'Jersey Shore' Star Jenni 'JWoww' Farley Is Making Another Horror Movie
Many people recognize Jenni “JWoww” Farley as MTV reality royalty. But the Jersey Shore star also has her hand in the movie business. Learn more about the 2014 horror movie “JWoww” executive produced, plus details about her latest horror project.
‘Jersey Shore’ cast member ‘JWoww’ wanted to animate for Disney
Before becoming a reality TV star, Farley wanted to pursue a career in animation. “When I was 17-years-old, [my dad and I] watched Brother Bear being made in one of the studios,” Farley told Showbiz Cheat Sheet over the phone in May 2021. “I was just like, ‘That’s what I want to do. I want to work at Disney.’”
But when Farley was cast on Jersey Shore, she put her dreams of becoming an animator on pause. Still, Farley has been able to express her creativity and work on movies in other ways.
Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley’s new horror movie
Farley’s best friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi hints at Farley’s horror movie project on her podcast, It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey. “Her goal is to be behind the scenes,” Polizzi explains in the episode. “She’s always wanted to produce, especially make like horror film.”
Unfortunately, Farley’s most recenty project began just before the pandemic reached the United States. As such, there have been a lot of obstacles for Farley to overcome.
“She invested in her own movie and it’s a horror movie,” Polizzi adds. “[Farley] got her own crew [and] actors, literally nobody helped her, she did this all on her own.”
Polizzi, who saw the movie a few months ago, said she was “so frickin’ impressed” by Farley’s work. “There [were] two scenes where I was like ‘This could be a little scarier’ and she’s fixing them,” Polizzi admits.
At this time, it’s unclear when Farley’s new movie will be released. But in the meantime, fans can watch another movie Farley had a hand in creating.
Jenni Farley’s horror movie career started in 2014
Two years after Jersey Shore ended, the horror-comedy Jersey Shore Massacre was released. Written and directed by Paul Tarnopol (Girls Gone Dead), the movie stars Sal Governale (The Howard Stern Show), Richard Christy (The Howard Stern Show), Bigfoot (The Howard Stern Show), Ron Jeremy, and pro wrestler Giovanni Roselli.
Farley served as an executive producer on the movie, which follows Jersey girl Teresa (Danielle Dallacco) and her friends as they spend a summer in Seaside Heights, New Jersey for “a weekend of sun and sin.” There, they meet “five fist-pumping delinquents” and end up getting targeted by a psychotic killer.
“From GTL, grenades and the crazy shore life, this insane horror comedy movie will not disappoint!” Farley said at the time (via The Hollywood Reporter). Jersey Shore Massacre hit theaters and on-demand platforms in June 2014.
DJ Pauly D’s horror movie
Farley isn’t the only roommate with experience in the horror movie biz. Pauly DelVecchio starred in Sam & Mattie Make a Zombie Movie, a documentary following Sam Suchmann and Mattie Zufelt on their 10-year quest to storyboard, cast, produce, and star in the 2016 movie Spring Break Zombie.
Suchmann and Zufelt are Rhode Island natives, as is DelVecchio. Suchmann is a huge fan of DelVecchio and was star-struck when he agreed to join the cast. Peter Farrelly, who executive produced the documentary, is also from Rhode Island.
“I am so impressed with Sam and Mattie,” DelVecchio told MTV regarding the documentary, which was released Apr. 6, 2021 on-demand. “I am honored to be a part of such a special project.”
