A trip to the darkside.

“Days of our Lives” star Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) has managed to clear time in her busy schedule to shoot a new feature film. Evans has one of the leads in the horror movie, “Cora.” The film follows a dysfunctional family as it moves into meltdown. Evans’ character begins having an affair with a much younger lover who, it turns out, is a vampire.

The film co-stars “DOOL” alum Jillian Clare (ex-Abby; “Miss Behave”), David Dastmalchian (“The Dark Knight”) and Vince Grant (“Dreamgirls”). The film began shooting last week.

If you can’t wait to see Mary Beth doing something else, you may be happy to know she is also conducting cooking classes. Beginning on October 28, she and her sister Debbie will be teaching a few lucky students how to make autumn pies and tarts at the Farm School on Los Rios Street. Visit Mary Beth Evans’ official website for more.
