Trasharella is a campy 2009 indie satire on Hollywood history that combines horror, schlock and musical comedy that pokes fun at the entertainment industry. Aspiring starlet Helena Beestrom (Rena Riffel) comes to Los Angeles to follow in the footsteps of her B-movie idols. A fortune teller warns her about the curse of Count Smokula (Smokey Miles), a fez-wearing spirit sucker that she met in a her previous life as a silent film star in France. Smokula feeds on the eager ambition of young actresses. She befriends burlesque performer Lucy Les Rue (Mary Carey) and meets the spirits of dead former stars, like Becky Bardot (Jade Paris). With help from her new friends, Helena transforms into Trasharella, a super vixen capable of breaking the evil vampire. Rena Riffel also wrote and directed this dark and glittery comedy about the price of movie stardom, with a tongue-in-cheek style and vampy musical numbers like "I Get High Off Your Pizza Pie."
