Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

“American Exorcism” lead actress Kate Tumanova attended ScareLA in support of the DVD and RedBox release of the film.

Tumanova is a fresh face to the horror genre, but fans came out in support of the talented actress and were able to meet and greet as well as get an autograph poster or a #KateTumanova shirt.

“It was a great experience and I am very happy to be related to that community through my horror film ‘American Exorcism,'” Tumanova said.

For two hours Tumanova met with fans and talked to press.

Tumanova is proud of her role as Caroline as a teenager in “American Exorcism.” The teenage Caroline character has gone through some turmoil and through the film has some teenage angst that may be fueled by a possession.

This having been her first year at ScareLA Tumanova said, “I love how people are so passionate about a certain genre and all get together and have so much fun. I would love to be back next year. Everyone was so fun and people were very interested to hear about my film.”

“American Exorcism” is out now on DVD and RedBox.

Tumanova will be coming back to the horror genre once again, landing another lead role in an upcoming horror film which is now in production.

Tumanova said, “I am so excited to shoot another project and, since it perfectly fits the Scare LA set up, I will do everything I can to promote it next year.”
