Sexy scream queen Jacqui Holland (Dead Ringer, Desperate Housewives, Monsters in the Woods) has signed to star in The Mangled, the first instalment in an intended new horror franchise that boasts a salivating cast of horror icons.
The Kickstarter-funded project sees Holland join an ensemble cast of recognizable horror favourites including Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) and Kane Hodder (The Friday the 13th series).
Written, produced and directed by Lawrence W. Nelson II, The Mangled tells the bloody tale of a family celebrating a 25th anniversary on a rainy night in Southern, Texas. When four twenty-something’s come pounding on their door desperate for help. And one of them serious injured. But as the night goes on, we find out the Bates have secrets of their own.
As a testament to the film’s appeal and it’s exciting cast, the film’s budget has already been raised on Kickstarter – with some 33 days to go!
Before beginning work on The Mangled, Holland will appear as Freya in the Thor film God of Thunder, released in December. She recently filmed a role in Joe Carnahan’s upcoming Stretch.
