Briana Evigan Embarks On ‘Rites of Passage’ w/ Kate Maberly & Christian Slater!


Screenwriter W. Peter Iliff, the man behind such ’90s classics as Point Break, Varsity Blues, and Patriot Games, is set to make his directorial debut this year with the white-knuckle survival-frightener Rites of Passage.

The film stars Wes Bentley (Jonah Hex) as Benny, a psychotic loner looking to secretly perform an ancient Chumash Indian ritual on his secluded beach side property. An unexpected visit from his brother and a group of drunken, sexed-up college kids complicates matters , however, when their actions trigger the ire of Benny’s deranged meth-addicted groundskeeper Delgado, played by Christian Slater (Heathers).

Also along for the ride are Stephen Dorf (Immortals) as anthropology teacher Nash, a very grown up and bikini-clad Kate Maberly (The Secret Garden) as troubled student Dani, and Briana Evigan as bootylicious party girl Penelope, who—according to Clatto informants—owns one of the sexiest cat-and-mouse sequences ever committed to film.

Rites of Passage is the latest in a string of frighteners starring Evigan. The 24-year-old starlet can also be seen in the Donnie Darko sequel S. Darko, E1 Entertainment’s Sorority Row, the Lionsgate thriller Burning Bright, and director Darren Lynn Bousman’s upcoming remake Mother’s Day.

Briana Evigan is featured on Clatto’s list of The 20 Hottest Women Working in Horror/Sci-fi Today.
