Spotlight/ Shoutout: Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins

Abracadabra, this week’s spotlight/ shoutout is a dual honor, and it goes to Emily Perkins and Katie Isabelle (her friends call her Katie, and I have declared myself a BFF.)

Oh and in the pic Katie I is on the left and Emily P is on the right.

You might recognize these two as the ugly stepsisters from “Another Cinderella Story.”

BUT!!!! Before that they starred together in the “Ginger Snaps” trilogy.

And the reason they earn this weeks’ S/S is because “Ginger Snaps” is awesome! No joke. It is a well-done low budget horror film, that isn’t sold on a bunch of dumb slutty girls dying and mindless, senseless gore. I am just glad to know that those still exist out there. It should be in select video stores or even possibly online. “Ginger Snaps” has action, adventure, mysticism, teen angst, comedy, drama, suspense, and possibly other qualities.

Now GS 2 and GS: Ginger Snaps Back, are not so hot. But they were worth watching.
Katie Isabelle also appeared in “Freddy vs. Jason,” which was okay, but not the best Freddy or Jason pic.

And yes as I mentioned earlier KI and EP reunited to play the ugly stepsisters in “Another Cinderella Story.” That was the whole reason I watched that film. (Totally not true, I had no idea they were both going to be in it. It was a surprise. I saw it because as everybody knows I’m a Selena G fan!) No shame.

QATFYG: What are some good low-budget/indie horror films that we all need to see?


  1. You seriously think there are good low-budget/ indie horror films out there. I personally think there has to be a certain production value that allows the viewer to feel like he or she is seeing real life. Low budget/ indie horror films tend to lack this element and thus become very artificial in look and style, which becomes distracting.

  2. Quite a few indie horror films do, but independent films also have appeal because they sell themselves on the script and the quality of acting as opposed to special F/X (and fake blood with horror films).

  3. Anon,
    Here are some decent indie horror films worth checking out..
    Ginger Snaps …of course
    Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield
    Also Wilmer Valderama has a horror pic out called The Dead One...maybe I'll see it for laughs.

    And Gacy (I haven’t seen this one yet, but it looks sooooooooo good.)

    These are off the top of my head. I’ll post more if I remember.
