Outfest 2014: “Days of Our Lives” alum Blake Berris returns from dead to star in “Crazy Bitches”

Blake Berris ended his most recent run as Nick Fallon on NBC’s Days of Our Lives ended with his character shot to death by his ex-wife who Nick was a little obsessed with.

But if you miss seeing Blake on the screen you can see him on a really big screen Thursday (July 17) at Outfest as one of the stars of the suspense thriller Crazy Bitches. The film, directed by Jane Clark, is screening at the fabulous outdoor Ford Ampitheatre so pack some dinner and wine and have a nice picnic before settling in to find out what happens to Blake and company. (Ticket info here)

Berris is among the cast members who will be in attendance.

I saw the movie alone, at home, and got sufficiently creeped out that I got up to double check the front door lock.

‘I loved thrillers as a kid, I loved freaking myself out,’ Berris told me during our recent chat about the film. ‘They are a fun way to experiment with fear in a safe place.’

The movie has eight women (they are the crazy bitches I presume) reuniting for a weekend of gossip and girl talk at a remote cabin in the woods. Then one of them disappears, then another and it goes from there. The cast also includes Outfest faves Guinevere Turner, Cathy DeBuono and Candis Cayne.

‘I work on the grounds of the ranch that they are staying at,’ Berris says. ‘I kind of have (sexual) designs on all of them. I’m the icky local who wants to fuck the tourists. But there is something more nefarious going on.’

The movie was shot in three weeks and Berris was juggling it while still filming episodes of the soap opera. But he was eager to work with director Clark again after previously starring in her film Meth Head.

‘I have a scene that opens the movie with Candis Canye which was a lot of fun and was a new experience for me. It was awesome, she was amazing and I loved working with her. I have a lot of scenes with Samantha Colburn and Mary Jean Wells. And my real sister, Riley Berris, plays my sister and we have a couple of scenes.’

Part 2 of my interview with Blake, focusing on his exit from Days of Our Lives, will be posted on Friday.
