THE BLOODY MAN Poster Uses STRANGER THINGS Inspired Art While Reuniting Two NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Stars

With the success of Stranger Things comes imitation, such as the comic-style art on the poster for The Bloody Man, which is not only in the same genre, but also reunites stars from Nightmare on Elm Street!

There are a lot of times where an actor or actress will stick to a specific genre in their career. This could be due to their interest or their previous performances causing them to become type-cast.

Such is often the case with horror veterans, and although the following actresses aren't "scream queens" per se, they definitely have a few horror flicks in their resumes. With years of experience under their belts, both Lisa Wilcox and Tuesday Knight may have performed in the Nightmare on Elm Street films, but they have mostly avoided the genre in the interim between then and now.

Returning to the genre together in the same movie, both actresses were called for the same part and ended up playing the step-mother and the mother of the children in The Bloody Man, a film that takes inspiration from Stranger Things for its horror aesthetic and storytelling.

ok

Even the poster for The Bloody Man is clearly inspired by such titles as Stranger Things, which is perfect timing as the remaining episodes of that show's fourth season drop today.

Below, you can hear, see, and read our chats with Lisa Wilcox and Tuesday Knight, with a portion of the transcript included.

(Above - Audio Interview with Lisa Wilcox)

Literary Joe: Since the two of you have returned to the same film again, I was wondering if you worked together at all on set?

Lisa Wilcox: No, we don't have any scenes together. And in fact, she was flying out the day I was flying in, so we didn't get to see each other, but at least we're in the same movie together, right?

Honestly, my genre was theater. That's where I started, was theater. And then after theater I did sitcoms, I did episodic, I did a lot of soap operas, and none of it was horror related whatsoever. Even after I did A Nightmare on Elm Street it was some sci-fi stuff and more episodic. Then I left acting for a very long time so I was happy to do this.

Today I had an excellent time chatting with actress Lisa Wilcox. Famous for a number of films, many people recognize Wilcox from A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and 5, and while she doesn't do too much horror when it comes to her acting, we actually met up to chat about a new film she's in - and it's a horror/thriller. The Bloody Man is her new movie, which we also spoke with Tuesday Knight and KateLynn E. Newberry about in previous episodes.

The film is very Stranger Things-esque and peppers in a lot of fun with the scary flick. We also talk about her upcoming film Mystery Spot, another horror movie despite her shying away from the genre, she discusses how important a specific charity foundation is, and we discuss her 15 year absence from the screen to raise her children. There's something in this chat for everyone so sit back, grab the popcorn, and have a killer time!

Lisa Wilcox, cont.: I love that you said "my resume is speckled" with horror. And I would say even more since I got back into acting, all the kids who loved horror in the 80s and grew up on it have grown up to be writers and producers or directors or whatever. They loved A Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th, or whatever, so they'll reach out to me and say 'I have a script unfunded and would you be interested in playing Peggy, or whatever'. So, I would say in the last four years since I've gotten back into acting I've done more horror than I've done in my entire life. Which I love, by the way.

I loved horror since I was a little girl. It's one of those things where Saturday mornings was cartoons, then the Monkees, and then the rest of the afternoon was all Twilight Zone, black and white movies, vampires, Frankenstein - and I loved it. So I've loved horror since I was like ten years old.

In A Nightmare on Elm Street, what you see on film, that's he and I doing it. We had a fair amount of scenes in both films, actually. Then we also did something together called Fear Clinic, and although I wasn't in the show we did make webisodes. So it was nice to work with him outside of the make-up. He's my uncle Robert.

Literary Joe: I know you returned to horror in The Bloody Man alongside your co-star from the Nightmare on Elm Street films, can you tell me more about that experience?

Tuesday Knight: No, actually, they had given me the script and I wanted to play that part of the step-mother. And they were interested in Lisa too, and she got to play the part of the real mother. But we still didn't get to work together. I flew in and she came in at different times, so we didn't get to film together but it was nice to know that she was in it; that we were both in it.

I've only really done like three horror films, so when people call me a scream queen I always find it really funny because I've really only done one slasher/scream thing, and that was A Nightmare on Elm Street.

In this episode, I'm joined by Tuesday Knight. She's known for numerous roles but we mostly focus on a couple of her horror bits in this one. She was in Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and coincidentally the movie she just released, The Bloody Man, also stars Lisa Wilcox, her co-star from the same Freddy Krueger flick.


We talked about her career path, the people she's worked with, and why she loves to tackle character roles so much. It's a great chat and I hope you enjoy it before The Bloody Man scares you away!


The Bloody Man hits digital on July 12th with physical format to follow at a later unspecified date.
