THERE ARE ONLY MONSTERS IN THIS CLOSET!
Long before she was introduced to Ellen DeGeneres and/or the notion of tweezed eyebrows, the lovely Portia de Rossi made an appearance as a sorority sister in Scream 2 (1997).
Unfortunately, Scream 2 is one of those horror films where the sorority sisters don’t engage in topless pillow fights. What’s up with that? I thought that’s why girls pledged sororities in the first place!
Out actress Jessica Graham (2 Minutes Later) has also taken on the genre in Devil Girl, an indie horror flick picking up a lot of buzz on the festival circuit; I took in a screening not so long ago at Shriekfest, in fact. Graham plays Fay, a muscle car-drivin’ woman who gets stranded in the middle of nowhere when said car breaks down and a psychotic clown steals her wallet. She takes a dancing gig at a local strip club to earn some dough, and eventually she has sex with the mysterious (and titular) devil girl who shows up from time to time.
I’m not drunk — that’s really what happens in the movie. Check out Devil Girl when you can; it’s sure to be released any minute now, and both the film and Graham have style to burn.
OK … you know I have to bring up BloodRayne (2005), right? Now, don’t let the words “Uwe” and “Boll” fool you — BloodRayne doesn’t even rank in IMDb.com’s Bottom 100. That’s right: It’s better than that. Don’t get me wrong, it’s … not good. But is it the perfect movie to play during your leztastic Halloween party? Of course it is!
First of all, it’s written by out screenwriter/actress/director/producer Guinevere Turner. Secondly, if the film is simply background noise, then you only need to pay attention when Rayne (openly bisexual actress Kristanna Loken) and Katarin (Michelle Rodriguez) engage in their underwater knife fight (yes, I said "underwater knife fight"), or perhaps when Rayne finally gets her bite on and goes after Katarin. Surely we’ve all had worse dates than that, yes?
