Actress Kristin Booth Discusses “Below Zero”
Actress Kristin Booth is seeing double. The multi-talented and Gemini award-winning actress has dual roles in the horror/thriller “Below Zero”; a film in which she stars alongside Edward Furlong (Terminator 2) and horror legend, Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes).
Written by Signe Olynyk, Below Zero tells the story of ‘Jack The Hack’, a once successful screenwriter who now suffers from a severe case of writers block. In a rather extreme attempt to cure him of his “ailment”, his agent forces him to spend five days in a meat locker to help clear his head. When the temperature drops, the lines between fiction and reality blur as both he and a young mother (Booth) are stalked by a cleaver-wielding psychopath…..or are they?
With exquisite cinematography and multiple story lines that keep you guessing until the very end, Below Zero is a thrill ride from start to finish.
I had the opportunity to speak with Kristin about her Below Zero experience and much more in this exclusive interview!
goJimmygo (gJg): What attracted you most to your role in Below Zero?
Kristin Booth (KB): The idea of playing two characters and the challenge of doing that really interested me and made me want to be a part of the project.
gJg: Are you a big fan of the horror genre?
KB: I am a huge fan! I had never actually been in one before but my best friend and I have rented pretty much every horror movie there is. We just love watching them and getting the crap scared out of us.
gJg: Well, then I have to ask you: What’s your favorite horror movie of all time?
KB: That’s a good question. We both had gone to see Texas Chainsaw Massacre when it was in the theater. I remember, we ran screaming from the car to the house; that’s how scared we were! It scared the bejeezus out of us. I’d have to say that film because of the sheer thrill we got out of it.Continued on the next page
