Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Beauty vs Beast: All Hail Queen Posey

Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"contest,which this week will be marking the milestone of 50 freaking years of the eternal goddess Parker Posey.Do you recall the first place you saw her?I feel like for most people it was probablyDazed and Confusedbut I have a really vivid memory of her inConeheads,for some reason.Whatever is was she's since given us half of her life and heaps of iconic characters in that time,and we're gawping in the presence of greatness today.

It seems a bit blasphemous to ignore her work with Christopher Guest ("Busy Bee!") but I'm gonna - I'm gonna go with two of her characters that ended up shaping my perception of her screen-image the most.And those two are Mary inParty Girland Jackie O inThe House of Yes...

PREVIOUSLYOur Halloween hangovers should (hopefully) be gone by now so let's say goodbye to my favorite holiday with one last big hug to Jack Skellington,who tooktheNightmare Before Christmaspollwith 74% of your vote.Saidcatbaskets:

"Mr.Oogie boogie says there's trouble close at hand.You better pay attention,now,'cause he's the boogie man.Jack counters that there are few who deny that at what he does he is the best for his talents are renowned far and wide.Jack in a landslide."

This is such a difficult choice.I ended up obsessing over her in HOUSE OF YES most but Party Girl is what began my deep love and allowed that obsession to occur so in a tight race I'm a Mary voter.Librarians 4ever!

I have not seen either of these movies,sadly.Whichever wins will be moved to the top of the streaming queue though

November 5,2018 | Unregistered CommenterPoliVamp

SEE THEM BOTH!Both onto the queue :)

Posey can do ANYTHING.

Almost made me piss my pants watching her guest turn on WILL & GRACE back in the day.

Team Jackie O.I do like "Party Girl"but never found it as fun as its reputation;Posey has had better material so many times since then.

I haven't seen Party Girl in so long but it was definitely my introduction to her delights,so it gets my vote.

Jackie O left me awestruck.It's such a star-making role and performance that it's almost painful to think on,given that Hollywood never capitalized on this huge talent.

My cousin,10 years younger than me,was obsessed with the real Jackie O and wore that pink suit for Halloween.She didn't like my suggestion to add brains to the look,and I found out she had never heard of this great film!

First discovered Parker Posey in SCREAM 3 where she steals the show and I usually turn off after she's murdered.I can recite EVERYTHING.

Fav Parker movie is prob HOUSE OF YES,and thennnnn DAZED/CONFUSED.She's also in a lot of good crap,like BLADE TRINITY (she needs to be in a Ryan Reynolds movie,like c'mon).

November 5,2018 | Unregistered Commentermikenewq

She was hilarious as the evil vampire queen (?) in Blade III.In a sort of "if I'm going down,I'm taking this whole movie with me"way.

November 5,2018 | Unregistered CommenterAnother David

The House of Yes is bonkers and would never get made today.Tori Spelling and Freddie Prinze in the cast are even weirder choices,but somehow it all works?
