We got us a press release from the Soska Sisters today, and while my usual charm and wit is what makes this site great… I’m just gonna copy and paste the release here- these girls are nuts!
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SOSKA SISTERS:
For sure! And Hi!
Needless to say, we’ve been at it again.
It’s no secret that a major influence on us and our work have been graphic novels. We truly feel some of the greatest stories ever told have been through them. They exist, by in large, without censorship and without budgets, allowing some of the most provocative, unapologetic, honest, and unforgettable story telling there is limited only by their creators’ imaginations.
Today is a glorious and happy day for us as we announce our very first original graphic novel, KILL-CRAZY NYMPHOS ATTACK!, our collaboration with one of our favorite and most inspirational graphic novelists of all time, Daniel Way.
Kill-Crazy Nymphos Attack! is an original graphic novel presented in a grindhouse/exploitation film style. It’s irreverent and raw but, at the same time, it’s a story–an actual story with a beginning, middle and end–that’s infused with relevant social commentary.
The story centers upon Purvis Gunt, a malcontent and pervert who works at a pharmaceutical lab. Purvis is obsessed with having rampant, porno-style sex with nearly every woman he sees but it’s never gonna happen for him because, in addition to the fact that he’s married, he’s revolting in every possible way. So he turns to science for a way to cheat the situation, using the resources of the pharmaceutical lab to create something that will cause women to lose any and all inhibition or restraint and fill them with uncontrollable lust. Purvis, however, is a terrible scientist. What he cooks up is a virus that fills women with not only a lust for sex…but for blood.
When the virus gets out and infects the female population of the small town where Purvis lives, carnage ensues and it’s up to Purvis, disgraced priest Father Osorio and super macho but sexually ambiguous SWAT officer Mack Diesel to contain the situation before woman-hating US President Pole drops a nuke on the whole goddamn mess.

As with our films, you’ll see us tackle some serious social and gender issues in a loud, take no prisoners, whimsical, and altogether maniacal manner. The graphic novel will be filled with iconic, complex, cosplayable characters, including ourselves, for the first time, appearing in graphic novel form as the “Sister Sisters”.
This project is in full creative control of ourselves and the brilliant Daniel Way, so we’ll be launching it via Kickstarter. The Kickstarter is more of an online store where we are offering exclusive items and experiences that are only possible by donating. Our incentives are our way of giving back to our fans who have been so incredibly supportive of us and our work.
And KILL-CRAZY NYMPHOS ATTACKS! is exactly the unadulterated insanity free from any restrictions, creatively or budget wise, that our audiences have been waiting for.
Our campaign launches tomorrow, but you’re special, so you get a sneak peak (lucky you), so here’s an advanced look at our campaign:

TWISTED TWINS PRODUCTIONS
Canadian identical twin sister writing and directing duo Jen and Sylvia Soska, known as the “Twisted Twins”, first broke onto the scene with their DIY love letter to Grindhouse filmmaking, DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK. The film quickly grew into an award winning, critically acclaimed, cult classic sensation, even getting the attention of director Eli Roth (HOSTEL) who praise it saying, “it’s fucking awesome”. The Twins went on to follow up their break through indie gem with the accomplished and genre defining AMERICAN MARY that place horror icon KATHARINE ISABELLE in the title role of Mary Mason, a medical student who gets drawn into the world of body modification and underground surgeries. “Fucking amazing. Extraordinary. A really superb picture. Katharine Isabelle is awesome”, hailed horror legend Clive Barker (HELLRAISER). The Soska Sisters have gone on to be very outspoken about equal rights across the board including but not limited to the LGBTQ community. They’re actively involved in promoting blood donation and create a new PSA for it every February in celebration of Women In Horror Month, on which board they serve.
2014 was a big year with the Soska Sisters bringing a new life to SEE NO EVIL 2 where they resurrect the WWE Studios franchise with WWE Superstar Glenn “Kane” Jacobs reprising his role as Jacob Goodnight and scream queens Danielle Harris and Katharine Isabelle appearing together for the first time. As well, the Twins will be part of the all star director line up on ABCs of Death 2 in a segment that will both shock audiences and be destined for cult status where they reunite with AMERICAN MARY break out star Tristan Risk and numerous other familiar faces from the horror scene. Always ones to surprise their audiences and keep everyone guessing with what they’ll do next, the Soska Sisters completed their first film outside of horror, a balls to the wall, no holds barred action film with Lionsgate and WWE Studios called VENDETTA starring Dean Cain, Paul “The Big Show” Wight, and Michael Eklund like you’ve never seen them before. www.twistedtwinsproductions.net
