“Crush the Skull features a great new talent in Katie Savoy,
who plays the heroine and leader of the thieves
….her screen presence is impossible to ignore.”
Easily the most thrilling thriller in recent memory, “Crush the Skull” seems destined for cult status. Winner of the Nightfall Award for best horror film at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival, it recalls the snappy meta horrors of the mid-1990s
Both Dinh and Savoy turn in strong work in Crush the Skull, providing the story with a lot of heart and they exhibit great chemistry together, making it impossible to not want to root for them during their nightmarish ordeal.
Nguyen’s direction adeptly brings many funny and fear-inducing scenes to life, an effect no doubt bolstered by the excellent performances of a stellar cast that includes Chris Dinh, Tim Chiou, Katie Savoy, Chris Riedell, and Lauren Reeder in a film reminiscent of other comedy-horror hybrids such as Eli Craig’s “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil” or Drew Goddard’s “The Cabin in The Woods.”

Crackle’s latest original series Sequestered has subverted nearly every expectation one might have for an online streaming thriller, and by doing so has established itself as a breezily suspenseful trip through the conspiracy-soaked aftermath of a well-publicized murder. This might be a gamechanger, guys.

One of the oddest films at Sundance, or anywhere in recent memory (which explains the midnight screening slot) is a high octane video game, think Call of Duty, turned tongue in cheek, live action feature, and destined for cultdom.

In Wong Fu’s film, Everything Before Us, Katie Savoy portrays Sandy, the wife of Ben’s know-it-all best friend Henry. Nosy and a bit nit-picky, Sandy doesn’t hide her disapproval of Ben and his dismal relationship track record. Aside from Everything Before Us, Savoy stars as one of the leading ladies in Viet Nguyen’s horror-comedy flick, Crush the Skull.

She’s not only very pretty, but also has a very winning screen presence. Best line, “I’m going to have this creature eating out of the palm of my hand!”
If you don’t know her name, you’ve definitely seen her face. Katie Savoy has been on of the sexiest to have ever guested on How I Met Your Mother and Entourage—and now she’s got the role of a lifetime (along with Conan O’Brien) in SyFy’s latest wacky original, Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda.
Low-key and low-profile, the former theatre major doesn’t stake claim in a Wikipedia page or personal website but Katie’s role in the Verizon commercial, starring as a transformed Adrian Peterson emerging from the pool, was enough to cast her as Sports Illustrated’s “Lovely Lady of the Day”
