Remind us never to piss off Abigail Breslin.
Before the 19-year-old actress scares the living daylights out of us in Fox’s anticipated horror-comedy Scream Queens, Breslin stars in the indie thriller Final Girl from celebrity photographer Tyler Shields in his directorial debut.
In the film, which co-stars Alexander Ludwig, Wes Bentley, Francesca Eastwood and Cameron Bright, Breslin plays a beautiful vixen Veronica whom Bentley trains in order to assassinate a group of sadistic boys who regularly murder women for fun. When they target Veronica as their next victim, they quickly realize that they messed with the wrong girl.
Getting chills yet?
In a scene from Final Girl, which ETonline exclusively debuts, William (Bentley) teaches Veronica how to become a cold-hearted assassin as they stand by a serene lake in the middle of the woods as he details their plan to lure the boys to their final fates.
“Keep standin’ there,” he tells Veronica as she stays put on the rocks by the water. “You need to know what it’s like to not to be able to feel your feet. You’ll be chasing these boys through the woods in the middle of the night with no shoes on – cold and wet.”
When Veronica asks the logical question, “Why can’t I just shoot them?,” William fires back with a frightening offer. “Shoot me,” he dares. And when she bristles at the thought, he continues to poke and prod, “Are you scared?” Veronica admits she doesn’t want to “kill” him, so William settles for this, “Then wound me ... It’s an order.”
Will she go through with it?
Breslin recalled the no-holds-barred approach to filming the indie, which caused the cast and crew to grow closer as a result.
"The first day of filming, we shot a lot of the training scenes with me and Wes. I knew this was going to be an intense shoot because everyone was doing their own stunts,” Breslin, whose book This May Sound Crazy hits stores Oct. 6, exclusively tells ETonline in a statement. “Working with the cast, Tyler and Wes made it so much fun and it definitely made us all bond very quickly. It ended up being one of the most exciting shoots I've ever done."
Final Girl will be released via VOD on Friday and is available on iTunes.
