Well hello there once again my babies ,it's me Demonica. Honestly, who else did you think it was going to be? This is MY fucking website after all. Dumbasses.
Once again your dear old mama has snagged another stimulating interview with a very interesting new talent, Jame Cullen Bressack director if the exciting new indie MY PURE JOY. MY PURE JOY looks to be a demented and nasty ride through the deranged mind of serial killer and if what I hear is true we are in for a treat. Below Mr. Cullen - Bressack discusses some of his inspirations and dislike and expresses his undying love for Demonica Vansant. Well everything except that last part. ENJOY !!
