Malvolia

Jennifer Nangle: WiHM Interview

Jennifer Nangle: WiHM Interview

It’s that glorious time again, celebrating all badass women in horror and I had the opportunity to interview my favorite person again, Jennifer Nangle— also known as Malvolia the Queen of Screams. Jennifer is a very talented woman and is the real deal in the horror genre. She was incredibly sweet for allowing me to ask questions second time around and taking the time to answer them to allow us to see what she has in store for us this year.

Sarah Gregory: What does this Women in horror month mean to you?
Jennifer Nangle:  A celebration of women who hold all different positions in the horror genre. A time where we are not just seen as “final girls” and “scream queens”, but for all the talent we all possess on all different levels.

SG:  Since we last spoke, you had your hands full with 10/31 Part 2 and Paranoia Tapes 5. What can you tell us about your experience with both projects?


JN:
With Paranoia Tapes 5, Jack Hunter sent me a script and gave me full control over the script/filming. I immediately rewrote parts of the wrap around story to make it have a killer ending and connect it to the first one. I was lucky enough to bring on and work with some of my really great friends. I played a lot with the mood of the scenes. It’s a no budget feature, but we already got accepted into a film festival. Who knows what’s next for that!

10/31 Part 2 I was brought on as the familiar horror hostess face and intro/outro’d the film. I wish I could have done more, but time was not on my side… I got to work with Red Rabbit Productions, whom I worked with on The Boneyard Effects webseries with. I think that is the best part of indie horror, you get introduced with people, you click, you stay friends for life. I’ve been really fortunate to have so many people not only want to work with me again and again, but they believe in me, my talent, and work.

SGYou also have been hard at work with Inverted, Desert Moon, and Paranormal (Unholy) Attraction. What challenges if any did you face on each set? With having that many projects together, do you find that each one had a different affect on you?

JN: Desert Moon was incredibly up lifting, supportive, and I was able to just be in the moment. All I had to do was act. ThomasHaley really spoiled me with that during production (i.e. no producing, social media, etc). Everyone fulfilled their duties and then some. We were a team. Being on location for eights days in a desert was eye opening. I learned my strengths, weaknesses, and how to keep going at 4AMwhen we are fighting the sun rise. I filmed Desert Moon and ParanormalAttraction within two weeks of one another. Not much of a break, but just enough to memorize lines, get wardrobe together, and change up characters. Paranormal Attraction was a quick 8 hour day shoot for me. 
I took a lot of what I learned from being on Desert Moon to Inverted. I was on location for two weeks! This was a slower paced filming schedule than I was used to and I feel it was a good thing since the July mid-west heat and humidity literally knocked the life out of me for a couple days. Also, I got really sick during that shoot and I was lucky during this process for cast and crew to quickly become family. Everyone cared and loved one another very deeply and we were all supportive of one another. So, yes, each one did have a different effect on me, but I feel every film set is completely different and will get you through one way or another. I was lucky to have my best friend Charles with me during Desert Moon and Paranormal Attraction and Hannah, Kacey, Deryk, and Jeremy during the down times of Inverted, not to mention all the directors on all of these films were supportive and caring. I am really lucky to always been surrounded by amazing people who care about me. Sometimes set life can be incredibly lonely. 
SG: Do you have any new advice that you would give women entering this industry?

JN: Just do it. Don’t make excuses – just pick up the camera and do it. Also, you have your own original voice. Stay true to who you are! Trust your gut! 

SG: With the success of Malvolia, what can we expect to see from her this year?

JN: I’m not really sure, honestly… Season three was a tough one for me creatively and I didn’t receive many shorts to host. Being an indie one-woman show, one really has to rely on the help of the audience sharing and posting… Not much of that happened and I felt that maybe people were sick of her. I had been approached numerous times to tell the origin story of Malvolia and I really want to try and reach a wider audience. I started to write a feature film based on Malvolia’s journey. I can write short films all day long, but features are such a different story. It’s already been a slow process, but I would really like to start filming it by the end of the year. I will always make a Halloween Special, but we’ll see what happens if there is even a complete Season Four. 

SG: What projects do you have up your sleeve for this year? 


JN:
I have a lot releasing this year… “Inverted” where I play Woman #1, the right hand woman to a cult leader. This film is super dark, evil, and grungy… I cannot wait to see what Deranged Minds Entertainment does with it. “Paranormal Attraction” is a quick cameo, but you’ll see me in a different light. But my favorite, “Desert Moon” will be released where I play the trophy housewife along side actor/director Thomas Haley and actress Sarah French. Again, you’ll see me in a different light and it is my first lead in a feature I filmed. Such a beautiful location with a lot of hard working people. 

I start filming Dustin Ferguson’sThe Last Roommate” along side Julie Anne Prescott in a couple weeks. This one is definitely out of my comfort zone and I am so excited for this challenge… I have always had an insecurity with my body (I mean, what woman doesn’t?) and I’ve started to work out so I don’t have to think about that and just focus on the work. I’m also gearing up to film with Dustin “The Hell of the Screaming Undead” along side Mike Ferguson, Lynn Lowry, Jasper Cole, and Vida Ghaffari. This cast is pumped to get started and everyone just seems so supportive of one another. Plus, it’ll be my first Zombie flick!!!

I’m also attached to a secret project as Malvolia. I approached one of the producers and he passed along my name to the director  WHO KNEW WHO MALVOLIA WAS! Can you believe that? A man I don’t know knew the character I created. That was so amazing to hear. I’m very excited to get started!

Jennifer Nangle: Women In Horror Interview

Jennifer Nangle: Women In Horror Interview

I had the pleasure to interview one of my favorites Jennifer Nangle also known as source link enter source link source ghostwriter service natural viagra holland barrett click buy cialis online uk sample thesis introduction for inventory system levitra trial coupon thesis statement on horror movies college essay writer go arabic homework help online thesis format font argument analysis thesis example get link source steps on how to write a thesis statement see viagra atheletes pfiefer viagra online reaearch paper https://homemods.org/usc/starting-a-scholarship-essay/46/ business essay topics writing academic essays watch essay good sentences source excel essay writing step-by-step vaistai cialis kaina viagra heart disease side effects Malvolia:Queen Of Screams. She is a woman of many talents, acting, writing, producing— she does it all and is the real deal. She was kind enough to answer questions from what inspired her to get into the industry to upcoming projects that she is working on. 

SG-First, what inspired you to get into the industry, mainly within the horror genre?

JN : I’ve been acting in plays and musicals since I was 10 years old. So, naturally I went to college and majored in acting, the love of my life. After receiving my BFA in Theatre Studies, I became really enthralled with television. I thought, “I’ll just move to LA and be on T.V.!” Just like that! Well, it didn’t really work out that way and after auditions started to slow down, I was introduced to “self-producing.” I started out with a friend’s idea on a sci-fi comedy web series and then moved onto drama, but something was missing. I wasn’t “wowed.” I have always loved horror. I was raised on it. But I was intimidated to take on the genre because I didn’t think I would do it justice. However, I thought, now is the time! I wrote and put “Demonic Attachment “ into production. During post, I learned how to edit. Since then, I have been writing, filming, creating ever since! There is something about horror that has no limits. You can push boundaries and not have to be sorry for it

SGWhat and who are your inspirations for such projects, one in particular being Malvolia:Queen Of Screams?

JN : Most of the time, I’ll write a script around an idea that I thought was a little off or hit me the wrong way and I’ll twist it in weird directions until I feel it is right. “The Deal” happened because my co-star, Colton Wheeler, said he needed some footage with him holding a weapon for his reel. Originally I had it where I was tied up and my mouth was bound so I could direct it and not have to worry about acting. But then I thought, this could be a great role for me! I asked Hunter Johnson, who I’d been dying to work with, to direct and he said yes! So I elaborated the script more. Made it so Jade played the game with him knowing all along he was going to get screwed in the end. It was fun. Malvolia is a crazy story. A couple years ago I wrote a treatment for a film series I was dying to be a apart of. The creator hated it, but one of the producers thought I had something and encouraged me to move forward with it. Not being under the film’s restrictions, I knew I wanted to do something completely different and not something everyone was talking about. I went to Son of Monsterpalooza that year where they were honoring Elvira and I was in awe of how many people were in line for her. I immediately thought “YES! Horror Host!” So I started writing. I was really into The Blair Witch Project at the time and thought, “I should make her a real horror host! Generate a little buzz, build up a little fan base, shoot the feature, and then be done!” It didn’t work out that way… People liked her. Like, really liked her. I was not anticipating that at all! And,  in all honesty, I have a blast playing her. She is powerful, controlling, manipulative, has special powers, and is always covered in blood. I love it: so, here I am…thinking about Season 3!

SG-With you being a woman of many talents, superwoman if you will, with acting, writing, directing, producing.. which one do you prefer or did you feel you had to start branching off to do more?

JNActing. I love acting. I love creating a character from the ground up. Being in the moment- there is nothing like it. I do all the other stuff just to act. To tell the stories and play the characters I want to play. I feel like I had to really invest in more in script writing and coming up with creative stories to really do all this.

SG-What are some challenges that you would say women face in the horror genre?

JNI have said this for years and will always say it: A majority of male writers write for males. Even when they write women characters- they are still writing from a male perspective. That’s just how life is… So a lot of times I’ll read a script and think, “A majority of women wouldn’t say this or do that.” Also, most of the time the ratio in male characters versus female is insane. So, booking work and getting jobs is tough and competitive. Being a strong female in the genre can be challenging. I was told a couple months ago that I am”intimidating “ because I make my own movies and write my own scripts. That’s sad to me because, wouldn’t you want someone who is aware of how camera angles work, how lighting works, how dialogue is scripted to be apart of your team to help it be better? I do. I LOVE bringing on people who have ideas and who know more about things than I do. It makes me look better and it helps me grow.

SG: Any advice for someone, women in particular who are getting into acting, especially in the horror scene?

JNI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Just Do It! People get so caught up in everything being perfect that they forget to even make the film. Or they make themselves crazy and just scrap it all together. JUST DO IT! We all carry cameras around with us (i.e. smart phones) and we all have stories we want to tell. Think outside the box. I made a video for Northern Frights Scream Queen Contest in my living room with one light above me and a camera on a stool with wheels. You can DO ANYTHING! JUST DO IT! Link to video:

SG: With your latest project That Night, what was inspiration behind that? Was this the hardest role that you have acted in?

JNUp until ProCo Production Company hIt me the idea of collaborating, I had been rejected from many projects because I wasn’t a “name”, or I didn’t have a certain look, or I didn’t know the right people, I was too strong, I wasn’t strong enough, I mean, the list can go on and on. PLUS, JN the beginning of 2018, I was “me too’d“ by a couple of indie directors who would want to meet up for a “meeting” to talk about a role and when I would get there, the project wouldn’t even be close to preproduction, or even written, and all of a sudden I found myself on a “date.” I was angry. I had spent so many years training in the craft, creating, learning different positions to make films, and then I was being treated like a piece of meat or not good enough. When ProCo said that we could do whatever I wanted, I would just have to write the script. I didn’t have to direct, I didn’t have to edit- all I had to do was focus on producing and acting. To me, that was cake and REALLY exciting. So, I took a horrendous story (I’m huge into 48 Hours, Dateline, Murder Mystery- murder fascinates me) and wrote it around the restrictions that we had. I wanted everyone to see me differently. Up until that point, I had always been a strong female character that fought through this intense journey but then was left with no choice, just exhausted from it all, and couldn’t go further? I am a method actress. I like to make things really real for myself as best I can. I secluded myself from the rest of the cast. I cried for four days straight. I barely slept since we had long days on set and I lived about an hour away from the location, plus, I was producing. Dieting because I was supposed to leave to film “Inverted” in a couple of weeks. Even though I slept for 2 days straight afterwards, I feel like it all worked to my benefit. I feel I showed exactly everything I wanted to show everyone that said: “You can’t Jenn.”

SG-Do you have any other upcoming projects you are working on that you are allowed to discuss?

JNFor about a year now I have casually writing two features. I’d really love to finish one and put that into production by the summer. Malvolia has her hands full with 10/31 Part 2 coming back where I will be showcased through the film AND Indie Director Dustin Furgeson has me hosting 5 indie horror features that we’ll be packaging up as a whole and putting that out. I’m attached to a couple features that are in the very early stages, but one, that I have been cast for over a year now and cannot wait to sink my teeth into is “Inverted”. We’re shooting it this summer, dates are locked, and I feel you’ll be seeing me very differently in this as well. Other than that? The sky is the limit!

Malvolia’s Memorable Thanksgiving 2 – House of Tortured Souls

Malvolia’s Memorable Thanksgiving 2 – House of Tortured Souls

Jenn Nangle (Malvolia herself) is back in a 10 minute Thanksgiving segment which will leave viewers wanting more to bite into. 

This episode starts off with Malvolia’s car stalling in front of her victim… neighbor’s (James) home. Her flirtatious charm and subtle humor and chemistry with James is what really made this as a whole. With James being a gentleman (well so he thought) by offering her to stay and to use the phone, he did not realize that he was going to be her next appetizing treat. 

Both Jenn and James delivered incredibly and with their steamy connection, it makes us viewers feel like we are right with them in that moment she sinks her teeth right into him.

It is clear to me as an avid horror fan that Jenn and her team work hard to appease their fans with each video they put out and I look forward to many more episodes to come especially the holiday segments. It’s the proper amount of gore and humor with a twist.

 Before you all decide to go feast with your family and friends for Thanksgiving, may  I suggest that you watch the new episode right here ⬇️⬇️

Malvolia’s Annual Halloween Party 2018! – House Of Tortured Souls

Malvolia’s Annual Halloween Party 2018! – House Of Tortured Souls

She’s backkkk! The Queen of Screams has returned for what seems to be another Halloween party and everyone is invited. 

Los Angeles, CA October 25, 2018: Malvolia: the Queen of Screams has released footage from her
annual Halloween Party. A fear driven evening that consists of a game, a challenge, and a terrorizing evening.
Four unexpected party goers find themselves “waking up” in the abandoned Kirkbride Asylum only to be greeted
with a death and the Queen herself. After “greeting” and explaining to the guests why they are there, they are
brought onto a journey throughout the Asylum by Malvolia’s trusted bartender/demonic butler, Victor, only to then
face a challenge of sorts. With a cast of characters Malvolia has in her Lair, you are bound to see some familiar
killers throughout the episode.
True horror fans may relate the episode to their favorite cult classics with new victim’s names being “Sydney”, (or
Sidney from Scream), “Nancy” and “Glen” (Nightmare on Elm Street) “Jack” (The Shining), and “Adam” (SAW).
Also, with Malvolia stating that she “wants to play a game” and also asking at the end “What’s your favorite
scary movie?”
Written by the series creator, Jennifer Nangle, directed and edited by one of the series’ producer’s, Richard Trejo,
and shot by Paul Stephen Edwards, this film will see all forms of gore, terror, darkness, and mysticism.
Fun Fact: Nangle grew up down the road from Danvers State Hospital in Danvers, MA (Session 9) which was
designed by Boston architect Nathanial Jeremiah Bradlee who based the layout off the “Kirkbride Plan”. Hence
calling the party location: “Kirkbride Asylum”.
The film was produced by Jennifer Nangle, Charles Chudabala, Hunter Johnson, Richard Trejo, and Paul
Stephen Edwards. Practical SFX was done by Chronix EFX.
Cast: Jennifer Nangle as Malvolia (10/31), Garrett Lee as Victor (It’s Lurking), and Charles Chudabala as Charles
(Crossbreed) lead the cast which also features many of the indie horror scenes rising and veteran talents, including: Brialynn Massie as Bria (Vengeance), Hunter Johnson as Hunter (2Jennifer), Raymond Vinsik Williams as Jack (From Jennifer), Amanda Cano as Nancy (That Night), Danielle Inks as Sydney (Infernal), Cyrus Soliman as Adam (Safe), Adam Schaudenecker as Glen (Lilith), with Thomas Haley as the Movie Exec (The Crossing).

All true horror fans will be enticed by the Saw like vibe with quirky humor and one liners,and did I mention the gore and blood? Oh the BLOOD!!

Being a horror fan, this caught my attention with the creative eye catching similarities to my favorite cult classic films. Jenn was kind enough to let us have a sneak peak and I wasn’t disappointed! Jenn and her amazing team delivered and I can’t wait to see what they will work on next!
