“When I learned my character was based on early feminist Kate Chopin’s character Edna Pontellier mixed with Gustav Flaubert’s Emma Bovary tossed into a 70’s exploitation picture, I was speechless and had to take the challenge”, says Madeline. “This project has truly been life changing. I had the opportunity to work with incredible actors, artists and a very twisted director, but playing Edna went beyond all expectations!” She says. “I channeled some deep dark emotions into my character. Edna Marco has been one of my proudest roles. It definitely reaffirmed my belief that creative stories can still be told.”
Jett is the lead singer for the popular stoner rock band BIGFOOT. He performed the title role in “Jesus Christ Superstar“ and in contrast raised up the devil on stage in “666 Number of the Beast”. Jett is also a member of the band AM GOLD and has toured North America with his band THE ROCK CITY DROPOUTS.
“My character was written with my stage performances in mind. Hell, he has my name so
I just put myself under a magnifying glass and fried away anything decent,” says Jett. “The production was great, what actor wouldn’t want to ride a vintage Harley and play the bad guy? This is the kind of film where you know you’re onto something unique and everyone on set can feel it in their soul. You don’t want the experience to ever end. There is some deep dark literate stuff going on in this picture but it also has beautiful naked women… and like the director told me, that doesn’t suck.”
After being in corporate America for the past 35 years, Paul has returned to his acting roots.

His latest film projects have included “The Ivy League” as well as several independent films.
“I was hooked within the first 3 pages of the screenplay. As reading, I kept thinking “WOW”, “Oh my God did he really take us there?” “Can we go there… do that?, says Paul. “In preparation for my role, I realized I wanted to swing the Dr. 180 degrees from what the bikers were bringing. Take the audience the other way of wackiness, craziness… you know whacked out… just the other way.”
Actress Olivia LaCroix has been a “Rock Star” massage therapist for the past 12 years. Meeting these countless entertainers lead her to join the WWF and walk into the ring with “The Godfather” in sold out arenas for RAW events.
“To prepare for my role as Mrs. Evelyn Marco I would spend hours alone inside a dark creepy basement just listening to the emptiness,” says Olivia.
“My experience on the set was truly amazing. Director James Bickert made the set exciting and super freaky! He was phenomenal at getting the best from our cast by helping them relax with encouraging words and a sense of humor. My transition into Mrs. Marco was so real, I heard it scared him and a few others on the set! I would love to work with Big World Pictures again and I’m very happy they found me. My experience was top notch and “Dear God No!” is going to be the ultimate stoner freak out.”

I felt at home amongst all the guts. I look forward to seeing this on the festival circuit so I can share all the gory details.”

“If you love drive-in movies from the 1970′s, then this is the hook up. It’s back to the basics without all that crappy “Saw” and “Hostel” teenage torture porn manure. The best part is these clowns are using real effects so you don’t have that lazy lab nerd crap like all these wannabe grindhouse homages. What the hell is Hollywood or Austin, TX for that matter, yeah I’m talking about you, thinking? Like William Girdler or H.B. Halicki would do that? Hell no.”
