|Ghetty Chasun interview in Killing Moon #2 1994|

Having explained the premise of the film Farmer expressed his hope that the film would follow in the footsteps of other great lesbian vampire movies, such as 'The Vampire Lovers' and 'Lust of a Vampire'. Believing that the timing was perfect, as Hollywood seemed to have revived its interest in vampires with the release of 'Bram Stoker’s Dracula' and 'Interview with the Vampire'. When discussing his association with “rising horror star” Miss. Chasun, the before mentioned abandoned video project crops up, being described as a film about "psychotic abortion clinic protesters”. We learn that after working on Gorotica Miss. Chasun had co-stared in a Nashville production of the B-Movie inspired play Women Behind Bars. Rounding out 1994 playing the sole female role in a Pensilvania run of Vampire Lesbians of Sodom! Movie and stage work aside he called her a radical performance artist, mentioning Sister Nagster and relaying that both Miss. Chasun and her partner were once arrested by the Nashville Police Department after an outdoor performance violated a Tennessee ordinance on public nudity! As the article draws to a close, Farmer shared his enthusiasm for Miss. Chasun’s portrayal as Caroline. Adding that she could be “a bit overzealous in her vampire mode” as she would bite through the foam latex neck pieces as planned, but would also tear prosthetics, gnaw on the blood bladders beneath them, and begin on the actor under the latex! Adding that she had once managed to snap off a dental acrylic fang on fellow actor Danny Fendley’s neck! Closing with “Needless to say, the actress was really into her part!” Now with no doubts that the photo was connected to Red Lips
