When Octomom Nadya Suleman of Orange pleaded no contest Monday to welfare fraud, I figured some of the unreported income came from starring in the horror flick Millennium. After all, as I'd reported in November 2011, the director was saying Millennium was coming soon. Turns out we both were wrong.
Millennium never did come out. It's not even Millennium even more. It's been renamed 666: The Devil's Child and, according to that fountain of accurate information director Kevin Finn, Octo's acting debut (not counting the self-love porn, which was real acting) is now scheduled to be released July 25.
Not in theaters, mind you, but via Amazon, iTunes and cable on demand.
"A re-vamp of the final cut and a new title have made this micro-budget film an enticing and thrilling watch," say producers. "The film's directors cast Suleman in part for her name recognition, but were surprised by the level of her acting talent."
That throw up in my own mouth was not from morning sickness.
The plot: The single mother of 14 stars as a woman named Vanessa, who joins a man in visiting a young woman they met on the Internet. Once they arrive at the woman's remote home, unexplainable things begin to happen (which anyone who has seen the disgusting condition of trashed Octo-pads can relate to).
Did I mention Suleman is a virgin? Scratch that: her character is a virgin. Actually, her character is suspect, but in the movie the Virgin of In-Vitro becomes impregnated by a demon.
"Nadya Suleman is the best new scream queen" in the business," says Finn (as the inside of my mouth fills with another load). "It was truly an honor working with her. She has a bright future in the movie business!"
Hell, for the sake of her kids, here's hoping she makes it in some kind of business.
"I feel very fortunate to have been given this opportunity to star in this horror film," Suleman says in the press materials. "There are very similar characteristics between my character, Vanessa, and myself, which has made it easier to prepare for my role."
And the Oscar goes to …
