Are you ready for our first ever Slasher Studios feature film?!? Get ready for DON'T GO TO THE REUNION. DON'T GO TO THE REUNION is an homage to some of our favorite revenge slashers of the 1980′s. Do you love “Slaughter High”, “Terror Train”, “Happy Birthday to Me”, and “Prom Night”? Good, because we do too and we plan to play homage to all of them. Our story centers around a horror movie loving misfit named Scott who is teased by the popular students in school. When the popular kids play a prank on him, he feels as though his life is ruined. Flash forward ten years and the gang is back for the class reunion. Little do they know that someone is waiting for them. Is Scott back for revenge? Will they survive the night to find out? Someone loves their horror movies...to death.
After making three successful short films including TEDDY, POPULARITY KILLER, and BLOOD BROTHERS, Slasher Studios is ready to brand out into their very first slasher feature. This is our cinematic love letter to anything and everything that we love in 80's slashers. Ready for a return to likable characters, practical effects (NO CGI to be found here), and an all around fun attitude? Excellent, because so are we!
We are looking to raise $10,000 to make our 90 page script which will pay for lodging for our actors, location rental, practical effects, equipment rental, and transportation and food. We will start filming late April-early May to have the film released in theaters and on dvd in October 2013. YOU will be the first ones to see our love letter to the horror genre. We can't do this without you and we owe our previous films to YOU. Get ready for some carnage candy.
Still not convinced? Check out the short films TEDDY, POPULARITY KILLER and BLOOD BROTHERS below and let us know what you think! We just want to make slashers fun again and with your help, we think we can do just that!
