First Review is in for “Popularity Killer”!

We just got our first review for “Popularity Killer” and it’s a good one! Max Ingram from Rabid Dog Press said “I’d definitely recommend checking out Popularity Killer. It’s a genuinely fun time, and when I watched it I felt like I was transported back to the movie theatres of 1985 when slasher movies were king. This is good, gore-tastic stuff!” Thanks Max for the review. Click on the link below to read the full review and make sure to order your copy today!

That’s a Wrap on “Popularity Killer”!

Filming has officially wrapped on “Popularity Killer”! What an adventure the last seven days have been! Between generators not working and getting tickets for trespassing while filming (the less said about that the better…), anything that could happen…did. It was a crazy ride. A sliced finger and some bruises are just par of the “corpse”, right? Overall though, filming went incredibly smooth. We were able to film a 25 page dialogue heavy script in just under seven days and that in and of itself is a bit of a miracle. Keep a watch out for some more updates as we head into the editing stage within the next few weeks. For those of you are curious, check out some of the set pictures below. We made sure not to show too much of the deaths, we don’t want to give everything away. “Popularity Killer” will be premiering on February 10, 2012 at the Marcus Theater 16 in Appleton, WI.

“Popularity Killer” Filming Underway!

For those of you who didn’t know we are currently in production on our second slasher film, “Popularity Killer”. We just started filming yesterday and it has been an adventure to say the least. We had problems with the generators not working and we were forced to change our location half way through filming. Fun stuff! But, overall we got the shots that we needed and we start filming our first death scene of the film tonight. Check out the pictures below of the first night’s shoot and we will make sure post updates as soon as they become available.

“Popularity Killer” plot: “After a young girl is found murdered, a group of teens at Payton High must band together to piece together the horrifying travesty. The teens soon discover the mysterious killer is killing only the most popular students in school. As their friends die one-by-one in the most shockingly gruesome ways possible, they realize that being “in” may not get them out…alive. Every school has an it list…pray you’re not on this one.”
