First clip from Wes Craven-produced The Girl in the Photographs

Wes Craven may have passed on, but at least he left behind some projects that we can still look forward to. His most recent production, the Nick Simon-directed THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, is readying its premiere and we have an exciting first look at a clip and a still from the film.

The clip, which depicts Kal Penn (who according to the synopsis is the least creepy character in the film, which should really tell you something about where the tone is going) looking through photographs of the titular girl (Claudia Lee) is fairly simple but enticingly dark. Check it out below!


Colleen’s life isn’t going anywhere. The small town natural beauty is bored with her dead end job at a grocery store and is ready to distance herself from her abusive boyfriend. In the midst of her turmoil, a pair of deranged serial killers begins leaving her photos of their mutilated victims. Her chance to escape comes in the form of Peter Hemmings (Penn), a hipster celebrity photographer who has traveled back to his hometown of Spearfish, South Dakota with a pack of models, intent on copying the killers’ intense and unapologetic artistry and use it for an important ad campaign.

When he learns Colleen is their muse, Peter resolves to make her his own and use her as the centerpiece of a photo campaign in Los Angeles. But before Colleen can leave her old life behind, she must contend with the desires of her murderous stalkers who have chosen her last night in town to execute their most provocative work to date.

THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, which also stars Katharine Isabelle (Hannibal), Mitch PIleggi (The X-Files), Miranda Rae Mayo (Pretty Little Liars), Christy Carlson Romano (Kim Possible), Toby Hemingway (BLACK SWAN), and Luke Baines (SAVING MR. BANKS), will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 14th.
