Jessica Cameron is blowing up the horror film world. What does one do after writing, directing, and starring in their first feature? Go to Oz of course. Jessica Cameron has just joined the cast of an exciting new project that has me a little jealous, and its called Bedlam Stories.
Bedlam Stories seems to be shooting for the ultimate nightmare Oz would truly be as well as some other “Wonderlands” that we love. I’m excited about the possibilities for this one!
From The Press Release:

Pearry Teo’s Twisted New Horror Film Starts Casting Process
Director Pearry Teo’s (Necromentia, The Gene Generation, and the upcoming The Dark Prince)

The story of the film is as follows:
Set in the 1920s, intrepid reporter Nelly Bly fakes insanity to gain admission into the infamous Bedlam Asylum. While researching her expose, Nellie meets a young patient, Dorothy, who has delusions of a fantasy land she calls “Oz.” Digging deeper into the dark history of the asylum, Nellie uncovers evidence of human experimentation on another inmate, a young girl named Alice, who’s “Wonderland” mirrored Dorothy’s imaginary world. Nellie is determined not to let Dorothy share Alice’s fate as a human guinea pig. But the horrific experiments open a portal to these other worlds. When the dark and twisted inhabitants of Oz and Wonderland clash for control, Nellie realizes that they aren’t delusions at all they
are terrifyingly real.

She is going to play the role of “Nurse Tilley.” While information
about the film and it’s characters is limited, we do know that Nurse Tilley is “The last kind face
you will see, but her eyes hint that she knows about the dark secrets and practices within the
walls of Bedlam Asylum.”
Cameron joins the cast with actress Anna Harr who will be playing the titular role of Alice.
Bedlam Stories is being produced under Pearry Teo’s company, Teo/Ward Productions and the
film’s companion novel is to be released on September 15th of this year. You can expect an
excellent art book for Bedlam to hit at some time in November.
