Interview: Actress Mink Stole Reflects on Her Career and Serial Mom

8 May 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week, Scream Factory is releasing a fantastic Collector’s Edition Blu-ray for John Waters’ subversive domestic comedy, Serial Mom, which follows a well-meaning mother (Kathleen Turner) who embarks on a murderous rampage after she finds out that certain folks are out to harm certain members of her loving family. In Serial Mom, frequent Waters collaborator Mink Stole stars as Dottie Hinkle, the bane of Turner’s character’s existent and tormented victim of her malicious sense of humor.

To celebrate the brand new Blu from Scream Factory, Daily Dead had the pleasure of speaking with Stole about her career, from starting out with Waters during the 1960s through her experiences on a variety of his other cinematic projects, including Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, and, of course, Serial Mom. Stole also reflected about her time on the set of Waters’ 1994 dark comedy, working with Turner and more.

It's 2017, and so MTV decided to literally mix up their annual awards show.

For the first time, the MTV Movie Awards became the MTV Movie & TV Awards, and categories combined both mediums into one. As movie lovers, we're not quite sure that the two are comparable, though we obviously recognize the rise of quality television.

Not only that, but MTV just became the first awards ceremony to neutralize gender in the acting categories. Instead of splitting up Best Actor and Best Actress, which is typical of all awards shows, the MTV Movie & TV Awards simply had "Best Actor in a Movie" and "Best Actor in a Show", where men and women performances competed against each other. It's worthy to »

On May 9th, Scream Factory is going to remind viewers why you don't dare cross Beverly Sutphin with their Collector's Edition Blu-ray release of John Waters' Serial Mom, and we have high-def clips and a trailer that tease what to expect from the new home media release.
