First of all, could you introduce yourself to the unfortunate few of us who don't already know who you are?


Tina Krause… actress, model, director and cook… just had to throw that in there.


Legend has it you were discovered back in 1994 by WAVE Productions' Gary Whitson [Gary Whitson interview - click here] at the Spring Chiller Convention. Is that correct, what did you do before you went into acting, and did you have any previous acting experience or training as an actress?


Yes that is true.

I was an artist and a graphic designer for a while actually and no, I have no training or schooling or even experience about acting at all.


What can you tell us about your very first experiences on a movie set, and about your first movie as such?


Well my first movie was shot the day I was discovered at the Chiller convention, actually i'ts kinda how I got discovered J. Now as far as being on a movie set that’s a story on it’s own, but it was fun and all new to me so hey, all smiles.


Over the years, you have made quite a few movies for WAVE Productions? A few words about the company and its head Gary Whitson?


Hahahaha, Gary Whitson can be called Gary Wood and he would laugh at this. Gary is cool, he builds his own sets and such and of course we joke with him all the time… My personal feeling is that he really likes to make the comic looking stuff that involves green screen animation more than anything, but he has been at it for quite some time so he must be doing something right. Gary is the company pretty much… he does all the editing – shooting – I will guess and say writing and well I think you get the idea.


Pretty early in your career, you also started making movies with William Hellfire [William Hellfire interview - click here]. How did that collaboration come into being, and what can you tell us about the man, his approach to moviemaking, and the films you did with him?


Willy H … Hummm ya know we are all connected in this crazy industry and of course ya meet new people while working on other films etc. He used to come to my old loft space when I lived in a factory and shoot scenes in my building, then I started working on films with him. He has some crazy shit in his head, but I love the guy and wow, I can’t remember all the films I did with him or for him. Some stuff was funny and some way more serious and even hard to watch cause of the content. He’s totally cool and has always been a good friend to me. I think Will does what he wants when it comes to making movies – he’s not gonna candy coat a flick just to fit in with the masses and I respect that, I really do. My final words about Billy if I were to describe him in a nutshell would be “Bring It On”.


Vampire's Seduction is the film that pretty much put Seduction Cinema on the map in 1998, and at least in my opinion that's in no small part thanks to you. A few words about the studio, the film and its director John Bacchus?


JB might be one of the funniest people I have ever had the pleasure to work with and there has to be a ton of bloopers on that reel since neither of us could keep a straight face for more than a minute.

They have a good studio and well a great group to work with and at the time they were more comedy based and not so much girl/girl crap… Sorry but it just gets real boring after a while. I kinda wish it went back to comedy and straight-laced sexy stuff they used to do cause it was funny… real funny. As far as working with them I can’t say I ever had a complaint… everyone was cool and really nice and the set was without a doubt lots of fun.


After Vampire's Seduction, you have been cast as a vampire in quite a few Seduction-movies (and not only in their films I presume). Is the vampire a creature you're especially fond of?




I've read that in the early 2000's you have directed a movie called Limbo. What can you tell us about it and whatever became of it? And what can you tell us about Tina Krause, the director?


Oh yeah… it’s done - well rough edit. I put it away for a minute because I was working on so many other projects but then came back to it. It’s a pschycological arthouse horror. Very strange and mostly visual with very little dialog kind of shot like a long music video on some level. I wound up shooting and directing the crazy flick, it took approx 4 weeks to finish… all I can say is wow! Later I came to direct a short that won the NYC slam short film fest in 2000 called Phone Tag and then just started directing and co-directing other projects (not my own), but I now am concentrating, and 3 more movies I want to finish writing and directing … should be cool


More recently, you have been in cult director Frank Henenlotter's return to moviemaking, Bad Biology. How did this come into being, and what can you tell us about the man and the movie?


Okay the movie is shot really well and of course it’s a strange one for sure, but it’s cool definitely cool and you should see it so I won’t say too much. Frank is awesome! I love that man and talk about some crazy shit going on in one's head… wow! I was introduced to Frank by RA the Rugged Man who is a friend of mine and usually has me in a music video or two when they come up. I met RA on a set that a director friend of mine was shooting footage for… see I told you this is a small world.


So far, you have mainly been in horror movies, but with Cross the Line, you star in a cop/action flick. Was this a conscious change of pace, and what can you tell us about the movie and your character in it?


Yes… actually I have been in a few comedies and dramas… Oh dear. I play a cop who was married to a detective. My character is a NY/Brooklyn hardass female who also kicks ass… you gotta love it. Lots of fight scenes lots of action and yeah you betcha drama too.


I'd like you to say a few words about a few more movies of yours, quite a few of which I have mainly chosen on the strength and/or weirdness of their titles I have to admit:

Rana, Queen of the Amazon?


Wow well this one speaks for itself… I’m the bad guy lots of jungle activity and one of my earlier works.


Female Mercenaries on Zombie Island?


Very similar to Rana, lots of chicks.


Hypnotized and Cloned Models?


Oh boy this is a strange one I must say… I am duplicated many times


Gosh Darned Mortgage?


Very damsel in distress… has a very comic book story to it, pretty cool, some overtones of slapstick.


Eaten Alive! A Tasteful Revenge?


Aahhh green screen - think Attack of the 50ft Woman.


Shriek of the Lycanthrope?


This looked like it would be good, my first silent flim but not my last… the dinner was to follow for silent films… I play a girl raised by wolves.


Snuff Perversions: Bizarre Cases of Death?




Blood for the Muse?


B&W, it was a good story narrated by the killer. loved the concept and that it's in black and white. Some of those scenes were shot in my old building… Man I love that building. I play 3 roles in this movie.


Quest for the Egg Salad?


No comment.


Clowns and Suicide?


Comedy… Ha! Told you. I play a white trash redneck… OMG wow




Interesting… different directors sending in scene to make one movie. I play a reporter and kinda added the death touch to it J.


Doctor Horror's Erotic House of Idiots?


Another comedy… well, look at the title!


Penny Dreadful?


Very serious horror short with a great cast and the quality is amazing… this short is a must see.


Day of the Ax?


Oh I’m sweetie… but not really… I’m an evil crazy bitch to say the least. Slasher movie… bringing back slasher!


Blood and Sex Nightmare?


Hehehehe not sure what to say about this one… hummmmm.


Pork Pork in Space?




Gone with the Wieners?


Oh comedy western musical… Yeah yeah I know you didn’t think I did musicals, did ya?


She Wolf Rising?


New movie... pretty good


Any other films you want to mention?


Yup… think miss some good ones... The Recovered (very well done), The Thirsting (another well done movie) and of course Salvation by Blood… this is the newest one and has made quite a few film fests… my meaniest acting ever!


Any future projects you are dying to talk about?


Well sure… working on an action horror called The Sundowners and also a stoner horror flick called Pass it Baby (I’m co-writing with Victor Bonacore and this will be packed with goodies and blood wooooo hoooooo) that’s a lot for now really between writing and getting the funding… ouch!


You have appeared in a ton and a half of movies in your career. Any you are particularly fond of, any you regret doing?


Fond of The Recovered, The Thirsting, Salvation by BloodMore than Money’s Worth… waiting for Cross the Line to come out, that should be pretty cool… there’s a lot.


Your films are mostly of the horror variety. Is horror a genre dear to you?


Hummm I like it but it’s not my favorite in the world… I like really strange stuff more and I do happen to like comedy believe it or not J.


You've also done more than your fair share of (genre) comedies, and seem to often give even your serious roles an intentionally comic twist. Is comedy something that comes natural to you?


I think so. There is always an element of comedy in things that I do... can’t really help it... it’s just the way I am… ooops!


You have appeared nude in quite a few of your films. Has it ever bothered you to get naked in front of the camera, and can you still remember your first nude scene?


It’s nerve wrecking at first heck for anyone. 

Think about it... hey can you drop your clothes so the whole world can see your goods and of course make comments about ya. No sweat right? We are all gonna stare at you for a couple hours just so you feel that much more uneasy while everyone is dressed. I think that sums up what it feels like at first, but after a while you basically don’t really give a shit. My first scene… nah I can’t really remember J.


How would you describe your approach to acting, and who are actresses (or indeed actors) you really look up to?


Wow ummm okay… I used to think that acting was just pretending but now I see that a good actor is not pretending at all but rather taking the scene and placing true feelings for a scene… very hard to describe in a paragraph. Let’s just say… there’s more truth to acting then there is pretending. 

Gary Olman.


Any roles you would love to play, no matter how improbable?


No not really that I can think of, but I’m sure that will change in a week or two.
