I’ve got two projects in the running on MAKE MY HORROR MOVIE, a funding initiative between the NZ Film Commission and Darksky Films/MPI Pictures to give away $200,000 to make a low-budget horror film. If you like either of these ideas, I’d love you long time if you were to click over and hit “like” on their respective pages. Here are the links and loglines:
KILL BY MOUTH, a psychotronic hypnotism horror and a rejigged version of my previous Make My Movie finalist:
When a botched suicide attempt cripples him, a miserable stage hypnotist must wage psychic warfare to stop his former assistant from enslaving the world.
INVASIVE CARE, a single-location technological body horror played mostly as a two-hander:
When her partner is diagnosed with terminal cancer, an ambitious medical researcher turns him into a grotesque experiment to save his life.
Again, if you like the sound of either of those movies, click through to their respective links and hit “like”. I’m quite keen for either of these to become my second feature.
I hit Fantastic Fest hard this year, even ending up hitting one of its attendees repeatedly in the process. This year I blogged all my movie viewings and event attendances over at Flicks.co.nz. Read on for unsolicited opinions.
