An Interview with
Angie Spivey (April, 1999)
Q. What was it like to play the part of a sociopath
A. Well, it was a challenge to delve into the dark
world of a woman like Lenora. She is so totally evil. I
think everyone has those dark recesses, its just a
matter of getting to them, exposing them, and not being
afraid of them. Frankly, in the beginning, I was afraid
togo there because I was afraid of not coming
Q. The character of Lenora is very sexual. Do you think
the way she is portrayed is degrading to women?
A. Absolutely not. Lenoras power is derived
from her security with herself, especially her sexuality.
Although she is obviously insane, she is an incredibly
powerful woman. The only degradation in the film is
manifested in Lenoras exploitation of others
sexual weaknesses. This woman is not an object in any
way, shape or form. I think all the women in this film
are portrayed as powerful in their own ways.
Q. What was it like working with Murad Gumen, the
A. Absolute hell. Just kidding (laughs). Murad was
a doll during the whole thing. He really made sure we
were comfortable under some very stressful filming
situations. Some of the scenes cover some pretty
sensitive subjects and Murad was fantastic about making
sure everyone was at ease. He is a true
Q. So, whats next for you?
A. Next is a trip to L.A. to check out the scene
out there. I want to continue to work in the medium of
film and Los Angeles seems to be the next step for me.
Although I am going to miss being so close to home.
Q. And where is home for you?
A. Now I sort of feel like home is New York City,
but my heart belongs to my hometown of Morehead, North
Q. How would you sum up your feelings about Eves
Preyer and its social importance?
A. This film is really a step ahead in the
genre. The scary thing is that people like Lenora really
exist and they could be anyone you know. Sociopaths are
generally not easy to pick out of a group as they are
usually extremely charming and intelligent. The real
thrill of this movie is that it could happen in
