Donna Hamblin is a Las Vegas based actress who is really making some interesting waves in the horror and B-movie community. As a muse of Ted V. Mikels she has starred in 'Mark of the Astro Zombies' alongside Tura Satana, Brinke Stevens, and Liz Renay, 'Demon Haunt', and 'Baptism: Cauldron of Blood'. Hamblin is also in line to star in the cult horror director's latest project 'AZ M3 Cloned'. Among her other titles are Steve Sessions' 'In the House of Madness', 'Shadow Death' with Tiffany Shepis and Felissa Rose, 'Killer's Mind' , 'Despair', the awesome sounding 'Killer Biker Chicks', and of course several projects pending. Donna was kind enough to take time from her busy schedule to talk a bit about Vegas, Mikels, and having her head bitten off.


  Hi Donna, thanks for chatting with us. Can you start us off at Racks and Razors with a visual and describe the room where you are answering these questions?

Welcome. I am in my Living room sitting on my oversize couch that's covered in leopard print pillows with my two dogs by my side. The CES convention is here in Las Vegas over the weekend so not many of us locals go out during this time; it's a zoo out there.

Why don't you tell me about your new film in production 'Satan's Little Sister'?? I didn't know he had any siblings.

What you don't know won't hurt you... ha ha. 'Satan's Little Sister' was a film I was cast as the lead in. It was delayed a short while and I had already made a prior commitment to Film in Mississippi therefore; I was unable to do it.

That's too bad. Give me a teaser for your 2008 film 'At the House of Madness' for Steve Sessions.? Tell me something about your work as Tracy on the film or about the film itself that is going to make it irresistible to all the Racks and Razors readers

'At the House of Madness' is an "on the edge of your seat, waiting to see what happens next movie". From the moment I received the script, I enveloped myself in Tracy's shoes because it was so well written. It's always fun to play a person who has two sides to their personality...I'm not telling have to buy the movie to find out. ha ha. You can find it on under Catacomb of Creepshows. I do have to add that Steve Sessions was a amazing person to work with as well as my dear friend, Luc Bernier. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

You've worked with Ted V. Mikels three times (on 'Demon Haunt', 'Cauldron: Baptism of Blood', 'Mark of the Astro-Zombies'). What makes working with him such a "fit" for you?

Ha Ha. Ted Mikels is a dear friend of mine; he is so much fun to work with. As an actor, he lets you have fun and experiment with your characters, which is always a plus in this business. I have developed a Worldwide fan base from working on Ted's movies, its always such a "High" when I receive letters from Italy, England, etc... I am in talks with him now about working on 'AZ M3' 'Cloned' playing the lead, "Stefani DeMarco" whom is a descendant of Dr. DeMarco in the original A Z. Stefanie has inherited his bad genes. It will be great fun to do this part that was portrayed by none other than the late John Carradine.

Speaking of 'Mark of the Astro-Zombies' - it also starred some amazing people like Tura Satana, Liz Renay, and Brinke Stevens.? Any good tales or anecdotes about any of the above three you would care to share?

It was a great honor to do filming with these women. Tura Satana is a legend in her own league.

I also want to hear a little about 2007's 'Sludge' with Tiffany Shepis and Felissa Rose.

'Sludge' has been re-named 'Shadow of Death' , which was filmed in the hills of Los Angeles (where the production resided). Steven Taylor was so great to work with, he is such a motivated person. Joe Castro whom did the special effects is in my opinion one of the most underrated people in Hollywood. This movie I actually got to have my head bit off (for the first time). It took me a couple of days and lots of hot tea to get my vocal chord's back to normal. During the filming, I got chills up my spine by the scenes being filmed, it's going to rock!

Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to let the Racks and Razors readers know about?

Of course, 'Despair' is a short story written by my close friend, Kelli Garni, it is a short movie about two people estranged from society that find friendship in each other. It has great bands by the name of Lynzee (out of southern California) along with Kelli Rhodes (out of southern California) as well as Random Eye from right here in sin city that are doing the music and sound track for. It's a very dark moving story and will be available on summer of 09. Also I have been filming with Regan Redding on a movie, 'Killer Biker Chicks'. He is a fan of the old Russ Meyers movies and films on that genre which is wonderful. I had to learn to ride a motorcycle, and do a Burlesque Fan Dance for that movie, which I thoroughly enjoyed. That movie should be wrapping soon. I am considering a couple other movies at this moment, just not sure If I can schedule them in order to do all of them.What was the first movie to scare the shit out of you?

'The Entity' ...and to this day I still haven't made it through any of 'The Exorcist' movies...

Back in the late 50s they had the series of movies 'I Was a Teenage Werewolf' and 'I Was a Teenage Frankenstein'.? If they were to make a movie about Donna Hamblin's teenage years it would be called 'I was a Teenage ___________________' because..........

I was a teenage restrained mountain girl being held captive. Because.....I grew up in a small town with mountains and just wanted to get out and experience life at its most... (Which I have).

Okay, we're pulling the car into the Donna Hamblin Drive In.? Which three favorite horror movies are going to be on the triple bill for tonight and what goodies are they going to be serving up at the concession stand?

The movies being shown are,,,
1- Steven Kings 'IT' ...that movie scared the hell out of me. 2- 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'. I couldn't sleep for nights after watching that one. 3- And the latest 'War of the Worlds' movie. At the concession stand you will find a Martini bar, a Juice bar, and at the fountain you can be served, type A, B, and O positive blood. (in small med and large of course..) And of course a chocolate fountain in the middle where you can just put your mouth under and let the melted chocolate pour in and down to your tummy...yummy. You will catch me in there watching the congregation of different personality's for my own entertainment.

So what are the best and the worst things about living in Las Vegas?

The best thing about living in Las Vegas is, It is a twenty-four hour town. So the fun never ends. The worst thing is that Las Vegas is a twenty-four hour town, and you do get tired once in a while.What scares you in real life?

I am petrified of the Dark.....
