Scream Queens: Why?

Every so often I get an email from someone who is disgusted that I have pages on here featuring photos of “Scream Queens”. They contain all kinds of abuse, the mildest is usually just calling me a misogynist. So, I thought I’d explain why I have these pages on here, despite being a self confessed feminist.

You see, All of the women featured on here have embraced the “Scream Queen” tag, and all that it entails of their own accord. To the best of my knowledge, none of them have been forced into doing it. Yes, they often ended up nude. That’s the nature of exploitation movies. They are there to exploit. Be it via nudity, violence, gore, profanity, these films are pure exploitation, mostly of the audience and it’s desires. So yes, there are naked women on here. But they are part of exploitation film culture. And as long as it is of their own accord, who am I to tell them they are wrong? Their bodies, their choice.

And, incidentally, if anyone finds any male “Scream Queens” they want putting on here, drop me a line, and I’ll gladly add them.
