Last year, it was announced that Preston Fassel's Our Lady of the Inferno—the first book in the "Fangoria Presents" line from Cinestate—is being developed as a film, and now it's been revealed that it will also come to life in audio form, with horror icon Barbara Crampton voicing one of the lead characters.
Mark Alan Miller is overseeing an audiobook version of the 1980s-set Our Lady of the Inferno at his imprint Encyclopocalypse Publications, and The A.V. Club reports that Crampton will voice Nicolette Aster, “a waste management executive in 1980s Manhattan who moonlights as a serial killer.”
Crampton will be joined by other impressive talents in the voice cast, including Gigi Shane as Nicolette's adversary Ginny Kurva, Autumn Ivy as Ginny's sister Tricia, and Kasey Lansdale as Tammy, a new-in-town target of Nicolette.
Other voice roles are still being cast, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are announced. In the meantime, for those unfamiliar with Fassel's Our Lady of the Inferno, we have the official synopsis and cover art below, and check here to learn more about the in-the-works film adaptation.
"Spring, 1983. Sally Ride is about to go into space. Flashdance is a cultural phenomenon. And in Times Square, two very deadly women are on a collision course with destiny-- and each other.
At twenty-one, Ginny Kurva is already legendary on 42nd Street. To the pimp for whom she works, she's the perfect weapon-- a martial artist capable of taking down men twice her size. To the girls in her stable, she's mother, teacher, and protector. To the little sister she cares for, she's a hero. Yet Ginny's bravado and icy confidence hide a mind at the breaking point, her sanity slowly slipping away as both her addictions and the sins of her past catch up with her...
At thirty-seven, Nicolette Aster is the most respected woman at the Staten Island Landfill. Quiet and competent, she's admired by the secretaries and trusted by her supervisors. Yet those around her have no idea how Nicolette spends her nights-- when the hateful madness she keeps repressed by day finally emerges, and she turns the dump into a hunting ground to engage in a nightmarish blood sport...
In the Spring of 1983, neither Ginny nor Nicolette knows the other exists. By the time Summer rolls around, one of them will be dead."
