Janine Sarnowski, a Seville resident, said she portrays a librarian — and more — but didn’t elaborate because she didn’t want to spoil the plot.

Sarnowski said viewers will recognize the historic theater as well as the Seville Police Department in the movie.

The film was shot in various locations in Medina and Seville, as well as surrounding counties.

The film follows a college student who decides to bring back a deadly role-playing game as a Web series.

“It’s a college game that kind of went wrong the first time,” Sarnowkski said. “A young man decided he wants to bring it back around.”

In the film, eight students were found murdered while playing the game in November 1988.

According to a plot summary, “The new players soon discover, for some, this game is still all too real.”

The film was produced by Noelle Bye, Roger Conners and Meredith Holland.
