Interview: Sylvia and Jen Soska (Dead Hooker in a Trunk, American Mary)

Sylvia-Soska-Jen-Soska-2

In today’s day and age anyone can pick up a video camera, round up a group of friends and make a movie (Hell, I’ve even done it a handful of times and the results were less than impressive).

How is this supposed to be considered entertainment? Perhaps … Continue reading
