Welcome to another horror/sci-fi round-up! This time around, we take a look at the new trailer and poster for L.A. Slasher, a long-limbed Freddy Krueger Valentine's Day card, and a recently approved Doctor Who LEGO set.
L.A. Slasher: "LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (February 6, 2015) – The Martin Owen-directed feature film “L.A. Slasher,” produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (“Girls Against Boys”, “The Alphabet Killer”), has been picked up by Archstone Distribution, who will handle domestic distribution as well as international sales. Archstone has set May 1st as the date for a theatrical release.
The film stars Dave Bautista (of the blockbuster hit “Guardians of the Galaxy”), Danny Trejo (“Machete”), Mischa Barton (“The O.C.”), Eric Roberts (“The Dark Knight), Drake Bell (“Drake & Josh”), Brooke Hogan (“Hogan Knows Best”), Tori Black (“Not Another Celebrity Movie”) and Marisa Lauren (“Superhero Movie”), with the of voice of Andy Dick (“News Radio”) as the 'L.A. Slasher'.
A biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous, “L.A. Slasher” explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent - purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the ‘L.A. Slasher’ publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them.
Archstone Distribution, who has picked up “L.A Slasher” for foreign sales, is an established distribution company known for delivering high quality theatrical films to a world-wide audience. Of the film, Archstone President and CEO Brady Bowen says, “We are very excited to be representing L.A. Slasher. It is a highly marketable film with a unique voice that we know audiences are going to love.”
The sale was brokered by sales agents Glen Reynolds and Sebastian Twardosz of Circus Road Films. Twardosz adds of the film, which has been receiving multiple awards on the film festival circuit, "We’re very happy to help bring L.A. Slasher to audiences. It’s a clever and appealing concept. Our hope is that it becomes iconic."
