Sicklerville, NJ, September 26, 2014 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: On-Ride Entertainment, LLC. announces that actress Catherine Corcoran has been officially attached to the Night of Thrills project. Catherine joins during Pre-Production and will play as leading lady, “Riley,” in On-Ride’s upcoming feature-length horror. Director Brian Targett had his eye on Catherine from the start stating, “Catherine was first on my list for the lead role of Riley early on in the writing process. I was very excited when she signed on with us and I can’t wait to begin working with her! She is extremely talented and is perfect to bring the lead role to life!” Catherine will also aid in On-Ride’s fall funding campaign to raise the final bit of funds for the project.
“I’m so looking forward to playing Riley in Night of Thrills. The screenplay itself is refreshing in it’s emphasis on the characters, and the psychological tests that their circumstances present for each other. You are right there with Riley questioning what her reality actually is and that is incredibly exciting as an actress, but also for any cinephile to experience,” Catherine stated as she was officially attached to the project. On-Ride Entertainment is excited to sign Catherine to the film. Catherine is no stranger to horror flicks having starred in Troma’s “Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1” and “Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 2.”
