Lanette Ware (nurse in “Family Portrait“) is Detective Bellows in Justin G. Dyck’s horror film ANYTHING FOR JACKSON. Audrey (Sheila McCarthy) and Henry (Julian Richings) are two grieving grandparents who lost their grandson Jackson in an automobile accident. Henry is a doctor, and he kidnaps one of his pregnant patients, intending to perform a reverse exorcism that will put Jackson’s soul inside the unfortunate woman’s unborn child. Soon Audrey and Henry discover that Jackson isn’t the only ghost they have invited into their home. ANYTHING FOR JACKSON completed filming in Barrie, Ontario in March and is expected to premiere on Super Channel Fuse in Canada sometime in the Fall.
Ware is also Betty in GIRL, a film starring Bella Thorne as a woman who intends to kill her abusive father, but after returning home to accomplish this finds that someone else has gotten to him first. Written and directed by Chad Faust, GIRL should be released in the US and Canada later this year.

Brooks and written by Dustin Clendenen, I DO, OR DIE will premiere in the US later this year. A trailer is available on YouTube.
