Brea Grant is having a moment. Written by and starring the University of Texas grad, the slasher Lucky debuts March 4 on Shudder after being selected as one of last year’s SXSW Film Festival Midnighters. Directed by Imitation Girl’s Natasha Kermani, Lucky finds Grant’s self-help novelist May stuck in an endless loop of fighting a masked home invader on a nightly basis. Grant also stars in The Stylist, which debuts March 1 on Arrow-Player.com. Based on her 2016 Fantastic Fest short of the same name, director Jill Gevargizian's tale of terror focuses on lonely sociopathic stylist Claire’s (Contracted’s Najarra Townsend) growing obsession with one of her clients, Olivia (Grant). Grant’s latest directorial effort, the 2020 hospital-set black comedy 12 Hour Shift with Angela Bettis, is now available on Blu-Ray/DVD and to stream on Hulu. Grant also will appear in director BenDavid Grabinski, a dark romantic comedy scheduled for a March 19 theatrical/digital/on demand release. And Grant’s 2019 Fantastic Fest creature feature After Midnight debuted in February on Shudder. The Marshall native appeared in several episodes of Friday Night Lights and Dexter and costarred in such genre films as Rob Zombie's Halloween II, Alleluia! The Devil's Carnival, Beyond the Gates, Applecart (aka Dead Night), and the Austin-shot chillers Dead Awake, Sleep No More, and Apartment 413. She also directed 2013 road comedy Best Friends Forever as well as episodes of The CW sci-fi series Pandora.
