This short- I watched it a few times- and every time it reminded me of the low budget 80s slasher flicks to which I love ! A wonderful homage so to speak to the genre - like a lot of the films of the day that were just not quite Halloween , Friday the 13th , or Nightmare on Elm Street, more like the sequels of Sleepaway Camp and the like- the kind that flooded the horror slasher market at that time! The hidden fun gems that can be never seen or under appreciated.
This awesome little featurette was shown on big screen at Days of the Dead Indianapolis 2012 - sadly though- I was not able to see it ,bad John- to busy scoring interviews lol .
The killer in this short , has quite the reputation, one of a long history of killing , a resume of victims a mile long, and has terrorized the town , as the Careview Slasher. He has done so much to kill in this town he is almost celebrity anymore- to a point he has a fan!!! This fan will show him whats up, this fan will help him have a possible final kill ???? Hmmmmmm , maybe , maybe not. This is where I leave you- with a taste- and I hope a craving to check this 21 minute short out asap! Have fun with it- take a stroll down memory lane of the 80s , and be mesmerized by the coolness this little film is! Did I mention the awesome folks in it?? Do I need to drop the name KITSIE DUNCAN ??? MICHELLE SHIELDS??? Do I need to say the scenes with the Woman in Red are great (played by the wonderful Katherine Nash)- or that the young man playing the Slasher ( Beau Yotti ) is kinda psycho like in it heheheehe- well after all , he is playing a slasher!!!!
On a technical note- the sound effects , and the cinematography were great- all brought to you by Chris Jay and the rest of the crew- KUDOS to you Chris ,to everyone!!!
Geez- what else can I say- without giving something away- or repeating myself- ??? Hmmm, not much can I say! EXCEPT!!!!! WATCH IT- CHECK IT OUT- TAKE IT AS FUN AND A FLASHBACK TO 80S SLASHERS- AND ENJOY- AND OH YES- I GIVE THIS FILM A ........ DRUM ROLL PLEASE........ A DRUM ROLL PLEASE...........
