Actor Lee Perkins has joined the cast of SLIME CITY MASSACRE, Gregory Lamberson’s sequel to his 1988 cult midnight film SLIME CITY, which shoots in Buffalo this July. Perkins first came to the attention of horror film fans for his role as a paternal serial killer in KatieBird*Certifiable Crazy Person and recently completed roles in PSYCHOSOMATIKA and DAHMER VS. GACY.
In SLIME CITY MASSACRE, Perkins will play one of four squatters trying to survive in New York City after a terrorist attack brings down the financial system. The squatters discover a supply of strange wine in the ruins of a soup kitchen which turns them into hideous slime creatures driven to murderous acts. The other squatters are played by Debbie Rochon, acclaimed horror author Kealan Patrick Burke, and newcomer Jennifer Bihl. Robert Sabin and Mary Bogle return from the original film, Brooke Lewis appears in several flashbacks, and filmmaker Roy (STREET TRASH) Frumkes has a role as a greedy developer.
“I met Lee at a horror film festival in Florida a few years ago,” says Lamberson. “I was screening SLIME CITY and he was screening KatieBird. We stayed in touch over the years, and he and Kealan were going to co-star in another project of mine that fell through. I’m thrilled to have such a top notch cast.”
“Man, I feel lucky,” adds Perkins. “Lucky that I met Greg years ago and that I stayed in touch. I’m a big fan of writer/directors because they create such deep complex characters. SCM will not be your typical horror flick.”
Lamberson is the screenwriter and director of SLIME CITY MASSACRE, which is being produced by Marc Makowski, who co-produced the original; horror writer John Maclay; Tommy Sweeney, who starred in Lamberson’s UNDYING LOVE, and actress Lewis.
