Body parts, strange imagery, a haunting tune, and more – Selena Gomez is dishing out major chills in a
new short film!
It’s been a while since we last saw Selena bust out her acting chops. But, it looks like we’re not the only
ones missing her acting. The 25-year-old singer/actress recently went back to her acting roots – teaming
up with her friend, Canadian artist and director Petra Collins, for A Love Story.
Don’t be fooled by the title though. It’s no cheesy rom-com. It’s a creepy short horror film that’s sure to
make the hair on the back of your neck rise.
Petra shared a snippet of the film on her Instagram page – where we see Selena in a bathtub with part
of a face floating in the water. She also shared a few more stills from the film that just might give us

The project is rolling out on Instagram’s new long form video platform, IGTV, and the director teased
there’s more to come.
It’s not the first time these two have worked together. If you’re getting “Fetish” MV vibes off of this film,
it’s because Petra is the one who directed it, along with the MV for “Bad Liar.” Apparently, they’ve been
talking about this project for over a year.
The director talked to Vanity Fair about it last May, saying, “I love The Exorcist and the things that come
from inside you, the things that are a little more subtle, and things that you deal with from inwards, and
I feel like it’s something Selena and I both love talking about … that topic is sort of dear to us.”
Props to Selena – from music to film, and this talented star can definitely bring it!
