Rebecca Calienda Discusses Her New Horror Film ‘Playhouse’

GameStop, Inc.

Rebecca Calienda Discusses Her New Supernatural chiller Playhouse out this week in North America.


The film centers around a notorious horror writer, who moves into an ancient castle with his teenage daughter, to work on his next play; only to face terrifying consequences when his daughter falls prey to a Supernatural evil lurking within the castle walls.


Brothers Fionn and Toby Watts produced and directed the supernatural chiller, which premiered at London’s Frightfest in August.


We speak to star Rebecca Calienda about the creepy new film!

Oh yes dead vampire babe number 4, the four is important1..haha. Yes it is very exciting I got to watch the finished film recently its really nice to see everything come together.

Please tell us how it feels to walk past a poster of Playhouse and see your face staring back at you

Who is that creepy chic and what the hell she staring at!

Did you fight hard for the role of Kathryn? Can you give us the lowdown on how it happened?

Oh yes, I GO TO WAR when I audition. Haha.. But on a serious note, yes I self taped for the Watts Brothers after receiving the script from my agent. I had a good idea of the choices I wanted to make with Kathryn and luckily the guys liked my take on the character.

How could you relate to her?

Yes she had a real sense of play and I liked that in her she really pulled out the femme fatale in me.

Did you have a backstory for her, even if it wasn’t on the page?

Yes I did, I do for all my characters.

Was it hard to come down, or relax at the end of the night, after playing some of those seemingly mentally exhausting scenes?

My scenes weren’t too mentally exhausting like some of the other characters so I didn’t have much winding down to do.

Have you always found it easy to disappear into a character?

Yes I do, its a nice place to be quite freeing.

How much time did you get to know your co-stars before filming began? Much rehearsal time?

None really, I came half way through the shoot so I felt like a bit of an intruder which was quite nice as it actually worked for my character, it was pretty much straight into it when I arrived on set, thats filming though unlike theatre where you have weeks of rehearsal, in film you arrive on set ready and prepared to rock and roll.

What do you think gives the film its chills and suspense?

The camera work is really skilful and the location is obviously a huge character itself and adds to the films ambience. Also, I really liked the story the old ghost story within the film really pulls you in.

By the looks of your upcoming slate, it looks looks like you’re sticking with scary films for the foreseeable future – is it a genre you naturally gravitate towards?

Well as much as I’ve loved horror and hopefully will do more in the foreseeable future my next films are different genres entirely I have a SCI -FI film called T H E M directed by Ignacio Masio coming out soon as well as The Lost directed by Peter Stylianou that’s a thriller/ detective story albeit my character Liz is pretty wild and scary in it!

PLAYHOUSE is now on Digital from Devilworks
