TERRIFIER’S Jenna Kanell Now Takes on Meta-Thriller FACELESS AFTER DARK
Jenna Kanell is set to write and star in a new meta-horror film about a scream queen held hostage by an obsessed fan!
Fans of Terrifier might clock Jenna Kanell’s upcoming role as an indie scream queen in Faceless After Dark as art reflecting real life. Horror fans will recognize Kanell from Terrifier, The Bye Bye Man, and most recently WandaVision.
Written by Kanell and her creative partner Todd Jacobs, Faceless After Dark promises a unique and sinister take on the meta-slasher subgenre. Having been famously pursued by Art the Clown in Terrifier, we’re left to wonder how meta the story will really be…
“Someone called Bowie the ‘certifiably unhinged edition,’” said Kanell of the similarities between herself and her character. “While I wouldn’t go that far, we did take cathartic liberties with some of my real experiences.
After last year’s mind-bending thriller Lucky from filmmaker Brea Grant, we’re ready for more fresh spins on the meta-slasher subgenre.
Jenna Kanell wet her feet in horror with 2016’s splatterpunk Terrifier. Soon thereafter she followed up with another memorable performance in 2017’s mainstream horror flick The Bye Bye Man. These roles have helped cement Kanell as a modern age scream queen, and a star to keep tabs on.
Could be we seeing an Art the Clown copycat take her hostage in Faceless After Dark?
There’s still no word on a release date for Faceless After Dark. Still, expect it to appear in film festivals by the end of 2022.
Most recently we were excited to Jenna Kanell appear in WandaVision on Disney+ and in the acclaimed short film Abducted from this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
