With Valentines Day just around the corner a number of romance films are on their way to release. With The Worst Person In The World having dropped this weekend and Owen Wilson's Marry Me launching on the 11th there are plenty of popcorn flicks for couples to enjoy the holiday.

For those looking to spend the holiday with a romantic film that doesn't fit the traditional holiday mold that most Valentine's Day movies usually occupy, a vampire flick that doubles as a romance film drops on VOD on Tuesday. Bite Me stars Naomi McDougal Jones and Naomi Grossman, the latter of which was on hand to chat with us about the picture exclusively before it opens.

Grossman is best known for her work on American Horror Story and American Horror Stories, having played multiple characters across a number of seasons. She was most notably Pepper the Pinhead who also happened to be the only character to exist in two separate seasons of the "mini-series".

We learned a lot about American Horror Story and Bite Me in our talk and you can see the full video interview between Naomi Grossman and Literary Joe below. Be sure to check it out and let us know your thoughts in the usual spot!

Actress Naomi Grossman gets the spotlight in this episode as we chat about her newest film, Bite Me, which hits VOD on February 8th. We talk about the vampire she plays in the new film as well as a number of other spoiler-free details before moving on to the more juicy details.

Naomi is best known for her work on American Horror Story, most notably her portrayal of Pepper the Pinhead in AHS Season 2: Asylum. Reprising her role in AHS Season 4: Freak Show caused her to be the only cast member to play the same character in separate seasons despite it being shipped as a "mini-series".

We chatted about the prosthetics process that Naomi underwent for the role of Pepper and she explains how and why she shaved her head for the part. As her character is disabled with microcephaly, Naomi and I were sure to dive into what her research on the disability entailed.

With Naomi's background in comedy, she goes into detail about her past with sketch comedy and her work with the Saturday Night Live affiliated group The Groundlings and how it contributes to the over-the-top characters that she plays. We had a killer time and I'm sure you will too!


Bite Me releases on VOD Tuesday February 8th.
