Comments Off on Interview with Highway Hottie: Brooke Lewis
A very big thank you to Brooke Lewis who took time out of her insanely busy schedule to do an interview with us. Also, we’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Brooke for being awarded Best Scream Queen of 2009 by the B-movie Golden Cob 2010 Awards. Hope you enjoy her interview below.
LH: What is your best horror movie experience/memory?
BL: Creating MS. VAMPY and VAMP IT OUT from deep within my heart and soul; Working opposite “CANDYMAN” (Tony Todd) in iMURDERS and last, but not least, winning the B MOVIE GOLDEN COB AWARDS 2010 for BEST SCREAM of 2009 for SLIME CITY MASSACRE!!!
LH: How do you feel about the “horror” remakes that are being made today?
BL: I am soooo over it! 9 times out of 10, the remake can’t touch the original! But, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t act in one…ya hear that, Rob Zombie??? 😉
LH: In your opinion, what elements make for a great horror film?
BL: A smart script; a story that sends chills down your spine; strong roles for women!
LH: Have your friends/family been supportive of your career as an actress and model?
BL: Beyond belief…I don’t know how they put up with me! My family and friends have supported me through all the “ups and downs” in this crazy business and I am forever grateful!
LH: When you’re not producing movies, acting or doing photo shoots, what hobbies do you like to do in your spare time?
BL: I’m sorry…spare time? What the hell is that??? 🙂 I’m not even kidding, but on that rare occasion when I take a break, I watch horror films; TWILIGHT; TRUE BLOOD; AMERICAN IDOL; Do charity work; Listen to 80s music; Wine tasting; Astrology; Anything romantic; I love kissing…
LH: What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
BL: FAME; GOODFELLAS; RENT
LH: In a blind taste test, could you tell the difference between a Geno’s and a Pat’s Philly cheese steak?
BL: Absofreakinlutely! When you grow up in Philly or Jersey, it becomes a skill. After going to clubs or parties, we always ended up at Geno’s or Pat’s Steaks after hours…that’s how I got my big booty 😉
LH: As an actress/artist which medium do you prefer: theatre, TV, or movies?
BL: I’ve done it all and I prefer TV…we shoot, it airs a month later and the paycheck and residuals are sweeeet! 🙂
LH: What does the future hold for Philly Chick Pictures?
BL: Philly Chick Pictures has a bloody bright future! I am proud to announce that we are in the development stage of creating a feature film for Ms. Vampy. I am blessed to have a co-production deal with Illusion Industries, in which I will star and produce, Todd Tucker will direct, Jim Pacitti will star and produce and Tamar Halpern, Todd, Jim and I have written based on my original story. The feature is a Halloween Family Comedy titled VAMP IT OUT and will be in the vain of THE NANNY meets ELVIRA meets HOUSE BUNNY. I am following my heart and soul with this piece and my goal is to inspire teenage girls and women to embrace their inner beauty, follow their dreams and when faced with fear, dig deep inside, find their inner vamp and VAMP IT OUT!!!
LH: Do you have any desire to return to the stage/theatre?
BL: Not at this time. I started in theatre and toured and did Off-Broadway shows for years in New York and after performing in TONY N’ TINA’S WEDDING Off-Broadway for almost 3 years, 7 shows a week, I burned out a bit. I choose projects that feel right to my soul and, at this time, it doesn’t feel right. When it does again, one day, and my soul is screaming for the stage, I will be there with a big smile!
LH: How did you become involved with the sequel to “Slime City”, “Slime City Massacre?”
BL: SLIME CITY MASSACRE is a gem of a lil indie horror/scifi/action flick! Greg Lamberson, the writer/director/producer, put his life into this project! He contacted me directly, after Wil Keiper recommended me, as both an actress and producer. Everyone pulled together to create something wonderful and artistic with a very low budget. For all the original SLIME CITY fans, Greg really stepped it up with the sequel! I play Nicole, a prostitute in the 1959 flashback scenes. I really enjoyed preparing for this character and I hope horror fans enjoy my work in this one. This was a project I chose solely based on the script, my role and Greg’s passion to make the film and it turned out to be quite a gift. I am forever grateful to Greg and the cast and crew of SLIME CITY MASSACRE, as I won the B MOVIE GOLDEN COB AWARD!
LH: Tell us one thing that your fans don’t know about you.
BL: I am rarely alone, but I am often lonely…
LH: What do you think was the best B-movie/horror film from 2009?
Released in 2009: iMURDERS; Filmed in 2009: SLIME CITY MASSACRE…DUH! 🙂
Thank you to LOST HIGHWAY and your readers…here’s to a horrific year! Love & Horror, XO Brooke Lewis
