Exploitation Women Spotlight #6

Tina Krause
Best known for:
"An Erotic Vampire in Paris" (2002)
"Vampire's Seduction" (1998)
"Vampire Vixens" (2002)

Tina was "discovered" at a Chiller convention in the mid-90s. She seemed to be attractive so the guys (or guy) over at WAVE asked her if she would like to be in a film. She said "yes" because she clearly didn't know what kind of movies WAVE was making. WAVE takes fetish requests and sells their no-budget nudie vids back to the public based on the requests. Once Tina did learn, she was totally game and subsequently adopted many monikers such as Tracey Lixx. They smartly didn't give her any time to think at that convention and shot her first video that very day. The rest is history.
Tina is actually an educated woman and has worked as a graphic designer and clothing model the whole time she has been an actress too. And boy has she acted in a lot. Through her New Jersey WAVE Productions connection, she began acting in EI Cinema movies in the 1990s and continued on taking bigger parts in their films through the end of its erotica days. Her career progressed with director Bill Hellfire's Factory 2000 fetish films and then the budgeted Seduction Cinema movies. Even after Misty Mundae (in the above picture) ended EI's heyday by ending her own career, Tina continued on doing every kind of low-budget cinema available. She is still WAVE's biggest star, but that can't be too rewarding of a position. What is rewarding however, is getting her own movie distributed. It turns out that during her EI Cinema days, she made time to actually make a movie of her own. It is finally surfacing just now.
It's gonna be released on VHS, but there's apparently only 50 copies. It is the first release from Mountain Oddities. Here's hoping for a wider release later on.
There's another recently released movie with Tina Krause and her friend the lovely Suzi Lorraine too.
Over the last two decades she has become a cult icon in b-movies. Her career high-point has to be getting to play herself in Frank Henenlotter's 2008 horror movie Bad Biology.
That's the poster. If you haven't seen it, it's a must. This girl doesn't look like she's slowing down anytime soon even though she is almost 42 now. Here's to a life in exploitation!
Can you believe the above picture?! That's right, a rare semi-clothed picture of Tina from an EI movie.
