For the last few years, this blog has compiled interviews, paranormal articles, and reviews. It is time for a revamp. Currently, I am removing any post that isn’t an interview I have granted, or a post about my work; but don’t fret, I have created three new blogs to sister this one!

Here are three links for my new pages:

Alex’s Horror Movie Reviews and Suggestions

Alex’s Horror Book Reviews and Suggestions 

Alex’s Haunted Blog

This change should help you find the subjects you love easier.

Among these new blogs, I will try to post at the beginning of every month. If there is a specific subject you would like for me to cover, please post about it in the comments and I will consider the suggestion.

If you want to review my books, please contact me through my newsletter form. If you would like a review for your horror movie or book, know that I don’t leave bad reviews. This means if I didn’t care for your movie or book, I won’t review it. However, if you ask for an honest review regardless, I will post one, although it may not be to your favor.

If you would care to sign up for my newsletter, just click the following link and fill out the form. Newsletters are monthly and will feature horror reviews, paranormal blogs, giveaways, and more. Use this same form to contact me.

The Acquired Taste is a short film written for screen and directed by Chuck Jett, creator of Empty Coffin Studio Films.  It was tastefully adapted by the short story of the same title by author and producer Alexander S. Brown.  Fans can anticipate a free viewing of the film in 2017.  It is currently being shown at conventions throughout the Southern states.  Its next appearance will be at Contraflow Convention in New Orleans, LA.

 IMG_5857

For the next interview from this dark comedy, I would like to welcome actor Vice Verse, so that he may elaborate on his part in The Acquired Taste and his life.

 

  1. What made you want to be a part of The Acquired Taste?

My good friend Charles Jett who asked me to be a part of his short horror film “Pinky Swear”, asked me if I wanted to be in “The Acquired Taste”.  I said sure.

  1. What was your experience like on set?

Had a great time on set.  Even if it was one day, I had a ball.

  1. What other projects have you been a part of?

As far as acting, I was a thespian in High School.  I had a part in the movie “Save The Last Dance”, which was edited out, and I was in the short horror film by Charles Jett, “Pinky Swear”.

  1. Are there any roles that you would turn down? Or are there any roles that would make you uncomfortable?

It depends.  Anything dealing with an Ouija board I may have to pass on. lol

  1. What role is more fun? The victim, the hero, or the villain. Why?

I would say the villain or hero.  You can use all your acting capabilities doing either of those roles.

  1. What got you into acting?

My 5th grade art teacher.  I was always in talent shows and she tapped into my talents of acting.

  1. What are some of your favorite movies?

I love all 3 Godfather movies… Glory…Any movie with Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Denzel Washington, and Don Cheadle.  One of my favorite movies is “True Romance”.

  1. Who are your favorite actors/actresses? How do you draw inspiration from them?

Well, I kind of answered that above.  But I just watch how they approach a certain character.  How they use all the nuisances they can.  I just watch and learn.

  1. Who are your favorite directors?

Hmmmmm, Spielberg, Spike Lee, Harvey Fuqua just to name a few.

  1. What future projects are you working on?

I’m an artist/songwriter and I’m working on a new EP/Album entitled “Smoke&Mirrors”…which is a concept album talking about the ups and downs artists go through in the music business.

  1. Tell us about yourself.

I’m an artist by the name of Vice Verse…a songwriter/ghostwriter. Just an all-around talented individual that you will see more of in the future.

For the fourth interview from this dark comedy, I would like to welcome actress Chelsea Downs, so that she may elaborate on her part in The Acquired Taste and her life.

  1. What made you want to be a part of The Acquired Taste?

I wanted to act in one of Chuck Jett’s movies and it happened to be Alex’s book that he was doing, so it was perfect. I also really loved the story, as well.

  1. What was your experience like on set?

It was so much fun, like a lot of friends hanging out.

  1. What other projects have you been a part of?

I haven’t been a part of any other movies.  But I help chuck Jett when he wants someone to critique his work.

  1. Are there any roles that you would turn down? Or are there any roles that would make you uncomfortable?

I don’t think so. I haven’t had much experience to know for sure just yet.

  1. What role is more fun? The victim, the hero, or the villain. Why?

I think it would be fun to be a villain, just so I can be out of my everyday element.

  1. What got you into acting?

Ever since I was little, I wanted to act. Who doesn’t want to play pretend for a living?

  1. What are some of your favorite movies?

I’ll watch pretty much anything, but my favorite movie is, Now and Then. I don’t know why, but I have always loved that movie.

  1. Who are your favorite actors/actresses? How do you draw inspiration from them?

Johnny Depp because he can be anything anyone asks him to be, and I love that.

  1. Who are your favorite directors?

Jerry Bruckheimer, I love what he did with pirate movies.  Also, Tim Burton, I love his dark side to his movies.

  1. What future projects are you working on?

Nothing as of right now.

  1. Tell us about yourself.

I’m in my late twenties. I love to cosplay and become characters, going to cons is one of my favorite things to do, it’s like hanging out with my other family. I’m a huge geek who watches any and every movie. I love reading comics and books. I’m just your geeky girl next door.
