Interviews with a Vampire

So the lovely Sheila Vand only *played* a vampire in A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT (which is SO freakin’ good!) but she’s definitely our kind of people. In an interview with Dread Central, she told them: “I love genre movies so much, so I’m way more inclined to do a film if it’s pushing some boundaries. I love the strange and the surreal, so the weirder your project is, the more likely I’ll want to be part of it.” Alas she also says: “I try to keep my roles diverse. I don’t like to play the same character twice because if you do that, Hollywood will try to lock you into that box forever.” Which probably means we won’t see her portray a vampire again onscreen.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ms. Vand talks about the movies that frightened her. “The one that terrified me the most as a kid—IT was really scary. I was so afraid of using the shower and the toilet, things that you have to use all the time. I always showered with the door opened and every time I peed it was like—I remember just regretting seeing it. Chucky also scared me a lot. Child’s Play. I couldn’t really handle my dolls in the same way. Some of the newer stuff, I love Babadook, I love It Follows. I love this wave of indie-horror films that care just as much about cinematography and character development…I remember also The Blair Witch Project… I took it so much to heart what those people went through and how real it all felt.” Good choices, sister. The lady has good taste.
