Check the April 5 Tucson Weekly for an interview with Tucson "Scream Queen" Elske McCain, who'll be appearing Friday, April 13, at the Loft's 12-hour Scream-O-Rama event. Here's what McCain had to say about working with child star Dana Plato:

"She was really sweet. Basically, it was when I was 17, and it was really funny, because we were hired as the background dancers, right? And so we showed up on the set, and they were like, 'Are you guys the dancers?' And we were like, 'Yeah.' They said, 'OK, go back and get undressed!' Apparently, they thought we were the dancers--like, the topless dancers. Once they found out we were only 17, they were like, 'Oh my God, no.' It was a movie called Silent Fury that we shot in Yuma, and, basically, I was an extra but was featured in every scene. I've seen the movie once, and it's funny, because you can watch it, and I'm playing pool, I'm walking over here and then I'm dancing. They were so low budget that they used the same five people.

"She (Plato) played a waitress. Me and my three friends were hanging out, and she came over. ... She didn't seem out of it or on drugs or anything. She seemed pretty and normal. She was cool."
