Wow! That one was answered in the first two hours! I'd thought, with all the "newer" horror movies that apparently require some sort of sex to make it viewer-worthy, that it would be more of a stumper. Not true.
Yes, it was the Lynda, the blond (P.J. Soles) from Halloween released in 1978.
According to an interview with her last weekend on AMC, who was running some of the Halloween movies, that part was pretty much ad-libbed. They were trying to figure out how to open the scene where "Bob" (who of course, was the slasher, Michael Meyers) appears in the doorway. PJ said "I know" and grabbed a nail file, and soon uttered her most famous line.
In another aside, she was married to Dennis Quaid at the time, and he was asked to play the part of Bob, but was committed to another movie and couldn't do it. The guy who did, John Michael Graham, doesn't have another movie to his credit, according to IMDB. Guess Michael Meyers nipped his career in the bud.
REMINDER: You have just over 48 hours to pose a trivia question for me based on some horror movie you've seen. And since several of you don't watch the scary ones, I will open it up to your family members who do, to suggest a question.
In case you can't think of one, Mighty Mom has posed several extras! (Heheheheh. Joke's on her.)
Post by midnight Thursday night (this gives you two more nights to find a scary movie to watch) and I will have to post my answers by midnight Friday night. Saturday you can all come point fingers and laugh that I don't know so very much after all.
