Exclusive: 6 Quick Wrong Turn 6 Questions for Actress Sadie Katz

Published

on

In Wrong Turn 6: The Last Resort, Sadie Katz plays an impeccably inbred sex kitten with not only an ax to grind, but many, many people to kill.

Dread Central: First of all, I have to say I really enjoyed your writing when I saw the movie Scorned. Very clever, bitter stuff! Were you able to ad lib or change any of the dialogue for your character in Wrong Turn 6?

Sadie Katz: Thanks for that! Scorned was wickedly fun to write. Frank Woodworth wrote a really clean script in terms of writing… there wasn’t really need for ad libbing. There’s a couple of juicy fun lines I loved delivering – one of my favorites, “Don’t you fret; you’ll be in me soon enough.”

DC: What was it about playing Sally that especially appealed to you? There’s a lot going on, from the physicality of it to the psychological aspects.

SK: I don’t want to give away too many spoilers here, but Sally’s really one of the most complicated characters as far as back stories goes in a horror. She’s literally a cat in heat who’s dying to mate and have some kittens. She’s intensely loyal to her family to the point of… well, let’s just say she believes in keeping it in the family. Do you see what I’m saying here? I was absolutely stoked to play her because she’s just got all these levels, and every day we filmed I was trying to squeeze as many levels as I could into the dialogue and scenes I had. I loved that challenge. I was totally grateful to not just play a one-note female who was either running from the killer or a killer who just killed for blood. As an actor to get to play a character like Sally, it’s a gift… one you hope you don’t fuck up.

DC: Taking Wrong Turn 6 out of the mix, what’s your favorite one of the franchise, and what do you love about it?

SK: Everyone says the first one because it started them all. Eliza Dushku is one of my favorite actresses because I was a “Buffy” and “Angel” super nerdy fan. So of course that would be my absolute favorite. I’ve read fans compare the others to the first though, and that’s sorta a crazy thing because horror franchises don’t really work that way… I mean, you can’t just keep duplicating the story again and again because why bother? I’m also a fan of changing the environment slightly in every Wrong Turn in some of the same ways “American Horror Story” has switched their whole set-up. So, that being said, I really enjoyed number 5 because the kills were absolutely brutal… the ending gave me nightmares.

DC: I know this isn’t a horror-related question, but I just can’t help but ask… “Nipples and Palm Trees”? What’s that about? (Aside from the obvious…) Who do you play in it?

SK: This is my favorite question. It’s a raunchy sex comedy about a loser looking for love in Los Angeles. It was shot for next to nothing by the super talented Dylan Reynolds. I’m the female lead [with] Matt James, who actually played Merl for “Angel” fans, and Akihiro Kitamura, who was in Human Centipede. Hulu actually just picked it up this week and dubbed it a ‘Cult Film Comedy’ so it’s found an audience. A couple of bands have named themselves after the movie. And yes, there’s a lot of nipples in the movie… mine included, but the title was a gimmick; at the heart it’s a love story. Everyone gets a lot of shit for the title… well-deserved. I think it’s genius.

DC: Since you’ve now written a thriller script that you saw all the way through production and release, do you look at potential roles differently than you used to?

SK: I think I tend to look at filmmakers a little closer. I mean this in the nicest way; I can tell if someone really knows what they’re doing or not. I mean, the worst thing you can do is get involved with a project that loses funding, doesn’t get finished, or even worse doesn’t get distribution. Right now it’s like the Wild West of making films, and I’m surprised how many scripts I have or auditions I go to where I kind of know the film won’t ever happen. I know this is going to sound so insane coming from a female, but if I read a horror script and there’s not any huge names and there’s no nudity, I’m asking, “Why isn’t there any nudity?” I’m thinking how’s this film getting distribution… how can we all make sure the film is successful and gets sold? Look, if no one buys the movie, I don’t care if I get paid or not. I’m going to be bummed out for all involved if we aren’t all celebrating the release.

DC: What’s next on the horror agenda for you?

SK: I’m in a film that just wrapped, State of Desolation, which is directed by Jim Towns, also starring Jamie Bernadette, Dominique Swain, Craig Stark and Jessica Morris. It’s a very clever take on the zombie genre, post-apocalyptic and very sexy.

I’m also back at the computer writing again about a woman on the edge…which seems to be what I prefer to write about. You can draw your own conclusions about that one.

DC: Thanks so much, Sadie. Can’t wait to see all that you have coming up.

SK: THANK YOU! And happy Halloween.

Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3

Published

on

“From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

But what about “True Detective” season 3?

Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.

Synopsis:

A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie

Published

on

One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.

Jordan Peele Is Open to the Idea of Get Out Sequel

Published

on

Recently we shared the baffling news that this year, the Golden Globes were considering writer-director Jordan Peele’s psychological horror-thriller Get Out a comedy.

Hurm. While that bit of news still doesn’t make a bit of sense to me, today we have an update on Jordan Peele’s possible sequel Get Out 2. Which is always welcome.

Deadline was recently speaking with the filmmaker and Peele told them that although he still hasn’t cracked the sequel, if he comes up with a fresh spin he would have no problem revisiting the first film.

“I haven’t decided anything yet,” Peele told the site. “I am allowing the creative part to bubble up, and not force it. I know if a follow-up is meant to happen, it will. I’m open to figuring out what it is. But I also don’t want to let down the original and its fans. I simply would not do something like that for the cash.”

Good to hear!

I don’t know about you, but if Jordan Peele does decide to revisit the world of Get Out again in the future, I will be there. After reading these comments, I have faith the man will not return unless the story deserves it. Money be damned!

Unless… the sequel is called Sell Out… Ooohh. Snap. All jokes aside, in this world of sequels and remakes, it feels pretty damn good to hear a filmmaker talk this way.

What do you think of a Get Out sequel? Do you think the first film needs a continuation? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

You can buy Get Out on Blu-ray HERE.

Synopsis:

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 never could have imagined.
