Tristan Risk is one of horror rising stars. Since first coming on the scene in American Mary, she has worked non-stop and is sought after constantly. She is a talented dancer, writer, actress and all around fireball. Now, it seems that she may be playing the role we’ve been waiting for in Frankenstein Created Bikers. Luckily, Tristan always has time for Sinful Celluloid and gave us a taste of what we’re in for…
SC – How were you approached for the lead in Frankenstein Created Bikers?
TR – Funny story, that. It must be something to do with Jill Sixx, because this was much the same way I got involved with her short film, Call Girl. I saw the Kickstarter campaign on Facebook and was totally into everything about the concept of this film. James will tell you I called him and threatened a black magic hex if he didn’t cast me, but he’d be lying. What actually happened was I message Jill and asked if they had cast Val yet and if I could audition. I read the script and thought how much I wanted to play this character and how many broads I was going to have to mud wrestle and audition against to get the role. Turns out, James has heard of me and thought I’d make a good addition to the cast. It all came together rather nicely. Having a love for old grind house biker movies doesn’t hurt, either (please see my reviews on Daily Grindhouse if you don’t believe me…)
SC- Is Val like any character you’ve played before?
TR – Nope, but she’s every kind of crazy that I love and the kind of character I’ve been dying to. Her swagger and sneer jumped off the page and I can’t wait to bring her to life. I’m hoping that people will have a healthy combination of fear and arousal when they watch her.
SC- Is there anything you can tell us about what we can expect to see?
There will be boobs, blood, mayhem, and every single line crossed, then snorted. Anyone who is a fan of old school roughies, biker flicks, nudie cuties and grind house is going to, more likely than not, cum in their pants watching this. We might need to give out small packets of Kleenex at screenings for these reasons. Or else concessions should maybe stock up on wet wipes…
SC – Were you a fan of Dear God No!?
TR – There was a Bigfoot in it. It’s one of my bucket list items to watch every movie that has a bigfoot in it before I shuffle off of this mortal coil. So yes. Even Sasquatch aside, it took me back to a Russ Meyer era and a time I’d curl up with my old swain on his boat with a buffet of intoxicants and chemicals and watch old Something Weird flicks. I’m proud to be involved with this project, this cast and this crew.
SC – This film is such a hybrid. What is your favorite Frankenstein film and what is your favorite biker film?
TR – Fave biker film is a toss-up between Switchblade Sisters (which is more girl gang per se) and The Mini Skirt Mob. My pick for Frankenstein is ReAnimator with the mad scientist/Lovecraft vibe. And also because: Barbara Crampton who was a pioneer and is an icon in our horror community.
