Spotlight/ Shoutout: Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins



Abracadabra, this week’s spotlight/ shoutout is a dual honor, and it goes to Emily Perkins and Katie Isabelle (her friends call her Katie, and I have declared myself a BFF.)

Oh and in the pic Katie I is on the left and Emily P is on the right.

You might recognize these two as the ugly stepsisters from “Another Cinderella Story.”

BUT!!!! Before that they starred together in the “Ginger Snaps” trilogy.

And the reason they earn this weeks’ S/S is because “Ginger Snaps” is awesome! No joke. It is a well-done low budget horror film, that isn’t sold on a bunch of dumb slutty girls dying and mindless, senseless gore. I am just glad to know that those still exist out there. It should be in select video stores or even possibly online. “Ginger Snaps” has action, adventure, mysticism, teen angst, comedy, drama, suspense, and possibly other qualities.

Now GS 2 and GS: Ginger Snaps Back, are not so hot. But they were worth watching.
Katie Isabelle also appeared in “Freddy vs. Jason,” which was okay, but not the best Freddy or Jason pic.

And yes as I mentioned earlier KI and EP reunited to play the ugly stepsisters in “Another Cinderella Story.” That was the whole reason I watched that film. (Totally not true, I had no idea they were both going to be in it. It was a surprise. I saw it because as everybody knows I’m a Selena G fan!) No shame.



QATFYG: What are some good low-budget/indie horror films that we all need to see?

Comments

  1. You seriously think there are good low-budget/ indie horror films out there. I personally think there has to be a certain production value that allows the viewer to feel like he or she is seeing real life. Low budget/ indie horror films tend to lack this element and thus become very artificial in look and style, which becomes distracting.

  2. Quite a few indie horror films do, but independent films also have appeal because they sell themselves on the script and the quality of acting as opposed to special F/X (and fake blood with horror films).

  3. Anon,
    Here are some decent indie horror films worth checking out..
    Ginger Snaps …of course
    Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield
    Also Wilmer Valderama has a horror pic out called The Dead One...maybe I'll see it for laughs.

    And Gacy (I haven’t seen this one yet, but it looks sooooooooo good.)

    These are off the top of my head. I’ll post more if I remember.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
