"I'm Ready for My Close-Up!" My Killer Rack Adventure

Scene from "Killer Rack." Photography by Chris Cosgrave

On August 15, I drove to Buffalo to be in the movie, Killer Rack.

A few months ago, Greg Lamberson asked me if I was interested in playing a gypsy fortune teller in the movie he was going to be directing called Killer Rack written by Paul McGinnis. He sent me the script and I laughed my ass off when I read it.

Of course I wanted to be part of this madness!

The movie has been in production for a couple of weeks now. It's a huge star-studded cast, as in, anyone who enjoys horror and B-movies is sure to spot someone they know. Debbie Rochon, Lloyd Kaufman, and Brooke Lewis, are just a few of the head-liners. There are many other repeat appearances from Slime City Massacre including myself.

My part was a gypsy tarot reader whom one of the characters consults. It was great fun to put on a crazy accent and tap my inner gypsy. Greg is a fantastic director to work with and Jessica Zwolak was the perfect actress to bounce off. There were some challenges with noise ranging from unexpected construction and traffic and me forgetting the same damn line over and over, a simple obvious line too, as it always is when actors get brain-block, but we powered through.

I had a blast. It was weird how cold it was though. This August weather is not very August-y at all. It feels more like Halloween.

Coming home, there were a lot of high winds. It reminded me of when I shot my scenes in Buffalo for Slime City Massacre. That year, a TORNADO came down the street a block over and tore up the neighbourhood at my home in Mississauga. It was a good thing I wasn't home, because I likely would have had a heart attack to be in a tornado! Luckily, no tornadoes this time and everything was fine on my arrival back to Toronto.

The movie will continue to shoot for a few more weeks. You can follow along on  Greg Lamberson's Live Journal about Day Six
