did you make any New Year's resolutions for 2010?
don't actually make official New Year's
resolutions. I think mine actually happen all
year. I am constantly thinking about things that
I'd like to improve or change about my life.
Right now I think they'd be to save more money
and take more time to relax (like that's gonna
me about your film debut as Cathy Young in David
Gooslin's 'Cry: The Video Diary of
Calvin Ray Young'. How did that
role come about?
actually a long, but funny story that I will
probably never live down. It actually started at
the Fright Night Film Fest in Louisville,
Kentucky in 2008. I was attending the festival as
a horror fan and had seen on the website that one
of the featured films was produced by someone
near my hometown. I am from a very small town
and, since there was a fairly good chance that I
knew the producer, I thought it'd be cool to find
out who it was. I went to his table but he wasn't
there. I was chatting with the other people at
the table when this guy came bouncing over and
immediately I knew it was my old friend, David
"Goose" Gooslin, from college that I
hadn't seen in years! I blurted out, "You
made a movie?", and now the exclamation
haunts me. We caught up a little and I gave him
my e-mail. When October rolled around, I got in
touch with him to see if he had any fun Halloween
stuff going on. Goose said he had the perfect
part for me as the psychotic sister of the serial
killer Calvin Ray Young in the feature that he
was filming. Two weeks later, I am tied to a
wheelchair for 2 hours, screaming about killing
everyone within a 10 mile radius, making my
acting debut. After that, I was hooked.
I also want to
hear about your role in the upcoming horror film 'Red
River' with Tucky Williams. Give
me a little teaser that is going to make it
irresistible to all the racksandrazors.com fans.
actually have two roles in Red River, as a murder
victim and a snake handling religious fanatic. I
scream. I get my eyeballs pulled out. I handle
snakes and talk in tongues. What's not to love?
I see too that
you are going to be a guest at the Dark Woods
Horror Convention. Tell me a little about your
hopes and plans for that event.
actually fortunate enough to be both a guest at
that event and to be helping with the
organization of the event. This is the first
event of its kind in eastern Kentucky. Many of
the independent filmmakers and actors in the
Lexington/Louisville areas have family ties to,
or are originally from, this area. It's very
exciting that we can bring something that is so
important to us back to the area. There will be
many horror celebrities such as Michael Berryman
and my friend and Scream Queen mentor, Tiffany
Shepis, plus television personalities, wrestlers,
local celebrities and even a freak show. Fun for
everyone! Personally, I will be promoting several
of my available and upcoming films, including
C.R.Y., Killdo, Mountain Mafia, Red River, and
many other projects, as well as Infernal Dreams
and Deadpit.com. Of course, my favorite part is
going to be the Scream Contest! Plus I plan on
re-enacting my favorite publicity stunt gone
wrong by dropping a few Madagascar hissing
cockroaches down my shirt!
Do you have any other
upcoming projects you want the racksandrazors
readers to know about?
some very cool projects coming up including 3
television pilots and my first opportunity to
move behind the camera and become a producer with
Just Us League Films and 148 Productions. These,
however, are in the early development stages and
I can't discuss them too much further. Just stay
tuned to my website, www.heathermprice.com for all the
breaking news and details.
One project that I definitely want to mention
though is 'Lesferatu'. The name says it all.
'Lesferatu: Lesbian Chainsaw Vampires'. It's a
sci-fi vampire fantasy film and I play one of the
main vampires. There is currently a calendar in
production with the lovely ladies of Lesferatu to
promote the film and we'll start shooting in
being chosen the first Scream Queen of the new
decade (SQ of January 2010) from ScreamQueen.com.
How did that title come about?
you. I actually had no idea that I had gotten
than honor until you asked me that question. An
SQ actually has to be nominated for that, so I
want to thank all the people that support me and
nominated me for that award, and to the people at
ScreamQueen.com for selecting me.
as an "official" member of the scream
queen sorority imagine you are in charge of
hazing other girls into the group. What are some
of the things you would have the women go through
to ensure that they are SQ material?
would be pure evil to them. I'd have a Scream
Queen boot camp that puts the reality show to
shame. I'd probably make a lot of ladies cry.
Obviously, they'd have to be able to express the
vocal talent, but they'd also have to prove that
they can show the innocence in the beginning and
then come out with the edge to pull off looking
like a complete badass in the end. They'd have to
really prove they could be the total package. I'd
definitely scare the crap out of them about 100
times a day and break them down mentally so they
could show all the emotions. Plus they'd be
forced to endure hours upon hours of viewing some
of the best and worst that the horror film genre
has to offer.
werewolves, zombies, witches, creatures, aliens,
telemarketers...what does it for you horror wise
Heather and why?
telemarketers! Seriously, I totally love
EVERYTHING horror and paranormal related. I love
vampires because they are so tempting and
sensual. I have passed many hours having the slow
vs. fast zombie debate (you all know what I am
talking about!). I fully believe in aliens,
chupacabra and the Loch Ness monster. I even
ghost hunt as a hobby when I have the time. I
have just been fascinated with it all from a very
early age and it's deeply ingrained in me. I
could go on all day...
What was the
first movie to scare the shit out of you?
I am with
half the world probably when I say 'Poltergeist'.
I was three years old and was totally scarred for
And what was
the last horror movie you saw that really annoyed
would have to be 'Cloverfield'. All this
"shaky cam" style filmmaking that
everyone has jumped to makes me motion sick. How
can people enjoy your film if they get a migraine
and are nauseous? I doubt that's the reaction for
which they had hoped. When I hear a film is shot
that way, I completely avoid it.
pulling into the Heather Price Drive In. What
three horror flicks are on the triple bill for
tonight and what goodies are they going to be
serving up at the concession stand?
3? Well, if I only get 3, then I am going to go
with the classics, 'Psycho', 'Texas Chainsaw
Massacre', and 'Halloween'. I love the movies
that build suspense and started the genre. Then
we need lots of popcorn, nachos, Fun Dip and ice
favorite horror flick death scene?
so many but I am a big fan of the ones you don't
see coming. I think one of the best was the scene
from 'Final Destination' where the girl says
"You can all just drop dead" and then
steps in front of a bus. I sat for 10 minutes
going did that really just happen?
best Halloween costume you ever had?
I have a
whole closet full of ones I have worn over the
years. I think the best was when I went as Angela
from 'Night of the Demons'. I bought an old
wedding dress and veil and dyed it all black and
then had this crazy, dark makeup. It definitely
got me noticed.
you in real life?
puppets, dolls, cute, fuzzy things and anything
