Elena Kampouris, Sean Astin, and Jeremy Piven star in Vindicta, a serial killer horror thriller directed by Sean McNamara
Sean McNamara has racked up a ton of directing credits over the last thirty years, including Casper: A Spirited Beginning, 3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain, Casper Meets Wendy, The Even Stevens Movie, Bratz, The Suite Life Movie, Soul Surfer, Spare Parts, Cody the Robosapien, Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite, On a Wing and a Prayer, a couple Sister Swap movies, Aliens Ate My Homework, Aliens Stole My Body, and multiple Baby Geniuses movies. His latest is a serial killer horror thriller called Vindicta, and Variety reports that Paramount’s Republic Pictures has acquired the distribution rights. They’re planning to release the film sometime in October.
Starring Elena Kampouris (the most recent Children of the Corn movie), Sean Astin (The Goonies), and Jeremy Piven (Judgment Night), Vindicta has the following synopsis: When a city is terrorized by a sadistic serial killer, a seasoned detective and a newly recruited paramedic are forced into a deadly game of vengeance, only to discover the key to stopping the bloodshed lies in unlocking the truth of their own haunted pasts. According to IMDb, Ian Neligh wrote the screenplay, working from a story by producer Steven Paul.
Travis Nelson (The Recruit), Daniel Cudmore (Twilight), Jaime M. Callica (Ruthless), Bradley Stryker (Crawlspace), and Karolina Cubitt (Autumn in the City) are also in the cast.
Vindicta was produced by Paul for his company SP Media Group. He provided the following statement: “Vindicta is a story about the depths to which we sink to get revenge. We have a great cast and crew that have worked incredibly hard to make a spine-chilling movie that will haunt you in all the best ways.“
I’m not familiar with most of Sean McNamara’s work (I didn’t even know the Baby Geniuses franchise went beyond the second movie!), but the fact that Vindicta is a serial killer horror thriller led by Elena Kampouris, Sean Astin, and Jeremy Piven is enough to get me to check it out.
