There have been numerous films with ‘Deadly’ in the title. In 1957 Nathan Juran brought us a movie called The Deadly Mantis, about a giant praying mantis, who voraciously preys on American military. In 1974 Doris Wishman brought us a movie called Deadly Weapons, about a busty woman who goes after mobsters for killing her boyfriend. In 1984 Charles E. Sellier Jr. brought us a movie called Silent Night, Deadly Night, about boy who goes on a murderous rampage dressed as Santa. In 1986 Wes Craven brought us a movie called Deadly Friend, about a robot named “BB” whose brain gets implanted into a human girl. In 2014 Jared Masters is bringing us a movie called Deadly Punkettes, about a teenage girl band that gets terrorized by a former member’s ghost.

The newest name on the indie lot Danielle Stavin joins them as drummer, Zeb. And Rainy, keyboard, is covered by the captivating Skylar Ripp. Also starring, the former mayor of Sweet City, Lourdes Narro is Edith, the band’s biggest fan.





Debonair and dashing Dave Knapp plays Gil Mopking, the band’s first manager, threatened by big-shot record producer Sicily Mane, portrayed by Jillean Tucker, a young starlet who keeps a pretty good secret of being an enchanted princess.
