Having just seen their documentary SLICE AND DICE: THE
SLASHER FILM FOREVER enjoy its U.S. premiere recently (see item here),
the team at High Rising Productions are exploring the feminine side of fright
in their next project, and gave us the scoop on it, along with exclusive pics
of some of the interviewees.
High Rising’s Calum Waddell tells Fango that SCREAM QUEEN:
HORROR’S HOTTEST HEROINES is on track to come out next year. “It’s an
all-female documentary that really espoutes the women’s point of view when it
comes to acting within a genre so often associated with masculine dominance or
the ‘girl in peril.’ There are no guys in front of the camera; we had no
interest in that. If you want to hear the male view on horror cinema, let’s
face it, you have plenty of places to hear it! So far we have almost 20
legendary names in the mix; it’s a really exciting project.”
Among those names are (pictured below, top to bottom):
B-movie legend Sybil Danning, first and fifth FRIDAY THE 13TH heroines Adrienne
King and Melanie Kinnaman, Patricia Tallman from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 1990,
2001 MANIACS’ Christa Campbell, SPLATTER UNIVERSITY’s Forbes Riley and PIRANHA
3DD’s Irina Voronina, plus horror hostess Elvira (a.k.a. Cassandra Peterson,
pictured above) and many others. We’ll bring you more on SCREAM QUEEN as it
gets closer to completion; see High Rising’s Facebook page here.
