Interview With Scream Queen: Elske McCain
In her most recent endeavor Jessicka Rabbid, Elske Wrote, Produced, and starred in the Troma Film. Let's get to know this luscious sexy talented woman :)
When did you start working in the film industry?
I did some extra work for fun when I was a teenager, but never really got back into it until my late twenties/thirties.
Are you a fan of the horror genre?
Definitely. It is my favorite genre.
Do you love Troma Movies?
I wouldn't say I "love" them. I like a lot of them. The ones that Lloyd makes are pretty good!
Does it bring you pride that Jessicka Rabid is now a Troma Movie?
It kind of feels like it has come full circle, yes. It's almost like it was a Troma movie before it was a Troma movie. If that makes any sense.
How did you come up with the idea for Jessika Rabid?
I wanted to do a film based on a female serial killer. I had Matt Reel write it for me while he was housesitting one day. No matter what he says, he was inspired by my dog and his cage.
What was the budget?
It started out at five thousand. Over the years it grew, and now it's about thirty thousand.
How did you raise the budget?
I had an initial investor give me the first five thousand. I raised the rest by money I made by working at the strip club.
For our male viewers out there.... are there chesticles in this movie?
Plenty of chesticles, yes.
What was the toughest part about wearing so many hats on the project?
Having to live on the "set". What a lot of people don't comprehend is that when the filming was wrapped for the day, I was always stuck there. My house was the set, so it was hard to keep a grip on reality sometimes.
What would you tell a young actress if she had the opportunity to do a movie as a lead actress, but she would have to be topless? Should she take it or leave it?
It would really depend on the part and the people she was working with. And if she were getting paid!
Do you or would you cast a porn star in future projects?
Making a film is a pain in the ass (atleast the producing aspect), will you produce again in the future?
I am still on the fence with this. I might, I might not.
What are some future projects?
None really. I was due to produce a film with Pearry Teo called "Is Anyone There" though due to recent health problems, I have kind of put it on the back burner for now. I may be getting a role in a big budget movie in a few months, but I am not at liberty to discuss at this time.
