Selena Gomez Stars in Petra Collins’ Creepy (and Pretty) Horror Film

Selena Gomez just became our new favorite Horror Queen, all thanks to her friend and collaborator Petra Collins’ new short film A Love Story.

The short is set to debut on IGTV, Instagram’s new long-form video platform. The date has yet to be released, but Collins posted images from the film overnight — and they’re delightfully creepy. One clip features Gomez gargling an eyeball and eating icing off her legs with a butcher’s knife. Another image depicts a very scary, Medusa-esque hand mask.

The film was written by Melissa Broder, the person behind @SoSadToday and new book The Pisces. Collins and Gomez worked together on Gomez’s video for “Fetish” last year, and Collins had expressed her interest to Vanity Fair about making a horror film with the actress/singer.

“I love The Exorcist and the things that come from inside you,” Collins told Vanity Fair last May. “The things that are a little more subtle, and things that you deal with from inwards, and I feel like it’s something Selena and I both love talking about…that topic is sort of dear to us.”
