Sylvia Soska's name recognition - along with that of her twin sister Jen - is definitelyon the upswing.

The "Twisted Twins", as they are affectionately called, are best known for their 2012 horror flick "American Mary" and also directed 2009's "Dead Hooker In A Trunk". Their upcoming films include 'See No Evil 2", a segment of "ABCs of Death 2", "Vendetta"and "XX".

While their star has quickly risen in the horror genre, their upcoming "Painkiller Jane" film - based on the popular comic-book character with remarkable regenerative abilities - is a golden opportunity to bring their twisted taste to a much broader audience.

But that's not what has Sylvia Soska excited.

No, what has Sylvia Soska pumped is that the film she is co-directing features two strong female characters in Jane and her friend Maureen - and that it's portrayed in a fun but realistic way.

"It's definitely a female buddy movie, but in the very crass way best female friends talk to each other", says Sylvia Soska. "The dialogue is hilarious and the different characters in the film are so much fun to see interacting.

"I love Jane and Maureen's relationship with each other, it's complicated and interesting", Sylvia Soska continued. "You don't see enough of that".

"Painkiller Jane" is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.
