For gay old school horror lovers, Ken Abraham is the one name in terror history that probably brings instant happiness.
Bursting with brash attitude and a compelling presence, Abraham brought star quality to such low budget genre epics as Terror Night, Creepozoids, Vampire Nights, Mind, Body and Soul and Vice Academy.
More significantly, to those of certain orientations, Abraham offered himself up as one of the few male cult icons who was confident enough to reveal as much flesh as his female co-stars.
Abraham’s most iconic image of nude frolicking is most likely from David DeCoteau’s post-apocalyptic monster flick Creepozoids (1987). As Butch, one of a band of weary survivors, Abraham finds momentary comfort from the dusty gloom by taking a much appreciated, rump baring shower with genre icon Linnea Quigley.
Two years later, in 1989 T and A thriller Deadly Embrace (helmed by DeCoteau under his Ellen Cabot pseudonym), Abraham once again rolled out the globule delights. As the hunky houseboy hired by a murderously, sex-minded society wife, Abraham found himself far from the noir classics of the 40’s. Yet, this cheesy, fun exercise allowed Abraham to show both his tender and cocky side and plenty of ass-cheek, as well.
Abraham continued to act in such genre efforts as Joss Whedon’s Angel and The Forgotten (with Julianne Moore) until 2004 when his successful career as an editor and producer began to take his full attention.
