Director's Cut: Press Release: "CULVER CITY, Calif., January 18, 2016 -- Actress Kirsty Hill is sexing up "Director's Cut", a new comedy-horror film from director Adam Rifkin and Penn Jillette (Penn & Teller), with a starring turn as Summer in the film's opening sequence.

Hill co-stars alongside Jillette, Missi Pyle (“Gone Girl”), Harry Hamlin (“Mad Men”), Nestor Carbonell (“The Dark Knight”) and Lin Shaye (“There's Something About Mary").

The movie, which was made on a $1.1 million budget thanks to the filmmakers' crowdfunding efforts via FundAnything.com, is officially launching the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival Friday, January 22nd in Park City, Utah.

"I'm very proud to be in this movie and very excited that it has been selected to open Slamdance," said Hill. "It's a wild movie that I think will blow people's minds."

The Welsh-born blue-eyed actress has recently appeared in Sony Pictures’ “The Hungover Games”, Danny Glover’s “Bad Asses” and Marlon Wayans’ “A Haunted House 2”, and has four more films set for release later in 2016.

In "Director's Cut", Jillette - who also wrote and produced the film - plays a stalker who kidnaps his favorite movie actress (Pyle) and forces her to star in his movie. Rifkin's ("Detroit Rock City") playful direction hits all the right notes in this suspense-thriller.

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
