Premiering on VOD and DVD this week, the first-ever “stoner slasher” 4/20 Massacre.
The movie pits today’s hottest young stars against cinema’s next iconic movie monster in a frightening and funny comedy-thriller released just in time for the “The Official Holiday” for weed enthusiasts.
From writer/director Dylan Reynolds comes the story of five women who go camping in the woods to celebrate a friend’s birthday over the 4/20 weekend. But when they cross the turf of an illegal marijuana growing operation they must struggle to survive the living nightmare.
We spoke to one of the film’s stars, Justine Wachsberger (known for her roles in the Twilight and Divergent movies).
What a wild film this is! How did you get involved?
Love your enthusiasm! Stacey Danger mentioned to me that she was doing a horror film that was in the midst of being cast. I jumped at the opportunity and asked her to send me the script. The moment I read it I knew I had to play Rachel.
And would you say you’re anything like your character?
I think all of us have a little Rachel inside of us. She’s blunt, unapologetic, yet human. I would say I definitely have some of that in me. My French upbringing has definitely made me a little more blunt in my life- pardon my French!
How was it to shoot? Looks like it was shot in some pretty rough terrain?
The shoot was so much fun! I could not have asked for a better cast and crew. Dylan fully immersed us into the environment. We all stayed in a cabin together, so ultimately the film and our life started blurring together which was quite a unique experience.
Did you know any of your co-stars before filming?
I knew Stacey and had met Marissa at our chemistry read, but we ultimately bonded once we were on location living together and yes we shared a bathroom. Five girls getting ready at the same time definitely creates fast intimacy.
Do you have fond memories of working on the Twilight and Divergent franchises?
YES! Twilight was a magical experience. I had just moved from Paris. To get to be a small part of that phenomenon was absolutely unreal. I made friendships of a lifetime on that set. The Divergent franchise continues to open doors for me and I am so beyond grateful for that!
