For Immediate Release – magGot Films is violently ill with delight to officially announce our involvement with “Slew Hampshire” – the latest abhorrent creation from the mind of writer/director Flood Reed.Â We’ve been in negotiations for weeks concerning this project, and finally – before the ink even dries on the contracts – this news is seeping from our no-longer tightly-sealed lips.Â We’re here to let the horror underground know – “Slew Hampshire” is a game-changer.Â It will be a serious force in our community, and magGot Films can’t wait to get our grimy paws – and leave our filthy fingerprints – all over it!
The feature film – a longtime-in-the-making collaboration between magGot Films and Reed – is slated for principal photography in May 2010, with a budget in the $150K range.Â Principal roles have been cast, key creative and technical crew members have signed on, and locations are being secured.Â magGot Films has been commissioned to provide consultation services throughout the next 4 months of preproduction, will be working closely with Reed’s production company (Gluefactory Features) in matters pertaining to Makeup/FX, and will be heavily involved in the post-production process.Â And rumor has it, the film may even feature an appearance by mikey magGot, himself . . . be on the lookout . . .
magGot Films has seen the script, and has intimate knowledge of the resources being tapped in order to bring this project together . . . and rest assured, “Slew Hampshire” is going to make eardrum-piercing noise and put a lot of presently unknown talents on the map.Â What “Slew Hampshire” offers the horror market far exceeds expectations for your average blood-and-guts slasher, supernatural thriller, monster movie or campy teen horror flick.Â In fact, “Slew Hampshire” combines the best of these formulas into a genre-blending, mind-bending story that honors the greatest horror traditions, while challenging and shattering some of its most conventional elements.Â Both hardcore and casual horror fans, alike, are going to be very, very impressed (and disturbed) . . . Stay tuned for much, much more to come . . .
