Those Friends for whom the sight of, oh, hedge clippers plunged into eye sockets is a bit too much may wanna stay away from this interview with Dallas filmmaker Israel Luna. The rest of you are welcome to visit Fangoria for just-posted sneak-peek pics from Luna's latest offering, Fright Flick, described on his La Luna Entertainment Web site as "the quintessential campy/slasher who-dunnit flick." Among the stars, says Luna, is "a local stripper here in Dallas under the name ‘Snobby Barbie,’ and she was such a trouper." Sure, I can see that. The trailer's after the jump. --Robert Wilonsky
