Following the success of his recent features, SICK, a festival favorite and Black Eve, currently
available on DVD, award-winning director Ryan M. Andrews is set to direct his originally
scripted Save Yourself this summer. Scream Queen Jessica Cameron will be starring in as well
as producing this sexy horror flick along with Producer Emma Sutherland. Overseeing the
project are executive producers Pino Halili and Allen Ormerod from multi-award winning studio
Post City Sound Inc.
The plotline for Save Yourself is as follows: En route to L.A., director Crystal Lacroix, along
with by-the-numbers producer Dawn Summerville, neurotic writer Lizzy Miller, and star sisters
Kim and Sasha Tobin, are riding high after a successful screening of their new horror film. But
when Crystal goes missing at a rest stop, their mood suddenly changes. The others, splitting up
to search for Crystal, spot an isolated farmhouse and enlist the help of its owners, quickly
discovering that appearances are not always what they seem. Life imitates art as all five ladies
find themselves pitted against a deranged couple hell-bent on using them for their mysterious
research. Who will survive and what will be the fate of their ultimate discovery?
Having worked together in the past, Andrews and Cameron have discussed collaborating on a
feature for years. Together they decided that Ryan’s script Save Yourself is the ideal choice.
Award winning actor Ry Barrett (Neverlost, Desperate Souls, Antisocial) will join the cast as
Save Yourself’s intense villain. This will be the first time Andrews, Cameron and Barret have
collaborated since last year’s experimental short film Klymene.
Cameron’s latest film Truth or Dare has won more than two-dozen awards playing the festival
circuit. She is also known for such films as the Roger Corman produced Camel Spiders,
currently airing on the SyFy channel, and Steven C. Miller’s remake of Silent Night. Save
Yourself marks Cameron’s 5th movie in under a year in which she is starring as well as
Cameron was recently quoted as saying “This script is the sexiest and smartest female-driven
horror flick that I have had the pleasure to read and I cannot wait to bring it to life with Ryan”
Talking about the female-driven story Andrews says, “I love Jean-Luc Godard’s quote ‘all you
need for a movie is a gun and a girl.’ In the same way all you need for a horror is blood and a
girl – and we’ve got five girls. It’s definitely going to be fun and sexy, but most importantly the
women are not just one-dimensional. There is a lot of depth and development to their characters.
And as a die-hard horror fan, I know just how important this is. It can’t just be another pretty
face. There needs to be layers there for anyone to care when that face gets smashed.”
Filming begins later this year in Ontario, Canada. Expect more Save Yourself updates including
