Kristi, start us off with a visual and give us if
you will a description of the room where you're
answering these questions?
It's almost 8 p.m.
on a Sunday night, and I am working in my home
office sitting at my computer wearing my flannel
pj's... why?...because I can!:) I know...not
really that sexy, is it???
I want to hear
about your work in the upcoming film 'The
Dread'. Can you give us a teaser
that will make the movie irresistible?
scene...just kidding...:) I am the
"Admitting Nurse"...I have to admit a
little Hellion into Briarcliff Mental Institution
because it appears he slaughtered his own
parents.. As far as the real teaser...well, do
you remember The Sixth Sense? Not everything is
what it appears to be. Who is REALLY wreaking
havoc at Briarcliff? Muhahahaha!!!
did your role in 'Buddy Bebop vs.
The Living Dead' come about?
selected to play 'The Waitress' by the director,
Justin Cash Kirkpatrick. He had worked on the
crew of The Dread and decided to branch out on
his own and write and direct his own horror
film...I guess he thought it would be a comical
role for me...it is a pretty funny
role....remember Flo from the TV show 'Alice'
back in the day?...yeah, she's like that.
Can you give
us a plot synopsis of the film?
jockey Alan Freed coined the phrase "rock 'n
roll" to undermine the segregation of
popular music into black and white. From its
beginnings, rock 'n roll has been associated with
youth, rebellion, and anti-establishment. It also
has been associated with the advances in American
civil liberties, as well as a defining musical
The government has been conducting secret tests
aimed at pioneering space-flight, by using a
series of controlled atomic explosions the goal
is to successfully propel a spacecraft into the
cosmos, as a result very high levels of radiation
are expelled. The project has been classified as
There has been a problem.... Extremely high
levels of altered radioactive material have
leaked outside protected sectors. The possible
result of this accident could be catastrophic. A
temporary cover story is leaked to the local
press, but it's only a matter of time before
there won't be any way to hide it.
It's 1956 and anytown USA is about to become
anything but normal. Four friends are out having
a typical evening of unwinding at the area's
social hub, the roller-rink, a place filled with
magic moments and meaningful memories. Bobby, a
rebel wrapped in leather and blue jeans, the very
definition of cool. Rosie, she's Bobby's girl,
tough as nails but sweet as cotton candy. Jimmy,
a closet bookworm just trying to fit in and the
new guy in town. And Peggy Sue, cuter than a pail
full of kittens, along for the ride and in over
Performing live at the roller-rink is a yet
unknown musical marvel, one of the first real
rock 'n rollers, Buddy Holly himself. Buddy is in
trouble, he's been on a losing streak and owes a
bundle he doesn't have to the local hard-nosed
book-maker.... and it's time to pay or pray.
On the knife's edge of town the dead have begun
to rise, re-animated and un-living, a terrible
side-effect of dangerous experimentation. The
music and squeals of joy coming from inside the
roller-rink draws them near with a powerful
Soon they'll be inside and then there's no
stopping them. Soon all hell will break loose in
an unimaginable cornucopia of gore, violent
grotesqueness the likes of which no one has
imagined. Soon they'll have killed every last
man, woman and child in this once quaint, quiet
little town. Soon, a man and his brand new '55
Strat Sunburst will make a stand....
Can Buddy and his rag-tag team of survivors quell
the Zombie onslaught? Will Buddy live to see his
first #1 record?
All these questions and more will be answered in;

accompanied your title of Scream Queen of the
Month for August 2007?
met you fine people! I have gotten a lot more
popular in this horror genre...it's funny...not
that I don't love horror movies, because I do! I
just never thought that I would be involved in
making them one day...
Do you have
any other upcoming news or roles you would like
the https://racksandrazors.com/ readers to know about?
Well, I actually
just received the title of Mrs. Kalamazoo County,
and I am running for the title of Mrs. Michigan
in March....how is that for a stretch??? From
Scream Queen to Mrs. Michigan? Wow!!!
What was the
first movie you saw that scared you enough to
make you sleep with the lights on?
about 4 or 5 years old and my older sister was
babysitting me....she made me watch a movie that
had these 'monkey-like' monsters living in the
fireplace or something??? Gosh, I wish I knew
what the name of it was...Oh, and then there was,
of course, The Exorcist!!! Ugh!
the car into the Kristi Fitts Drive In.
a. What three horror flicks are on the triple
bill for tonight?
Stoker's Dracula, The Others & The Sixth

are brilliantly written scary movies!

Rolls, Diet Coke and Krispy Kreme doughnuts!

sort of behavior will absolutely not be tolerated
from the patrons?
talking! I HATE that!!!!!!!!!!!! ( you can

what horror class of character does it for you
Kristi and why?
ghost stories!!! I have no idea why...I just have
a fascination...I am hooked on the TV Show, Most
Haunted...I am literally glued to the set looking
for orbs and listening for supernatural voices
with the volume turned up all the way on my TV!
you in real life?
was the best costume you ever had for Halloween?
As a kid,
I was always an Angel (because I am a Preacher's
kid:). Sometimes I got to be a gypsy and got to
wear a lot of make-up....I thought I looked HOTT!
I was never anything gory...Now, I still like to
dress up and be glamorous like Marilyn Monroe...
Do you have
plans for Halloween this year?
Here is where I plug my new movie The Dread... It
premieres here in Kalamazoo, Michigan, at the
'Little Theatre' on WMU's campus Halloween night
