parry shen in hatchet

This is for all you horror fans out there... my man Parry Shen is in the indie horror movie Hatchet, which opens in select theaters nationwide today. (That's him on the right in the photo above, looking scared.) It's an old school-styled slasher flick, and I've been hearing good things about it for quite a while now. Hell, I'm not even much of a horror fan, and I'm kind of pumped to see it. Sure, Asian horror is cool, but after a while you get tired of the creepy kids with long black hair, and you wanna see the old fashioned American stuff. It's about a group of tourists who go on a haunted swamp tour and find out that one of the horrific local legends happens to be true. Lots of running and killing ensues.

From what I hear Parry plays a really funny stereotype-bending character... though my guess is, being a horror movie, he probably meets a grisly end. He's got a good entry about his role in the movie over at his Xanga. There's some pretty good behind-the-scenes info. And if you're interested in checking out the movie, he's got a big list of all the theaters it's playing at across the country here. This weekend, go see Parry Shen running for his life.
