Celebrity culture and reality TV obsession come under fire in a new horror film directed by Martin Owen called L.A. Slasher. After a few months of teaser images and posters, a trailer has finally made its online debut. I got to say: It works. I’ll be curious to see what directions it goes in and I hope it doesn’t become too preachy, but I’m game to check this out.
Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger produced the film.
Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them.
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 and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior.
Mischa Barton, Dave Bautista, Danny Trejo, Eric Roberts, Brooke Hogan and Drake Bell all make appearances in the film.
L.A. Slasher is currently looking for distribution. We’ll keep you posted when release news rolls around.
