Bloody Hammer Films is producing its first feature film, a long-overdue EXPLOITATION film that fights racism - "Honky Holocaust"!
HONKY HOLOCAUST - Bloody Hammer Films
A throwback to the 1970s B-Movie Exploitation Genre of Films from our heroes, like Jack Hill, Roger Corman, Sergio Leone, Ruggero Deodato, Dario Argento, Lloyd Kaufman, and the rest of the kickass gang! Bloody Hammer Films bears it all in Honky Holocaust, all in the name of fighting racism! Fuck yea!
This project is a bold one, taking on two momentous goals at once: 1) making a film that combats bigotry head-on rather than through the over-trodden methods of modern day, methods that have proven to deny and ignore the harsh realities of racial disparity and focus on the pathetic baby-steps society has taken toward a sad excuse for ethnic equality, and 2) completing a feature length film with basically no budget, an explosive script, a controversial topic, and no support from established studios.
The idea for this film was conceived by Nick Norrman and Paul M McAlarney while filming the web-series they both worked on, Super-Townie [www.supertownie.com], and Nick recommended that they write and shoot a feature length film themed similarly to the exploitative 1970s and 1980s B-Movie classics. While discussing potential subject matter, Nick pulled up a highly controversial scene from the film Goodbye Uncle Tom, which exposed the truths of racial disparity and the resulting emotions of being oppressed because of ethnicity in terrifyingly graphic and explicit scenery.
It was then that Paul decided that their feature length film should attack racism head-on, rather than with sentimental dramatic cliches as previous socially aware blockbuster films had done, such as "Crash", "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", and even the more graphic big-budget motion pictures such as "American History X". Tired of the message getting lost in the midst of platitudes and cute ideals, Paul and Nick wanted to make a film that didn't grant the audience the option of ignoring what was really being said and shown on screen. And within a month, the script was written, the producers recruited, Bloody Hammer Films was established, and casting began. The only thing that was still missing was funding.
We all work full-time; some of us own small businesses but most of us work at restaurants or small offices. Unfortunately we're all broke, especially after shaving off bits of our paychecks to buy props and wardrobe. We don't even count filling our cars' gas tanks as an expense because it would make us feel even more broke! And we still need tons of props, wardrobes, building supplies for sets, food and water, paper and ink for scripts, batteries, rental equipment, and incidentals! Needless to say, we have everything we need to make this dream a reality... except funding. So help us out! Be a part of the Bloody Hammer Films family and join us on this fun, incredible journey by donating what you can! You won't regret it, and we will certainly appreciate it!
