Tag: #Scream Queen
Here at 365, we love to keep our finger on the pulse, under the skin and ahead of the game when it comes to promotion of fresh blood. We understand that the team working on Five Flee in Terror are about to offer a stand out role to Stevie-Louise Ritchie. The Scottish glamour girl looks set to put away her hair spray and make up in favour of hatchet and chainsaw; ready for open season on the undead.
This could be a great opportunity for the young starlet, with Five Flee looking to be one of the most exciting films of the genre to be shot on UK soil in quite some time, a film described as Goonies meets Flesheaters. We look forward to seeing what she has to offer and seeing the dawn of a new Scream Queen.
Lianne Spiderbaby is a leading authority on the horror genre, writer for Fangoria, Cineplex, Famous Monsters, FearNet, Film Journal International and Video Watchdog magazine. Her new book, Grindhouse Girls: Cinema’s Hardest Working Women, an in-depth look at the infamous exploitation actresses of the 1970s and 80s will be available from St. Martin’s Press, soon.
She’s the host of Fright Bytes and also holds an honors degree in Film Studies, University of Toronto. This is why, she in honoured by 365Horror as Scream Queen.
This week’s Scream Queen focus is Jessica Cameron, the former fashion student from Canada, turned horror goddess. For us horror viewers, it was a great choice of career change. She’s been very busy for the past few years with such underground recent classics as Hell-O-Ween, Resurrection, Camel Spiders, and The Black Dahlia Haunting. The remake of the 80’s Santa Slashing flick, ‘Silent Night’ propelled her into a wider audience of weekend horror viewers which has opened up a whole bunch of roles currently in production including the eagerly antisipated Virginia Obscura, a film of bloody revenge at a twisted family reunion. We also have Russ Williams Californian, backwoods, monster flick, ‘The Beast’ which sounds stunning.
Jessica Cameron has hit the ground running and it looks like she’s in for a marathon. Check her website here and follow her tweets for genre related info and general LA life. @JessicaCameron_
365 will be looking out for an interview, hopefully soon.
