Two original movies from MarVista Digital Entertainment (MVDE) will debut in January 2015. Just in time for Valentine’s Day is the romantic teen comedy All She Wishes, starring Lexi Giovagnoli (Varsity Blood) and Disney star Calum Worthy (Austin & Ally), and featuring Diedrich Bader and Julia Duffy. The hypnotic thriller Patient Killer, starring Victoria Pratt (Mutant X) and Casper Van Dien (Sleeping Beauty), also debuts with a sophomore directorial debut from Van Dien. Both films will be available on demand and across digital platforms.
In All She Wishes, sardonic high school loner Sophie O’Dea (Lexi Giovagnoli) is given a beautiful but ancient car from her eccentric grandma Grace (Julia Duffy, Newhart) on her birthday. Told that the car has magical powers that will grant her one wish, non-believing Sophie casually makes a wish for a date to an upcoming school Valentine’s Day dance. To her surprise her wish comes true in the form of Drake (Calum Worthy), a cute, comical actor from Los Angeles who magically appears in the trunk of her car.
Sophie and Drake are immediately at odds over every little thing, and Sophie makes numerous efforts to ditch Drake only to find that, no matter what she says or does, he continues to pop out of her car trunk. In a last resort to get rid of annoying Drake, Sophie decides that she must follow through to fulfill her wish of taking him to the “Girls Ask Guys Valentine’s Day” school dance. However, as the big dance rapidly approaches, she starts to feel that Drake might not be so bad after all… and that she in fact might be the one who needs to have a change of heart. Realizing that she must learn to open her heart up to others, she sets out to make things right with Drake before her wish is finally fulfilled and he disappears back to the big city forever.
Based on an original story by Kent Jameson and Jessica L. Anderson, All She Wishes was produced by Elizabeth Snoderly (Bloody Homecoming, Varsity Blood), Jake Helgren (Bloody Homecoming, Varsity Blood), and Charlie Vaughn (Happily Ever Spinster); and directed by Letia Clouston Miller (3 Times a Charm) from a screenplay by Jameson and Clouston Miller.
- All She Wishes will be available on January 20, 2015 on Amazon, AT&T, Charter, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo, VUDU, and Vubiquity.
In the thriller Patient Killer, years after a patient killed himself under her care, a therapist finds herself reliving the case when a new patient with a similar condition asks for her help. But as her life begins spiraling out of control again, she wonders if this is mere coincidence… or if there are more sinister forces at work. In his sophomore directorial run, Casper Van Dien stars alongside Victoria Pratt, Barbie Castro (Conduit), Richard Burgi (Desperate Housewives) and Patrick Muldoon (Days of Our Lives).
- Patient Killer will be available on January 13, 2015 on Amazon, AT&T, Charter, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo, VUDU, and Vubiquity.
