Star Light is a 2019 American horror feature film in which a teen’s life is put in peril when he helps a pop star on the run to escape her violent pursuers.

Directed by Mitchell Altieri (The Night Watchmen; The Thompsons; The Hamiltons) and Lee Cummings from a screenplay co-written by Altieri, Jamal M. Jennings and Adam Weis, the movie stars Scout Taylor-Compton, (Room 9; Feral; Rob Zombie’s Halloween; et al), Rahart Adams (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Cameron Johnson, Liana Ramirez and Garrett Westton.

Plot:

While skateboarding, a kind-hearted teenager, Dylan (Cameron Johnson), crashes into a beautiful young woman who secretly turns out to be the world-famous pop star, Bebe A. Love (Scout Taylor-Compton).

Keeping her identity under wraps, Dylan takes Bebe to his best friend’s house for help. While he and his group of friends try to help this mysterious woman, unexplained events begin to occur within the home. And they only intensify when Bebe’s handler, Anton (Bret Roberts), shows up at their door and demands the teenagers return her immediately.

When Dylan refuses fearing for Bebe’s safety, he unleashes a barrage of dire consequences that turns a fun graduation party into a night of living hell…

Background:

Co-director Lee Cummings told Dread Central: “Cinematically, this film is gorgeous with a simplistic pallet of earth tones along with primary pops to aid the story. I wanted to make a film that moves like a thriller but has moments that leave you feeling unsettled, something I always enjoy bringing to the screen. This was also easier to execute when you have two horror vets on your team like [Texas Chainsaw Massacre producer] Jeff Allard and Mitchell Altieri, one of the Butcher Brothers. This not only gave me great insight into the genre but enabled me to make a film I’m passionate about.”
