Check out the teaser trailer for Mischa’s upcoming role in L.A. Slasher. The trailer is really well done and makes the movie look like a lot of fun, can’t wait!
We are still currently awaiting details of a release date, but with distribution pretty much locked in, it shouldn’t be too far away. You can also read an excerpt from the press release below.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (August 18, 2014) – A new trailer has been released for the up-and-coming film “L.A. Slasher,” directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (“Girls Against Boys”, “The Alphabet Killer”). The satire, which is making waves in social media, has also recently been picked up by Archstone Distribution to handle its international sales.
The film offers a tongue-in-cheek review of reality TV, and the undue admiration for people who are famous for simply being famous. In the feature, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them. “L.A. Slasher” explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior.

MISCHA Barton is renowned for her role as Marissa Cooper in the fan favourite sitcom The O.C.
But with the pressure of being an actress comes the pressure of looking good and dressing well all the time.
In an exclusive interview with OK! Online, the 28-year-old beauty revealed: “Yes, there is a certain amount of pressure. But I think you always just dress for you.”
And of course, since starring in The O.C. Mischa has had to develop her own sense of style outside the teen sitcom character, having just been appointed head judge of VAPESTICK Style icon.
“When you’re playing a character, the wardrobe is a huge extension of that,” the star explained.
“I was pretty far from Marissa Cooper, so the wardrobe is definitely something that helped with that character.”
But when it comes to choosing fashion or acting, Mischa revealed: “They’re totally different parts of my life.
“First and foremost I’m an actress. It’s what I genuinely enjoy.”
And we’ll hopefully be seeing a lot more of the actress as she’s set to star in some other films: “I’ve done a few films this year so those are coming up next.
“There’s a couple of other things, coming up, scripts that I’m really excited about,” Mischa finished.
Well, we personally cannot wait.

Mischa Barton gave up caring what people thought of her a long time ago after admitting if she knew what she does now she would have never set out for teen stardom in The O.C.
The 28-year-old issued a warning to other young Hollywood stars to keep their love lives under cover during an exclusive chat with Metro.
‘Probably not,’ the British-American star mulled on whether she’d take up the role again after her life derailed following fame in The O.C.
‘It’s something I came so close to not doing. I had a really great thing with film. People say be grateful for what you have but it certainly not the kind of thing I was expecting it to be…I’ve kind of seen it all.’
The aftermath saw her arrested for drink-driving and claims she was sectioned in 2009 following a trip to the dentist.
Asked if she cared about her reputation, Barton exclaimed: ‘Clearly not!’
‘That would really do your head in if you were thinking like that. I just like to be seen for the hard-working actress that I am and not for a bunch of extraneous press. In general people are super quick to harbour on the gossipy stuff and less on how much work goes into it.’
She admitted: ‘It’s tough. It’s really tough when you are young in this business. People blow a lot of hot air at you. That’s the main thing. Keep your head on your shoulders – even when you think your head is on your shoulders, sometimes it isn’t!’
‘It’s just one of those things when you are growing under a microscope and changing and that evolution is human. That humanity aspect means flaws – which people don’t want to see. Keep your private life private to the greatest extent that you can,’ she warned. ‘People have this insatiable appetite for it – so how far can you go with that?’
Barton told how it has been hard not to lose her cool over the jibes over her chaotic world.
‘There’s tough balance in being a nice person about it and becoming too closed off and not nice,’ she said.’
The star also insisted she had earned her stripes after spelling out the road to fame is a trudge.
‘People think they are overnight successes even when tonnes of blood, sweat and tears and years of ground work goes into it,’ she explained. ‘Which I find strange about society in general. They think it’s an instant thing where you work really hard for these things.’
Mischa Barton is the lead judge of VAPESTICK Style Icon – a nationwide campaign to find the county’s most stylish e-cig vaper launched by leading e-cigarette brand VAPESTICK®.
