Dasha Nekrasova’s directorial debut The Scary of Sixty-First is now available on digital platforms and in theaters. “While out apartment hunting, college pals Noelle and Addie stumble upon the deal of a lifetime: a posh duplex on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. But soon after moving in, a more sinister picture of the apartment emerges when a mysterious woman arrives and claims the property used to belong to the infamous and recently-deceased Jeffrey Epstein,” says the official synopsis. “With this news, Noelle becomes obsessed with the visitor—to the point of infatuation. As the pair plunge deeper into the conspiracies of the Epstein case, Addie falls into her own bizarre state: a pseudo-possession complete with inexplicable fits of age-regressed sexual mania. As they peel back on these strange occurrences, the truth reveals itself to be more twisted than they could have ever imagined.”
The Scary of Sixty-First, the debut film from Dasha Nekrasova, has a riskiness lacking from most recent American films, starting with its subject manner: It’s an Eyes Wide Shut-style winter nightmare about two young women who move into an apartment that they soon learn was once owned by Jeffrey Epstein.
How Dasha Nekrasova Drew on Her Own PR Crisis For Her Role Advising Kendall Through His in Succession
At a time when a person can be incredibly famous to some and absolutely unknown to others, Dasha Nekrasova is an icon to certain quarters of the internet, an indie film actress and host of the lightning rod podcast “Red Scare” who also went viral in 2018 when she told off an Infowars reporter who accosted her over her leftist beliefs at South by Southwest.

Nekrasova plays Comfry, a thirty-something crisis public relations rep tasked with helping her high-powered boss Berry craft Kendall’s impulsive whistleblower meltdown into a campaign that will win him control of Waystar Royco. “There is a bit of a power struggle,” Nekrasova says, “in that the things that he wants are probably not advisable from a PR standpoint, you know?”
Season 3 of HBO’s hit show Succession is returning to screens and newcomer Dasha Nekrasoba is joining the cast playing the role of Comfry. They’ve been filming since November and called it a wrap the week of July 5th 2021. Succession season 3 will be available on Sky Atlantic with a NOW Entertainment membership from today, October 18th.
Dasha Nekrasova attended the “Succession” premiere at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City yesterday in style. The host of Red Scare podcast wore a floor length semi-sheer black gown while posing. An attached black leotard and sheer black tights kept the look somewhat demure. The actress paired the gown with asymmetrical pointed-toe heels. The faux-suede material added another layer of texture in contrast to the lace along the dress skirt. The same lace design was applied along the bodice and neckline with a rosette on the bust for a romantic aesthetic. The only accessory worn was a small...
When two young women score a suspiciously affordable, gauchely lavish apartment on New York City’s Upper East Side, they can’t believe their luck.

Dasha Nekrasova on Her Directorial Debut The Scary of Sixty-First, Jeffrey Epstein, Psychological Horror, and New Forms
As one half of the incendiary and oddly prescient Red Scare podcast, the Belarusian-born, New York-based actress, writer, and (now) filmmaker Dasha Nekrasova occupies––alongside co-host Anna Kachiyan––a singular place in today’s film discourse. It’s no wonder news of her directorial debut has garnered such intrigue, not least given the audacity of its subject matter.
