Online Projects
In Satan’s Closet (2010) (Trailer)

Lena Headey as: Holly
Published: September 22, 2010

This is the second online trailer Lena has done, for a movie which never is going to be made by Stacie Ponder. It’s 9 minutes long and it’s about Satan and how bad things can happen to people when you “worship” him Lena plays what we think is a shrink and she does the part it in a very scary way. She also has some scenes where she’s attacked by a spider.

In Satan’s Closet is a trailer which Lena stars in alongside friend Thomas Dekker who has starred in several projects with Lena. Other casted actors are, Shannon Lark, Heidi Martinuzzi, Anthony Fitzgerald and best of all you see Lena’s husband Pete Loughran. We think it’s his acting debut!

This is also a spoof of the horror genre and it was made just for fun! And like Lena describes it herself:

Last year, for a giggle, there’s no malice in it no deep intent. I can never say no to Stacie cause she’s really good fun and there is no limit to the goof level.

 

Deadly Dress 4: Never A Bride (2009) (Trailer)

Lena Headey as: n/a
Published: May 20, 2009

This 9 minutes long trailer presents a (never-to-be made) movie about Bridget MC Manus’ character who’s about to get married but having a a problem with the dress she chose, apparently it’s cursed and starts killing people. Lena plays one of Bridget’s friends and probably ends up being one of the victims of the cursed dress…

Deadly Dress 4 is a fun trailer which Lena took part in alongside friend Bobbi Sue Luther who also guest starred in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008-2009) and had the main part in the film Laid to Rest (2009). The other cast includes, AfterEllen’s “Brunch with Bridget’s” presenter Bridget McManus, Elissa Dowling, Heidi Martinuzzi and a cameo from Karman Kregloe.

It’s a spoof of an horror movie on a very low budget, but quite fun to watch! You can also see one of Lena’s dog in it and unfortunly didn’t the dog make it in the film.
