5 years and some change ago I embarked on a very special endeavor, I wrote, produced, and directed a film called Babysitter Massacre. It was early in what would become my film career and myself and the talent behind it had no idea how much the film would stick. It ended up becoming the last independent film on the shelves of Blockbuster as well as streaming on Amazon Prime Video very early in that platform. This led to it finding a really strong audience, and establishing myself and many of the performers in film. 

Filming the original Babysitter Massacre
Filming the original Babysitter Massacre

When I made the film I was fulfilling a fandom of 80s horror films creating my own slasher movie, I tried to homage to my favorites. Not just Halloween and Friday the 13th, but Sorority House Massacre, Sleepaway Camp, and Slumber Party Massacre. After several successful Kickstarters for comedies and dramas I've decided to come back looking to fulfill one last fandom for Babysitter Massacre... The FRANCHISE.

So today my friend, I am asking you to help me make not one, but TWO films. Two horror films to bring the Babysitter Massacre name into a new echelon. Take a look at these throwback posters.

Babysitter Massacre II: Slay Bells will follow the storyline of the first film 2 months after the original events  at Christmas time, continuing and bringing that story to it's conclusion. As Christmas break hits Ray Falls, Ohio MORE girls are turning up dead, are they related to the events of Halloween Night? PLEDGE AND FIND OUT ;-). It will feature the return of Joni Durian and Erin R. Ryan. Black Christmas and Silent Night, Deadly Night are on the menu in this holiday carnage.

Babysitter Massacre III: Overnight will be an entirely new story, with a new killer and a new cast. Follow in the tradition of camp slashers like The Burning and Sleepaway Camp.

We have totally boss and fun perks for you to check out, so get involved and help us make a slasher franchise and most importantly... HELP ME KILL PEOPLE (in a movie)

Thank you so much, I can't believe we are here today doing this.

Writer/Director of Babysitter Massacre

Risks and challenges

There are always challenges to making films, but I've directed 16 features and produced 20, so I'm relatively confident we got this.
