Academy Award-nominated actress. Roller boogie champion. Grindhouse goddess. Patron saint of animals. There are many ways to describe Linda Blair, one of the great horror and cult movie superstars of all time. To watch any of her movies, hear any of her interviews or meet her at a convention is to worship her for life. While everybody knows Linda from her iconic role in The Exorcist (1973), true fans know that she made some of her most fun, crazy, lovable (and, occasionally, fascinatingly awful) films after becoming America’s possessed sweetheart. Today’s article focuses on films that, intentionally or not, can be described as horror films. However, the true Linda aficionado should do anything to see films like Born Innocent (1974), Sweet Hostage (1975), Sarah T.: Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic (1975), Roller Boogie (1979), Chained Heat (1983) and especially the romantic comedy Up Your Alley (1989). When writing about Linda Blair’s career, describing a mere 13 films only scratches the surface.
And for the record, we're not putting The Exorcist in here because it's too obvious.
Every day this month we're bringing you a different Top 13 list from the world of horror. You can find them all here.
