Horror Movie Star charged with real-life murder day after filming ends

An indie actress whose character fatally shoots someone in an upcoming horror flick was charged with a mirroring real-life murder only one day after filming ended.

Former 30-year-old reporter Aisling Tucker Moore-Reed acts under the alias Wyn Reed in the main role of Valerie Faust in the new horror film “From the Dark,” as per the Mail Tribune.

The makers of the film were not aware she was facing a manslaughter charge for the 2016 shooting death of her uncle in Jackson County, Oregon, when she was cast. Moore-Reed claims it was in self-defense.

While she was on the project for five months, detectives got their hands on cellphone footage she recorded while shooting her uncle – ending with her charges raised to murder just one day after filming wrapped, according to reports.

Siskiyou Productions say they are currently going through hard times due to concerns about how to handle the release of the film, given the seriousness of the charges facing the star.

“We had absolutely no idea about who she was or her circumstances,” the makers insisted on their IndieGoGo page for the film.

“Please, do forgive us. We are trying our best to make a release of this film happen, but we don’t want to hurt anyone in the process.”

Other people who are involved in the movie also note the strange similarities between the real-life incident and that played by the top-billed actress.

“There’s a key scene where she shoots somebody in a similar fashion,” one source told CBSLA.

“The lead character knows they’re in trouble, and she just nailed the right level of fear,” another source on the film told the station.

More-Reed was charged with murder in January, but her connection to the movie emerged just a week ago.

The video she recorded with he phone while shooting her uncle, Shane Moore, 63, served as key evidence for her charges, Jackson County Circuit Judge Lisa Greif stated during a bail hearing back in January,

“It was almost like she was angry that he wasn’t dead,” Greif told the court of the suspect’s reaction on the footage. “To me, that kind of nailed down the evidence for me.”

At present, Moore-Reed is being held without bail. Her trial is scheduled for December.
