Welcome to Bit-O-Sexy, a column designed to turn you on to horror by featuring images, trailers, products, and whatever else I deem worthy of being called sexy. Now, in the case of this column, anything deemed sexy is not always going to be sexy in the traditional sense, but will always focus on cool horror related people, pictures, trailers, and things.
Man, one of these days I will get into more of a rhythm with these things. I know I like to write them, I know you like to read them. Consistency is the key, right? In any case, here I am with a brand new Bit-O-Sexy for your eyeballs. Can you handle it?
This column centers itself on one Asia Argento. If you do not know who she is, you should. If for nothing else than she is the daughter of horror royalty. Her father is Dario Argento, one of the masters of Italian horror cinema, with such movies as Suspiria, Deep Red, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Inferno, Phenomena, and many others to his credit. Her mother is Daria Nicolodi, an actress known for such films as Suspiria, Deep Red, Tenebre, Beyond the Door II, and Opera. Then there is Asia’s full name: Aria Asia Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento.
Asia is an actress, writer, director, and tattoo aficionado (I am assuming the last bit), and absolutely stunning. The closest to the mainstream she has gotten was her role in George Romero’s Land of the Dead, or perhaps when she was in xXx alongside Vin Diesel. However you want to cut it, she is quite talented and, again, stunning.
I met her at a convention a few years ago, hers was the only table with a line as we awaited her arrival. When she entered the room, everyone fell silent, all eyes were on her. She completely commanded the room. It did not matter where you were, a fan, or a celebrity, everything fell silent as we all watched her walk across the room to her table.
There is no shortage of pictures out there of this beauty, from her modeling work to her movies, to walking the red carpet. Here are but a few:
And here are a couple from when I met her:
