Actor and podcast host Dasha Nekrasova makes her feature directorial debut with The Scary of Sixty-First, the thriller film starring Betsey Brown, Quinn, Nekrasova and Mark Rapaport. Winner of Best First Feature Award at 2021 Berlin International Film Festival, the film follows two women who move into a New York apartment once owned by convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
The Scary of Sixty-First opens December 17 in New York at the Quad Cinema in 35mm.
While out apartment hunting, college pals Noelle and Addie stumble upon the deal of a lifetime: a posh duplex on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. But soon after moving in, a more sinister picture of the apartment emerges when a mysterious woman arrives and claims the property used to belong to the infamous and recently deceased Jeffrey Epstein.
With this news, Noelle becomes obsessed with the visitor — to the point of infatuation. As the pair plunge deeper into the conspiracies of the Epstein case, Addie falls into her own bizarre state: a pseudo-possession complete with inexplicable fits of age-regressed sexual mania. As they peel back on these strange occurrences, the truth reveals itself to be more twisted than they could have ever imagined.
