Midlands Movies Mike looks at the latest horror flick from SuperfreakMedia whose influences come from the classic slashers of the 1980s.
Their new film is ‘The Final Girl’ which has sliced onto the internet over Halloween and is filled with nostalgic nods for every horror fan. The short film harks back to the genre gems so often found on VHS from the era which SuperfreakMedia hopes captures the interest of fans of spooky scares.
Starring veteran scream queen Jessica Messenger (as Olivia), ‘The Final Girl’ follows a lone survivor on Halloween night as she tries to overcome her two pursuers - BagHead (Phill Martin) and Babyface (John Miles). And just when it looks like her time is up, some very special friends come along which allow for a shocking and bloody climax.
Director Liam Banks has been blown away with the response to the film to date. “It was incredibly fun to make and to get the response we have had so far – especially the reaction from horror fans which has been incredible”.
“Everyone involved threw themselves into this completely and pulled through an incredible intense shoot”, adds Liam. The film was shot in Nottingham over 2 consecutive nights with almost zero budget and Liam hopes to continue with the film’s life on the festival circuit after a brief stint online for fans to stream.
The film itself is now available to view on SuperfreakMedia’s YouTube channel until November 30th (see below). After this, Liam and his team will be submitting the short to a variety of genre film festivals so be sure to check it out whilst you still can.
