Sasha Grey’s Mainstream Role as a Reporter

Head down to the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles at midnight on Friday for a very special screening of new indie horror/exploitation film SMASH CUT. Inspired by the works of Herschell Gordon Lewis, especially his classic COLOR ME BLOOD RED, this new film stars cult icon David Hess (LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK, HITCH-HIKE) along with young adult film sensation Sasha Grey in her first mainstream role (filmed before her breakout performance in Steven Soderbergh’s THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE). The cast also includes Jesse Buck alongside such fan favorites as Michael Berryman, Ray Sager (Montag from H.G. Lewis’ THE WIZARD OF GORE) and Herschell Gordon Lewis himself.

As an added bonus, the film will be introduced by star David Hess and director Lee Demarbre, with a Q&A following the screening. Don’t miss this one and only chance to see SMASH CUT in Los Angeles!

SMASH CUT (2009)
Directed by Lee Demarbre
Starring David Hess, Sasha Grey, Jesse Buck, Michael Berryman, Ray Sager and Herschell Gordon Lewis
Able Whitman (David Hess) is a horror-film director whose movies are panned by critics and audiences alike — until he starts killing people and using their body parts as props in his new flick. Now, only intrepid reporter April Carson (Sasha Grey) and celebrated private detective Isaac Beaumonde (Jesse Buck) stand between the demonic director and his unquenchable thirst for butchery at 24 frames per second!
Inspired by the career and filmography of Herschell Gordon Lewis, SMASH CUT is a gore-splattered satire of the blood sport known as filmmaking.
