Saturday Scream Queen: Mary Woronov

Mary Woronov got her start in show business as part of Andy Warhol's entourage, but it wasn't until she parted ways with Warhol (and drug addiction) that her career really began to take off.

Since her debut in 1966, Woronov has appeared in 90 or so movies, many of them horror films or black comedies. Among her best roles--even if the films aren't necessarily all that good-- are "Silent Night, Deadly Night" (1971), "Sugar Cookies" (1973), "Death Race 2000" (1975), "Hollywood Boulevard" (1976), "Eating Raul" (1982), "Blood-o-Rama" (1984). "TerrorVision" (1986), "The Halfway House" (2003), and "The House of the Devil" (2003).

In addition to her acting, Woronov is also an accomplished writer with three published books to her name.


  1. Also an artist - she paints - abstracts, I believe. She's always been on my list of hotties - despite somewhat offbeat looks. Nice choice! And Merry Christmas!

  2. Merry Christmas to you, too!

    I was unaware that she was also a painter. An all-around cool person in sounds like.
