Kimberly was also kind enough to take time out from her busy schedule (and her birthday celebration!) for this exclusive interview.

  Happy Birthday Kimberly! Did you make any birthday wishes this year?

Thanks! -To drink champagne all night and avoid the hangover! I got half my wish. :)

Kimberly, why don't you start us off with a visual and describe the place where you are answered these questions?

Actually, I'm getting ready for my annual church visit in my hometown of New Albany, IN. Christmas Eve mass with mom... I do like to multi-task!

Let's talk about the Michael J. Hein/R. Zoe Judd movie 'Devil's Grove'. How did you get cast as the lead character Katie Kyle?

The writer of the script, Rick Amburgey, sent me a message via Myspace about the auditions. I guess he did a local actor search? I almost didn't go since auditions were two hours from where I lived at the time, but I'm very glad I gave it a second thought!

What attracted you to the role of Katie?

I liked that she is genuine and sincere. She's a good girl at heart, but has a bad reputation. She struggles to find her identity, which to me, made her character realistic and easy for anyone to relate to.

Give me a little teaser about 'Devil's Grove' that is going to make it irresistible to all the racksandrazors readers.

Devil's Grove is the ultimate indie torture movie! When a group of teens set out to record a documentary film about mass murders at a local amusement park, they soon learn that certain things should be left alone. I take pride in saying we kill a child, have one of the best castration scenes ever filmed, girl-on-girl action, and much, much more. We go there!

What are your favorite and least favorite amusement park rides?

I love roller coasters! The more bad ass, the better! I'm not a huge fan of the Ferris Wheel or that swinging pirate ship ride.

I also want to hear about your experiences in a couple very high profile films you've made recently. First off, you play Happy Hour in Steven Soderbergh's 'The Girlfriend Experience'. Tell me about that experience.

It was awesome! I had a very short four hour shoot day which was nice. Soderbergh was very professional and knew what he wanted so we were in and out of there fast. We were filming a scene at a bar which was not scripted and all improv. Needless to say, the scene became very interesting!

I also want to hear about your role as a club dancer in Jon Avent's 'Righteous Kill' with Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, and 50 Cent. And tales from the stage about that threesome or the experience you would care to share?

Now this was a loooong day! It was great working with all three of them. 50 Cent was very polite and professional unlike his hard rapper reputation. DeNiro was more concentrated and kept to himself. I probably talked to Pacino the most. He kept the atmosphere light and was very welcoming to his fans. He was also much shorter than I had previously thought.

Do you have any other upcoming projects you want the racksandrazors readers to know about?

I am now working regularly on the TV. show "Rescue Me" and just completed a commercial for Gold's Gym. I also just wrapped on the horror flick, "Elvis Saint Psycho".

Vampires, werewolves, zombies, witches, creatures, aliens, telemarketers...what does it for you horrorwise Kimberly and why?

Ghosts and demonic spirits get me every time. The Catholic schooling must have scared Satan out of me. Not to mention, how do you defeat a ghost?!

What was the first movie to scare the shit out of you?

"The Exorcist" terrified me! I was ten years old and in my first play. The entire cast kept telling me how like much I looked Linda Blair. So I had to rent the movie, right?! I don't think I slept well for an entire month.

Okay, we're pulling into the Kimberly Magness 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?

"The Exorcist" (for the reasons fore mentioned), "Maniac" (It's classic, twisted, and realistic), and "The Ruins" (just because it's gory, a little out there, and not your clich'e horror movie). The concessions would have Caesar salads and a full bar.

What is your dream horror movie role?

I would love to get bloody and/or tortured! I have also always wanted to be a zombie. Something that requires lots of makeup and blood. I like to get down and dirty! However, I would also love to play the killer. I have a psycho side of me that no one has got to see yet.

What's the best Halloween costume you ever had?

This is a tough one! I never dress as anything scary. It's the one time of year you can dress like a skank and get away with it. I take full advantage of this. I usually do rock stars; Madonna, Britney, Amy Winehouse, and from this past Halloween, Lady Gaga (which was pretty amazing, I must say)!

What scares you in real life?

Needles! I have to be prescribed a valium for any doctor's appointment involving shots or it's light's out for me!
