Spectrevision and More Team for Slimy Slasher, The Greasy Strangler



Rook Films and SpectreVision (producers Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Elijah Wood), along with Drafthouse Films and Timpson Films are teaming for the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Jim Hosking, who made a big impression with his nightmarish, hilarious segment in The ABCs of Death 2, “G is for Grandad.” 

Deadline reports the four entities, who all seem dedicated to pushing and producing strange, exciting genre (Timpson just released Housebound, while Rook is behind the likes of Kill List, A Field in England and The Duke of Burgundy), will produce the film written by Hosking and Toby Harvard. The Los Angeles-set Greasy Strangler “follows Ronnie, a man who runs a Disco Walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also signals the appearance of an oily, slimy inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent, soon dubbed ‘The Greasy Strangler.’”

SpectreVision co-founder and actor Elijah Woods says, “When Ant Timpson sent us Jim and Toby’s script, we all agreed that it was the most disgusting, vile, and all-around grotesquely hilarious piece of cinema we’d ever read, with imagery we will likely never dislodge from our tender, greasy brains. And that is why it must exist!”
