Porn star Sasha Grey goes for the gore

Porn star Sasha Grey has made a few waves in the world of film – first with her performance in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience, and then with her starring role in the Herschell Gordon Lewis tribute Smash Cut and now it seems she’s all set to confuse critics yet again with a role as a bible-bashing virgin in the horror flick Hallows. The film tells the story of:

…little Johnny Warlow a nice, normal boy … until he saw his father cut off his mother’s face with a butcher knife one Halloween night. Now, after two decades in a mental institution, he’s out to prove that he’s all better now, even if he has to kill every man, woman, and child within a ten-mile radius to do so.

According to director Richard O’Sullivan, Grey was offered a more “whoreish” role but she opted to play

Sasha Grey Ventures to the Hallows

What pops into your head when I say that Sasha Grey has a new movie coming out? Either another pretentious Steven Soderbergh borefest or a porno flick where she’s choked out on a bathroom floor amidst a gangbang, right? There’s actually a third option today – one so crazy that it might just work.

HorrorSquad chatted with director Richard O’Sullivan, whose latest horror flick, Hallows, features Grey in what could be her most challenging role yet: a chaste Jesus freak!

Describing the film, the director said, "Hallows basically takes the standard kids-in-the-woods-running-from-a-killer genre and flips it on its ear. The deaths aren't random. They're not cookie cutter. Each character dies in a fashion relating to the way they live their life. I'm less interested in gore-for-the-sake-of-gore (although there is gore in this film and plenty of it) than the psychology behind the characters and how they react to what happens.

Porn Star Grey To Play Stern Christian In New Horror Movie

Porn Star Grey To Play Stern Christian In New Horror Movie
Top porn star Sasha Grey has landed an odd new movie role as a Bible-wielding teen who takes a purity pledge and refuses to have sex before marriage.

The adult film star, who has appeared in over 180 porn movies in the past four years, has signed up to star in new horror film Hallows - as an unlikely virgin.

Writer/director Richard O'Sullivan says, "We toyed with offering Sasha another sexier role in the film, but she fell in love with the idea of playing against type, portraying the exact opposite of what the public perceives her to be."

It's not Grey's first non-porn movie - the 22 year old star won rave reviews last year for her lead performance in Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience.

Ironically, top Christian film star Christina Cupo will also play against type - as a heavily pierced and tattooed goth girl with a fondness for sado-masochism in the movie.

Sasha Grey Becomes Anti-Sex Christian

In what can only be described as twistedly brilliant casting, adult film performer-turned-mainstream actress Sasha Grey has attached to the upcoming horror film "Hallows," playing the role of Eve, a Bible-wielding teen who takes a Jonas brother-style "purity pledge," refusing to have sex before marriage. "We toyed with offering Sasha another--sexier--role in the film," says Writer/Producer/Director Richard O'Sullivan. "But she fell in love with the idea of playing against type, portraying the exact opposite of what the public perceives her to be." The twenty-two-year-old Grey, who won rave reviews last year for her lead performance in "The Girlfriend Experience" (directed by Oscar-winner Steven Soderbergh of "Traffic" and "Ocean's Eleven" fame), first gained show biz noteriety as a porn star, then as a fashion model for American Apparel.

She has quickly earned a reputation as "the thinking man's sex symbol." "It's not what you would expect from Sasha," says Producer John Edmonds Kozma.
