Imagine if the Iconic Horror Slasher, SCREAM, was produced during a pandemic in one location with a diverse cast. You’re now getting a glimpse of the indie feature film, KILLER, written, directed and produced by African-American creative, A. D. Smith.
In March of 2020, a two-week shutdown is ordered across the country after a virus strikes the nation. Ten college friends decide to quarantine together under the same roof. To pass the time, they play a parlor game that makes one of them a killer and the others, the community. But what happens when the game becomes real? The two couples, Brandon/Cindy and Will/Kelly just want to spend the next two weeks together hanging out in the first mass quarantine of the century. But their friend Sam is all too eager to party and has made other plans, inviting five more of their crew. What they thought would be a two-week vacation turns into a two-month prison term as the quarantine is extended and they are forced to stay in the house after one of them contracts the virus. Friends turn into foes, secrets are revealed, and a mysterious masked slasher turns their pastime into his/her own murderous entertainment. Will anyone survive this game of Killer?
Combining timely and relevant themes with the tried and true slasher sub-genre, KILLER looks to wow fans in the indie horror world as well as mainstream audiences. The killer (appropriately called Facemask) dons a costume that is sure to make its mark in pop culture.
With production now complete, the KILLER team is seeking to raise funds for its Post- Production which includes editing, sound mixing, special effects and color grading. The crowdfunding campaign will be listed at www.Indiegogo.com and will run from October 5th through November 2nd with the trailer dropping on October 5th. But don’t fret. You won’t have to wait long to watch the movie. Although still negotiating with distributors, KILLER is planning for an early-spring 2021 release.
