Ms. Erotic This Or That
July 6, 2001
Darian Caine has become the de facto cover girl of Seduction Cinema with a series of spoofs she’s made with director John Bacchus. Coyly titled flicks like Gladiator Eroticvs and Erotic Survivor that skirt the line between softcore porn and classic sexploitation fare. Like her idol Julie Strain, the Massachusetts native began her career within the pages of men’s magazines before moving into films and it wasn’t long before The Erotic Witch Project made her a star. Darian’s also a fan of genre pictures who names the Evil Dead trilogy and Night of the Living Dead among her faves. The pierced, tattooed and raven-haired vixen has a full slate of features headed our way in the months ahead including Erotic Witch 3 and a certain fleshy parody that’s had titles ranging from I See Dead Strippers to The Sexth Sense. When not in front of the camera the CineSchlocker favorite reigns over her gothic empire at DarianCaine.com, which is where I caught up with her.
How affected were you by The Exorcist? I saw shades of Linda Blair when you were spewing expletives and writhing in your straight jacket during Erotic Witch 2.
Oh, not at all. You’ve worked with B-veteran Debbie Rochon in a couple pictures recently. She’s a fantastic actress. Was there anything you learned from or appreciate about Ms. Rochon?
Do you harbor any aspirations of going beyond the saucy, late-night cable scene and taking on a lead in a more traditional horror film? If so, what would be your dream role? Killer? Victim? Heroine?
You’ve tremendously raised the profile of Seduction Cinema. How did that relationship begin? There’s a copy of your video audition on the Erotic Survivor DVD. Is that where things started?
You clearly have a very good working relationship with John Bacchus. Why do you think that is?
Oh, he’s among my latest B-idols. Incidently, I actually met you at Chiller awhile back. How do you feel about fan meet-and-greets like that? Do you see yourself returning in 10 or 20 years like many starlets who have come before you?
Beyond the molten sensuality of your performances, you also bring a lot of humor to the screen. Which is easier for you?
What frightens you? What makes your heart race?
Of the films you’ve done, which are you proudest of, and why?
Finally, what should we be looking for from you in the months ahead? Another movie?
We’ll be waiting in rapt anticipation. Thank you, Darian!
