INT: Aimee Brooks

The Arrow interviews Aimee Brooks

Hottie Aimee Brooks has appeared in genre films of the likes of "Sorority House Massacre" and "Critters 3". She now hops on the horror train again in Lion's Gate's upcoming monster ride "Monster Man". I got to shoot the shite with Miss Brooks and here's what came out of it.

ARROW: What's your favorite horror movie?

AB: "The Omen" kicks ass!

ARROW: How did you fall in the acting game? Was it a long-time goal or did it happen by fluke?

AB: I started acting when I was really young by putting on little plays for my family. I always dreamed of being an actress and when I was 12 years old I became a professional. Nothing is a fluke in life. Even when I was young, I knew exactly what I wanted and went for it.

ARROW: You've been in a couple of genre efforts, Sorority House Massacre, Critters 3 and now Monster Man. How would you feel if the tag Scream Queen was eventually attached to your name?

AB: I can scream with the best of them, but I’m not worried about being tagged a scream queen. Although I would love to be Queen of something.

ARROW: Taking into account the hilarious dialogue in Monster Man, did you find it hard at times to keep a straight face during takes?

AB: No. Botox helps with that.

ARROW: What was harder to shoot for you, the running away from the truck scenes or the sex scene? Why?

AB: Running. Did you see the high heel boots they made me wear?!!

ARROW: I must commend you on your Yoda impression. It had me laughing like a toddler on helium. Was that bit scripted or did you improv that?

AB: I can’t take credit for the idea. Michael Davis wrote the scene. I spent weeks practicing Yoda on the phone with my brother. He had a very good impression and I just copied him. Of course, I didn’t tell him exactly what his sister was going to do in the scene talking like Yoda. Oops! I guess he’ll eventually find out.

ARROW: How would you describe the atmosphere on set? You guys must have had a blast shooting this! Or am I wrong?

AB: Of course it was a blast. I have the best job in the world.

ARROW: You're presently acting in a film called "The Hillside Strangler". What can you tell us about the movie and your character?

AB: I just finished an independent film called “The Hillside Stranger” about Buono and Bianchi, serial killers in the 70’s that brutally murdered women in California. I play one of the victims. It was extremely moving to work on the movie. Never being a victim of  violence myself, I really had to put myself in the shoes of my character. Believe me, those are shoes I don’t ever want to wear in my life.

ARROW: What's next on your plate after that acting wise?

AB: I always keep busy with acting class and writing when I’m waiting for my next role. I’m currently writing a script which is a hilarious black comedy about marriage.

ARROW: When Aimee Brooks isn't running away from Monster Trucks, what does she do to cut the edge off and relax?

AB: Hey, running from monster trucks is great exercise. Don’t knock it. Alas, there aren’t many monster trucks in Hollywood, so I spend my extra time reading, playing with my animals and doing girl stuff.

I'd like to thank Aimee for her time and would like to wish her good luck in her future endeavors. Keep doing horror Aimee! PLEASE!!!!
