CRESTVIEW — Meredith Majors' passion for moviemaking led her to numerous behind-the-scenes roles: from catering, to makeup and working with camera operators and lighting specialists.

The 2000 Baker School alumna also has appeared on camera, namely as Angelina Jolie's stunt double in 2005's "Mr. and Mrs. Smith."

But her biggest endeavor yet may be a horror film for which she is a star, writer and producer. She is working on the final cut with her husband, Chris, the film's director and co-star.

In "Lake Eerie" — which began filming last month in LaSalle, Mich. — Majors plays a young widow who moves into a lakeside house near the titular body of water, and soon discovers she is not alone.

"It's in the horror/ thriller/ science fiction genre," she said.

The film features Lance Henriksen, of "Aliens" and "Terminator," along with notable talents behind the camera, including Director of Photography David M. Brewer, who worked on "Insidious," and special effects makeup by Robert Kurtzman, of "Predator" and "Army of Darkness."
