“The Scariest Workout Video Ever Made”

Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout, originally uploaded by Coilhouse.

At this very moment, in my hot little hands, I hold a copy of 80s scream queen Linnea Quigley‘s ineffably rad “Horror Workout” video.

Much to the disappointment of B-movie fans everywhere, this pinnacle of home fitness instruction has yet to be made available on DVD. The VHS cassette sells for anywhere between 50 and 100 clams online.

Here’s a taste of what you’re missing…

EDIT 05/29/2009: Good news, boys and ghouls! You can now buy an autographed DVD-R of Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout on the scream queen’s website, www.linneaquigley.net.

    Just because you’re dead, do you think you have to let yourselves go?

    Teehee. ;)

    Ha! My local video store, growing up, had Burial Ground, Meet the Feebles und Mausoleum, but not this. Danke!

    This is FANTASTIC. Made my day, especially the sudden “Woo!” at the end.

    Love it. This brings back happy memories of an old favorite Linnea Quigley movie, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama. She really is something special.

    I concur, that is the scariest workout video ever made.
    Ye Gods, what a thing to inflict upon my unsuspecting psyche at
    5:00 in the morning!

    On the subject of Linnea…
    Of course, in my heart, she’ll always be ‘Trash’ from Return of the Living Dead!

    Hey, somebody get some light over here, Trash is taking off her clothes again!

    Linnea Quigley is 100% Pure Awesome.

    Personally, I think this is the scariest workout video ever made…

    This is quite possibly the greatest workout video ever…not only because of the dancing zombies…but because it’s during THE DAY! Guess it’s the only time the undead have time to workout.

    WOW! When your past comes back to haunt you! I played the mad killer “The GIPPER” in this masterpiece, which was written and directed by my brother Kenneth Hall. He owns the master to this and, if enough of you want it, I’m sure we can talk him into releasing it on DVD!

    Izzat really yooou?!

    NO [email protected]#$%^& @#$%^ WAY!

    I know there’s a thriving market for this video’s DVD release. I have NO doubt in my rotting little brain. Emailing you in the morning.

    (Come to think of it, I should totally do a “where are they now” interview with all you gorgeous 80s hollyweirdos. Revel in your past, good sir!)

    The 80s.. too bad the video isnt working!

    As far as the one you posted in a comment Mer?
    Scarring. truly. not that ever workout, but if I had had even the slightest inclination to do so at one point, its gone.

  16. Mer Says:


    Yeah, I’m bummed the video got taken down. I really need to contact Cleve and Kenneth and see about getting it re-released…

  17. StacyK Says:

    There are other clips up on YouTube, and in digging around, I noticed several folks mention they had recently bought the DVD of this fine, fine piece of cinema from Linnea herself…

    And low and behold, it’s listed on her website store:

    “Now shuffle! shuffle! shuffle! And Lurch! 2, 3, 4! And Lunge!”
