|Scarlet, I hear you are a huge
horror movie fan and specifically recall reading
about your Friday the 13th
movie marathons. So, of all the gruesome ends in
the Friday the 13th films which one is your fave?
nice!! I would have to say my favorite ending
would be in the first Jason when his mom, Betsy
Palmer, gets her head hacked off! That effect was
just so kick ass!! They're all equally awesome
Tell me about
the movie you are filming 'Tales
of the Dead'. Give us a teaser
that will make us hungry to see it.
play a small part in the 4 part film. I'm in the
story 'The Radio' which is kick ass! Let's just
put it this way, I'm the one that makes this
radio possessed and that's all I'm going to say,
So I also know
you are playing a character named Deb Hill in it.
Is that a sort of tribute to Debra Hill the late
great producer of 'Halloween',
'The Fog', 'The
Dead Zone', etc?
what, it could be! Honestly I didn't even know I
had a name in it till recently. I originally was
just a sacrifice in the film, but then the
director decided to give me a name in it.
Whatever works!! Now that you bring it up, that
name is probably a tribute because the director
is a huge horror movie fan!! Sweet!
me about your character Jennifer and how she fits
into the goings on in 'Your Next
3: Pajama Party Massacre'.
is the more "grown up", kind of
"up tight" of the two of us, I guess
you could say. My friend Christine, played by
Elske Mccaine, is more the partier/druggie in the
film. Alls we ever wanted was to eat icecream,
watch horror movies and tell scary stories.
Besides all of that, we had an unexpected
visitor!! Its great!! That was actually my second
film ever, with Mutilated Movies, by Crepuscular
Planet films, being my first! What an experience.
Do you have
any other upcoming movie projects you would like
to let the Racks and Razors readers know about?
I have a
few! These are the confirmed ones. One called
'Homicide' an ode to the 80's slasher films by
Trixie and Dixie Productions which will be filmed
in June. Another film is by Roklaf Studios called
'Resist Evil Trilogy' and I'm in the 3rd part,
which will be filmed in later May. One that I'm
currently working on is by Merle Productions
called 'Trinity'. Like I said these are the
confirmed ones so far. Many more in the works as
we speak so keep your eyes and ears peeled for
I also have
seen you have been making the rounds at some of
the horror conventions. What has that sort of
experience been like for you?
freaking LOVE horror conventions!! I actually
just got back from on in Denver which is also a
Sci-fi convention. I made so many new fans and
friends its ridiculous! It's just so cool being
around people that are into the same things as
you are! How rare is that!!! The more the better
if you ask me!!
What have been
the perks of being Scream Queen of the Month for
My major perk for
that is self gratification! I've always been into
horror films and by being able to say I'm a
scream queen is just the coolest thing ever! Not
only that, I'm a Tromette for Troma too, which
makes it that much better!!!
So as a little
girl growing up in Minnesota is there some memory
you look back upon and think, "Yep, that
little girl was destined to grow up to be a
when I was younger I was a bit shy. Yes, I was
shy!!! The funny thing is you read all these
interviews of actresses and such and almost
everyone you read about was shy at one point in
their lives if not still to this day! Getting
back to the question, the only thing I can think
of is my very first horror film, Childs Play,
when I was around age 6 or so. Ever since that
film, that's all I wanted to watch was horror! To
me, horror films were a gift from God, hehe! So,
to be a part of that is a dream to me!! I hope
that answered it!!
that. Are you planning a relocation anytime soon
or is Minnesota actually a pretty good place for
a scream queen to be located?
B and Independent films, MN is a great place for
that!! I've noticed there's not much competition
up here, at least for horror anyways, which makes
it easy to get "gigs". Not only that,
everyone works together here! I've worked with
the same great people in a ton of projects
already. We all just want to make art and have a
great time, that's what counts the most
sometimes. I'm venturing out to other states to
do films as well. I want to get out there and try
new states and stuff like that! I've already done
a film in Iowa, 'Afterbirth' by LiveBoulevard
Design. The 'Resist Evil Trilogy' is being filmed
in Iowa as well. More upcoming projects of mine
will also be out of state, Wisconsin and Nevada
are a few.
Do you recall
the first movie you saw that ever made you scream
but I can guess. I think it was 'The Exorcist'.
At the time to me, that movie was so scary, now I
just go to bed with that film playing in the
pulling into the Scarlet Salem Drive In. What
three horror flicks are on the triple bill for
Evil Dead, and Day of the Dead!!
are they going to be serving up at the concession
Popcorn, tons of different candy, icecream, you
name it, it'll be there!!!
And what will
not be tolerated from patrons?
smoking of any kind!! I can't stand that!
you in real life?
to be cheesy!!!!!! What literally scares me is
centipedes!!!! Ewwwwwweeee!!! There was one in
the sink in this bathroom at my day job and I
almost had a heart attack!!!!!! Yucky!! Pretty
much anything that has tons of little legs,
crawls, and is a bug!
