Thankfully the emergence of indie horror films with females being the central focus have created a genre on their own with some calling it the rise of Feminist Horror. Exploitation hasn’t gone the way of the dinosaur but more and more, we get to revel in solid stories of the terror persuasion that for once doesn’t just bank on eye candy. Granted the women in “The Descent” were gorgeous yet they virtually drove the excellent story thereby creating a classic! Lucky McKee’s “Offspring” and its sequel “The Woman” uses its wildly, cannibalistic femme fatale to shocking effect. In the same resonating mold, “In The Pines” reminds me of “Carrie”, only this time jitters of the visceral kind take the place of telekinetic mayhem! Check out the spine-tingling trailer (above); The image of leading lady LESLIE GARBETT in the throes of a blood feast is as chilling as iconic Sissy Spacek all drenched in crimson red. The movie’s tagline says ‘Daddy’s Issues Are A Bitch’ or is it a case of cabin fever, a nightmare relived or even a murderous rampage. One thing is certain “In The Pines” has one of the coolest trailers around. Slick in its execution, the leads tread the disturbing gush of emotions convincingly with LESLIE a riveting vision in the most unsettling of ways.
If these are any indication of things to come, I’m sold and LESLIE is clearly a fantastic prospect. Being a stuntwoman as well, she’s in peak physical form and I also hereby proclaim her intense attractiveness. Check out LESLIE GARBETT ON TUMBLR in some of the sensual photo shoots she’s done….yup, she’s a stunning model too..:) In the great state of Portland, Oregon where acclaimed films “The Goonies” and “My Own Private Idaho” were shot, it’s a real satisfaction to come across gems such as the very enchanting LESLIE. Early signs indicate she shows ample promise as a strikingly, dramatic performer.
