If there’s anything that the horror genre loves more than a horror celebrity; it’s got to be a scream queen. Jessica Cameron is one of the fresh new faces leading the horror genre into the new millennium along with names like the Soska Sisters, Eli Roth and Ti West. Hot off the success of her independent feature Truth or Dare, Cameron is embarking on her most ambitious project yet. Read on for some details and a killer sneak peak.
The plot of the film revolves around two lesbian lovers who flee their home and travel cross country after a brutal murder. The movie stars Ellie Church ( Time to Kill, Headless) in the lead role of Mel.
Mania is scheduled to start the festival circuit later this year. Fans are encouraged to ask for it at their favorite festival.
MANIA was one of three features that were filmed simultaneously while traveling across the United States in an RV. Desolation was the other narrative feature, which is a modern hitch hiker tale in which Cameron stars along side Carlo Mendez (The Bay, The Second Coming of Christ). Kill the PA will be the feature length documentary that chronicles the making of both movies, giving the fans an eye opening, honest look into how indie films are made.
Cameron launched her directing career with the multiaward winning film Truth or Dare which went on to win 33 awards across the globe at various film festivals including the Twin Cities Film Festival, Frightfest London, and Monster Fest in Australia, amongst others. She reteamed with Truth or Dare cohorts Mem Ferda ( The Devil’s Double, Hyena ) and Jonathan Scott Higgins ( Utero ). Ferda produced, with Higgins and Cameron executive producing from a script by Higgins.
“ I’m so excited to share this fun little tease from my feature MANIA. This is one of the sexiest films that I have seen in long time, and I know fans are going to love it as much as I do. This film is as naughty as Truth Or Dare is dirty. ”
