Exclusive: Felissa Rose on Her Intimidatingly Loving Character in Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard

  • DailyDead
Many horror fans met Felissa Rose for the first time one sinister summer at Camp Arawak back in the early 1980s. Though perhaps best known for playing Angela Baker in Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult classic, Sleepaway Camp, Rose has portrayed a wide variety of memorable characters in the horror genre since the turn of the century. Her latest role, a deeply religious survivor in the rural town of Elwood in the age of a zombie apocalypse, is certainly no exception.

With Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay, we caught up with Rose to discuss her intense character, working with Billy Zane and Dee Wallace, Scream Factory’s Sleepaway Camp Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, and much more.

Camp Dread (2014) review

  • MoreHorror
Reviewed by Colleen Wanglund

Camp Dread (2014)

Directed by Harrison Smith

Runtime 94 minutes

Written and directed by Harrison Smith, Camp Dread stars Eric Roberts as Julian Barrett, a washed-up director of a trilogy of hit horror films who has a scheme for another “big” project. Barrett brings together a group of troubled twenty-somethings who were given the choice of jail or boot camp, and two of his former stars for a reality show. The camp is actually the site of Barrett’s original three films, a working summer camp in a small town overseen by Sheriff Donlyn, played by the lovely Danielle Harris. The “contestants” will have to get the camp ready to open, as well as take part in challenges, go to therapy sessions, and risk elimination. That elimination becomes all too real rather quickly.

For a B-movie, Camp Dread isn’t too bad, even though the plot has some implausible aspects to it.

DVD Review – Camp Dread (2014)

Camp Dread, 2014.

Written and Directed by Harrison Smith.

Starring Eric Roberts, Danielle Harris, Kyle Patrick Brennan, Ashley Caspermeyer, Felissa Rose, Ashley Sumner and Nicole Cinaglia.

Synopsis:

After directing a trilogy of 80’s horror flicks, Julian Barrett (Roberts) plans a reboot of the series on the basis of a reality show design. By encouraging interest in the concept by using reality TV he hopes to generate the necessary finances he needs to launch his project. By using stars of the now aged movies and a group of young people with troubled pasts, he thinks he has the perfect mix to achieve his goal. However, the lines between reality and film events soon become blurred and before long the contestants are fighting for more than just success…..

I had hoped that I would be surprised by this film; that I would be wrong in predicting what would happen based on the story premise.

‘Camp Dread’ DVD Review

Stars: Eric Roberts, Felissa Rose, Danielle Harris, Joe Raffa, Montanta Marks, Kyle Patrick Brennan, Ashley Caspermeyer, Nicole Cinaglia, Brian Gallagher, Gnomi Gre, Alexander Mandell, Angel Anthony Marrero, Davy Raphaely | Written and Directed by B. Harrison Smith

A group of misguided young adults – amongst them killers, blackmailers, sex offenders – have been sent to the camp as part of a new reality show. This is their last chance to avoid prison or rehab and if they avoid elimination they could win $1 million along the way. Manipulating the contestants is down-at-heel horror director Julian Barrett (Roberts), using the same set as his old horror franchise Summer Camp. And as the competition progresses, it becomes more than just a battle to win. It’s a desperate, gut-wrenching fight for survival…

Welcome to Camp Dread.

Mixing the slasher movie with reality TV doesn’t seem like the best idea for horror movie, especially considering

Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard Nabs Distro; New Posters

We've been talking about Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard starring Billy Zane, Mischa Barton, Felissa Rose, and Dee Wallace for quite some time; and now we're happy to announce that the flick has found itself distribution!

Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard was picked up for domestic, UK, and Australia release by Anchor Bay. Stay tuned for a release date!

Director Harrison Smith (Camp Dread) had crafted the first zombie film connected to the controversial fracking industry. With visual special effects by Lord of the Rings' Joe Lawson, makeup effects by Angie Johnson of Evolution, and creature effects by "The Walking Dead" artist Toby Sells, the film takes on an American Western flavor that focuses on heavy action and detailed characters.

Several sequels are already planned under the branding of "Zombie Killers," which is referenced in the film, as the story focuses on a team of young warriors under the leadership of military

The Bottom Shelf: Re-Animator, The Beast Within and more

  • Den of Geek
Re-Animator, The Beast Within and Camp Dread are among the horror films to appear on DVD and Blu-ray this month. Nick takes a look...

Feature

Wow. Just a month in and this regular post dedicated to the - shall we say - more idiosyncratic, less delicate of movies (or shall we just say “gory horrors and not-quite-b-movies”) has the splendid fortune of getting to review Stuart Gordon’s tongue-in-cheek classic, Re-Animator.

Produced by Brian Yuzna, the warped individual behind the brutal class satire/mutant cannibalism jaunt Society, and starring that rubber-faced icon of the midnight movie, Jeffrey Combs, this remains one of the crowning glories of 80s cult film-making. Re-Animator's essentially an outlandish, sillier take on Hp Lovecraft’s spin on the Frankenstein mad-scientist story, and Combs, who you’ll undoubtedly know from such box-office juggernauts as Doctor Mordrid and Cellar Dweller (reviewed here next month), plays brilliant-if-misguided medical student Herbert West.
