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. This month things went in a really amazing direction! I was invited to be a guest at Amazicon, a pop culture convention in Delaware and my directorial debut, Attack of the Killer Chickens is getting a lot of attention at film festivals!
At Amazicon I had the honor of being a featured guest along side so many legends of pop culture: Lee Meriwether, Felix Silla, Priscilla Barnes, Jim Krut, Sharon Ceccatti, Mike Christopher, Leonard Lies, Jeremy Ambler, etc.
It was amazing getting to chat with the great Felix Silla, who has appeared in classics such as Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Brood, Battlestar Galactica (1978-1979), Demon Seed, The Kentucky Fried Movie, The Addams Family, Star Wars, Planet of the Apes, and more! Silla has a great sense of humor and is a really great all around guy. This horror queen is a huge fan of his work.
I spent some time with the zombies from Dawn of the Dead: Jim Krut (helicopter zombie), Sharon Ceccatti (nurse zombie), Mike Christopher (Hari Krishna Zombie), and Leonard Lies (Machete Zombie). I have known Jim Krut for awhile since we’ve been guests at a bunch of fun horror conventions in the past and he is a always a great person to see. Speaking of zombies, Jeremy Ambler, a zombie from The Walking Dead was there too. I recently shot Running Away From the Unknown with him in Virginia, which is a film we are both actors in.
It was a great honor being a guest at Amazicon and meeting so many fans of my work. I an deeply grateful to everyone that came to see me and to Amazicon for having me there.
This horror queen decided to step outside of her comfort zone and direct her first short film! So I recently wrote, directed and starred in a crazy comedy/horror film lovingly titled Attack Of The Killer Chickens! My cast and crew included some of the most creative people I know: Edward X. Young, Rocco George, K.J. Hopkins, Nick Petito, and Pamela Martin! Each person brought a unique talent to the film and I am so thankful for their work.
I am so grateful for all the support for this film! At this point I am screening it at film festivals and conventions plus I have a limited number of copies available for fans. So far the film was nominated for Best Screenplay at The Northeast Film Festival Horror Fest in Teaneck, NJ, came in second place for Best Concept at The Brightside Tavern Film Festival in Jersey City, NJ and nominated for Best Concept at the Hang Onto Your Shorts Film Festival in Asbury Park, NJ!
“It’s the dawn of a new age. A chicken age! Attack Of The Killer Chicken! It’s the Citizen Kane of crazy chicken films!”
Yours in screams,
