Principal photography has been completed on Mindfire Entertainment’s THE THIRST. Directed by Jeremy (THE ATTIC EXPEDITIONS) Kasten and starring Jeremy (WRONG TURN) Sisto and Adam (SERENITY) Baldwin, THE THIRST was previously described by Mindfire producer Mark Altman as “very, very bloody”—and Malice, who appears in the film as a stripper in a fetish club, concurs. During the Los Angeles shoot, she tells Fango, “I was covered in spurting blood so profuse that it reminded me of the old martial arts movies where people spray gallons [of it].”
She explains the FX-heavy scene: “Adam Baldwin, playing a vampire, snapped the arm of a patron in the strip club; I was playing the stripper who had been giving the customer a lap dance when all hell broke loose! They sprayed kung-fu-horror amounts of blood all over me while I lay there topless. I was literally drenched from head to toe in the stuff while [Baldwin] gargled it and spat one-liners at me. I didn’t have to fake my gasping, flinching reaction; I couldn’t help it since I was being drenched! The mess afterward was very impressive. This is going to be one very bloody movie.”
Autonomous Effects, the new shop headed by Jason Collins (who previously served up grue for 13 GHOSTS and HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL), handled the gags, and was “amazing to work with,” Malice continues. “I never thought I’d be able to be naked and covered in blood in a room full of people and not feel uncomfortable, but the crew managed to make that a reality.” Stay tuned to Fango for further developments.
