Horror Favourites – Natasha Killip

From Uncork’d Entertainment comes the most colorful carnage of 2020, Paintball Massacre on DVD and Digital December 15 and we challenged one of the films stars, Natasha Killip, to name her favorite horror film.

Joe Hallett and Brendan Carr produced. With a soundtrack boasting names such as Andy Taylor and Skindred, Paintball Massacre aims for the head this December.

Below Natasha Killip tells us all about her favorite horror film:

“My brother and I grew up in a household of movie nerds. My parents had an entire wall in the living room that had 100s of VHS on display.

However, my parents were quite strict and didn’t want us watching any violent movies until we were “of age”.

But I would look at the spines of the VHS covers and see Silence of the Lambs & The Shining on display, they were like the forbidden fruit to me. I had to watch these movies!

So naturally, I did as my parents advised against, and I used to sneak behind their backs and watch them.

Scream was the first movie I watched. And the moment I saw Drew Barrymore swinging from that tree with her insides on the outside- I was sold.

I feel like I was born (1989) just as the slasher genre was dying out in mainstream Hollywood. I feel like people were bored of the slasher franchises such as Halloween and Nightmare On Elm Street. They had become so predictable.

When Scream came out it was so different. Kevin Williamson’s writing was so post-modern that it changed the slasher genre game and brought it back in style.

It was witty, funny, had a whodunnit theme, and made fun of the old slasher movies by pointing out the “ways to survive a serial killer according to the horror genre rules”. And it had some good deaths in it. (Big up Tatum in the cat flap).

I also think the sequel that followed was just as brilliant. I love the whole saga & it brings me nostalgia as it gave me my love for horror movies.”
