Amy Lynn Best is a trained dancer and actress who started in the business by co-producing the independent feature horror film, The Resurrection Game, and co-stars as the pop psychologist turned zombie exterminator, Sister Mary Bliss. Like many independent film producers, Amy learned the film business from the ground up. On the short haunted house film Tenants, for instance, Amy studied cinematographer from that film’s director of photography, Bill Fuller. Out of necessity, she learned the basics of grip work, camera operation, and the fine art of line producing.
In addition to acting in and producing The Resurrection Game, Amy served the film as art director, additional photographer and craft services. On one shooting date in particular, she fed the cast and crew two specially-made lasagnas, then denied herself her own nourishment due to the fact that she still had to go before the camera in a skin-tight leather-and-spandex costume.
A Pittsburgh native, Amy studied acting and dancing since she was three years old. She has acted or worked on many films and made her feature directorial debut on Happy Cloud Pictures’ Severe Injuries. Amy’s most notable cameo is in Paul Scrabo’s Dr. Horror’s Erotic House of Idiots, a funny parody of the b-movie industry starring Debbie Rochon. An outspoken advocate for women in the horror industsry, Amy co-created the Women in Horror Website Pretty-Scary. In her spare time an accomplished horseback rider and animal lover.
