Local Musician Damein Wash Premieres Debut Film Sunday, January 20 at Nutt Auditorium at Ole Miss

Local pianist Damein Wash will debut his new film, The Two Headed Woman, this Sunday, January 20th, at 7 pm, in the Nutt Auditorium at the University of Mississippi.

Wash’s debut film stars local talent Effie Burt, Michelle Jones, Kimberly Dudley, and Jaime Adams.

Wash was inspired to write the screen play based on experiences from his youth. Half-remembered instances, over-heared “grown-up” conversations, and frightening fables adults would tell children to elicit good behavior inspired the screenplay.

The story is one of sisterhood. “Mary Anne”, ever trying to spread the good news of the gospel, invites her pregnant sister “Lisa Mae” and coworker “Chrissy” to a revival at a small rural church. It just so happens this church lies deep in the woods of what local folks call “the Prair’,” a frightening place where where tales of horror abound. 

Although she’s not a local, Chrissy is familiar with the area, having visited a psychic who lives down the road from the church, colloquially called the two-headed woman.

Lisa Mae becomes increasingly curious to go to the two-headed woman to inquire about suspicions of her cheating husband. Against Mary Anne’s wishes, the three women make their way down the road to the house of this mysterious woman. 

After her visit to the two-headed woman, Lisa Mae, complains of dizzy spells, becomes withdrawn, and is terrorized by a dark presence around her house. Concerned for Lisa Mae’s physical and mental health, and the unborn child, Mary Ann attempts to rely on faith to save her sister. 

When prayers go unanswered, Mary Anne reluctantly goes to the two-headed woman. The two-headed woman tells Mary Anne that her sister’s mind is entrapped by a curse. Mary Ann is left with the decision to rely on faith or fight back at the behest of the two-headed woman to save her sister.
