‘Girls’ and Horror Flicks
If you’re a working actor and want to keep it that way, sooner or later you’re going to end up in a horror film — that’s just Actor Econ 101. Those who’ve always wanted to see Luke paid back for his callous treatment of Lorelai, for example, can see how Scott Patterson fares in next month’s Saw V.
Next year, you also can look forward to seeing the nicer side of Paris’ Chiltonettes, Shelly Cole (Madeline), popping up in Dark House, a haunted house story starring genre favorite Jeffrey Combs (of Re-Animator fame).
Next year also sees a far more controversial cinematic offering: the remake of the quintessential grindhouse classic The Last House on the Left, featuring Riki Lindhome (Juliet, one of Rory’s fellow Yale students) as sadistic killer Sadie. If the remake turns out to be anything like the Wes Craven original, you’re in for a pretty traumatic experience. Only true Life and Death Brigade members need apply.
