Now available on DVD, VOD & SHOWTIME, bitingly satirical feminist horror/comedy CHASTITY BITES is as clever as its title.
Joining us to talk blood and abstinence are the film's writer/producer LOTTI PHARRISS KNOWLES, director JOHN V. KNOWLES, and co-star, Countess Elizabeth Bathory herself, LOUISE GRIFFITHS.
In the 1600's, Countess Elizabeth Bathory slaughtered more than 600 young women, believing that if she bathed in the blood of virgins she would stay young and beautiful forever. Still alive today, she's found a perfect hunting ground as an abstinence educator in conservative America, and the young ladies of San Griento High are poised to be her next victims. But will her unholy ritual finally be stopped by Leah Ratliff (Allison Scagliotti), feminist blogger and ambitious reporter for the school paper?
Louise Griffiths made her 2006 film debut in '06 horror movie THE DEVIL'S CHAIR, booked her first lead role in dark comedy THE REVENANT, and appeared in ALL'S FAIRE IN LOVE, starring Christina Ricci and Matthew Lillard. She's also recognized from viral ad campaign for Axe shower gel co-starring Jaime Pressly, Axe Cleans Your Balls.
Lotti Pharriss Knowles co-produced HBO Documentary Films’ VITO, produced feature I AM DIVINE, and award-winning shorts SHADOW.NET and WEAK SPECIES. Her original screenplay for CHASTITY BITES was a semi-finalist in the Acclaim Film & Television Screenwriting Competition.

He formed Weirdsmobile Productions in 2005 with wife and producing partner, Lotti. In 2011 he formed Conceptive, Inc. to create broadcast-quality branded entertainment for the web.
