SLASH is an upcoming feature film from White Chapel, LLC- Rycke Foreman and Maria (MOnsteworks 66) Olsen. With pre-production underway, SLASH will begin filming this summer in New Mexico. Names currently attached to the four week shoot are Maria Olsen, Todd Farmer, and Gibby Haynes. Several A-list cameos are also expected.
Hopefully the recent resurgence of slasher films will help this production gain additional funding through their Indie Go-Go campaign. The sub-genre always comes around every 15 years or so and if the popularity of flicks such as THE SLEEPER is any indicator things are looking up. Add to that the fertile ground that is the mystery of Jack the Ripper and the story becomes timeless as well.
SLASH brings the story of the Ripper from the foggy streets of Whitechapel in London to White Chapel, New Mexico. It is also a story about family discord as step-brothers Cade and Trench have to deal with the horrific events as they transpire.
The synopsis reads:
When his fantasy becomes your reality…
As his fellow cast members are butchered around him, a young actor must deal with his violent step brother and his own demons…or die trying…
LET THE GAME BEGIN!
