Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


On this episode of “New Horror Express”, we celebrate Women in Horror Month with a very special interview with horror icon Kelli Maroney.



In celebration of the final Women in Horror month, NHE host Scott Murphy chats to iconic horror actress Kelli Maroney about her career in horror from her breakout roles in the likes of Night of the Comet and Chopping Mall right through to her most recent roles in the likes of The Deep Ones.

In the interview (the interview begins at 1:35), we talk to Kelli about how she got started in horror, her acting philosophy and her multiple collaborations with director Jim Wynorski. Plus, Kelli tells us some fun behind-the-scene tales from the sets of Night of the Comet, Chopping Mall and The Zero Boys — including how they achieved those empty street shots in Night of the Comet and why she butted heads with Zero Boys director Nico Mastorakis.

Elsewhere in the interview, Kelli tells us how she developed the background for her character in The Deep Ones and how she hopes to see a Deep Ones 2. She also gives us some details on her current projects, including pandemic thriller Staycation.

You can watch the trailer for the The Deep Ones here.


Host Scott Murphy (host of the Guilty Pleasures Podcast) chats to the best indie talent the horror genre has to offer. While the show typically focuses on indie directors, actors and writers are often a part of the conversation as well.

Murphy is a freelance journalist, reviewer and podcaster. He got into horror in his early teens and has not looked back since. As well as reviewing on New Horror Express, he currently writes reviews for The Wee Review and has previously written for Slimehouse TV, Subtitled Online and The 405.  His favorite horror movie is The Shining, and his favorite horror novel is Interview with The Vampire
