Sick Chick Flicks
by John Skipp
INTRODUCING THREE KICKASS LEADING LADIES FROM HADES!
Sit back and enjoy, as mad maverick author-turned-filmmaker John Skipp unspools this twisted TRIPLE-BILL of fierce, fun, f***ed-up mind-movies for the wild at heart:
She's a caretaker for Hollywood's broken-hearted. He's a collector of artists and other lost souls. And Death is a party that never ends, in this haunting bohemian L.A. ghost story.
THE LEGEND OF HONEY LOVE
The outrageous adventures of a beautiful barmaid who – in thwarting a psycho killing spree – becomes a national hero. And the target of every wannabe psycho killer on Earth.
Welcome to "Rose's Place," a crazed cable-access/internet puppet show where the songs, skits, and rescue stations run all night long. Or at least until the zombies get in…
Provocative in-depth commentary from John Skipp and Cody Goodfellow exploring the scripts, the filmmaking process, writers vs. directors vs. producers, and the joy of creating powerful, ground-breaking roles for women.
"Sometimes it is what it says on the cover, and this is one of those times. Flicks? Yes indeed, three screenplays. Chicks? Absolutely, strong female lead characters all! Sick? Suffice to say, you probably will NOT be seeing Jennifer Aniston or any of those SEX AND THE CITY ladies starring in one of these... These characters are strong, sassy, sexy, occasionally screwed-up, and kickass, WITHOUT being a bunch of stroke-fantasy fanservice bimbos. We need more of that."
— The Horror Fiction Review
"John created three cool, strong women and really got into their heads. Some folks aren't the biggest fans of scripts, but I found these ones fast-paced and easy to follow. John is very good at characterization and I think these could easily make good prose stories as well as good scripts and movies."
— Dark Discoveries
"Sick Chick Flicks is a fun read. It's classic Skipp. Three stories are included and are anything but typical screenplays — or plots. Skipp knows how to write 'different' female parts — strong females who can kick ass but are mentally resilient and anything but cookie cutter material."
John Skipp is one of America's most cheerfully-perplexing Renaissance mutants: New York Times bestselling novelist turned filmmaker, satirist, social crusader, musical pornographer, splatterpunk poster child, purveyor of cuddly metaphysics, interpretive dancer, and all-around bon vivant.
