‘Shattered’ star Lilly Krug talks about dark, challenging role in new psychological thriller




For most people, a bad date is like going to dinner with someone who chews with their mouth open, but in a new thriller, it’s more like falling for someone who beats you up and takes all your money. Although chewing with their mouth open is also a big no-no. Deco’s Alex Miranda, who has done none of the above — at least to our knowledge — has the story.

Not to get even more graphic, but “Shattered,” the title of this movie, might refer to Cameron Monaghan’s legs, because a meet-cute in a grocery store aisle becomes much more than this eligible bachelor bargained for.

You know that song.

Ava Max (singing): “Oh, she’s sweet but a psycho, a little bit psycho.”

Yeah, the new thriller “Shattered” is a lot like that. but let’s rewind.

Lilly Krug (as Sky): “You’re a lifesaver.”

Cameron Monaghan (as Chris): “I’m Chris.”

Lilly Krug (as Sky): “Sky.”

Aww, a meet-cute. Sky, played by Lilly Krug, is so charming, lonely tech millionaire Chris, played by Cameron Monaghan, can’t help but fall for her. And who wouldn’t appreciate a girlfriend who nurses you after you get attacked by a supposedly random criminal on the street?

But then her roommate dies under mysterious circumstances, so are these events totally unlinked? Or are her intentions more sinister?

Here’s a hint.

Cameron Monaghan (as Chris): “Sky, you should probably contact the police.”

Lilly Krug (as Sky): “That would be stupid of me.”

Cameron Monaghan (as Chris): “Why?”

Lilly Krug: “I talked to a lot of psychologists and just really unpacking the psyche of Sky, and just getting to know who she is and where all this hurt and manipulation comes from.”

If you’re thinking back on this iconic character…

Glenn Close (as Alex Forrest): “Ahhh!”

You’re not alone.

Lilly Krug: “I watched ‘Fatal Attraction,’ ‘Misery,’ ‘Basic Instinct,’ ‘Clockwork Orange,’ everything I could find.”

Frank Grillo also stars. along with John Malkovich.

Lilly Krug: “[John] is so intelligent, but he’s so kind.”

As her landlord, Ronald.

John Malkovich (as Ronald): “Walk of shame.”

Which is not a big deal at all.

Lilly Krug: “Something I think spilled on our set one day, and he would just get a mop and put it away, and I was like, ‘This is John Malkovich just mopping the floor on our set.’ It’s insane.”

And even though Lilly is not much like her character…

Alex Miranda: “Is there any bit of Sky that you feel you still have with you?”

Lilly Krug: “I noticed I slowly started dressing like her. and I was like, ‘Why am I wearing white? I normally wear black,’ and I mean, even now, a year after, I’m wearing all white.”

Alex Miranda: “Like, ‘I’m becoming Sky! Oh, no!’”

Although she did come clean about one crazy thing after a recent relationship.

Lilly Krug: “I saw a girl I thought he was dating, so I followed her on Instagram to see what he was doing. and after a week, I was like unfollowing everyone, like, ‘OK, this has to stop! This is not healthy!’”

“Shattered” is playing in select theaters now and is also available On Demand.

Thursday is warming up Orlando, but the heat won’t stay for long




A warming trend is rising in Central Florida, but another cold front is hot on its heels coming into the weekend.

Temperatures are approaching well above the average for January, with the high forecast for 79 degrees Thursday, the temperature low is predicted at 58, said Maureen McCann, Spectrum News 13 meteorologist.

A southwesterly wind is warming things up ahead of an approaching system thought to be bringing rain and cold temperatures to Central Florida, McCann said.

Thursday is not anticipated to have rain, but rain chances emerge Friday at 20% and Saturday at 40%. Following the rain, temperatures should drop, with Saturday’s high forecast for 65 degrees and the low at 48. That cold trend should remain in the five-day forecast through the rest of the weekend and into the start of the next work week.

Driver transported after crashing into fence in Hollywood




HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – A woman has been transported to the hospital after crashing her vehicle into a fence in Hollywood.

7SkyForce hovered over the scene where rescue crews could be seen carrying the woman away from the side of the road on a stretcher.

The crash happened along the eastbound lanes of Pines Boulevard near 68th Avenue, at around 5:45 a.m., Thursday.

The vehicle the woman was driving crashed into a nearby neighbor’s yard. There was apparently another vehicle involved in the crash.

The victim’s condition remains unknown.

7News spoke with the homeowner whose fence was destroyed. He said his son woke him up after hearing a loud crashing sound.

At around 6 a.m., his neighbor then called to see if he knew about the damage to his fence.

He said he was shocked but thankful his house wasn’t hit.

“I think the car that hit my house, she hit that black car then she ran into my fence and my neighbor’s fence and she damaged both of them,” he said. “Luckily nothing [else] happened because the concrete stopped her from going further.”

Missouri highway patrol blasts out ‘Batman’ cell phone alert by mistake




(CNN) — The Joker is not on the rampage in Missouri, but it looks like authorities there are ready for the “Batman” villain.

An emergency alert mistakenly sent to mobile devices Tuesday by the Missouri State Highway Patrol asked residents of Gotham City to be on the lookout for a purple/green 1978 Dodge 3700 GT. The sedan, with license plate “UKIDME,” sounds a lot like the cars used by the Joker’s goons in the 1989 Batman movie.

It turns out there is no Gotham City in Missouri, and the message was sent in error during a test — apparently by someone with an impressive knowledge of the vehicles used in the movie that pits characters played by Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.

“This was meant to be a test message, THERE WAS NO ALERT,” the law enforcement agency soon posted on social media. Similar errors by other public agencies sometimes have sparked real concern — and also gotten corrected quickly.

Missouri State Highway Patrol had been conducting “a routine test of Missouri’s Blue Alert system” when the message was sent to wireless devices around the state, the agency said in a news release.

“The Patrol regularly tests the Blue Alert system to ensure it works properly when needed. During the test, an option was incorrectly selected, allowing the message to be disseminated to the public,” the release said.

The Blue Alert system is designed to quickly spread information about “violent offenders who have killed, seriously injured, or pose an imminent and credible threat to law enforcement,” according to the highway patrol.

Last year, authorities in Chile mistakenly sent a tsunami evacuation warning following an earthquake. And in 2018, residents and tourists in Hawaii were terrified by a text warning of an incoming ballistic missile that turned out to be a false alarm.
