What pops into your head when I say that Sasha Grey has a new movie coming out? Either another pretentious Steven Soderbergh borefest or a porno flick where she’s choked out on a bathroom floor amidst a gangbang, right? There’s actually a third option today – one so crazy that it might just work.
HorrorSquad chatted with director Richard O’Sullivan, whose latest horror flick, Hallows, features Grey in what could be her most challenging role yet: a chaste Jesus freak!
Describing the film, the director said, “Hallows basically takes the standard kids-in-the-woods-running-from-a-killer genre and flips it on its ear. The deaths aren’t random. They’re not cookie cutter. Each character dies in a fashion relating to the way they live their life. I’m less interested in gore-for-the-sake-of-gore (although there is gore in this film and plenty of it) than the psychology behind the characters and how they react to what happens. That’s why we’re happy to be working with Sasha. She’s more interested in the psychology behind the action than just the action itself. That’s what she conveys in her work in the adult genre, and that’s what we’re going for in this film.”
To further shake things up, O’Sullivan cast Christina Cupo, an actress who has strong ties to the Christian film community, as a heavily pierced and tattooed Goth girl with a penchant for rough sex.
