Today we are talking to Bianca Allaine.
The last time we interviewed Bianca it was about her role in the movie Albino Farm as Bianca Barnett... She since has married director Michael Kyne and changed her name to Bianca Allaine. Today we are going to be talking about her new film Zombinatrix.
N.C. : Good speaking with you again Bianca... I know we have kept in contact off and on since the last interview and am glad to consider you among my friends.
BIANCA: Thank you for having me! I can't believe it's been so long since the last interview.
N.C. : Can you tell us a little about Zombinatrix without giving too much away?
BIANCA: Zombinatrix is a horror/comedy about Mistress Tawny, a popular dominatrix, who is murdered. She mysteriously returns from the grave as a zombie seeking vengeance on her killer.
It is an homage to many of my favorite horror films and metal music of the 1980s. The film is immensely ambitious- it features a colorful cast of characters, glitzy costuming, gory practical fx, a bit of kink and more- all against the backdrop of Baltimore, Maryland.
N.C. : I have seen on your Facebook page that you aren't just starring in Zombinatrix, you are also producer.... How difficult is it wearing both of those hats at the same time?
BIANCA: I'm wearing so many hats! Producer is kind of my "catch-all" title... I co-wrote the story, designed all the costumes, created the character, built/designed sets, put together a casting call, handpicked actors, handled press, and so much more. It's been incredibly rewarding and kind of scary. I really want people to enjoy the film.
N.C. : Zombinatrix.... How did you come up with the idea and title?
BIANCA: That was all Michael! After meditating on what would be something that the public was interested in. The Walking Dead is immensely popular as is Fifty Shades of Grey. From there, he came up with the idea of a zombie dominatrix, aka Zombinatrix.
N.C. : She's into whips and Brains! lol... That's great... where did that come from?
BIANCA: A few days after Michael came up with the title, I created that tagline. It must have just sprung forth from the aether because it just came to me out of the blue.
N.C. : Where are you at in production?
BIANCA: We are about 1/3 of the way finished with principal shooting. We have some filming dates in June and we've set aside August to film all month. We hope to have some stop-motion animation and cool footage to show for our upcoming fundraiser. Once we raise funds, the film will wrap very quickly.
N.C. : What locations has shooting been taking place?
BIANCA: Baltimore, Maryland!
N.C. : The 1980's. Why that decade?
BIANCA: It's my favorite decade of pop culture. I love the movies, especially all the horror flicks. I'm also a huge fan of '80s metal, glam and rock and roll. I wanted to make a movie that was decadent, wild and fun, the ultimate embodiment of the '80s.
N.C. : What bands or genre of music could we expect to hear on the Zombinatrix soundtrack?
BIANCA: It will have an '80s metal vibe, but we haven't arrived at that portion of production yet. It also depends on how much money we ultimately raise for finishing the film.
N.C. : When can we expect Zombinatrix to be released?
BIANCA: Officially, we're aiming for Halloween 2018, but it might happen sooner!
N.C. : In the near future, we are starting a When The Freaks Come Out Podcast and/or Radio show. We would love to have you and Michael on if you would be interested?
BIANCA: Hell yeah! We'd love that!
N.C. : It was great interviewing you again Bianca, but before we go...
I will ask again as I did in the last interview... What scares Bianca Allaine?
BIANCA: Dying before I finish Zombinatrix! Haha!
