An Interview with Elisha Cuthbert
- Flying. That's my most…I think I worry about it so much. I think fear comes from a lack of knowledge as far as…anyway for me, the fact that I don't understand how a 40 ton craft somehow maneuvers itself in the air and I'm 106 and I can't lift off at any means. How am I doing this right now? It just doesn't feel safe. So I think it's the unknown. Yeah, flying is definitely frightening."
- "Do you have rituals or superstitions you go through?
- Oh yeah. I always get on the plane with my right foot first. I pray a lot. I always talk to my mom before I get on a flight. There's all kinds of things, but I try not to be a psycho about it. I realize with my job that I have to fly so I kind do bite my lip and go for it, but there's always that fear in the back of my mind."
- "Are you a big horror film in general?
- I am a big horror fan. I've always gone to see horror films. A lot of horror films scared me as a kid. In particular was Fire in the Sky. Anything that had to do with extra terrestrials scared the crap out of me. Some people, the religion thing freaks them out, or whatever it may be - ghost vampires - but aliens did it for me."

He Was a Quiet Man
Bob Maconel (Christian Slater) is about to have a bad day. Another eight hours of sitting in a dull grey cubicle, ignored by his co-workers, existing in a world where he feels completely out of sync. On this particular bad day Bob crosses the line from potential killer to inadvertent hero and in the process saves Vanessa's (Elisha Cuthbert) life. This invisible nobody saves the object of his desire only to have her ask him to end her life. Also starring Oscar nominee William H. Macy.
Top cover girl and fashion model, Jennifer Tree (Elisha Cuthbert) has it all - beauty, fame, money and power. Her face appears on covers of hundreds of magazines. At the top of her game, Jennifer is America's sweetheart. She is loved and adored and sought after. Everyone wants her. But someone out there has been watching and waiting. Someone wants her in the worst way. Out alone at a charity event in Soho, Jennifer is drugged and taken.
Held captive in a cell, Jennifer is subjected to a series of terrifying, life-threatening tortures that could only be conceived by a twisted, sadistic mind.
Inspired by the fact that over 850,000 people are reported missing every year in the United States, many of whom are never seen again, 'Captivity' follows the story of one woman who is abducted and tortured, held against her will in a place where days turn into weeks. Her will to escape and survive is challenged every moment by a maniac's desire to demoralize innocent victims and play out his sick game that has been played many times before Jennifer was taken.
A combination of 'Saw' and 'Hostel' meets 'Silence of the Lambs,' 'Captivity' is a psychological thriller/horror film that shows us the true terror of the crimes of abduction and confinement that are committed every day by serial killers and psychopaths at large.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Roland Joffe ('The Killing Fields,' 'The Mission'), 'Captivity' delves deeply into the minds of both captor and victim with a fresh and terrifying view of this epidemic horror.
Being released this summer in theatres nation-wide, 'Captivity' has been called one of the most controversial films of the year. It's a disturbing and raw, yet classy and thought provoking film which will leave you terrified, and looking over your shoulder as you leave the theatre wondering if you could be next.
Popular cheerleader Nina Deer's (Elisha Cuthbert) seemingly unblemished suburban world is turned upside down when her parents (Edie Falco and Martin Donovan) adopt their recently orphaned goddaughter Dot (Camilla Belle). Dot's arrival delivers a blow to Nina's idyllic social life and triggers the unraveling of the family's darkest secrets.
Both Nina's family and friends, including the school hunk Connor (Shawn Ashmore, The "X-Men" trilogy), develop an odd fascination with Dot and confide in her their troubling secrets. Dot quietly shoulders the burdens and secrets of those around her, while continuing to hold what is perhaps the biggest secret - her own.
Directed by Jamie Babbit ("But I'm a Cheerleader"), "The Quiet" is about family secrets, friendship, trust and betrayal. Through Nina's eyes, Babbit takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride- through the hilarious and often crude interactions of high schools students and a family where happy faces disguise ugly truths.

They wake up the next morning to find that their car has been deliberately tampered with. At the risk of being stranded, they accept a local’s invitation for a ride into Ambrose, the only town for miles. Once there, they are drawn to Ambrose’s main attraction-Trudy’s House of Wax, which is filled with remarkably life-like wax sculptures. But as they soon discover, there is a shocking reason the exhibits look so real.
As the friends uncover the town’s dark secrets, they are stalked by a demented killer and find themselves in a bloody battle for survival. The group must find a way out of Ambrose-or become permanent additions to the House of Wax.
