why don't you start us off with a visual and
describe the place where you are answering these
It's the Christmas holiday
and a few days away from the New Year 2010 and
I'm in beautiful Lake Tahoe enjoying the skiing.
Elina, tell me
about your work as Claudette Barry in one of your
most recent films, 'Final Girl'.
Give me a teaser that is going to make it
irresistible to all the www.racksandrazors.com readers.
Girl' is a very exciting trilogy of films that is
set to shoot in Spring 2010. The teaser has to be
the confidentiality agreement I signed that I
will not disclose any information about it at
this point. I will tell you that Claudette is
someone to be reckoned with and not to be missed!
And I'm happily a part of them all. It's set to
be directed by Creep Creepersin whom I've become
good friends with and collaborated on a film we
recently produced that I star in called 'The
Corporate Cut Throat Massacre'. I'll keep you
posted on when that is out in the near future.
I also am
curious about your recently completed feature 'Orgy
of Blood'. What attracted you to
attracted to 'Orgy of Blood' for the sexy
concept. Not to mention I LOVE vampires.
You have a
number of horror roles in your extremely diverse
film resume - in addition to those mentioned
there is 'Creepshow III',
'Curse of the Forty-Niner',
'The Mummy's Kiss',
'The Hazing', 'Silent
Screamplay II', 'Psychon
Invaders', etc. What has been
your favorite on screen moment in and horror
flick and why?
favorite on screen horror moment was in 'Curse of
the Forty-Niner' (now known as 'Miners Massacre',
when I get killed by the miner -played by Vernon
Wells--whom I adore--when he throws a shovel
through a windshield and it goes right through my
throat and kills me instantly. it was a great
effect and my first time being killed onscreen.
I also must
hear about what it was like to work with David
Lynch on one of my favorite non-horror flicks
directed by David Lynch was amazing. He is so
intense and quiet and knows exactly what he wants
and how to inspire actors to do their best. it
was a great set to be on and watch and add to my
experience as an actress. I would love to work
with him again anytime.
Do you have
any other upcoming projects you want the
racksandrazors readers to know about?
I will be
a series regular on a show for the Game Show
Network that I start filming in January 2010. It
will be full and surprises and very funny.
werewolves, zombies, witches, creatures, aliens,
telemarketers...what does it for you horrorwise
Elina and why?
them all!! Well, not the telemarketers when I am
on the do-not-call list. The vampires really do
it for me though. Probably because my lineage
goes back to being related to Vlad the Impaler.
What was the
first movie to scare the shit out of you?
Exorcist'. I even think about it or hear that
music and I get the chills and suddenly do not
want to be alone. Scary, scary stuff!!!
pulling into the Elina Madison Drive In. What
three horror flicks are on the triple bill for
Massacre' (great effects), 'Creepshow 3' (it's a
classic) and 'The Corporate Cut Throat Massacre'
(it's brand new and not been seen yet!)
What is your
dream (or nightmare) horror movie role?
psychological thriller that stars me along side
Daniel Day Lewis--me playing his lover would be
ideal! Haha - but really; he is such a talented
actor that I would be honored to work with him.
best Halloween costume you ever had?
grade costume was a giant fifty dollar bill that
my best friend and I made from scratch and we
couldn't maneuver around at all in it and had the
best time. We won best costume.
you in real life?
energy and mean people.
