Actress Mayra Leal, best known for trying to kill Danny Trejo while completely nude in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete, is once again up to no good in Maya Entertainment’s psycho-bitch thriller Playing House. The 5-foot-3 Latin stunner plays a disturbed woman obsessed with a young married couple.
No word on whether Leal gets all-kinds of naked in the movie, but the trailer seems to hint so. If that’s the case, here’s hoping she beats her 7-minute nude scene in Machete. After all, actors should always challenge themselves.
Peep the trailer:
The film’s synopsis reads:
In order to afford their dream house, newlyweds Jen and Mitch McKenzie (Sarah Prikryl, Craig Welzbacher) ask their best friend Danny (Matt Lusk) to move in with them.
The plan works beautifully until Danny brings home Blair (Mayra Leal), a stunning temptress who decides she likes what the young couple has and never wants to leave.
The seductive stranger turns the friends against each other and exploits unspoken desires to achieve her own unique version of the American Dream.
Playing House is writer-turned-director Tom Vaughan’s feature film debut. Its premiere was held at this year’s WorldFest Film Festival in Houston, TX.
Cinemax has set a May 13 premiere date for its erotically-charged new anthology series “Femme Fatales.” Hosted by South African model-turned-actress Tanit Phoenix (Death Race 2: Frankenstein Lives), each of the show’s 13-episodes will explore just how far a woman will go to get revenge and/or escape a dire situation.
The official synopsis reads:
Women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile.
The show is inspired by and styled in the tradition of pulp stories, film noir and graphic novels, and takes place in contemporary settings. Each episode features different casts and storylines, some of which are intertwined.
The show’s premiere episode is entitled “Behind Locked Doors” and stars pretty newcomer Kit Willesee as a spoiled, out-of-control Lindsay Lohan-like actress who gets thrown into a cell with a hardened felon, played by Serbian stunner Ana Alexander (Oh, please, may there be a plunger involved).
I gotta say that kicking the series off with an episode set in a woman’s prison is a great way to form a covenant between producers and viewers—a holy union that promises nudity and lesbians in exchange for ratings. I, for one, am all in.
If “Femme Fatales” looks like something you’d enjoy, don’t forget to check out Univision’s “Mujeres Asesinas,” an anthology series—now in its third season—that follows desperate, angry, and often top-heavy women as they viciously discard the men who have wronged them.
AV Pictures has released a teaser-trailer for director Dan Turner’s military-themed paranormal thriller Stormhouse. Katie Flynn, best known for falling out of Jane Seymore’s vagina 29 years ago, stars in the film alongside“Hollyoaks” player Grant Master.
The film’s synopsis reads:
Six months before the invasion of Iraq, the British military caught and imprisoned a supernatural entity at a secret base in the English countryside. This film documents the days that followed, culminating in a battle that transcends their worst nightmares.
Stormhouse will hold its world premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival in June.
