Cult Classic Cuties are characters from some of our favorite cult classics and midnight movies who captured our hearts and/or actresses who got our attention but, sadly, never returned to these type of flicks or whose sexy stars shined only briefly, not quite achieving scream queen status. And this installment’s cutie is…

The Friday The 13th series has featured a lot of crush worthy young ladies during it’s…so far…12 flick run. One of the favorites has to be adorable Dana Kimmell as Chris in Friday The 13th Part 3. Not only is Chris a first class cutie but, she is a resourceful young woman having survived a previous attack by Crystal Lake’s favorite son a few years before the film opens. When she returns to the cabin near the site of the attack on a vacation with her friends, Jason tries to pick up where he left off and once again finds himself and the resilient Chris going one on one. Guess who wins?
While the third Friday flick is not her only foray into horror… she was in Sweet Sixteen and the TV horror Midnight Offerings before that… this was Kimmell’s only high-profile fright flick as a lead and her only other horror role was a small part as a model in the supernaturally themed Night Angel in 1990. Dana modeled and had done a few films and quite a lot of TV work before and after her throw-down with Jason and even played Chuck Norris’ strong-willed daughter in Lone Wolf McQuade, another cult classic of a different genre. Her last film role was in 1990 thought, she does do convention appearances as part of Friday The 13th movie panels.
