Hollywood, CA (The Hollywood Times) 7/26/2014-“A lewd, fussy and fearless scene stealer,” is how award-winning, writer-director Jared Masters describes working with Andy Dick. Dick, one of the greatest comedians of the 21st century, has joined the cast of Deadly Punkettes. This film is the new brainchild from controversial underground director Masters, who brought us the cinematic horror oddities; Slink and Teachers’ Day.
Deadly Punkettes is Official Selection at the 2014 Galactic Film Festival. It will hold its world premiere at The Frida Cinema in Santa Ana, California, August 9th 2014.
The film follows the rise and fall of a teenage girl-band, with paranormal and horror elements. It’s about the lead singer of the band and how she mysteriously dies and haunts the other band members, their new manager and her replacement. It has a stellar ensemble cast consisting of D’Lannie Brown, Lauren Taler, Danielle Stavin, Skylar Ripp, Lourdes Narro, Dave Knapp, Jillean Tucker, Layla Zova, and Dawna Lee Heising.

Jared’s the reason why I have such a thriving career, and I know when I work with him, the final product of the films is something that I’m truly proud of.”
