Its been a while since Elisha Cuthbert has embraced horror, but the House Of Wax star has signed up with Epic Pictures for their upcoming Irish flick THE CELLAR.

Cuthbert who is famous for playing Jack Bauer’s daughter Kim in the TV classic 24 will star alongside Eoin Macken and here is the official synopsis.

THE CELLAR tells the story of Keira Woods (Cuthbert), whose daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new house in the country. Keira soon discovers there is an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face or risk losing her family’s souls forever.

Brendan Muldowney who will write and direct the film was thrilled with the casting.

I’m very excited to be working with such a talented cast and crew to bring the world of THE CELLAR into people’s nightmares!
