Born in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada Jessica Cameron has been in so many horror films since beginning her career with the horror short Solitude of Love in 2008 that she has earned the nickname “The Sultana of Splat”. At the risk of carpal tunnel I will list her feature-length appearances throughout her career.
Making her feature length debut in 2010 with The Dead Matter, she kept busy that year with Mr. Hush and Resurrection (aka American Resurrection). 2011 saw her no less resting with Death of the Dead, Deadly Dares: Truth or Dare Part IV, Hell-O-Ween, the TV movie Camel Spiders, the horror comedy fantasy Potpourri and The Family; not to mention starring in 9 episodes of the TV series The Funny Man.
Where were we? Oh yeah, here comes 2012 and The Sleeper, The Black Dahlia Haunting and Silent Night. 2013 brought Truth or Dare (directed by Jessica), 13/13/13, To Jennifer, the action-adventure-horror hybrid Post Mortem, America 2021 and 1 episode of Barry Morgan, Horror Geek.
It’s 2014 and we have Virginia Obscura, the action-horror-thriller Run Like Hell and the action horror comedy A Grim Becoming. Are we almost done? Okay! Okay! Stop with the whip!! 2015 gave us The Evil Gene, All Through the House, Save Yourself and Mania, of which she directed but did not star
