 Devil's Mile

"Kanako (Amanda Joy Lim) is taken on a road trip to a red place."

Amanda Joy was featured in Fangoria magazine for her work in "Devil's Mile."

Her performance received positive reviews, with one critic noting:

"Lim as Kanako is just plain out and out creepy. She didn’t go out easy and she sure as all hell isn’t going to let anybody off that easy either. Hearing that dark growl come out of such a tiny little lady is enough to send me running the other way!"

"...Amanda Joy Lim came to us through the audition process. Casting Suki & Kanako was the scariest and most challenging part of putting the movie together [...] they're pivotal to the story and have unique, very specific requirements; we looked at a lot of people and couldn't quite nail it down. [Amanda Joy] walked through the door, and it was like the character had come to life in front of me."

-Joseph O'Brien, Interview with  Dreadcentral

" Amanda brought some wonderful layers to Kanako in both her human and ghostly form. [She]  had very detailed ideas of why her character behaved in certain ways in both human and ghostly form, and I think she added a lot of subtlety and nuance to a character who could have, in lesser hands, essentially reduced to “scary ghost girl."

-Joseph O'Brien, Interview with Legless Corpse


In the upcoming film "Disconnection," Amanda Joy stars as Sarah- a young woman who escapes abuse in Korea, only to fall into the clutches of an obsessed cult leader. Amanda Joy co-starred with Jean Yoon, and Simon Sinn.
