Welcome ghouls and boys to another 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 shooting a cameo for Killer Waves with the great James Balsamo of Acid Bath Productions then it was off to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, voodoo, and to shoot I Was a Teenage Alien Mutant Cyborg.
I recently go to meet up with James Balsamo of Acid Bath Productions and work on his newest film Killer Waves. Balsamo and I first teamed up for I Spill Your Guts in 2012 and we have become great horror pals and frequent collaborators. Fans can look for me in I Spill Yours Guts, Cool As Hell, Catch of the Day, Bite School and now Killer Waves!
Killer Waves is about: A slasher is killing surfers to make a surfboard out of human flesh. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5241508/) This is a super fun horror comedy that fans of director James Balsamo are sure to love. Starring James Balsamo, Phil Anselmo, Chris Mulkey, Robert Maillet, Frank Mullen, Jake Hunter, Bob Socci, Robert Youngren, Robert Arensen, James Cullen Bressack, Chloe Berman, Mary C.

Then it was off to New Orleans for some warm weather and b-rated adventures. When I arrived I realized I had come during Mardi Gras! There were literally a few parades everyday and parties in the streets. While in the big easy I spent some time checking out the local voodoo. My first stop was The Voodoo Museum, where Cinnamon Black told me, ” I had a lot of love” and remembered me from my last trip. The museum has some really great displays and sells some very helpful products. If you are in New Orleans you need to stop by the Voodoo Museum. I also visited Marie Laveau’s tomb at Saint Louis 1 Cemetery, and stopped by the Voodoo Temple. I guess I had magic on my mind.
I was lucky to meet an artist, writer, actor, and horror fan named David Storm from an art shop in the French Quarter. Through him I met Benjamin Wood, Omar Manuel Peinado, and our director Lancelot Jean Mallia. We shot a really fun scene for I Was a Teenage Alien Mutant Cyborg in the historic Lafayette Cemetery. This is the same cemetary they filmed Double Jeopardy and Interview with a Vampire. With Omar as my cameraman, we were ready to shoot some great moments for the film.
I Was a Teenage Alien Mutant Cyborg: it’s 1954. Mad Scientists. Hostile aliens, an escaped cyborg, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Directed by Kevin Bingham, and Lancelot Jean Mallia. The cast includes Drew Rin Varick of American Horror Story, Serena Salieri, Benjamin Wood, Johnny Rock, Scott Carroll, Ladson Deyne, Lex ‘Machete’ McMahon, Gideon Hodge, Mel Mack, Nicholas J.
