New Sync Placement: From the moment the film opens it takes you through an MDMA induced nightmare, powered by the pulsating sounds of electronic music; helped by the excellent 1980’s soundtrack featuring two of our tracks, ABC’s “Look of Love”, Go West’s “King of Wishful Thinking”, both from our Legacy Catalogue.
Although this film feels like a huge homage to the 80’s, it sets to spark the interest of today’s youth; from the highly energetic pace to the stunning visuals.
To say this film is a visual juggernaut is an understatement – Colourful pop art meets the gritty stab-n-slab genre in the new tongue-in-cheek indie horror film L.A Slasher, written and directed by Martin Owen, takes aim at the current state of the entertainment industry.
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 to become an influential star based on no merit or talent– purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behaviour. The story follows the titular Slasher character as he systematically abducts these “stars,” much to the joy of the online public who view his exploits via social media, and who subsequently and enthusiastically support his mantra of ‘Death To Reality TV’.
L.A Slasher is at its best, an odyssey through modern Los Angeles with strong echoes of Brett Easton Ellis. It is not about a linear plot, but the experience of living in these times and the morality of the people who populate it. Every action has multiple interpretations and the line between reality and fantasy is blurred as to create a lucid dream like state that is in effect like sleep walking through an acid trip.
This all-star cast includes Mischa Barton, Dave Bautista, Danny Trejo, Drake Bell, Eric Roberts, Brooke Hogan, Tim Burke, Marisa Lauren, Abigail Wright, Elizabeth Morris and Andy Dick (in his comeback vehicle).
We encourage all horror fans to check out L.A Slasher, because not only does it embody the exploitation roots of horror, but also brings extreme relevance in the form of Death To Reality TV. Who hasn’t thought of the demise of today’s vomit inducing reality queens or their douchebag counterparts?
So let this movie be your guide and provide the visuals to meet your sinister, Death To Reality, scenarios.
