The 80s was the best decade for toys, comics, television, and movies... especially horror movies In my opinion. The heart and charm of films from those 10 years have stuck with me and many people I know. I often hear the line, "They just don't make movies like that anymore." And sadly, that's true. To my delight, over the past several years, the entertainment industry has tapped into 80s nostalgia by producing wonderful and amazing content that hearkens back to the 1980s.

Despite the breathtaking production value of these shows/films, there seems to be something missing. I feel that it's the heart and soul of the 80s-the good feelings, the fun, the excitement, the innocence, and the magic we all experienced watching movies 30 years ago. That's what we're bringing to the table with "The Bloody Man."

I actually wrote the first incarnation of the story in the 80s when I was 9 years old.
I actually wrote the first incarnation of the story in the 80s when I was 9 years old.

The story takes place in the 80s and 9 year old Sam is struggling with family, friends, school, and the most evil being he can imagine...The Bloody Man, who is unknowingly summoned and will stop at nothing to destroy everything Sam holds dear.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we face is completely transforming any space we film in to reflect the heart, soul, and appearance of the 1980s. We absolutely refuse to shortchange our audience in hopes they won't notice that a prop or the scenery doesn't line up with the timeline. As you may have already guessed, this can be costly to pull off. We are determined to do right by our beloved decade, so we're fully up for the challenge! If you're an 80's aficionado, and you're interested in helping us achieve this task, reach out today! Let's all love the 80s together!
