The 30-year-old Dasha Nekrasova experiences with The Scare of Sixty-First her debut as a director. On The Hollywood Reporter Nekrasova says that as a New York resident, she was “fascinated and shocked” by the Epstein story. She lived near the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York, where the abusive billionaire stayed after his arrest. “When he died, it really felt like the CIA was punching me in the face,” said Nekrasova. She therefore has her doubts about the official statement that Epstein committed suicide in his cell. Realizing that it was pointless to find out the ‘truth’ for herself, she decided to set her sights on writing the script for her new film.
The low-budget thriller follows two young women who score an affordable Manhattan apartment, only to discover it was once owned by Jeffrey Epstein. The house carries all kinds of dark secrets. The ghosts of Epstein’s young victims even manage to take over the body of one of the new residents.
