Actually, I think this sounds sort of cute, if they do it well. Too bad I'm not really the 'dancing around naked in public' sort of gal... You know, unless I'm being paid... (with actual money - not free pizza and a wam Mr. Pibb.)

Deja Vu

INDIE HORROR FILMS

ShriekCinema is casting for twist-ending horror shorts and a gothic-type feature film. Keith Matturro, dir.Seeking——Females: 18-30ish, attractive, exotic and busty types to play lead heroines, victims, vampresses, gypsies, nurses, maids; Males: 30+, character types for intense scientists, Catholic priests. Note: No experience necessary (model-types welcome).Send pix & résumés to ShriekCinema, XXXXX, NY 11767, Attn: Keith XXXXX. For more info, visit XXXXX. Transportation and DVD copy provided. Pay for leads.

Seriously? This exact same ad ran in Back Stage last June. It's on this site under the heading "Boobs Make Everything Scarier". How many movies can one company make in a year featuring nurses, gypsies, maids and vampresses??? I'm beginning to think the "twist ending" is that you think you're coming in for an audition for an actual movie, but turns out you're really just coming in to make some creepy guy's day.

If you're independently wealthy and can afford to spend three weeks without pay, after buying airfare to Italy (they just said travel to the island was provided, but not from where. I'm assuming just from the main land since, if they had enough dough to buy my international flight, then I feel they could at least give me a per diem), and would rather spend that time "working" as you are "partially nude" with your sister, or someone similar... then I say got for it. Go. For. It.
