The husky voiced actress spoke by phone about her newest project, in which she also serves as an associate producer, working with her lovable late co-star Michael Clarke Duncan, in what turned out to be his final film role and what’s ahead.
Are you drawn to the horror genre?
Not really. This one was the reason that I watched horror movies to begin with. The first film I was in that would be called a scary movie was The Sixth Sense, and then it was on to other types of films, except for maybe (2009’s suspense horror) Homecoming. This is for me, the first one that prompted me to watch the classics. It got me watching Rosemary’s Baby and The Amityville Horror, the ‘70s one. I like those a lot. It’s what influenced me to want to do a piece like this.
You’re an associate producer on this. What did that responsibility entail for you?
It was very much like a family project. It was like everybody wanted to be really involved. (Co-stars) Michael Clarke Duncan and Devon Sawa got on board and we found J. Michael (Trautmann). I think he’s fantastic and awesome. It was about finding the right creepy boy. He was the right boy with the right look to play this character that will keep you guessing. It was a couple of years ago that we shot this, so I’m happy that it’s coming out now. We shot it in 20 days. It wasn’t a huge budget. I think that’s probably better, especially in this genre. A lot of people spend a lot of money on CGI, and making things scary and it doesn’t always work. For this one, it was a straightforward script about a disturbed boy, and I think it turned out quite well considering (the budget) we had to work with.

Thanks to Caleb for the tip!
Photos of Mischa at the Los Angeles premiere of her latest horror/thriller “A Resurrection” have been added. The film also stars Devon Sawa and the late Michael Clarke Duncan. Several cast and crew members were at the premiere. They were joined
by Tara Reid, who isn’t in the movie, but nice that she was there for support.
The movie opens in limited release in the USA from March 22nd.
Locations where the film will screen include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, New York, Orange County, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Diego and Seattle. Check local listings for specific session times.
This is writer/director Matt Orlando’s first ever feature film and it’s definitely a very impressive cast, production and screenplay. To read some comments from Matt Orlando about the film, click here.

Check out the new title and poster for Mischa’s upcoming film The Sibling aka Resurrection. As we know by now, movies can sometimes go by different titles depending on the territory. It’s currently unclear if this is a general change for the entire release of the movie, or, if the new title is only targeting selected markets. The movie also stars Devon Sawa and Michael Clarke Duncan. The new artwork is via Tombstone Distribution where you can also view the first teaser trailer.
I just received notice from Paragon Studios who have launched a Kickstarter page to help fund improvements to Mischa’s upcoming horror/thriller The Sibling. Anyone can pledge an amount of money and in return you’ll receive a thank you reward based on the amount you pledge. Read
below and visit the Kickstarter page for more information. You can pledge as little as $10. And if you pledge $25, they’ll send you a copy of the DVD which is pretty much how much you’d spend on buying the DVD anyway.
THE SIBLING is a horror-thriller feature film starring Mischa Barton as Jessie, the down-to-earth school psychologist who attempts to help a troubled student named Eli (Jonathan Michael Trautmann), who is being bullied by classmates, while still grieving the loss of his older brother and protector.
What Jessie discovers while talking with Eli is shocking and disturbing, almost completely preposterous. Is Eli really being bullied or is he looking for revenge—or is something much darker unfolding?
The film takes place during a single day and night at and around Middleton High School. Michael Clark Duncan plays the school principal. Devon Sawa is Travis, Middleton’s Sheriff. We’d have to call “Spoiler Alert!” if we revealed any more—and we really want you to be frightened and shocked when you see the film. You’ll just have to wonder: “What’s up with the bloody pig?”
How it works:
Kickstarter uses an all or nothing funding structure. A project must reach its funding goal before time runs out in order for any money to change hands. If time runs out before the goal is reached, no money will be taken from any donors. This way no one is expected to develop a project that has insufficient funding. Fortunately, our film is funded and will be released. We are asking for your help so we can make it even better by employ brilliant filmmakers to polish our gem of a movie.
