Writer/director duo Jen and Sylvia Soska aka the Twisted Twins have gone from unknown underground exploitation revivalists on Dead Hooker in a Trunk, to being lauded as the new Cronenberg(s) for American Mary, and this summer they resurrect a studio slasher with See No Evil 2. Richard caught up with them at Texas Frightmare Weekend, and they talked about role models, wrestling, and why the WWE is putting out a feminist art house horror flick.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
