Verdict: Chilling Thriller
Story: Deadly Famous starts as we follow a mysterious stalker following a woman before brutally killing her in L.A. we move to meet Pamela (Moore) a young actress who moves in with seasoned actor Alan Miller (O’Meara) who takes his methods to the next levels. Alan is trying to get his script made while he watches Pamela given a chance of major studio film.
We get to see the dark and murderous side of Alan who does continue to show Pamela the darker side of Hollywood and where it can drive a once famous actor to commit the worst crimes.
Deadly Famous brings us a disturbing thriller which follows just how twisted a falling actor can go. This has moments real shock as we see how the actor goes with a kill of chance to the most twisted ideas to come. I would have liked to follow Pamela a lot more than we did as it could have been used to drive Alan’s motives more. Overall the story is very twisted with most of the horror off camera.
Daniel O’Meara: Alan Miller is an actor who was famous in his younger years but as time has gone by he has faded from the limelight. He spends his days filming each part of his day as he goes on a killing spree while he wants to get his script made. Daniel is very creepy in the leading role.
Jackie Moore: Pamela is fresh to Hollywood; she moves in with Alan as she starts her career while making her roommate jealous of her new success. Jackie is good but I would have liked to see more from the character.
Eric Roberts: Eric Roberts plays a version of himself as he is a friend of Alan, he likes the wild party side of the lifestyle as we see him all coked up and drunk throughout. Eric gets to have fun in this role without being involved too much.
Support Cast: Deadly Famous has a supporting cast which mostly are the victim of Alan’s.
