Otherwise, let’s get to know the Fang Sisters, two of the lovely contestants competing to become hosts for the Shockfest Film Festival.
Q: Tell us about your characters, What are they like?
Christine: Estelle, Hell’s Belle, is a vampire from the Deep South. She owns a 24 hour Saloon and she sings and writes songs and plays instruments. Her Southern hospitality is on point (and so are her fangs!). She is very friendly and comes across sweet to her victims…. until she serves them for a drink!!
Sarah: Esmeralda is a beautiful dancer from Colombia that was turned into a vampire and now dances from club to club luring her men with her hypnotizing belly dancing. We really do make a perfect pair!
Q: How did the two of you get teamed up to be the Fang Sisters?
Sara and Christine: We were paired together as a part of an ensemble challenge for the audition of a horror host role for Shockfest Filmfest that we are both auditioning for.
Q: What’s your favorite scary movie?
Christine: My all time favorite scary movie is The Exorcist!
Q: What do you love the most about horror films?
Sara: I love the rush of getting really scared, but knowing that I’m safe at home or in the theater.
Q: What was something that terrified you as a kid?
Sara: Honestly, my brother’s room. He was a huge metal head with posters of demons on the wall and his room was in the basement. There was always loud thunder-like music pounding from under the house. My grandmother and mom used to tell me that if I was bad, the devil would reach up from under the ground and pull me down to hell (I love them dearly, but I must admit, I was a bad kid and not much got me to behave). So, naturally, I thought my brother was the devil.
Q: What are you doing to prepare for your Zoom performance on July 27th?
Christine: Well, I have been making custom pieces for my special outfit that I will be wearing for our segments of Fangin’ Out. I’ve also been writing and putting the finishing touches on a song that will be performed during the broadcast. I’ve been hounding all my friends and family to watch and vote too!!
