Project of the Day — In The Dark, a horror anthology focusing on all the frightful things that go bump in the night
A new Turkey Day tradition.
Christmas has A Christmas Story airing on TNT for 24 hours straight. But what does Thanksgiving offer on the tube? Football, yes. Animated turkeys? Probably. Yet there’s no universally acknowledged Thanksgiving classic. Drumroll…
Thankskilling 3, the sequel to the gently beloved Thankskilling, aims to fill that gap in programming. The new film follows a “fowl-mouthed villain Turkie [who] carves through the likes of a rapping grandma, a mindless puppet, a wig-wearing inventor, a bisexual space worm, and their equally ridiculous friends on his quest to recover the last copy of ThanksKilling 2.”
If the idea of a killer turkey hunting crazy characters while yelling gobble gobble motherf#$%er sounds appealing, you may have found the perfect film to help you digest your Turducken feast.
This “biker/horror/sexploitation mash-up” was shot entirely on Super 16mm with the lowest of lo-fi effects. The mastermind (…?) behind such hits as Troma Entertainment’s Dumpster Baby and whose Kickstarter bio reads, “Raised around Georgia swamp filled drive-ins with his pet mosquito Sweet Pea, Mr. Bickert’s life long ambition has been to inject highfalutin film elements into the genre trash he loves” — Bickert will be on hand for high fives.
The team promises drink specials, trivia, and giveaways. Tix are $5 at the door or free for upper-level KSR backers.
So far, Synthetic Human has raised $8k for A Stray, “a dramatic character study centered on the destabilizing properties of anger and the role that violence plays when self-control disappears. Bordering on the surreal, this story - a blend of horror and drama - compares a rigid, domesticated lifestyle to brutal animalistic behavior…Vicious compulsions consume a domesticated, single father when his home and child fall victim to the aggression of an elusive, wild animal.”
Soo…if you like Daddy Day Care, you’ll love… :)
