Melantha Blackthorne is a talented starlet who was recently named “Scream Queen Of The 21st Century” by David L Tamarin of Scars Magazine. She has starred in such films as ‘She Demons of the Black Sun’, ‘Prison Of The Psychotic Damned’, ‘Order Of One’, ‘Purple Glow’, ‘Tender Flesh for Zombie Goddess’, ‘Countess Bathoria’s Graveyard Picture Show’, ‘Rise Of The Ghosts’ as well as several projects in post and pre production.
Melantha also co-owns Robomonkey Productions, which recently released her directorial debut ‘Sinners And Saints’, receiving much critical acclaim from numerous horror magazines and websites.
As a young girl Melantha was always writing little horror stories and eventually borrowed her father’s video camera to create mini home movies. As she grew, her taste for horror evolved into something of a fetish and she began exploring new and unique ways of expressing herself. In 1999 she created the web character Countess Bathoria that quickly gained popularity and legions of fans. Her popularity in the genre has now made its way to the big screen, and she is in demand as a performer and director of independent horror films.
Melantha is also a well-known horror and fetish model, strutting her voluptuous figure through the pages of Playboy, Draculina, Dynamite, Bite Me, Leash, The Scream and Scars magazine to name but a few. She is also an editor for Old Nick and Insomnia magazine often writing about her experiences on the indie scene.
