R.A. Mihailoff is best known for his role as Leatherface in ‘Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III’. While R.A.’s resume list’s numerous mainstream credits in movies, television and commercials; as a life-long ‘fan of fright’, he is most proud of his genre work and was especially gratified that his contributions to the genre were formally recognized when he was made an honorary inductee into the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. Mihailoff’s career in the ‘cinema fantastique’ began with a role in the original PBS made-for-tv movie ‘The Lathe Of Heaven’ and he has portrayed a diverse range of characters, from a villainous T-rex to a futuristic cyborg. His stage work even includes a live version of the ‘Twilight Zone’ episode, ‘A Game Of Pool’. R.A. will next be seen co-starring in the highly anticipated, ‘Hatchet 2′, set for a Labor Day Weekend release, 2010. R.A.

RONI JONAH

Impossible to ignore, “Rock Star” Roni Jonah has journeyed among some of the most outrageous worlds in existence: rock ‘n roll, pro-wrestling, and horror films!

A popular Ohio Valley Wrestling personality, Roni was best known as the manager of Mike Mizanin (WWE’s The Miz). She was also a dynamic competitor, mixing it up with several of the sport’s best female stars, including Victoria, Beth Phoenix, Shelly “Ariel” Martinez, Daffney, and Kelly Kelly. Roni never backed down from men, either, confronting many of wrestling’s top names, including Elijah Burke. She also got a (non-consensual) gigantic wet kiss from WWE legend The Big Show for her trouble!

Before ever stepping into the ring, Roni perfected her “Rock Star” persona as bassist for the underground band Gothic Mayhem. She was actually able to meld this into her wrestling career, often smashing her bass over an opponent’s head.

Not content to own just the stage and the ring, she has recently made the transition to the silver screen. She made her film debut in ZP International’s “Hell-ephone,” alongside genre veterans Ari Lehman (Jason from the original “Friday The 13th”), John Dugan (Grandpa from the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), Jim O’Rear (“The Deepening”), Daniel Emery Taylor (“The Return Of Swamp Thing”), and Alex Del Monacco (former Playboy Playmate). From there, she appeared in independent favorites such as “Little Sex Shop Of Horrors”, “Steam Punk” and “Red River.”

Roni has continued her film career as one of the core members of Feathered Italian Films www.feathereditalianfilms.com, making her directorial debut with the acclaimed short “Trepan.” She also had a big hand in the production of FIF’s premier feature film “The Legacy” and its sequel, “Hell House,” handling co-directing duties, writing, special effects, and acting in both films. Not content to sit on the sidelines, Roni is attacking cinema with the same voracity she used in the wrestling ring directing her next two films “Lesferatu: Lesbian Chain Saw Vampires” and “The Zombie Movie”! Be afraid to go to the theatre!

JASON CROWE

A Kentucky native, Jason started his film career with a bang, landing the lead role in the now cult classic zombie film “Dead Moon Rising”. Jason’s comedic portrayal of Jim, the car rental clerk turned hero, boosted him into the spotlight. After DMR Jason went on to star in ZP International’s “Hell-ephone,” alongside genre veterans Ari Lehman (Jason from the original “Friday The 13th”), John Dugan (Grandpa from the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), Jim O’Rear (“The Deepening”), Daniel Emery Taylor (“The Return Of Swamp Thing”), and Alex Del Monacco (former Playboy Playmate). Not to mention starring in the films “Little Sex Shop of Horrors” and “Red River” as the cannibalistic savage Hamburger Head!

Since breaking into film as an actor Jason most recently found himself behind the scenes making his directorial debut with the 80′s slasher homage “The Legacy”. “The Legacy” also stars Crowe, Roni Jonah (who also co-wrote and co-directed the film), professional wrestling legend Al Snow and indie film veterans Jim O’Rear (“The Deepening”) and Daniel Emery Taylor (“The Return Of Swamp Thing”).

Crowe’s second film as actor/director is the horror “Hell House”. “Hell House” was filmed inside Kentucky and Indiana’s largest and most frightening haunted attractions Industrial Nightmare and the Haunted Hotel. HH stars Crowe, Jonah, Al Snow, Jim O’Rear, Daniel Emery Taylor, model and indie horror star Stacey Dixon, 5 time MMA champion and hall of famer Dale Miller and female wrestling star April Hunter. Hell House is set to premiere October 30th of 2010. Currently Crowe is working on the Christmas horror film “Nightmare on 34th Street” starring TJ Moreschi and the comedy “The Zombie Movie” both set for release in 2010.
