The Scream Queen: Grade B


The Scream Queen

Liz Lavoie, Nipper Knapp. Director Tatiana Bliss. (Digital Video)

LL plays an aspiring Hollywood actress whose only success has been as a screamer in really bad horror movies. The depiction of making the horror movies is a great parody of that genre. But she does have goofy fans, a group of whom graduate from film school and want her in their horror film. She refuses, they kidnap her out to the desert where they make a hilariously stupid movie, and in the process, she kicks her substances habit and starts to notice that the people around her are really quite decent. The whole thing is total silliness, but for a zero budget movie, it is remarkably good, and funny too.
