She also directed a horror/musical/comedy for the stage titled Slashed! The Musical for the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival, which was nominated for Best Musical,  Screamiest Show and won the Encore Award. She also directed the holiday-horror radio play Christmas Eve for Earbud Theater, which was released in December 2017 to rave reviews.  Chelsea’s first feature film, the science fiction thriller All That We Destroy, was part of the Blumhouse Into The Dark series and is currently available on Hulu. Her second feature film, the horror comedy Satanic Panic, written by novelist Grady Hendrix and produced by Fangoria, is currently streaming on Shudder and is also available on blu-ray and VHS.  She is repped by United Talent Agency and Heroes & Villains Entertainment.
