Montse Hernandez in Student Body
After years of acting in films, television, and voice acting, Montse Hernandez enters a new genre she never did before—horror. The film Student Body takes us back to the pinnacle of slasher films of the 80s and 90s as students are stalked inside their school with a psychopath.
Here is the official synopsis of the Student Body:
High school student Jane Shipley is striving to mend her splintering relationship with her childhood best friend, Merritt, and fit in with Merritt’s rebellious group of friends. When Jane’s math teacher oversteps his bounds after class, an apathetic administration forces Jane and Merritt to take matters into their own hands. Merritt manipulates the situation against Jane’s wishes, driving their relationship into further turmoil. Still seeking her approval, Jane joins Merritt and her clique as they break into the school that Friday night to party and play a prank. The group soon discovers they’re not alone: someone has locked them inside and is hunting them down one by one. To survive the night, Jane must find the strength to escape the locked doors and toxic relationships trapping her within Allendale Preparatory High School.
The film stars Christian Camargo, Montse Hernandez, Cheyenne Haynes, Harley Quinn Smith, Austin Zajur, and Anthony Keyvan. Lee Ann Kurr directed and wrote the screenplay.
LRM Online’s Gig Patta talked with Montse Hernandez on her first horror genre entry and her personal love of these types of films and video games. She told us on how she’s not afraid to get down and dirty and be trapped inside the creepy school complex.
Montse Hernandez burst into the industry by playing teenage Jane in Jane the Virgin television series. Her opportunities expanded with recurring roles in television shows with NBC’s The Night Shift and USA’s Colony. She then starred alongside Eva Longoria and Demian Bichir in the indie Lowriders. On the voice acting side, her extensive resume includes voicing Gwen Tennyson in Ben10; June in Netflix’s The Last Kids on Earth, Cristina in Elena of Avalor, and Moxie in LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars.
