Coming soon from writer/director (and most importantly fan of this blog - and by that I mean he says nice things about it, not threatens to stab my family because I criticized Rob Zombie ) Carl Bachmann, a horror/comedy hybrid that from footage shown so far, is actually really funny.
If not a little horrific too.
You should be.
Ladies and gentlemen I give you Party Slashers!
Currently looking for funding thru Kickstarter, Party Slashers tells the (almost) true story of Will, a high school Mr. Popular wannabe who as well as finishing his costume for the big Halloween party, is desperately trying to figure out how to get noticed by his high school crush, Heather, the girl that haunts his every waking moment.
And a few of his sticky sleepy ones too.
Meanwhile, his introverted ex- best bud, the roleplaying game obsessed Russell, is busying himself with a particularly intense game of Dungeons & Dragons, you see like all good games masters he takes his campaigns very seriously.
Seriously enough to spice up the game by chanting a spell from a mysterious necromancer book that he found in the woods.
Unfortunately, as is usually the case when you use bizarre occult books before first checking the index, the spell succeeds in raising the deadly “Revenants”, muderous undead killers from beyond the grave.
Which as we know is a bad place to come from.
|One of these cast members is now on my crush/stalking list...I think I'll leave it as a surprise tho'. Hate her to be out when I turn up on her doorstep.|
Worse than that tho' is that the cops have busted the big party, leaving Will no alternative but to invite everyone to Russell's huge house in the middle of nowhere (his parents are never, ever home either which is a plus) to continue the evenings celebrations and most importantly give himself more time to impress Heather.
The sly fox.
Things never go according to plan tho' and upon Will and co's arrival Russell is understandably furious with his ex pal, until his secret crush, the angsty hipster Angie walks in which quickly changes his mind.
And trust me, I've seen her and she's very, very cute.
|Tunnel or funnel?|
With the party continuing unabated and everyone happy (for once) Russell completely forgets about the occult book and it's spells pertaining to the revernants.
Which is a wee bit unfortunate as they haven't forgotten about him.
Cue ninety minutes of wholesale slaughter and frighteningly funny humour as Will teams up with Russell, Heather and Angie in a fight for survival.
Ill-equipped, unskilled, and anything but team players, this rag-tag group’s true colours soon come to the fore.
But before they can deal with death-dispatching revenants, they’ll first need to deal with each other.
And it'll be anything but pretty.
|Tiffany: I think we're alone now.|
Cutting his (cinematic) teeth directing the award-winning dark comedy/musical, "Miracle on Metal Street", Bachmann promises that Party Slashers will be "a non-stop funny and lethal adventure unlike anything you've seen before."
And from the clips I've seen I believe him.
Party Slashers needs you, so head over to the Kickstarter site and tell them I sent you.
End of plug.
