The multi-talented filmmaker tells CineMovie why she re-evaluated her career when the economy took a dive.
After gaining attention as the star of her short film, In The Name Of Freedom, Isabel opened up more doors for herself as an actress including starring on Syfy’s original film, American Horror House with Morgan Fairchild where she hints she may be doing a bit of the scaring.

On Halloween night a sorority house is overrun with ghosts while a vengeful housemother goes on a killing spree. The American Horror House Original Movie is directed by Darin Scott (Dark House) and stars Morgan Fairchild and Alessandra Torresani.Entertainment Weekly says:
Continuing Syfy's schlock legacy, Horror pits buxom sorority pledges against an evil housemother (Morgan Fairchild) who's harvesting the souls of unfortunate visitors. The gore, acting, and screenplay are decidedly camp — which I suspect is kind of the point — making for silly, brainless Halloween fun. And to prove it's ultra-contemporary, it's all set to dubstep! No, really.
And from Shock Till You Drop:
American Horror House works because it does not take itself seriously and has modest ambitions. With healthy doses of sniping sorority girls and plenty of pop culture references, very often it is intentionally funny. »
Syfy's 13th Day of Halloween proves dreadfully unlucky for the partygoers and sorority pledges in tonight's original movie, American Horror House. Morgan Fairchild and Alessandra Torresani co-star in this ghostly tale directed by Darin Scott (Femme Fatales, Dark House).
Last week screen icon Morgan Fairchild spoke with reporters about her wide-ranging career, this film and what it was like making it.
She began by revealing her fandom for these kinds of films, which was the primarily reason she agreed to play Ms. Margot here. "I must confess I’m quite a devotee of the Syfy movie channel. I watch Syfy movies on the weekends. I’ve always enjoyed these kinds of fun movies. Even when I'm not at home, my boyfriend knows to record their new nine o'clock movies for me every Saturday. I like monsters and ghosts and I’m a big vampire fan. I loved Dracula and Frankenstein and all of that. »
With Syfy’s Original Movie American Horror House debuting tomorrow, October 13th, at 9Pm, we caught up with Latin actress Isabel Cueva, who stars alongside Morgan Fairchild and Alessandra Torresani in the Darin Scott-directed ghost flick.
Cueva, who previously appeared in Jack the Reaper and will next appear alongside Danny Trejo in American Flyer, said of her experience with American Horror House, “I love playing dramatic characters, and I loved the experience of playing a character that changes throughout the story; the killer in this movie is very creative in the way he/she kills! You will see people die, but not in the common ways we see in horror films, and while I don’t get to do any screaming, I do cry.”
Check out the exclusive clip and photo below as well as the trailer for American Horror House.

New episodes of Degrassi return with an awkward family dinner.
The internet was in shock yesterday as reports broke saying that Colton Haynes is leaving Teen Wolf, though producers denied the report. E! adds that the show decided to move on because Haynes' team took took long to respond to an offer for Haynes to stick around for two more seasons.
It's official, NBC announced that it will air the Mockingbird Lane pilot on October 26, leading into that synergestic Halloween episode of Grimm. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed it pulls a Nightingales and does well enough to get a series order (though I hope it turns out to be a better series than Nightingales).
In a bit of small mercy, TNT has cancelled the reality competition series The Great Escape. It was a great concept and they had some terrific locations for challenges but what was on screen »
Isabel Cueva and I met in 2010 at Laliff where her short In the Name of Freedom showed. Since then she has been busy writing a script she plans to direct. It's good to see a Latina sister moving ahead in the film industry, not an easy task.

If you are looking for something original or suspenseful, do not bother with the Syfy Channel’s American Horror House, airing on Saturday, October 13th as part of the network’s 31 Days of Halloween.
However, if you happen to be in the mood for some goofy fun and, generally speaking, enjoy Syfy fare, look no further.
Penned by Syfy veteran Anthony Ferrante (Haunted High, Leprechaun’s Revenge, Headless Horseman) and directed by Darin Scott, who helmed Dark House and co-wrote Tales from the Hood, American Horror House is a convoluted mess. It kicks off with a little girl murdering her parents in bed and immediately jumps to the present. Who they all were and when the murders occurred is unclear.

Syfy's "Bigfoot," starring Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams airs June 30th. June on Syfy means it's time for escapist popcorn fare, over-the top-summer flicks for families; the big, special-effects-driven movies you have come to love. So far we have seen Arachnoquake, Jersey Shore Shark Attack, Swamp Shark and SwampVolcano. CGI B-Movie masterpieces that really have the creatures jumping out at you. The Partridge Family-Brady Bunch history of the actors just makes it all the more delicious. In the Fall, Syfy will offer darker original films including American Horror House, with Morgan Fairchild and Alessandra Torresani, and Dead Walking, with LeVar Burton and Mariel Hemingway. »

"The head of the Syfy network said he wanted me to be in a movie," she tells Denver's WestWord. "So they got hold of me and my mom and flew me out to Louisiana."
Spies will play a sorority girl in the movie, which is tentatively titled either "Final Initiation" or "American Horror House" and co-stars Morgan Fairchild. Spies, however, won't share any details about the movie, including whether or not her character dies. »
