SHS grad has featured role in new indie horror flick

Actress Tiffany Browne-Tavarez, a 2000 graduate of Salem High School, has a role in the soon-to-be-released feature film “Messenger of Wrath,” a horror/thriller about a neglected 12-year-old girl, Charlotte, who faces masked invaders breaking into her home late one night. While trying to escape, she learns of a far more dangerous threat lurking outside.

The independent film will be released Friday, Oct. 27, on Amazon Prime. It premiered Sept. 7 at Bow Tie Cinemas in Red Bank, N.J. Browne-Tavarez, 35, plays Det. Kana Miyoshi, a tough, wise, diligent law enforcement agent who has had her share of heartache.

“The character works extremely hard, and perhaps still cares for people more than she would like,” Browne-Tavarez said. “She was fun for me to play because her demeanor is so different from roles I normally play. Normally I’m cast as characters who show more warmth, but Kana is more sarcastic and less animated.”

David Fincher makes Netflix’s serial-killer thriller Mindhunter worth the wait

Cameron Britton (left), Jonathan Groff (Photo: Merrick Morton/Netflix)

Special agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) are two instructors at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia. They’re seated across from one another, in a symmetrically framed, hazily lit cafeteria, discussing Holden’s extracurricular studies in psychology and their applications to his course on hostage negotiation. Ford is young and neatly quaffed, instantly fingered as a G-man by his University Of Virginia classmates and instructors (and shunned for it); Tench has a crew cut left over from J. Edgar Hoover’s tenure at the bureau, but keeps his wide neckties loosened at the knot. Ford’s talk of criminal psychology is rubbing his colleagues the wrong way, and he’s eager for the FBI to move beyond classifying pathological cases as thrill killers and lust murderers. It’s earning him a
