Tiffany Shepis Tells Us About Her Role In Killer Kate!



No matter how many times we speak to the lovely Tiffany Shepis regarding whatever her latest project might be, one thing’s for sure: you can guarantee that it will be one of the most entertaining interviews you could have. The scream queen’s most current project will be in Elliot Feld’s Killer Kate!, and she was all to obliging to spill some details about her role, as well as what she’s got lined up next – read on and enjoy!

DC: Tiffany, what can you tell us about the film and your character?

TS: Killer Kate is about a bunch of girls that go to have a bachelorette party in a secluded but awesome home that they rented on a house-sharing website, and they got this crazy-ridiculous deal. There’s a fractured family, and the sister’s getting married…and well, the people that own the house aren’t the best people, which is my character’s family, and we’re going to make this bachelorette party not-so-awesome for these girls.

DC: Now I’m sure that Elliot Feld is familiar with your body of work, so was it him letting you go all out, or was it a bit more structured than that?

TS: Well, it was a little bit of both – they came to me with the plot, and I said “oh my god, this is super funny!” It’s very much like a Shaun Of The Dead kind of project – lots of blood and guts, but very funny. So I said “this is how I think she should be played – what do you think?” and we just kind of met in the middle. I pictured her as a bit more manic, and he saw her as the darker spearhead of this campaign – she’s probably killed a few people before – very crazy, very dark.

DC: So is this a balls-to-the-wall physical role, or is your character a bit more restrained?

TS: Physical only in the kills – the rest of the stuff is very cool and calculated, and things almost go as planned until one of my family members jacks it all up, THEN things go balls-to-the-wall. Probably had one of my family members in the movie not screwed things up, this would have been a very short film – when a psychopathic sibling decides to rush things, you just can’t kill people the way you want to.

DC: Over the course of your career, you’ve done a lot of stuff on film, but would there come a time where a director approached you with something that you simply wouldn’t want to go with – is there an untouchable topic?

TS: I don’t know – I want to say never say never, and there’s certain things that I don’t necessarily find interesting if they’re being done a certain way. I don’t think I’ll say “I’m never going to do that, or touch that! because if something’s done the right way, it can be awesome. I don’t think all this bathroom humor is super-funny, so I’ll never do a movie about toilets (laughs), but if it was a Jim Carrey, big-budget slapstick-comedy I could change my mind! As far as the untouchable thing goes, my taste in movies changes pretty much daily, and stuff that I was way into as a teenager I may be into this year, maybe not – every script is completely different, and my sense of humor changes, and what might be thought of as funny a few years ago, could be looked at as played out right now. My hope is that all this stuff coming in will be different, and lately it has been, from playing a sad, depressed Mom in Mitch Altieri’s Starlight, to this calculating psychopath in Killer Kate, and I’m getting ready to play a character called Deputy Boozer in Texas Cotton – she’s a straight-up bad-ass.

DC: Last thing I have for you is this: with all that you have going on, when in the hell will you be getting some down-time?

TS: Right out after I wrap out on Texas Cotton, which is about two weeks of work, I’m done for the holidays. After a little chill-time, hopefully we’ll have some news on when Victor Crowley is coming out – I’m so happy with that movie, and I really want everyone to get the chance to see it.

Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?



You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

Very cool.

The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.


In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy



It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

As a comedy.

As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

You can check out the full list HERE.

One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
