After watching newcomer Ashlynn Yennie eat shit and die in madcap director Tom Six’s demented cult 2009 hit The Human Centipede, I was certain the Wyoming-born starlet would quit Hollywood and head back home to work the mines.
But, when she resurfaced in its sequel last year, it became apparent that Yennie is here to stay. I am now convinced that the pretty 26-year-old has got scream queen midi-chlorians pumping in her blood.
This, of course, bodes well for writer/director Adam Gierasch’s (Night of the Demons – 2010) new Seven Arts frightener Schism, which stars Yennie as a woman in a committed relationship with a Baton Rouge cook with a dark past.
Schism costars Callum Blue (“Smallville”) as Yennie’s boyfriend and Vinnie Jones (Midnight Meat Train) in what will surely be some kind of pissed off character role. The film—said to be in the vein of Adrian Lyne’s Jacob’s Ladder—will shoot in New Orleans.
