'Last House' star Sara Paxton inks with UTA

Actress also appeared in 'Liar Liar,' 'Sleepover'

Horror has its benefits.

For Sara Paxton, fresh off scratching and crawling her way through Rogue Pictures' horror film "The Last House on the Left," it means being signed by UTA. As the brutalized daughter in the Dennis Iliadis-directed revenge remake, Paxton helped the pic open to $14.1 million at the boxoffice this past weekend.

The Los Angeles native previously appeared mostly in lighter fare, such as "Liar Liar," "Sleepover," "Sydney White," "Superhero Movie" and "Aquamarine." Her TV credits include "Greetings From Tucson," "Summerland" and the title character of the Discovery Kids series "Darcy's Wild Life."

Paxton continues to be repped by Stein Entertainment Group and law firm Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson and Binder
