously going to be hearing some of the same stories but as a fan of the genre I must admit that they are always entertaining and it's great getting to see so many familiar faces in one movie.
