James Bickert (Dear God No!, Frankenstein Created Bikers) and Brian K. Williams (Time to Kill, Space Babes from Outer Space) have formed WIP Productions, LLC. and AMAZON HOT BOX is the company's first feature film release. With cast and crew sworn to secrecy, principal photography took place in four cities and three islands over 17 days in 2017.  It's finished. Done. It's awesome.

What is it about?
An American college student named Penny is apprehended during a  round-up of rebels in the banana republic of Rattica. She is incarcerated into the island penal system overseen by Wardress Von Krupp who is constructing the world’s greatest information extractor. Crocodiles, religious zealots, psycho inmates, a female hit squad and voodoo-based experiments block her every escape. Life is cheap and the jungle explodes in Amazon Hot Box. 

AMAZON HOT BOX combines the thrills and chills of drive-in exploitation, Italian horror and the "tough as cobra spit" ladies of 70s action into a jungle roller coaster ride of Women in Prison entertainment. 

Who's in it?

Our favorite genre actors and actresses! 

What about the rewards?

We do not have to wait for a distribution deal, wait for film festivals, or wait on anyone or anything to release this finished film. As long as our minimum goal is met, we will be able to pay for the manufacturing of the merchandise and shipping. When the campaign makes it's goal, we have several stretch goals planned that will put will more goodies in your package at NO extra cost to you!

Filmmaking is exciting as ever but distribution is an ugly business, so we are changing the game with this exciting method of distribution. High quality professionally replicated physical media with the cinema lover in mind. 

Risks and challenges

Every project comes with its own unique risks and challenges, but this film is finished! All we have to do is make the minimum goal, and we will be able to create the rewards and ship it to the backers. Both James and Brian have a track record of running successful campaigns, and delivering on their promises. The risk is LOW, about as low as low can get. Again, the film is finished. We are not waiting around on distribution. We don't have to wait for film festivals. This is direct distribution from the filmmakers to the fans. No middle man. No wait. No worry.
