Katherine McNamara & Luke Baines Reunite For New Quarantine Horror Movie

Katherine McNamara and Luke Baines are co-starring in a new horror movie!

The Shadowhunters co-stars are part of the cast for the new quarantine-filmed The Untitled Horror Movie.

Also in the cast are Claire Holt, Never Have I Ever‘s Darren Barnet, Timothy Granaderos, and Emmy Raver-Lampman.

Luke co-wrote the movie with Nick Simon, and shared that the title is part of the joke, and not just a temporary title.

“Until a distributor buys it and takes it away,” he told Vanity Fair. “That was one of the recurring jokes we had with it. This group of actors couldn’t name their own movie. So it is right now called The Untitled Horror Movie.”

“The horror comedy is about a group of needy and desperate young stars from a once-popular TV series who learn, via video conference, that their show has just been canceled,” Vanity Fair says of the synopsis. “Fearing obscurity, they decide to stay in the spotlight by making a quickie horror film—but while shooting it, they perform a ritual that accidentally invokes an actual demonic spirit. Mayhem follows.”

Each of the actors did everything on their own, including makeup, camera set up, lighting, and more. Everything was filmed and done remotely, and it was all shot in one week!
