VICE Meets

Karen Black

When Karen Black is on screen, it's impossible to look away. Regardless of whether you know her from her Oscar-nominated performance in Five Easy Pieces or her Chainsaw Award-winning role in House of 1000 Corpses (or any of her nearly 200 other films), you can tell that she is a force to be reckoned with. So we were excited when Karen invited us to her home in LA for tea and a nice long chat about the art of acting, why she regrets starring in horror films, and her recent musical collaborations with Cass McCombs. Plus, she does a great Raymond Pettibon impression.
