At New Jersey’s recent Monster-Mania convention, Fango got a few words with actor Corbin Bernsen about LIZZIE, the latest feature to take on the legendary Lizzie Borden story. The independent feature just wrapped this past week.
Directed by David Dunn Jr. from a script by Leif Holt (who also produced with cinematographer Matthew Mosher and co-stars) and Marielle Seastrom, LIZZIE is about an amnesiac young woman named Lizzy Allen (Amanda Baker) who moves into her childhood home after her father’s death and begins to uncover clues to her past—as well as the truth about the Borden ax murders. “I play Lizzy’s psychiatrist,” Bernsen tells Fango, “and really, I’m the motivation for her to try and figure out what’s going on in her life. It’s one of those movies where I don’t want to tell too much, but I am a motivator to get her to sort her life out.
“It’s a wonderful little thriller I did in Los Angeles, helped some guys out,” he continues. “It was a good script and I had some fun doing it. I enjoy working in the independent world on these sort of super-low-budget films. I read a script, and if it’s good I’ll go hang out for a day. Amanda was terrific, really terrific.” The cast also includes Shawna Waldron, Gerry Bednob, Caitlin Carmichael, Don Swayze and Gary Busey; you can see the movie’s official website here and its Facebook page here.
Bernsen, who is also a director and most recently helmed the zombie opus DEAD AIR, is still developing a baseball-themed undead movie called THREE STRIKES, YOU’RE DEAD, and will also be teaming with veteran genre producer Brian Yuzna on an upcoming feature. Look for more news on that one at this site very soon!
