From the E! Series That Killed Reality Each Week Comes the Supernatural Thriller Film They've Been Dying for You to See!

'The Scorned' Makes its Film Debut on E! Entertainment Television on Halloween Night, October 31, at 9:00pm ET/PT

'Kill Reality's' Notorious Cast Members Make the Leap from Television Reality Stars to Movie Actors in the Fishbowl Films Production 'The Scorned'

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10 -- Each week "Kill Reality" fans have witnessed all the drama, the back-stage rivalries and destined hook-ups in this television meta-reality series that put these reality personalities in the same house as they auditioned, rehearsed and made a supernatural thriller. Now the film that heralds, "Hell hath no fury like a dead woman scorned," comes to E! Entertainment Television when "The Scorned" makes its debut on the ultimate night for a scare, Halloween, Monday, October 31, from 9:00-11:00PM ET/PT. Leading into the two-hour film, the final one-hour episode from the "Kill Reality" series will air at 8:00PM ET/PT.

With this unique ensemble cast, each actor brings their characters to life and demonstrates they can put their personal reality survival skills to use as they strut their stuff on the big screen in "The Scorned." Never before have viewers seen their favorite reality stars take on such emotionally draining obstacles and twists of morality in this suspenseful supernatural thriller, where not everyone makes it out alive.

Bob Guiney plays Matt, a charismatic ladies' man caught in a dangerous love triangle with fellow "Bachelor" alum Trish Schneider (Raina) and her best gal pal sexy vixen Trishelle Cannatella (Nichola). Steven Hill (Oliver) and Jenna Lewis (Kirsten) play former scorned lovers who still have plenty of chemistry. Jonny Fairplay is prankster DQ, Ethan Zohn is Murray, a deranged stalker with a secret and Toni Ferrari is the wise cracking detective Kozlowski. Reichen Lehmkuhl and Tonya Cooley play Seth and Jennifer, a feisty couple who spend most of their time between the sheets. An A-list set of reality stars round off the cast with an unforgettable string of cameo appearances.

In "The Scorned" a betrayal of fidelity unleashes an avenging angel of death that lies waiting and dormant in an abandoned Malibu beach house. Months later, a diverse group of struggling 20-something friends move into this house and awaken the apparition. They quickly find themselves caught in a ghostly nightmare. One by one as temptation seduces the housemates into betraying their romantic relationships they are punished by this wraith from hell. "The Scorned" takes its viewers on a salacious terror ridden joy ride while paying subtle reality TV homages. It is a perfect blend of thriller, suspense, humor and wit.

"The series 'Kill Reality' caught on because fans enjoyed seeing their favorite reality stars up to their usual antics but were also surprised at the level of commitment they had to their movie roles," said Lisa Berger, Senior Vice President, Programming Development, E! Networks. Adding, "All of the actors did an amazing job transcending their day jobs as rebellious reality personalities to work hard as a group with enthusiasm and dedication. I think their fans (and new ones too) will find 'The Scorned' to be a great horror movie with a mischievous touch of humor."

"I think the reality stars' performances in this genre-breaking film will prove to the skeptics that their first 15-minutes was just the beginning," said executive producer Scott Zakarin, Fishbowl Films.
