Reality skein spawns DVD pic ‘Scorned’

TV-friendly version bows Oct. 31

“The Scorned,” the feature that resulted from the E! summer reality series “Kill Reality,” has been completed and an unrated edition will be released Nov. 1 on DVD.

A TV-friendly version bows E! at 9 p.m. Oct. 31.

The E! broadcast will be preceded by a replay of the final hour of the eight-episode series, which tracked the production of Fishbowl Films’ erotic supernatural thriller.

Pic features reality TV contestants including Jenna Lewis and Jon Dalton (“Survivor”), Steven Hill and Trishelle Cannatella (“The Real World”), Trish Schneider and Bob Guiney (“The Bachelor”) and Reichen Lehmkuhl (“The Amazing Race”).

In addition to several minutes of extra nudity, sex, language and horror, the DVD version of the movie — being distributed online at and prior to a planned retail release in January — will include a second disc loaded with bonus features such as filmmaker commentary, unrated outtakes, bloopers, audition footage and making-of featurettes.

Executive producer and co-writer Scott Zakarin said the DVD will offer access to an online area where cast members will participate in ongoing, exclusive interactive bonus features.

In the film, a woman is killed when she catches her boyfriend having an affair. She returns months later to haunt a Malibu beach house filled with a group of sexually disloyal young adults.

Pic will be shopped at AFM next month.
