Swooning over Australian actresses with regularity is a bona fide pleasure and the vivacious charmer CARMEL SAVAGE makes adoring her a breeze. Not only is this cherubic cutie photogenic, she has an encompassing appeal that’s heavenly. She’s one of the leads in “The Killage” which is the opening feature at the Bram Stoker Film Festival on Friday 28th October and the very occasion to catch the up and coming CARMEL. In the film, she’s all opulent conceit as Hannah, the yuppie bitch who is in a party of 11 recruits on a work retreat where a killer lurks within one of them. ‘Why so serious?’, the now iconic phrase uttered by Heath Ledger would be the apt illustration of the direction this Aussie Comedy/Horror takes. We’ve seen a new breed of slashers that have reinvented the wheel recently (Tucker and Dale Vs Evil, Detention come to mind) and “The Killage” capitalizes on its amusing personification of horror stereotypes. CARMEL is delectable in the trailers (above ) and it’s great to see the princesses of indie horror embracing their femininity more than ever, provoking desire and attentive captivation.
Her performance in another horror flick “Still Waters” which was an Official Selection at the recent Cannes should generate even more buzz for this sweetie. Like how Teresa Palmer transplanted herself from Australia to LA to become a sensation, CARMEL is aiming to go from hometown honey in her native Queensland to Hollywood Hottie as she pursues a bright career ahead. By now most have heard how Director Baz Lurhmann tapped a newcomer from Melbourne to star alongside Leonardo Di Caprio in “The Great Gatsby” and that’s why we need to keep our pulses on Miss CARMEL SAVAGE, Aspiring Starlet.
