Unsung Heroes of Hollywood: The Films of Elizabeth Kaitan

Unsung Heroes of Hollywood: The Films of Elizabeth Kaitan

Each month I’m going to take a look at an actor, actress, or filmmaker that I grew up loving and has informed my own career (if calling what I do in the industry qualifies as such) in writing or performing. Films are supposed to be fun, entertaining ventures that allow an escape from the day-to-day happenings of our lives. Why not celebrate the uncelebrated, folks. Join me on my quest as I gush over those who have inspired me to put words on a website that will ultimately never equate what it means to be honored by their peers at an official award show or film festival.

‘Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood’

The Friday the 13th franchise holds a special place in my heart. With this first piece dropping on a Friday the 13th, one of two in 2017, I thought it might be fitting to take a look at one of my favorite characters in the series and her work in other genre pieces. A Hungarian born model turned actress, Elizabeth Kaitan plays Robin in John Carl Buechler’s seventh entry in the franchise. Trading in her trademark blonde locks for a more subdued head of red hair, Robin isn’t your typical “have sex, smoke pot, and die” camper, folks. Elizabeth Kaitan’s portrayal of a cute, young would-be victim is a departure from the campers that we’ve come to expect to set-up shop along Crystal Lake. Robin, along with her friends, find themselves hold up inside a cabin waiting for their friend, William Butler’s fantastic Michael, to show up for his surprise birthday party. Due to car problems, and a freshly resurrected Jason Voorhees, Michael never makes it to the party. What are the kids to do? Aside from making fun of the neighborhood telepath, Robin and her bestie Maddy pine for the affection of young stoner David. Obviously I am only speculating here, but with infamous producer Barbara Sachs ruining SFX on set, and the MPAA’s clear hard-on for the film’s violence, Beuchler had more room than he probably ever intended to let the characters breathe in “The New Blood,” again, only speculating. I personally feel this adds to the film’s longevity. Sure, the kills are still gory fun, and Jason looks amazing in this outing, but what keeps me coming back to this sequel of choice are the characters. Kaitan’s Robin is fantastic here as you can really see the wheels turning inside the character. She is going to fuck David by any means necessary! Even if that means changing who she might have been when she arrived at the cabin. She’ll smoke a little dope if it means time with the hunk. Hell, she’ll even throw her friend under the bus and straight up tell her she’s not good enough if it means she’ll get a piece of the young rocker. She’s believable as every girl that ever said no to me only to turn around and date my friends in high school. Needless to say as a young man I was smitten, as a (not so wise) 31 year old, the performance inspires.

Elizabeth Kaitan in ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night 2’

After my love affair with the Friday the 13th series started it didn’t take long before I ventured out into other genre franchises. I soon found myself seeing Elizabeth Kaitan pop up in various films, but the very first time I remember seeing her outside of Crystal Lake was on Garbage Day! 1987’s “Silent Night, Deadly Night 2” is not a favorite of mine by any means. But deep inside the film was a performance that the film did not deserve, but was awarded when Kaitan was cast in a supporting role as Jennifer. In a film that is comprised of footage reminding us how much better its predecessor was, Kaitan grounds the over-the-top film with a believable performance that makes you feel like you’re actually watching a great movie. Many years after seeing the film for the first time it taught me a lesson as an actor person in this crazy industry. If you commit to the role, you can’t really go wrong, folks. In many cases an actor is only as good as the material they’re given, true, but sometimes you realize the material is better when the right actor or actress is cast. I’m not tearing “Silent Night, Deadly Night 2” down. That is not my intention. But there is no denying that Kaitan is in a different film here. In a film full of characters that are interpreting the script in one way that doesn’t gel with me as a viewer, Kaitan hits all the notes perfectly in a film I think I would enjoy quite a bit.

‘Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity’

In a career that spanned two decades and includes 39 films, there is one film that I will go back to time and time again. “Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity” is not only, in this writer’s opinion, Elizabeth Kaitan’s best work on screen, but also one of the top films in the science fiction genre. Written and Directed by Ken Dixon, “Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity” transcends the B-Picture genre it found itself in. Like “Silent Night, Deadly Night 2” I believe this comes down to the performances. Unlike “Silent Night, Deadly Night 2”, everyone is on board with Kaitan in how the decided to play the material. Again, commit! On paper Slave Girls has about as good of a chance as any other bikini clad space flick from the 80s, but fuck if it’s not better than the majority of films to come out of the 80s. This film is not cheese for cheese’s sake. If you call it cheesy, we will exchange harsh words. Limited only by its budget, hence the rubber suits, early digital effects, and the castle walls wavering whenever bumped into, the performances of Kaitan and costars Cindy Beal, Don Scribner, Brinke Stevens, all the way down the cast list are superb. What Slave Girls lacks in on-screen monetary value it more than makes up for with a helluva lotta heart. In the film Kaitan plays Daria, a tough as nails woman that breaks her chains (literally!!) as a blonde victim and turns hero always finding herself one step ahead of the film’s heavies. And she’s funny to boot. I just love it. Her performance is tongue firmly placed out of cheek and played as serious as Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley here. In a low budget film it is so easy to wink at the camera and share a laugh with the audience, but for my money a true talent will put their head down and forge new ground when tackling subject matter in a serious and believable manner. Kaitan, and the entire cast, deliver. What strikes me most about the film 30 years later is how well it holds up. Seriously, check it out on Full Moon Streaming right now. This film is full of so much that made watching films in my youth fun. Action! Nudity! Spaceships! Killer robot servants! A sword fight! Battle armor! Come on! Dixon based the screenplay on Richard Connell’s short story “The Most Dangerous Game”. Fun Fact: Connell’s story has spawned, per IMDb, at least 18 film adaptations. Having not read the story as of this writing, I can not attest to how accurate of an adaptation it is, but I’m certain this is the only one that features Elizabeth Kaitan. So it wins hands down. I spent the majority of my teenage years fantasizing about endless sequel ideas. “Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity” is the world’s greatest untapped franchise in my 14 year old mind. Seriously, Charles Band, I got you, Sir.

Elizabeth Kaitan in ‘Vice Academy 3’

In ’91 Elizabeth Kaitan replaced departing Linnea Quigley in “Vice Academy 3” starring alongside Ginger Lynn, Julia Parton, Jordana Capra, and John Henry Richardson. Written and Directed by Rick Sloane, creator of the “Vice Academy” series, the film proved to be a comedic stepping stone for Kaitan who’s comedic timing thrived with the witty, satirical material provided by Sloane. Having starred in the fun “Assault of the Killer Bimbos” in ’88, and “The Girl I Want” in ’90, along with one liners here and there, Kaitan was certainly no stranger to comedy, but “Vice Academy 3”, really is a coming out party for the actress. I assume Rick Sloane had the same feeling as he continued to work with Kaitan for the remainder of the series. In most scenarios, as franchises go on, actors are replaced, a franchise will start to hurt and eventually fizzle out. But Sloane, Kaitan, series regular Jayne Hamil, and later Raelynn Saalman as ‘Traci’, turn that theory on its head. Each film together Sloane and Kaitan put their best foot forward and the audience is treated to solid efforts time and again. I love Ginger Lynn and Linnea Quigley in the first two films, but this is Kaitan and Hamil’s series. Kaitan proves once again that committing to your role is key, even when commitment is to over-the-top silliness. In the world Sloane has crafted, you buy it. These films are just plain fun. I wish we could get an in-depth documentary on the films a lá “Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th”, but I doubt we’ll see the day. Or will we? Mr. Sloane, if you’re out there…call me!

Elizabeth Kaitan, we salute you!

Since 2000 Elizabeth Kaitan has retired from acting, but has stepped back in front of the camera a few times to reminisce about the Friday the 13th films in select documentaries and bonus features over the years. Now married, Elizabeth Ruiz appears to have left the entertainment industry for good, but it seems she remains active in her community and continues to fight for the betterment of animals and toward stopping animal cruelty. I don’t think I’ll ever stop wishing for her return to acting. A bright star all these years later, her performances have taught not only myself, but many genre fans valuable lessons. To study her career would do any Hollywood hopeful a great service.

Halloween Knockers: Celebrating Haddonfield’s Most Memorable Racks!

Halloween Knockers: Celebrating Haddonfield’s Most Memorable Racks!

halloween-knockers-2016-1-feature

It’s that time of year again, folks. Leaves are changing colors, children of all ages are dressing up to battle rogue killer clowns while gathering as much candy as humanly possible, and horror aficionados are dusting off their VHS tapes to take a trip to beautiful Haddonfield, IL. Oh, and resident boobie guru J-Mo is back to count down the most memorable assets our old pal Michael Myers has encountered. If you’re new to this, let’s revisit the rules: 1) J-Mo can only choose one actress per film. 2) The actress does NOT have to appear nude. J-Mo appreciates boobs of all shapes and sizes, and he feels that a little mystery can be a great thing. 3) J-Mo is not a sexist pig. Breasts are great and should be celebrated. Free the nipple or something. 4) J-Mo hates writing in the third person, so why don’t we get this thing underway!

halloween-knockers-mariah-o-brien

10. Mariah O’Brien – Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)

Kicking off our list at number ten is the grunge princess of Haddonfield, Mariah O’Brien. Mariah plays Beth, the “have sex and you’ll die,” shock-jock lovin’ girlfriend of Tim Strode. Apparently Beth didn’t get the memo that the Strode’s have a rather short life expectancy in Haddonfield. Beth’s main purpose in the film is leading the cause to bring Halloween back to Haddonfield. I don’t know, Beth, when all seems quiet in the streets of Haddonfield, maybe you should leave well enough alone and head over to a neighboring town to celebrate. Word on the street is the Doyle’s haven’t been handing out those full sized snicker bars since 1978 anyway. Copious character flaws aside, Beth is one of the few in the series BZ (Before Zombie) to show some skin, and for that us fans will forever be thankful. Perky pokers aside, you’re annoying as all hell, and J-Mo don’t do crazy.

halloween-knockers-tamara-glynn

9. Tamara Glynn – Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

At number nine we have Tamara Glynn. After a recent conversation with Thomas Bryce of Shit Movie Fest I believe he is going to be very displeased with her ranking on the list, but I’m sure our friendship will survive this hiccup. Tamara plays Samantha Thomas, the typical peppy girl next door blonde type with a kooky boyfriend.

halloween-knockers-tamara-glynn-sexy

Her sole purpose in the film is yet again to warn children of the “have sex and you’ll die” mantra that horror films loved to spew at you in the 1980s. By the way, this is total bullshit and can be proved wrong by a handful of slasher films up to and counting “Friday the 13th”…#MakeHorrorGreatAgain…

Back to Tamara, she really is sweet in the film and is ready to take things to the next level with her silly boy-toy, but ultimately leaves much to be desired.

halloween-knockers-tyra-banks

8. Tyra Banks – Halloween: Resurrection (2002)

I know what you’re thinking…

halloween-knockers-tyra-banks-shocked

Listen… I know she is literally the worst part of a movie featuring Busta Rhymes kung-fu fighting Michael Myers, but two things. First: Diversity. Second…

halloween-knockers-tyra-banks-bra

Halloween: Resurrection is slim pickins, folks. I know technically I’m not supposed to judge the hangers by their work outside of the film itself, but you know they’re there. Unfortunately for the viewers of this supremely underrated sequel, Tyra finds herself in this position for the majority of her time on screen…

halloween-knockers-tyra-banks-confused

I’m not sure why she is so confused in this movie, or why she is so content on covering her best attributes up, but hey, jokes on me. She made the list and you got a visual presentation…Well played, Tyra.

halloween-knockers-sylvia-jefferies

7. Sylvia Jefferies – Halloween II (2009)

In at number eight is Sylvia Jefferies as Misty Dawn in Rob Zombie’s Halloween II. It’s no secret that I’m not an uber fan of any Halloween PZ (Post Zombie), but I will say I enjoyed his sequel effort more because you can kinda shut your brain off and not worry about much for the duration of the running time. Misty Dawn is about as scuzzy of a human you’ll find around Haddonfield. Sylvia’s part is small in the film, but it is a lot of fun. Mainly because WWE Superstar Michael Myers comes in and fucks shit up in such a laughable manner, one can’t help but wonder if the scene was written to be one of the greatest Kids in the Hall sketches of all-time. One might say Sylvia is the White Horse of the film. Would that make Daniel Roebuck the White Knight as he is riding her, plowing that ass doggy-style like a city employee ruining a Snow Day? WOW! Halloween II (2009) has just been saved!

halloween-knockers-pj-soles

6. P.J. Soles – Halloween (1978)

Yup, you totally read that right. P.J. Soles totally comes in at number six as Lynda van der Klok in the original Halloween. I totally know what you’re thinking, but I have to ask you, “see anything you like?” Totally! P.J. Soles totally deserves this spot on the list. Any of the girls from Halloween could have totally made the cut, but I can only choose one. Lynda is totally THE “have sex and you’ll die” character of the entire series. She meets her demise after totally one of the quickest bone sessions with her main man Bob. And to add insult to injury, Lynda’s gasps for help are totally confused for fake orgasms by Laurie. P.J. Soles is totally a treasure, and she’ll always have a place in the fans heart as the hippest chick in Haddonfield. Even if she always totally forgets her text books. Totally.

halloween-knockers-kristina-klebe

5. Kristina Klebe – Halloween (2007)

Oh shit, son! Back-to-back Lynda’s on the list! Kristina Klebe lands on the list at number five and we’re totally halfway done. Okay, so I think I used all the “totally’s” I can muster for P.J. Soles, so why don’t we just go back to a normal discussion about how amazing Kristina Klebe is in Halloween. More specifically how she is, I believe, the first full frontal nude of the series. Pretty awesome if it’s true. I don’t think I made that fact up. Fact check me, Internet. Kristina Klebe’s Lynda is not much of a departure from P.J. Soles’ Lynda, but I thought she was deserving of this higher spot as she was the only one of the three main girls in present day Haddonfield that didn’t make me want to punch kittens. Also, Klebe is one of the best actresses in film. Hands down. And she speaks German. Sign me up for those bonus points. Soles’ Lynda was there for the body count. Though Klebe’s is as well, and even knowing her fate before the opening credits even roll, she’s one of the few likable characters PZ. I would have put her higher on the list, but we;ve got some real Heavy Hangers…I mean, Heavy Hitters, coming up!

halloween-knockers-jamie-lee-curtis

4. Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later (1998)

Finally! Jamie Lee Curtis has made her way on to the list. And yes, it’s for Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later. Sure she had a set of lungs on her (Stu’s words, not mine) in parts one and two, but to me, Jamie Lee Curtis is way hotter in H20 than the original flicks. She is a maternal figure working at a school. She’s having this secret fling with the Guidance Counselor. Drinks a lot. Still need convincing? How about this…

halloween-knockers-jlc-true-lies

This is a photo from True Lies released four years prior to H20. But let’s focus on H20 specifically…

halloween-knockers-jamie-lee-curtis-axe

Jamie Lee Curtis as ax wielding Laurie Strode aka Keri Tate is one of the greatest images of the Haloween franchise. Their are two types of Halloween fan out there. The type that associates Jamie Lee Curtis with Halloween and the type that associates Danielle Harris with Halloween. Group B should not be trusted.

halloween-knockers-stacey-nelkin-header

3. Stacey Nelkin – Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

I had a real dilemma as to whether or not I could or should include Season of the Witch on this list. It is a departure from Haddonfield and Michael Myers, but I was reminded that when Tom Atkins goes to the bar, a commercial for the original Halloween is seen playing on TV. LOOP HOLES! Also, and this is more for my own sanity, I figured if I included Season of the Witch, I would not have to include each separate PZ cut. Not sure how that math works, but I’ll allow it.

Seriously though, folks, how adorable is Stacey Nelkin as Ellie Grimbridge. She had to be on the list for sure. I also want to give a shout out to the young lass for taking a chance on true lust with the great Tom Atkins. Not only is he why God made fathers, but he also likes to be thrilled. And with Stacey, Tom Atkins is plenty thrilled…

halloween-knockers-huh

You see Ellie teams up with Atkins to figure out the conspiracy behind the walls of Silver Shamrock. Conal Cochran not only has the coolest name in the entire series, but he’s out to kill a bunch of kids on Halloween with these…

halloween-knockers-masks

If you look close enough you can see Captain Kirk’s soul trapped in the Force. Meanwhile, Ellie decides to bunk up with a married alcoholic doctor and seduce him wearing this…


halloween-knockers-stacey-nelkin1

And when Tom Atkins finds out how old Ellie is, he finds himself in a pickle…

halloween-knockers-no


But don’t worry folks, they still have time to make sweet love in a dank motel room amidst all the conspiracy and wacky plot points. Stacey Nelkin would be number two on this list if Michael Myers were properly involved in this film in any capacity…

halloween-knockers-micheal

Awww…sad Michael.

halloween-knockers-pamela-susan-shoop

2. Pamela Susan Shoop – Halloween II (1981)

Speaking of number two on the list, Pamela Susan Shoop plays Nurse Karen in Halloween II. Dr. Loomis has shot Michael Myers six times, dropping him out a second story window. Haddonfield is in utter chaos. Police cruisers are taking out would-be-boyfriends at an alarming rate. Blackboards are being vandalized with ancient pagan words. Dana Carvey is railroading youths into commenting on the local news reports. But don’t worry, Karen wants to bang Budd in the therapeutic whirlpools while a room full of infants face certain unsupervised death. Hey, Karen is a good person though. She knows she is going to be late for work, but still keeps her promise and drives her friend home. That’s a solid move. Her friend could have been hit by a rouge police cruiser. Pamela Susan Shoop also falls victim to Michael Myers in one of the more gruesome deaths of the series. Her face is boiled as she drowns. Yuck. Talk about a twofer of suck. Oh, and she is topless the entire time. Quadruple-fer?

halloween-knockers-kathleen-kinmont

1. Kathleen Kinmont – Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)

And no surprise here, Kathleen Kinmont has the number one spot on lock-down. Mr. Skin has Kathleen in the books for 10 nude roles, but for reasons beyond our control, Ms. Kinmont chose to tease the Halloween faithful with major cleavage, epic side boob and sweet pokies under her “Cops Do It By The Book” white tee…halloween-knockers-cops-do-it-by-the-bookIn part four Kathleen plays Kelly Meeker, Haddonfield’s resident knockout and daughter of Sheriff Meeker, the town’s badass. Kelly has a thing for her co-worker Brady who is dating Rachel Carruthers sorta-sister to Jamie Lloyd niece of Michael Myers. One can assume that she is also another victim of the “have sex and you’ll die” rule, but before Brady can slip in the tip, Sheriff Meeker, Dr. Loomis, Rachel and Jamie pull in to the drive-way before Brady ever has the chance to pull out. I guess you can also safely assume that if Kelly is willing to hand out candy while wearing just a t-shirt to trick ‘r treaters before attempting to sleep with a co-worker in a complicated relationship, that she has had plenty of sex before and her death is justified in the series for being the town whore. Ah, the 80s. When slut shaming was common place and PC Police were still in Huggies.

Let’s take a moment to honor Kathleen Kinmont and her stellar work in the Halloween franchise…

Well folks, we did it. Another year is in the books and hopefully if you’ve made it this far you know that this is meant to celebrate not only the women that made the Halloween franchise great, but also to take a moment to give thanks to those kind enough to show their skin in cinema for the enjoyment of perverts across the globe. These days I get a little nervous when compiling a list like this, because it could be viewed as offensive in nature. When in reality it is meant to induce a chuckle or two. I hope you enjoyed the experience. Do you disagree with the choices? Was someone higher or lower than expected? Well reach out to me on any of my social media platforms so i can tell you that I don’t care to your face.
