The versatile performer and reigning queen of horror, Ayvianna Snow, known for her roles in films like "LOLA," "White Colour Black," "Black Lake," "Barun Rai And The House On The Cliff," "Hollow," and "The Lockdown Hauntings," is set to make a triumphant return with a lineup of highly anticipated new movies. Among them are "How To Kill Monsters" and "Punch," both set to premiere at this month's FrightFest, as well as the upcoming film "Wrath of Dracula."
In "How to Kill Monsters," Ayvianna takes on the character of Velma. The film, directed by Stewart Sparke (known for "Book of Monsters"), pays homage to the horror movies of the 80s and 90s that influenced the director's upbringing. This thrilling and humorous movie follows the lone survivor of a gruesome massacre as she joins forces with a motley crew of rookie cops and miscreants to protect a police station from an invasion of Lovecraftian monsters from a different dimension. The movie's practical effects bring an array of monsters to life, accompanied by copious amounts of fake blood and gore, satisfying the craving of horror aficionados for classic popcorn horror entertainment.
Director Stewart Sparke says, “Ayvianna brings a sinister allure to the role of Velma, a character whose devious actions unleash monstrous horrors”.
"Punch" narrates the tale of a young woman's decision to have a final night out in her coastal hometown. However, her departure isn't opposed solely by friends, family, and ex-partners; the local boogeyman, Mr. Punch, is lurking, ready to carry out his sinister intentions. As chaos ensues, Frankie and her companions must fight for survival in this end-of-the-pier slasher with a seaside-gothic twist. Ayvianna's appearance is noteworthy as she plays a striking yet unfortunate party guest who falls victim to Mr. Punch's horrors.
In "Wrath of Dracula," Ayvianna assumes the role of Maria, the primary Bride of Dracula. Led by Professor Van Helsing, Mina Harker (played by Hannaj Bang Bendz) embarks on a brave journey to rescue her beloved husband, Jonathan, from the clutches of the ominous Castle Dracula. As they navigate the shadows and uncover the castle's hidden secrets, they are resolute in their mission to free Jonathan from the clutches of the infamous vampire. However, Maria aligns herself with the Count's efforts to entice 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."
