margot kidderMany people know Margot Kidder for her role playing Lois Lane in the ‘Superman’ franchise. But Kidder was also in some pretty outstanding horror entries from the 1970’s. Her horror debut was in 1973 playing twin sisters, Danielle and Dominique, in Brian De Palma’s ‘Sisters’. One year later she starred in one of my all-time favorites, playing college student Barbara, in Bob Clark’s ‘Black Christmas’. In 1975 she played Marcia, a woman who believes a professor may be her reincarnated dead husband in J. Lee Thompson’s ‘The Reincarnation of Peter Proud’. Probably the most commercially successful film in her horror list is Stuart Rosenberg’s 1979 film ‘The Amityville Horror’, where she plays Kathy Lutz. Her horror list pretty much ends in the 70’s, although she did make an appearance in Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 this year. A brief, but excellent list of titles Ms. Kidder! Happy Birthday from the Dungeon!
