"Painkiller Jane" Co-Director (with her sister, Sylvia) Jen Soska has already received many accolades in her young career.

She has heard many people praise her work on films like "American Mary".

However, she took special satisfaction when informed that Jimmy Palmiotti, the co-creator of the titular character in "Painkiller Jane", had compared both Jen and her other "Twisted Twin" to two cinematic legends.

After his initial meeting with the Soskas, Palmiotti has said, "I ordered their films and watched them with Amanda (Conner, Palmiotti's wife) and they have true talent. Watching 'American Mary' was like watching the beginning stages of a film director like Hitchcock or Carpenter."

Sylvia Soska is blown away by the comparison.

"Wow, that's one hell of a compliment", she exclaims. "We greatly admire both Hitchcock and Carpenter. Both are true masters of horror. It would really be an honor to one day be remembered as the same. It's something we aspire to."

"Painkiller Jane" is set to hit theaters in late 2015 or early 2016.
