Tori Black Stars in Horror Flick

LOS ANGELES — XBIZ Performer of the Year Tori Black plays the lead role in an upcoming horror film called “Half Moon."

Produced by Sunrayz International Films, “Half Moon” is scheduled for a small theatrical release in early 2011 and then will be distributed on DVD. Adult stars Shawna Lenee and Nicki Hunter also appear in the film in cameo roles.

The movie tells the story of a city gripped with fear because of a man killing prostitutes. Black plays a prostitute named Rose who is down on her luck and goes to a hotel to meet a man who seems like "the perfect guy." But things quickly change as she suspects he could be the killer, or worse — a werewolf.

"Tori was amazing during her audition showing how well she can act," producer Warren Sheppard said. "My producers and I thought about going with the actress that gave the best performance and Tori was amazing. She won the role hands down."

Black appears nude in the movie and also does a simulated sex scene. The Seattle native recently played Catwoman in Vivid's hot-selling "Batman XXX."

Currently "Half Moon" is unrated, but an R-rated version will be available upon its release. This is the first film from SunrayzFilms.
