In Big Sky, Thorne stars as Hazel, a young woman consumed by agoraphobia. When she and her mother (Kyra Sedgwick) are attacked by masked gunmen (Aaron Tveit and Frank Grillo) on their way to a treatment facility, Hazel has to battle her darkest fears in order to survive.
As the film’s tagline suggests, it seems all Hazel has to do is “just breathe,” but by the look of the terror in her eyes (and the terribly creepy men she comes upon), it’s not going to be so easy.
Thorne’s silver screen fright debut comes after she was killed off in the opening scene of MTV’s TV adaptation of Scream. She’ll follow both roles with Amityville: The Reawakening and Home Invasion. And by the looks of the trailer, she’s going to have a very promising horror career.
Big Sky opens in limited release in New York and Los Angeles and on demand Friday, Aug. 14.
