Atlanta Film Festival 201 Spotlight: Foxy Femme Ellie Church


A bewitching leading lady of a new horror flick is not to be missed and Ellie Church makes for one very sensual Scream Queen. She is headlining “Frankenstein Created Bikers” which is premiering at the 2016 Edition of the Atlanta Film Fest. The exploitation genre is known for having a fiercely loyal cult following so expect the desirable Ellie to amass a wave of admirers. Adeptly meshing sexploitation, biker as well as splatter films into a torrent of subversive violence and imagery including a topless stripper hit squad, “Frankenstein Created Bikers” will undoubtably provoke reverberations in the annals of genre cinema.

She is also the star of “Mania” from the delightfully wicked and ├╝ber accomplished mind of Jessica Cameron who introduces majorly NSFW moments that will keep you coming back for more. As the more placid Mel, Ellie’s character is the perfect foil to her deranged lesbian lover Brooke (Trisan Risk) as the duo go on a lamb after a brutal killing. Kudos to both of them for gamely taking on the sex scenes and nudity that are prevalent in “Mania” as director Jessica Cameron has inculcated in them the vision she’s creating. Having also sizzled in the indie sci-fi flick “Harvest Lake” about a seductive otherworldly entity, horror fans will be ardently returning for more as Ellie does have a riveting plethora of features this year. She’s set to establish herself as one of the most beloved emerging actresses on the indie horror circuit.

Recognized as one of the most respected actresses of the modern era, YARELI ARIZMENDI has always been at the forefront of Latin cinema. Strong performances in dramas such as “Like Water for Chocolate” and “A Day Without a Mexican” has garnered adulation from all corners. Not only has YARELI embodied the kind of woman we see everyday so wonderfully, she lives and breaths the art of film-making. If you are making your way to the Dallas International Film Festival, she’s appearing in “Mariachi Gringo”, a tale of finding the passion in music and crossing borders to do it! Since my younger days, having a soft spot for Latin actresses was already inherent in me and it’s an honor to feature Miss YARELI on this very blog. Her versatility on screen has resonated with me and why not? This Mexican-born actress has an ethereal radiance that’s so genuinely divine, it’s a given to be in awe of such a talent.

I’m wishing for the chance to meet her in person and getting her autograph would be priceless. In fact, YARELI has also starred alongside Edward James Olmos in the amazing film “America” whom I also hope to meet one day. One only has to visit the YARELI ARIZMENDI OFFICIAL SITE to be astounded by the multi-faceted characters she has played over the years. Exuding sexiness as well as class, fans around the globe are bound to be captivated by her for many more years to come.
