If you follow me on social media, I’m sure you’ve seen me post pictures in a pretty serious wig recently, for the part of Rapunzel in Asylum’s AVENGERS GRIMM. Well today, I’m happy to say that it’s been released in select theaters and on VOD, yay!! I had an absolute blast working on this film. Everyone in the cast and the crew made this a exceptional experience and I’m ecstatic that I can finally share it with you. As far as acting bucket list items are concerned, I’ve always wanted to play a fairytale princess and I have to say that getting to do it this way, as one who also kicks ass in the name of justice is the most I could have asked for. I hope you guys enjoy it, and if you don’t have time to watch it right away, check out an exclusive clip below!

So after a year of waiting, HATCHET 3 is about to be released in theaters! Today they released the red band trailer and it looks freaking amazing! See it below in the original EW write up:)
‘Hatchet III’ exclusive: Check out the horror sequel’s new trailer — GRUESOME: ADULT CONTENT AND NSFW
by Clark Collis
Few recent filmmakers have more enthusiastically, or more bloodily, embraced the mantle of horror director than Adam Green whose Hatchet franchise details the gore-drenched ways of swamp-dwelling maniac Victor Crowley. Indeed, 2010′s unrated Hatchet II made headlines when the AMC cinema chain pulled the movie from screens after just a couple of days.
Has that brouhaha prompted the filmmaker to tone down the mayhem featured in his slasher saga? Apparently not, judging by the new, extremely violent, and detached body part-featuring trailer for the also unrated Hatchet III, which was penned by Green and directed by BJ McDonnell.
Hatchet III stars Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, and Zach Galligan and is theatrically released June 14. But you can exclusively see the new trailer below — we would suggest you not do so while eating lunch.
So excited that I can finally tell you all that I will be joining the cast of HATCHET 3! We start filming tomorrow in the swamps here in Louisiana. I will be playing the part of a SWAT officer who goes into the swamp looking for Victor Crowley. Read the full story here:
Zach Galligan to Battle Victor Crowley in ‘Hatchet 3’
by Joseph McCabe, Today 3:00 PM PDT
Another face familiar to all horror fans has joined the cast of Hatchet 3. Gremlins star Zach Galligan has signed on to play Sheriff Fowler — “the quiet Louisiana precinct of Jefferson Parish’s hard-nosed head of police” — in the latest installment of the film series created by Adam Greene (whoseHolliston is currently airing Tuesday nights at 10:30 PM EST on FEARnet). A couple of other prominent cast and crew members were also annouced today. Details after the jump.
The Hollywood Reporter has the exclusive on the latest Hatchet 3 casting news. Here’s the official announcement we just received: “The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively announced additional talent joining the ensemble cast of BJ McDonnell’s HATCHET 3, the third entry in the popular slasher franchise produced by Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures. Principal photography is set to roll on the hotly-anticipated threequel outside of new Orleans tomorrow, May 30, 2012.”
“The trade reports Zach Galligan, best-known from his roles in genre classics Gremlins, Waxworks, and their respective sequels, will play Sheriff Fowler, the quiet Louisiana precinct of Jefferson Parish’s hard-nosed head of police. A New York native, Galligan first rose to prominence with Joe Dante’s 1984 blockbuster Gremlins, and has since appeared in a number of horror, science fiction, and dramatic features. He currently teaches acting at Manhattan’s Stonestreet Studios.
“‘I’m so excited to have Zach as a part of the HATCHET 3 family,’ says director McDonnell. ‘I’m a huge fan of Gremlins and his performance as Billy Peltzer. I have the utmost faith in him, and know he’s going to bring everything he’s got to the role of Sheriff Fowler.’
“Cody Blue Snider, star of A&E’s ‘Growing up Twisted’, plays Deputy Schneiderman, a gun-loving, heavy artillery-carrying area police officer joining in the assault on Victor Crowley. Rileah Vanderbilt, who Hatchet fans know as the first two entries’ “Young Victor Crowley”, will be play Mikaela Dougherty – a SWAT Team member sent in to Honey Island Swamp as part of the search and recovery team. An integral part of the ArieScope team, this marks her first major role in the series.
“Taking on the film’s scoring duties is critically-acclaimed composer Bear McCreary, known for his stunning work on Ron Moore’s ‘Battlestar Galactica’ reboot, and currently featured on AMC’s hit series “The Walking Dead.”
“‘It’s an honor to have Bear aboard HATCHET 3,’ says writer/producer Adam Green. ‘Since working with him on my TV series “Holliston”, he’s instantly become a new and integral part of the ArieScope Pictures family. There’s literally nothing he can’t do – and best of all, he does it all with a level of class that elevates the quality of every project he touches.’
“They join returning cast members Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder, as well as Derek Mears (Friday the 13th 2009), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), Diane Goldner (Pulse 2 and 3, the Feast franchise), and The FP writer/director/star Jason Trost, who were announced Thursday, May 24, at Variety.
“HATCHET 3, which opens on the ultraviolent final shot of Hatchet 2, continues the tale of the now-iconic slasher villain Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
“The sequel, which films outside of New Orleans, Louisiana from late May to mid- June, 2012, is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films and Green’s Los Angeles-based ArieScope Pictures. The film marks cinematographer McDonnell’s directorial debut after having handled A and B camera operations on such features as Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake, Timur Bekmambetov’s upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Adam Green’s first two Hatchet films.”
