Also, Stars in Festival Bound Horror Film “EXPRESSWAY TO YOUR SKULL”
LOS ANGELES (March 6, 2015) – Actor PAUL S. TRACEY brings cannibalism to the big screen starring in Czech filmmaker Petr Jákl’s new horror-thriller, GHOUL. The film recently made its world premiere in Prague setting box office records as the highest opening weekend in history for a horror film in the Czech Republic. GHOUL opens in select theaters in the U.S. on March 20th.
In GHOUL, Tracey portrays Ryan, one of three American documentary filmmakers who travel to Ukraine to investigate and shoot a television pilot about the local history of cannibalism. Seeking an interview with a suspected murderer and cannibal, the group comes face to face with the evil spirit of Andrei Chikatilo, the most violent serial killer and cannibal of all time.
Tracey was anxious to hop on board for the project after reading the script and learning the storyline is based on a real cannibal. Tracey explains, “I’ve been a fan of horror films my whole life so I was eager to work on a project like Ghoul which combined truth and fiction.”
Tracey is also delivering a scare on the festival circuit in the new indie horror film, EXPRESSWAY TO YOUR SKULL. The film follows Ed (Tracey) and Amy, a thrill-seeking couple desperately searching for a way to fix their strapped existence. With a stash of drugs, backpacks and half-cocked enthusiasm, they hit the road for an idyllic 3-day trip in the woods…which turns into a nightmare. The film comes from award-winning independent filmmaker Michael Okum and recently made its world premiere at the 33rd annual New Jersey Film Festival.
Previously, Tracey has appeared in several high-profile television series, including ABC’s fan-favorite drama “Castle” and NBC’s “Trauma.” Tracey is currently finishing up a short film which he wrote and stars in; and has two feature length scripts and a TV series in-development.
Tracey’s creative talents are as diverse as his background. He grew up in the picturesque mountain community surrounding the Lake Tahoe / Reno area. His creativity surfaced at an early age, when his gift for drawing landed him in advanced art classes outside of the standard school curriculum. Consider his mother is French, Italian, and Welsh and his father is Jamaican, Chinese, and British, it’s no wonder that Tracey made the decision to explore the world after high school. He made his way to Spain for 6 months and then spent the next 4 years living in Rome, Italy, where he graduated from John Cabot University with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing. Afterwards, Tracey moved to San Francisco, where he started working in film production before quickly realizing that his real passion was on the other side of the camera and he headed for Hollywood.
