Scarlet, you have a role in an upcoming film from NFTS Productions. Can you tell us a bit about the movie and your part in it?

Well, the movie, "You're Next 3: Pajama Party Massacre", is about two

 

beautiful young women having a pajama party and an uninvited "guest" shows up. Then it turns into a fight for their lives, kind of thing. It has an 80's sort of feel to it as well. A bunch of boobs, gore, fighting, comedy, AND ice cream! You know, the good stuff!

My character is a young woman who loves horror books and movies, oh and icecream. She can be funny at times and likes to give her friend Christine, played by Elske McCain, a lot of crap.

Is this your first horror film?

This is technically my first full horror film. Although, the weekend before we shot this, I did do a short part in Mike Etolls, "Mutilated Movies". I play a young girl who is fighting with her sister over who gets to read grandpa a bedtime story. One thing leads to another and the two of us girls end up not so pretty afterwards, haha. You have to see it to find out what happens to us.

Is horror a genre that you would like to continue to work in?

Horror genre is definately the one I want to stay in. I have always been a huge fan of horror, so now that I can be a part of it, I am definately persuing that dream!

You said "You're Next 3: Pajama Party Massacre" is your first full horror film role, but I heard a rumor that you are also going to be in "Resist Evil! Trilogy: Part 3". Is that true and is so what can you tell us about your role in that upcoming feature?

This so called rumor is....true!!! I will be playing a short role in the film! I can't give you much info on it at this time, but I may be playing something that’s.... UNDEAD! Hehe. It will be a blast. Part 3 is kind of like this: "Part Three: Don't Stop or We'll Die"
All the players have taken sides, and the final battle for world dominion begins. Plus musical numbers." To find out more, check out their myspace: www.myspace.com/resistevil

By checking out their myspace, you can see trailers to parts 1 and I think 2. At least check out what the other two are about!!

Do you have any other projects in the works?

As a matter of fact, I do! In addition to "Resist Evil! Trilogy: Part 3" I'm also going to be in Christian Hansons: "Create your own scratch-built corpse". Of course I'm not just an actress, I love modeling as well, so if you want to see some of my newest modeling work check out Horror-Movies.CA to see my photos there, oh, and be sure to vote for me too!!.

I also just finished a shoot for The Flesh Farm so you can check me out there as well!

 

Scarlet, I've heard that you're a big fan of the horror genre, is that true? If so what are some of your favorite horror films?

Yes! I am a HUGE fan of the horror genre! I have to watch at least one horror film per day to get my horror fix! Some of my all time favorites are (not in any particular order and most originals): Evil Dead's, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn and Day of the Dead, Return of the living dead's, Pet Cemetery 's, The Willies, Demon Wind, The Ice Cream Man, Prom Night's, April Fools Day, Aliens, Friday the 13th's, Nightmare on Elm Street's, Predator's, House's, Texas Chainsaw Massacre's, Leprechaun's, Exorcist's, Jaws, Amityville's, Candyman's, Puppet Master's, The Ring, The Howling's, Hellraiser's, Wishmaster's, Fright Night's, Silence of the Lambs, Ginger Snaps, Childs Play's, Poltergeist's, Stepfather's, Sleepaway Camp's, Halloween's and Witchboard's. Um, yeah! That's not all, but the ones on the top of my head, that are my favs!

Kind of following up on the film question, if you could have a role in one of those films, which would it be and who would you like to play?

I would love to be in Army of Darkness and play Sheila, the woman Ash falls for. That would be the ULTIMATE part! This is why: it takes place in the medeval ages, get to kiss Bruce Campbell, kidnapped by a flying zombie thing, turned into the undead, cause chaos, and so on. You know, the good stuff!! Muhahaha!!

So Scarlet, will your fans have any opportunities to meet you over the next few months?

Definitely! We're going to be screening "You're Next 3: Pajama Party Massacre" on September 14th at the Crypticon Horror convention in Minneapolis, MN. Plus NFTS, the folks behind the film will have a table there. Come by and see me, I'll be at NFTS's table both Sept. 14th & 15th ready to meet horror fans!

In October I'll be at the It Came From Lake Michigan Film Festival in Wisconsin October 25th -28th and I'll have my own table!! Plus we'll be screening "YN3" on the 27th at 6pm.
