It’s October and the temperatures are cooling, the leaves are just starting to turn and thoughts turn to all things scary! We’ve partnered with the professional of scary! Christine Parker is one sick chick! Not only does she produce and direct her own films, but she curates and directs the Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival. We’re thrilled to include it as part of Zombiepalooza 2017. We hosted them last year, but in a different weekend from Zombiepalooza. This year, we thought that a full weekend of scary was totally in order in advance of Halloween. We asked her a few questions to get to know her a little better. Here’s what we found out:
Favorite movie in the past five years?: I really enjoyed Mad Max Thunder Road
What’s a book you plan on reading? I found a cool book called Secrets of the Great Pyramid that I plan to read through as research for my new Mummy film.
Why Sick Chicks? I’m guessing this is a question about the name? We had several that we came up with but Sick Chick Flicks and Manic Mojo were tied for our production company name. I went with Sick Chick Flicks because I felt it described us and the movies we make the best.
What’s the best thing about making movies? The really amazing people I get to meet and work with.
What’s the best zombie name? Bob?
