Welcome ghouls and boys to the second chilling chapter of A Life in Blood: Tales of a Horror Queen. Horror truly is more than a genre, it is a lifestyle. I recently had a fun time at a horror convention in Virginia, and shooting some great films!
I was honored to be invited to be an official guest at Martinsville Horrorfest in Martinsville, Virginia. It was a real scream being among such horror icons as Kane Hodder, Linnea Quigley, and Robert Mukes! I had a lot of fun meeting some truly dedicated horror fans while in Virginia and I am so thankful for the love and support.
I recently starred in two films with Linnea Quigley; Adam Ahlbrandt’s Hunters and The Sadist. It was my first time being a guest with Linnea and it was great to see Kane and Robert again. Kane is such a jokester and Robert is surprisingly mellow and sweet. It’s always fantastic being a guest at a con with these two gentle giants since I am a huge fan of both of their work.
While in Virginia, I got to act in Running Away From The Unknown, a film by Dominck Calvitto, who played Skippy in The Toxic Avenger. It was a thrill acting with Walking Dead actors Santiago Cirilo, Jeremy Ambler, and Amber Dawn Fox. I also got to meet and eat tacos with the Toxic Avenger himself Mark Torgl.
I must of had The Toxic Avenger on my mind because when I returned to the New York City area later I got to shoot with Joe Nardelli for his film Toxic Tutu, a mockumentary of The Toxic Avenger. I am not allowed to say much, but I can assure you it was a tantalizing shoot! Look for Troma stars Mark Torgl and Lloyd Kaufman in this fun flick! www.toxictutu.com
TOXIC TUTU is the almost true story of what became of MARK TORGL, Melvin the “MopBoy” and star of the original cult-classic, horror comedy “The Toxic Avenger” and the truth of what really happened behind the scenes on the set of that film. This mockumentary feature film reveals for the first time ever why MARK TORGL went into public obscurity shortly following the release of the TROMA ENTERTAINMENT classic.

Then it was off to Pennsyvania to work on former WWE superstar Gene Snitsky’s 100 Acres of Hell and meet director Jay Lee (Zombie Strippers). This highly anticipated horror film from Walking Dead Films has amazing stunts and special effects. It is written by Jason L. Koerner, Jay Lee, Ed McKeever, and Gene Snitsky. http://www.100acresofhell.com/ I was lucky enough to watch one of the fight scenes for the film and it was spectacular! I have a sexy cameo in this upcoming film that fans need to watch for!
“When ex pro wrestler Buck Severs travels to an abandoned wildlife preserve with his friends for ‘Bro’s Weekend’, they become the targets of a deadly manhunt and Buck must find the fighter in himself before it’s too late.” (from 100 Acres of Hell IMDb) Check out the teaser trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwdv0UL-HuI
Thank you my ghoulish horror friends and tune in next month for more tales from my life in horror! Blood and gore awaits!
Yours in screams,
