|REYNA YOUNG – Miss Misery and Hostess Of A Nightmare To Remember|
You most certainly can call Reyna Young a Woman To Remember..:) Her passion has propelled A Nightmare To Remember, her film fest where darkness and seduction reign supreme to the forefront of independent horror. Having been the seductive hostess for this convention 4 years running, Reyna aka Miss Misery has been your enigmatic guide to all things terrifying that strike fear into our hearts. This year on June 18th, she has assembled a luscious group of special guests and a film selection that will cater to all your needs….the bloody and gory kind of course. Just like the Devil’s Pitchfork, Reyna has join forces with vixens Megan Franich and Debra Lamb to from the enticing threesome I affectionately coined ‘Trident Of Horror Hotties’. Reyna should be lauded for being an inspirational figure for giving us a night’s worth of wicked macabre.
|MEGAN FRANICH – “30 Days Of Night” Fame and Special Guest|
The ethereal doll Megan Franich is my first ever feature on a New Zealand Actress and what a thrill a minute she is…:) Renowned as Iris, the goth female vamp from “30 Days Of Night”, she conveyed the fierce animal instincts of a predator and a foreboding of terror that gets under the viewer’s skin. Even in her ghoulish form we felt sympathy as her character met an untimely end. Audiences were mesmerized by how scarily similar her portrayal in the movie was to the illustrations of Iris as depicted in the graphic novel. Check out her amazing reel (above) that showcases the onscreen potency we all know she has. Besides her comely accent, Megan’s flawless pale skin and minxish features are some of the attributes that make her so uniquely sexy. This attractive Kiwi champions being a chameleon and experimenting with extremes in her projects affirming her versatility as an entertainer.
|DEBRA LAMB – Scream Queen Legend and Special Guest|
Considered as one of the most striking B-Movie Queens of all-time, Debra Lamb has headlined countless films most notably her outstanding performance in the under-rated “Evil Spirits”. From post-apocalyptic tales to grisly slashers, it has been said that Debra exuded a kind of magic that was such a rush for the best part of a decade. The fact that she went topless in several softcore movies shouldn’t go unnoticed too as her sin-sational toned body and nubile sauciness made her the fantasy babe for many. She was after all, an exotic dancer and a Playboy Cover Girl. While I didn’t get as much opportunity to sample her sexy self (back in the day censorship when was rife in Asia), I can see why she’s revered for being an erotic force throughout her career. She clearly contributed to numerous defining moments in the horror genre. Presently, Debra is a well-known physic healer helping to relieve our stressed-up lives but plenty out there are clamoring for Debra to make her long awaited comeback with rumors swirling.
FEATURING SAGE HALL IN “CANDY”
The delicious trailer for “Candy” is a must see as its leading lady Sage Hall amps up the sensuality in this sweetest of horror shorts. Unquestionably, she has her amorous ways to get us excited especially seeing how voluptuously slinky she is in those black camisoles. Playing an overprotective mother who has a penchant for baking goodies, she really has some tasty treats in store…:) While this feature smacks of invigorating nostalgia thanks to the brilliant Sage who functioned as both the director and star, it has a distinctive tone that stands on its own merit. Sage is a heady combo of blue-eyed blonde bombshell and enticing innocence. Don’t know about you, but there’s just something about sexy cuties like Sage that I can’t get enough of. Blossoming nicely into one of independent film’s newest prospect in front and behind the camera, this is an up and comer we want to hear more about. She possesses a drive to make her mark on the indie scene and it won’t be long before this honey has everyone eating out of her hands…:)
FEATURING BROOKE LEWIS IN “SPRINKLES”
In the coming months, actress/producer/writer Brooke Lewis is going to be ever present in some of the most fascinating projects independent horror has to offer. Her fans already know her as Ms. Vampy, her alter-ego with seriously foxy bite that has became a huge hit. Taking on leading roles in highly anticipated features “Archaic Redemption” and “Mondo Holocausto” will surely see her popularity rise even further as she welcomes us into her luscious world. This Buxom brunette and photogenic beauty has tons of sass to captivate viewers for days on end. Having started her own company Philly Chick Pictures to produce entertainment with an attitude (in her words), she’s just as influential behind the scenes. Sprinkles is her newest short psychological drama/thriller that has her playing a High-priced call girl, Maura who has a seemingly chance encounter with a client, Gary (Don Danielson), while on a business trip that will take them on journey of dirty secrets, fetishes and revenge…WOW! Brooke has got me hooked!
You have to love a gal who tells it like she sees it and F**K with people who aren’t hard core horror fans on Twitter. I also recently listen to DAI GREEN on Blogtalkradio as she pointed out the shortcomings of the 2011 AFTER DARK Originals and why some of the films doesn’t do justice to the spirit of the series. Having followed AFTER DARK Horrorfest through 4 iterations, there’s a sense that commercialism has slowly suffocated the festival’s indie cred. From always giving viewers 8 Films To Die for, this year it would be a surprise if half of them manage to live up to the hype! It’s enlivening to see DAI GREEN who’s an influential industry insider giving us her razor-sharp perspectives on horror whether as the Head Mistress for HorrorNews.net or as an entertainer/fan. Awarded Troma Entertainment’s Tromette of the Month for the month of April 2011 is a testament to her incredible contributions, in the process reiterating that women of horror should be recognized thus ridding the world of the ‘gina stigma (in her words). Widely regarded as one of the foxiest internet journalists around, her one-of-a-kind DAI OF THE DEAD column examines horror at its most stirring. None more so than her review of highly controversial gorefest “A Serbian Film” which I found thought-provoking! Haters are saying it’s propagating child pornography but DAI touches on the need to separate fiction from fact and why hypocrisy is rife when there are more questionable movies out there that haven’t gained such vicious backlash! Critics and so-called puritants should wake up and be mature enough to tell the difference between what is inferred on screen and what’s reality!
It’s great to be in contact with Terror Hotties as this close-knit community of talented ladies have been a great source of inspiration for me as a blogger. Seeing Dai Green in the company of fellow Horror Mavens such as Reyna Young, Rebekah Herzberg, Shannon Lark and Eileen Dietz among many others is such a thrill! Evidently I’m captivated by everything she has to say or has written as DAI offers valuable insights often in the spiciest of ways. With several indie projects brewing, DAI is set to be just as stimulating. It’s time we join the movement called ‘DAI ‘ism’…:)
