“For me it is a classic horror film in the sense that there is screaming, and it’s gory, and the killings are so amazing,” says rapper and actress Eve about her new film, Animal. Well, that does tick many of the crucial horror film boxes.
In addition to Eve, Animal stars Keke Palmer, Amaury Nolasco, Parker Young, Joey Lauren Adams, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye, and Jeremy Sumpter, and concerns a group of friends being pursued by a blood-thirsty predator. The film is directed by Brett Simmons (The Monkey’s Paw) and written by Thommy Hutson (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy) and Catherine Trillo. Animal is produced by Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films, which also oversaw the recently-released-to-VOD horror movie Happy Camp.
Animal itself is hitting theaters and VOD on June 17 and will then premiere on Chiller.

Fear lives in the dark: The blood-pumping first trailer for Drew Barrymore's horror film, Animal, has hit the web.
Animal, which airs later this year on NBCUniversal-owned Chiller after a limited theatrical and VOD run, follows a group of close-knit friends who find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a blood-thirsty predator. Holed up in isolated cabin, tensions mount as secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group puts their differences aside and fights for survival.
In the minute-long teaser exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, four friends race through the woods in the dead of night, being chased by said blood-thirsty predator. There's no real indication of what's going on, except for exasperated yells of "Keep going!" -- that enough gives you the sense that they are in grave danger. The predator that's hunting them remains unseen. Instead you hear the monster in the opening seconds and in the closing moments, when it takes one of the four as its latest victim (hello, Eve!).
Keke Palmer, Amaury Nolasco, Parker Young, Joey Lauren Adams, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye and Jeremy Sumpter also star.
Barrymore is an executive producer alongside Flower Films' Nancy Juvonen, and producers Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell, Kelly Smith and Thommy Hutson. Hutson and Catherine Trillo penned the script and is directed by Brett Simmons. Gary J. Tunnicliffe created the creature effects.
Chiller Films and Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films have a vicious ANIMAL ready to pounce this summer, and we’ve got the exclusive first look at the creature created by HELLRAISER FX veteran Gary J. Tunnicliffe.
Directed by Brett Simmons from a script by Thommy Hutson (of such acclaimed documentaries as HIS NAME WAS JASON and NEVER SLEEP AGAIN) and Catherine Trillo, ANIMAL is set to hit theaters sometime in June, followed by its Chiller network premiere later this year. The cast stalked by Tunnicliffe’s beast includes Joey Lauren Adams, Eve, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye, Amaury Nolasco, Keke Palmer, Jeremy Sumpter and Parker Young. Here’s the synopsis: “When plans for a weekend vacation hit a dead end, a group of close-knit friends find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a menacing predator. Holed up in an isolated cabin, tensions mount as long-buried secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group must put their differences aside and fight for survival.”
Hutson also produced with Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell and Kelly Smith; Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen were the executive producers, and just debuted another fright feature, HAPPY CAMP, on VOD.

Robert Kelly (Ghost Town) and Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious) have been cast in FX’s music comedy pilot Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. Written by Dennis Leary, the project centers on Johnny Rock (Leary), the magnificently talented lead singer of New York’s legendary early-’90s band The Heathens.
Kelly, repped by Gersh, Apostle and law firm Cohen Gardner, will play Bam Bam, the Keith Moon-inspired drummer of The Heathens. He still hangs around Johnny, but the years have not been kind and he suffers no illusions about a resurgence of his musical career. Paradigm-repped Gillies will play Gigi, a 22-year-old singer in search of a songwriter and veteran session musicians to record her first album.
