Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 46: Katherine McNamara - 'Untitled Horror Movie' Interview

On this episode of the Geektown Behind The Scenes podcast, I am chatting with actress Katherine McNamara about her new film 'Untitled Horror Movie'.

Katherine, you will probably know as Mia from The CW series 'Arrow', Clary Fray on the supernatural drama 'Shadowhunters', or Sonya in the 'Maze Runner' films. More recently she has appeared in the CBS adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Stand', and now re-teams with her 'Shadowhunters' castmate Luke Baines in the wonderfully fun 'Untitled Horror Movie'.

'Untitled Horror Movie' is described as a comedy about making a horror movie by Nick Simon, the director who brought you, 2017 film 'Truth or Dare'. When six co-stars learn their hit TV show is about to be cancelled, they decide to shoot their own movie - after all, how hard can it be? Stuck for a plot, they unintentionally summon a demonic spirit with an affinity for violence that starts picking them off, one vapid actor at a time.

The film stars Luke Baines and Katherine McNamara from 'Shadowhunters', Claire Holt ('Vampire Diaries'), Emmy Raver-Lampman ('The Umbrella Academy'), Darren Barnet ('Never Have I Ever') and Tim Granaderos ('13 Reasons Why') as the main six.

There are also a few other familiar faces who pop up too including Kal Penn ('House', ' Designated Survivor'), Aisha Tyler (' Whose Line Is It Anyway?', 'Archer'), Kevin Daniels ('Why Women Kill', 'Council of Dads'), Lesly Kahn ('Quantum Leap'), and Sohm Kapila ('Jane The Virgin').

Written by star Luke Baines & director Nick Simon, the entire movie was shot during the pandemic by the actors in their own homes, with them doing their own lighting, makeup, and stunts! Nick describes it as "Part ghost movie, part self-aware comedy, part deranged Gen-Z satire," which I think sums it up nicely! It's a tremendously fun and entertaining send-up of the genre.
