We caught up with CINDY MEANS, star of PMS Cop, available exclusively from Full Moon Streaming.
1. How did you become the PMS COP?
[Director] Bryon Blakey told me he searched through Facebook for someone “pretty, but who could look really mean” and found my photos through some local groups/friends of friends and contacted me about the part. Up until that point I’ve only had a smattering of acting experience, but I’m such a horror fangirl that I jumped at the chance to play a b-movie monster.
2. Can you tell us a little of what the movie is about.
It’s a period piece. Well, actually, it’s about a police officer who supposedly suffers from PMS and is caught on tape beating a rapist clown. She volunteers to take part in an experimental drug trial (when has that ever been a good idea in the movies?) for the drug Corybantic. Unfortunately, it’s run by an evil pharmaceutical company with a yen for creating super-human weapons. Horrific side effects occur that mutate Mary into a bigger, stronger, merciless killing machine- the PMS Cop!
3. Is there a kill that you are particularly proud of in the movie?
I love them all, but my favorite may be when I inadvertently kill a guard with breast implants. Silicone and stairs are not a good mix.
4. What is your response to people who say this film portrays women negatively?
The movie is very tongue-in-cheek, and I’m not offended by any of it myself, but that’s just me. I will say that I’ve heard a few comments about it being sexist, but I’ve also heard more comments (from women) saying how the character is empowering.
Chocolate. And the body count.
6. What is your favorite killer cop or cop killer film of all time?
Probably the original Robocop. He wasn’t a crazed, killer cop but he was bad ass. Plus, the acid scene really warped me as a kid (in a good way. I’ve been a horror fan since before I started elementary school). I actually had Murphy in mind, with a healthy dose of the T-1000 Cop in Terminator 2, when playing the PMS Cop.
7. What’s next for you?
I would love to work on another film, possibly do something with a more comedic element to the character. I may work with Bryon (Blakey) again in a new project as well. I welcome any and all offers! PMS Cop was an insane amount of fun and growth for me, and I look forward to what’s next.
