This Monday something wonderful is happening.
After years of working on our debut feature, DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK, this fateful day has at long last arrived. It all started as a ridiculous title which quickly became an equally ridiculous film. From there, the challenge was on to share that film with as many people as possible which is no small feat when you are a couple of virtually unknown filmmakers. We got a huge break last year when the film had its world debut screening in the United Kingdom during the first ever Women In Horror recognition month. Nia Edwards-Behi warmly welcomed our DEAD HOOKER to her Ghouls On Film Festival.
Now, the film is returning to the United Kingdom. No, not just for a visit. She's being released across the beautiful UK (and Australia) on the 23rd. We could not be happier to have our film being released in the place to first welcome her in. They have supported the film and us from the very beginning so this release could not be more fitting.
With the release a hop, skip, and a jump away we were very happy to get the opportunity to speak with the wonderful Tara Brady of the Irish Times.
"Welcome to the bloody-minded world of identical twin Canadian film-makers Jen and Sylvia Soska, whose debut feature, the delightfully named no-fi grindhouse joy Dead Hooker in a Trunk – 'it’s like Tarantino or Rodriguez remade Weekend at Bernie’s' – is getting them noticed in all the right places." ~ Tara Brady, The Irish Times
But that's just a lil' snippet. Talking with Tara was an absolute pleasure. And the lady's even got a pair o' twinnies herself. Lucky twins.
What did we chat about? Horror movies, what got us into horror, Dead Hooker In A Trunk, American Mary, Lars Von Trier, religion, tarantulas, and much more.

And do treat yourselves to a DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK this Monday!
Thank you so much to Tara Brady for taking the time to chat with us. It was an absolute pleasure and we look very forward to talking more in the future and meeting in the flesh.
