Fear lives in the dark: The blood-pumping first trailer for Drew Barrymore's horror film, Animal, has hit the web.
Animal, which airs later this year on NBCUniversal-owned Chiller after a limited theatrical and VOD run, follows a group of close-knit friends who find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a blood-thirsty predator. Holed up in isolated cabin, tensions mount as secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group puts their differences aside and fights for survival.
In the minute-long teaser exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, four friends race through the woods in the dead of night, being chased by said blood-thirsty predator. There's no real indication of what's going on, except for exasperated yells of "Keep going!" -- that enough gives you the sense that they are in grave danger. The predator that's hunting them remains unseen. Instead you hear the monster in the opening seconds and in the closing moments, when it takes one of the four as its latest victim (hello, Eve!).
Keke Palmer, Amaury Nolasco, Parker Young, Joey Lauren Adams, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye and Jeremy Sumpter also star.
Barrymore is an executive producer alongside Flower Films' Nancy Juvonen, and producers Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell, Kelly Smith and Thommy Hutson. Hutson and Catherine Trillo penned the script and is directed by Brett Simmons. Gary J. Tunnicliffe created the creature effects.
Chiller Films and Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films have a vicious ANIMAL ready to pounce this summer, and we’ve got the exclusive first look at the creature created by HELLRAISER FX veteran Gary J. Tunnicliffe.
Directed by Brett Simmons from a script by Thommy Hutson (of such acclaimed documentaries as HIS NAME WAS JASON and NEVER SLEEP AGAIN) and Catherine Trillo, ANIMAL is set to hit theaters sometime in June, followed by its Chiller network premiere later this year. The cast stalked by Tunnicliffe’s beast includes Joey Lauren Adams, Eve, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye, Amaury Nolasco, Keke Palmer, Jeremy Sumpter and Parker Young. Here’s the synopsis: “When plans for a weekend vacation hit a dead end, a group of close-knit friends find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a menacing predator. Holed up in an isolated cabin, tensions mount as long-buried secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group must put their differences aside and fight for survival.”
Hutson also produced with Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell and Kelly Smith; Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen were the executive producers, and just debuted another fright feature, HAPPY CAMP, on VOD.

Robert Kelly (Ghost Town) and Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious) have been cast in FX’s music comedy pilot Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. Written by Dennis Leary, the project centers on Johnny Rock (Leary), the magnificently talented lead singer of New York’s legendary early-’90s band The Heathens.
Kelly, repped by Gersh, Apostle and law firm Cohen Gardner, will play Bam Bam, the Keith Moon-inspired drummer of The Heathens. He still hangs around Johnny, but the years have not been kind and he suffers no illusions about a resurgence of his musical career. Paradigm-repped Gillies will play Gigi, a 22-year-old singer in search of a songwriter and veteran session musicians to record her first album.

Wow. It's been exactly three years today since Liz Gillies Online was launched! I can't even wrap my head around the fact that it's been that long, it feels like yesterday that I started working on this project, determined to do my best to support my idol. And here I am today, writing this post, and it's hard to believe how much has changed since then, and how much this little website of mine has grown and expanded. I feel like a proud mother.
I want to take this opportunity to thank every single one of you who visits the website, shares my posts, reads my tweets and helps me provide exactly the support I dreamed of being able to give. I know there's been ups and downs, but the fact that you're here, reading this, three years after Elizabeth-Gillies.net opened its "gates" to the world wide web for the first time, kind of makes up for all of it :)
I'm glad that I had (have) the chance to see Liz working on so many different projects and experience her being just the amazing person she is.
As you can (hopefully?) see, the site got a little makeover for this occasion. It's a very simple design, but I feel it captures the essence of the pictures I used quite well. I hope you like it, and here's to many more years! 2014 is going to be an exciting year!
Beauty tools are an important part of your daily routine, and now ArteStile will be adding a splash of color to your life every day. Omni Beauty Solutions Inc. is expanding its ArteStile (art-eh-steel-eh) beauty tools Collection with the announcement of Nickelodeon’s Victorious star Liz Gillies designing her own tweezers and manicure kits (trim/file). ArteStile Collection by Liz Gillies is available for order today on ArteStileBeauty.com with North American retailers to be announced.
ArteStile Collection by Liz Gillies includes designs named Zihna and Axia, which were drawn by Gillies herself. Each beauty tool as part of the Collection includes a patented baked enamel for exceptional in-hand feel, all made from Certified Stainless Steel, 100% Made in Italy and contains no chrome, no nickel and no lead making it perfect for sensitive skin.
“I wanted to design my own tweezers because I am really big on tweezers. I used to have really big eyebrows and I obviously tweezed them away. I think having a unique tweezer is really the way to go. I wanted to design my own. Something that is personalized. Something that is pretty. These tweezers feel very different from a normal tweezer. They grip better and they are prettier. Not to bash every other tweezer, but I like these ones,” says Gillies.
“We selected Liz to be the face of the new ArteStile Collection because of her artistic flare and creativity. The designs in the collection were all hand drawn by Liz and every detail embodies her style and beauty. We are thrilled to launch the ArteStile Collection by Liz Gillies today,” says Omni Beauty Solutions President Daniela Di Paolo. “Liz epitomizes the true beauty of ArteStile.” With the purchase of two or more products from The ArteStile Collection by Liz Gilles, customers will receive a velvet pouch for their beauty tools.
