See Pauly Shore in a role like never before, as a psychotic serial killer in his new short psychological thriller Sin City Psycho which he also wrote, directed, and produced as a proof of concept. Known for his roles in films like Encino Man, Bio-Dome, and Son in Law, Shore stars as an unhinged killer, toying with his next victim played by Sharon Gardner.
I’ve always wanted to play a psychopath, what actor doesn’t? I’ve been known for comedy my entire life, so it was really fun to dig in and do something unexpected. I came up with this premise a while ago; I’ve always loved Dexter, American Psycho, and Silence of the Lambs,” Shore stated.
I thought filming something in Las Vegas regarding an unfaithful spouse made sense because people go to Vegas all the time and always say when they do bad things, ‘whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,’ that’s not the case for my character Donovan, he doesn’t play that shit,” added Shore.
In the film, “driven to madness, Donavan (Shore) preys on Sin City’s unfaithful flock by tangling them into a web of torture where broken vows could mean broken bones. Along with his sister Ione, this deranged vigilante justifies the horrors in his wake with the illusions in his head and shows those willing to cheat on their loving spouses that everything that happens in Vegas, slays in Vegas. However, after he lures Tiffany (Gardner) into his deadly web, Donavan finds the next sin to face judgment may just be his very own.”
This marks the first time that we have seen Shore in a completely dramatic role and he does a fantastic job. But don’t take our word for it, watch it for yourself and let us know what you think.
