We were able to sit down with Zoe on day one of New York Comic Con and discuss her intense new action movie, Raze, her amazing career as a stuntwoman and actress and her budding career as a producer.   In Raze, she headlines an impressive cast in a sly subversion of the women-in-prison genre. When Sabrina is mysteriously abducted, she finds herself in an underground lair, forced to do battle with other innocents for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is done. Violent and relentless, Raze takes its video game aesthetic to the deepest and darkest places, rarely surfacing for air.

After showcasing her amazing physicality and tough-as-nails persona in films and television, Tarantino muse Zoe Bell finally has a film to call her own, filled with bloodshed and mayhem of the highest order. With a cast of who’s-who genre favorites, including Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks) and a rare performance sans prosthetics from Guillermo Del Toro mainstay and Whedon fan favorite Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Raze announces its extreme intentions from the very first frame. Director Josh Waller has created a terrifying world of savagery in which nothing is what it seems.  Here is a trailer from Raze.

Raze hits movie theatres in January from IFC Midnight.  It will also be available on VOD.

We also talked with Zoe about her most challenging stunts as well as her most challenging acting moment, her work with Tarantino and breaking barriers in the entertainment industry.  You can check out the complete interview below.

I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style at the turn of the millennium and have run with it since then. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- sci fi, horror, fantasy -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, space westerns, some slasher pics and stories / movies / shows related to witches and wizards. I also love comedies -- they make life easier. I've been traveling with Whedonopolis (https://www.whedonopolis.com/) since 2007 and writing for the site since 2008. I'm always up for an interesting conversation about the latest casting and plot twists on my favorite shows and movies. The views expressed on these web sites are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of any of my employers, past or present (or future).
