WRITTEN IN BLOOD SCREAM QUEEN OF THE MONTH-NOVEMBER, 2015-DANIELLE PANABAKER

792full-danielle-panabaker2

In 2009 Danielle Panabaker was on the run from Jason Voorhees in the remake of Friday the 13th. In 2010 she was pursued by maniacal townfolk in the remake of George A. Romero’s The Crazies. Later, she took a break at the asylum in John Carpenter’s The Ward (also 2010) before fending off razor-toothed fish in Piranha 3DD in 2012. You might say that all that running and fending off has prepared her for her role as Caitlin Snow in the hit TV series  The Flash, a show about a guy (Grant Gustin) with super-speed who runs around the world at least a hundred times each morning before us mere mortals even have our first sip of coffee. Well, maybe not a hundred times but at least ninety.

Born September 19, 1987 in Augusta, Georgia, Danielle started acting at summer camp before joining community theater at the age of 10. Aside from the previously mentioned films Danielle’s other excursions into the thriller-horror genre have been the films Mr. Brooks (2007), Girls Against Boys (2012) and Time Lapse (2014); as well as the TV series Medium (2010) and Flight of the Living Dead (2015).

Danielle’s non-genre credits include Yours, Mine and Ours (2005), Home of the Giants (2009) and This Isn’t Funny (2015). Her TV appearances include the series Malcolm in the Middle (2003), C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation (2003), Summerland (2005), Family Guy (2010), Mad Men (2013) and Arrow (2014-2015).

Let us stop and take the time to salute the November Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month: the lovely Miss Danielle Panabaker!

The Lowdown on Danielle

Graduated from a California high school at age 14, was then accepted into the Scholar’s Program at a local Community College.

Her favorite actors are Paul Newman, Ed Harris, William Fichtner, Hugh Grant and Ryan Gosling.

She has a Yorkshire Terrier named Peanut.

A Panabaker for Your Thoughts

“It’s wonderful. If anything, this business has brought my family together because we can sit at the dinner table and say, “Oh, my gosh, wait till you hear this crazy story. And my whole family always comes to sets with me, so it’s something we can share as opposed to tearing us apart.”

“You can always learn something [in bad acting classes], maybe it’s a technique you don’t like; maybe it’s a style. But you learn different things.”

“I really did graduate at 14, and I go to college in the Los Angeles area near where I live.”

WRITTEN IN BLOOD SCREAM QUEEN OF THE MONTH-OCTOBER, 2015-CHLOË GRACE MORETZ

chlo-grace-moretz-toronto

 I have an unwritten rule that goes along with my written rule for the selection of a Written in Blood Scream Queen. My written rule is that as long as you have appeared in at least one horror movie you qualify to be a Scream Queen; that is unless you’re under the age of 18. I don’t care if a potential Scream Queen has appeared in a thousand horror movies; until she reaches that magic 18 she will not qualify. This brings me to the latest entry. She turned 18 in February. Lest anyone think I waited for her like the assholes that waited on the Olsen twins to come of age I can assure you that is not the case. Let’s get on with this, shall we?

Chloë Grace Moretz was born on February 10, 1997 in Atlanta, Georgia to parents Teri and McCoy. She developed her interest in acting after her older brother Trevor was accepted into the Professional Performing Arts School in New York City.

Her first role was in the TV series The Guardian in 2004. Chloë’s genre credits are for The Amityville Horror (2005), Room 6 and Wicked Little Things (2006), Hallowed Ground (2007), The Eye (2008), Not Forgotten (2009), Let Me In (2010), Dark Shadows (2012), Carrie (2013) and Dark Places (2015).

Outside the realm of horror, thrillers and sci-fi Chloë has appeared in Big Momma’s House 2 (2006), The Poker House (2008), (500) Days of Summer (2009), Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2 (2010 and 2013) and Muppets Most Wanted (2014). She is currently filming Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and is in post-production with November Criminals, The 5th Wave and Brain on Fire.

Welcome, if you will, the October, 2015 Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month the lovely and talented Chloë Grace Moretz!

More About Moretz

She loves gymnastics, basketball and ballet. She also loves to swim and play with her dogs.

Was a model before she became an actress.

She is a StarPower Ambassador for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Chloë Quotes

“My mom has always said that if I get a big head, she’ll take me out of this business as quickly as I got into it.”

“If I ever uttered one word that I said in Kick-Ass (2010), I would be grounded for years! I’d be stuck in my room until I was 20! I would never in a million years say that. I’m an average, everyday girl; when I act with my friends, I’m totally immature, I have to go to bed at 9:30, and, if I’m up late on the computer, I lose it for two months.”

“I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it. I will delete you, and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers. My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it’s life.”

SATURDAY NIGHT DIVA: BETH PHOENIX

SATURDAY NIGHT DIVA: BETH PHOENIX

The Saturday Diva: Beth Phoenix

Saturday Night Diva: Beth Phoenix

BethB

BethA

aka Fabulous Firebird, Firebird, Phoenix

She was born on November 24, 1980 in Elmira, New York

She was trained by Ron Hutchinson, Joey Knight, Robin Knightwing and Ohio Valley Wrestling

She made her debut in May, 2001 and retired on October 29, 2012

Finishing move(s):

Beth Valley Driver (Samoan Driver)

Chokebomb

Delayed Cradle Suplex

Down in Flames (Michinoku Driver II)

Glam Slam (Elevated double chickenwing facebuster, sometimes executed from the top rope)

Glam Slam Stretch (Leg trap double chickenwing clutch, usually prededed by a Glam Slam)

Why she is the Saturday Night Diva:

Let me lay it right on the line for you: I am of the opinion, humble or otherwise, that Beth Phoenix was one of the most talented and beautiful women to ever set foot inside a WWE ring. She was blonde, buxom, and tough and she’s got three WWE Women’s Championships, one WWE Divas Championship and a Diva of the Year Slammy Award to prove it. Ever dominant she would toss hapless opponents, including Trish Stratus, Lita, Kelly Kelly and Mickie James, around the ring like rag dolls. Her time with career killer Santino Marella wasn’t even an issue; in her time Beth Phoenix was the dominant Diva. And then she was gone.

Her Wikipedia page indicates that she gave notice and left the WWE for family reasons. Here is where I get to the crux of why she is this week’s Saturday Night Diva; her Wiki page doesn’t indicate what those family reasons are and I for one don’t really care. It’s her business and no one else’s. What I respect is that this is a woman whose priorities are in the right place. Family comes first over fame, period. Nowadays Beth is with Adam Copeland aka Edge. They have a little girl, born in 2013. It’s not always about wrestling. Welcome this week’s Saturday Night Diva, Beth Phoenix.

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: A TRAILER PARK TRIBUTE TO THE FILMS OF WES CRAVEN

What can I say about the death of Wes Craven that hasn’t been said already? That he was a master of horror; which he was. That he created a character in Freddy Krueger that is as iconic and memorable as Frankenstein’s monster or Count Dracula; which he did. Was all of his movies absolute perfection in every way? No. Bad or good, though, the one thing they could never be called is boring. From Krug in The Last House on the Left to Ghostface in the Scream series of films Craven gave us characters that will not be forgotten and for that reason we will not forget him.

As tribute to Wes Craven I present to you the trailers from his many genre films. If I couldn’t find the trailer then I present to you the film in its entirety; if I couldn’t find either then I humbly apologize. Here, in chronological order, is a Friday Night at the Trailer Park tribute to the films of Wes Craven.
