It's CURTAINS for Synapse Films (review)

It's the role of a lifetime, and someone will literally kill to get it in the Canadian sleeper horror film CURTAINS.  Sadistic director Jonathan Stryker invites six actresses to his snowbound country house for a weekend of rigorous auditions that will push them to the limit.  One doesn't even make it here, but that spot is subsequently filled by the famous Samantha Sherwood who went into an asylum to research the role and was left there by the director.  There's also a sickle-wielding killer in a hag mask literally slashing the competition.  Samantha Eggar, John Vernon, Linda Thorson, Lynne Griffin, and Lesleh Donaldson star.
