In A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, Wilcox played main character Alice Johnson while Knight takes over the role of Kristen Parker. Knight had also contributed to that movie’s soundtrack. Fans of the franchise greatly appreciate the two of them, though they don’t share the screen in The Bloody Man, and can be enjoyed with their separate scenes.
“I play a very sympathetic character,” Lisa Wilcox has said of her role in a previous interview with Absolute Underground. “A mother tragically killed in an automobile accident. My scenes are for the most part flashbacks. I love this film! Though Tuesday Knight and I are in the same film, we don’t have any scenes together. Next time!”
Of her Alice role in the Elm Street franchise, Wilcox added, “Yes, Freddy is a Dream Master, a Nightmare Master. Alice is just learning and beat the odds. As far as Robert himself, we are friends as all of us are. He is my Uncle Robert. We all share tremendous respect for each other. Even better, we all sincerely care about each other. We are a family. I just don’t see myself in the category of Scream Queen. Alice is a heroine. Is there a difference? I don’t know. You tell me. I’m definitely screaming for another NoES film to find out what the heck happened to Alice and Jacob!”
“I have a film coming out … called The Bloody Man which I’m very proud of,” Tuesday Knight also said in a separate interview with Train Wreckd Society, revealing she also provided original music for the movie. “The director Daniel Benedict is just a prize to work with and he’s also a great personal friend. I wrote 4 songs for that film. One being the theme song which I wrote with my partner, singer/songwriter and producer David Leon.”
The Bloody Man will be released on digital on July 12, 2022, followed by a release on physical formats later.
