Multi-talented actor & horror queen Ayvianna Snow (LOLA, White Colour Black, Black Lake, Barun Rai And The House On The Cliff, Hollow, The Lockdown Hauntings) returns with a raft of hotly anticipated new films, including How To Kill Monsters & Punch, both of which premiered at FrightFest (London, UK) in August, as well as the movie Wrath of Dracula.
Ayvianna stars as Velma in How to Kill Monsters, a film described as a love letter to the 80s and 90s horror movies the Director Stewart Sparke (Book of Monsters) grew up watching. The movie delivers thrills, kills and laughs in equal measure, as the sole survivor of a blood-drenched massacre teams up with a rag-tag bunch of rookie cops and lawbreakers to defend a police station from an invasion of Lovecraftian monsters from another dimension. With a menagerie of monsters realised entirely with practical effects and buckets of fake blood and guts thrown in for good measure, it scratches the itch of horror fans craving a throwback popcorn horror movie!
Director Stewart Sparke says:
Ayvianna brings a sinister allure to the role of Velma, a character whose devious actions unleash monstrous horrors.
Punch tells the story of a young woman deciding to have one last night out in her seaside hometown. But it’s not just friends, family and ex-boyfriends that don’t want to see her leave… local bogeyman Mr Punch is stalking the town, and he knows The Way To Do It. As the carnage escalates, Frankie and her friends must fight to stay alive in this seaside-gothic, end-of-the-pier slasher. Ayvianna makes a memorable cameo as a striking but ill-fated party guest who becomes an unfortunate victim of Mr Punch.
In Wrath of Dracula Ayvianna plays Maria, the principal Bride of Dracula. Guided by Professor Van Helsing, Mina Harker (Hannaj Bang Bendz) embarks on a courageous quest to liberate her beloved husband, Jonathan, from the clutches of the foreboding Castle Dracula. Navigating the dark corridors and unearthing the secrets that lie within, they are determined to save Jonathan from the nefarious grasp of the infamous vampire. But Maria assists the Count in attempting to seduce Mina into joining them at Castle Dracula.
Director Steve Lawson said:
I was delighted to be able to work with Ayvianna again (following Ripper’s Revenge), and this time in a much more substantial role – as Maria, Dracula’s favourite bride.
