DG Sept - She Just Keeps on Screaming, and Screaming, and Screaming...

Brinke Stevens is one of the infamous "scream Queens" of the 1980's, sharing many a b-movie billing with Linnea Quigley and Michelle Bauer. Brinke has managed to stay vital in the world of low-budget movies and took time out from her busy schedule recently to catch us up on what she's been doing as of late.

DG: I see you were recently involved in Mark Baranowski's "Heaven Help Me, I'm in Love." It sounds like a romantic comedy - is this the case? Who do you play? Did you shoot your scenes in Los Angeles or travel to North Carolina for the shoot?

Brinke: Everyone is so surprised when I say I've just done a romantic comedy - it was quite refreshing! Athough, I did play Ryli's mother -- who's dying of a brain tumor -- so a wee bit of the horror quotient is still there. It was the second time I've worked for Mark. On "Expendable", I shot my scenes here in Los Angeles. For this new one, he flew me to N. Carolina for a few days. Upon my arrival, I was interviewed by a local newspaper, "The Charlotte Observer", which was a nice touch. A wonderful article about me, Mark, and Ryli was published a couple of weeks ago.

DG: So you've just returned from a shoot in Ohio for a project called "Revenge Live." What's it all about? Who do you play?

Brinke: Again, I'm inevitably doing the "mother" roles now - not as glamorous as a sorority babe, but usually less naked and less bloody. I played "Ms. Norris", whose teenage daughter has been drugged and date-raped. For the first time ever, I was able to cry real tears on cue (though I had the eye drops handy). It's a very hard thing for an actor to accomplish - but I've lived through enough pain by now to finally pull it off. I was proud of my work on "Revenge Live". My scenes were shot at the Oberlin, OH, police station. While we were there, a young couple stopped by to drop off a fishing net and a plate of cookies. The sergeant told me he'd loaned them the net to catch a stray bat inside their house, and the cookies were a "thank you". It reminded me so much of Mayberry - I was utterly charmed. You don't find that sort of quaintness in Los Angeles.

DG: Jason Paul Collum's OCTOBER MOON is coming out sometime soon from Tempe Video. Jeff Dylan Graham raved about being able to work on such a high quality project. Tell us about your role and experience making this one.

Brinke: It's a very different sort of film, dealing with a fatal obsession - between two men. It's bold, realistic, and dignified - Jason Collum is an amazing creator, and we're all excited to see how the movie will be received by mainstream audiences. I have a huge role in "October Moon", and appear throughout the movie (as the head of an advertising agency). That's rare these days, since I usually get hired for one or two days, and get killed off before the opening credits. (Budgets have sunk dramatically, and young filmmakers can't afford to hire me for a couple of weeks anymore.) We shot it around Halloween last year in Wisconsin, so it's got loads of local color.

DG: What other projects do you have on the horizon either shooting-wise or release-wise?

Brinke: I'm eagerly awaiting the release of DEAD THINGS. It's a horror anthology, and I appear in all three vignettes-- as a blonde secretary, a withered old crone, and a modern witch. It was such fun to look completely different for each story! Also, I just worked on a new anthology film here in LA, at Marilyn Monroe's old estate. It's called "The Boneyard Collection", and my segment is "Her Morbid Desire". In Marilyn's living room, I bludgeoned a guy to death with a bowling trophy and hacked up another one with an axe. Only in Hollywood...

DG: I am amazed at how many conventions you do every year, but it is a testament to your love for your fans. Where can we look for you soon?

Brinke: I often do a dozen or more fan conventions per year. My next big show is Chiller Theatre on Halloween weekend. I always keep a listing of upcoming cons at my official website - www.brinke.com.

DG: Thanks for catching us all up on your latest works!

Brinke: Thanks, Joe - I love your Dr. Squid stuff! And many thanks to all my friends out there, for your kindness and support.

Saludos Sr. Del MoralMe interesa este dmutoencal, no porque tenga algfan tipo de conexif3n nostalgica como usted, sino porque no hace mucho escuche9 una teoreda que dice (palabras mas, palabras menos) que el hecho de hacer una mala peledcula no significa el termino de la carrera de un cineasta, ya que de alguna u otra forma sere1 recordado y la gente puede ir a ver y pagar su boleto sf3lo para criticarla. Piense: la fama es pasajera, pero la infamia eura parq siempre.Ahed tiene a uwe boll, roland emerich, o joel schumacher.Ahora pasando a otro tema: Por que9 cree que ya no haya scream queens en los 90s y 2000? No cuentan las de saw? O jennifer aniston en lepruachan? O las chavas de scream?Bueno, lo dejo, tenga un excelente fin y/o inicio de semana.ATTEIMPALA

sebas94: Ya ANd3NIMO se tomf3 la molestia de ercontnar la respuesta. Gracias a ambos y saludos!ANd3NIMO: Otro agradecimiento me1s a la larga lista, y que tengas una excelente semana!IMPALA: Yo creo que siguen y seguire1n existiendo, aunque el documental trate de encasillar el te9rmino en la de9cada de los ochentas. Entiendo que quieran proteger el "legado" de Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens y Michelle Bauer, pero la verdad es que desde los inicios mismos del cine ya habeda actrices especializadas en dar gritos en peledculas de horror o suspenso (la me1s ce9lebre quize1s sea Fay Wray en King Kong). Por cierto, mi "scream queen" actual favorita es Danielle Harris (Hatchet, Stake Land, Laid to Rest 2)... aunque estrictamente hablando no tiende a gritar. Saludos y feliz semana!
