Movieweb.com talks with the Top Gun star about the new horror film, opening at the Music Box Theatre this Friday, April 29th!
The iconic flight instructor is back in a new movie about vampires and zombies
Kelly McGillis first made her presence known to a national movie audience when she co-starred with Harrison Ford in the classic Amish thriller Witness. After that she played with the fly boys in Top Gun and acted opposite Jodie Foster in The Accused.
After a long break from the movies, Kelly McGillis is back in the apocalyptic vampire adventure Stake Land. She plays a nun whose flock has turned into rabid monsters and she goes on the run with Connor Paolo and scream queen Danielle Harris.
We recently spoke with Kelly about her new film, her new marriage, and her former life in Key West.
How long has it been since you were in a major motion picture?
Kelly McGillis: I don’t know. I have no clue.
I’m a big fan of yours. Are you a horror fan or is this out of the box for you?
Kelly McGillis: Totally out of the box. I’ve never even seen a horror movie quite honestly. I don’t really like scary movies. But it was really fun to do!
Where did you guys film this?
