Impalement. Dismemberment. Acid Bath. Director Chris McInroys splattery short Bad Guy #2 gets real gross in its brisk runtime. Now its online for the world to see.
A bevy of SFX, Bad Guy #2 is a silly, comedic gorefest navigating the ranks of cinematic henchmen with chainsaws, cleavers, toxins and peeled skin. The film premiered at last Septembers Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas and has been hitting festivals ever since (including Montreals upcoming Fantasia). McInroy has shared the film in full for a limited time, in support of a crowdfunding campaign for his next splatterfest, Death Metal.
Rapidly approaching its $7,700 goal on Kickstarter, Death Metal aims to be a comedy short film about a young metalhead who gets handed down a guitar by his metalhead dad who got it from his dad and so on and so on. This badass guitar comes with some rules though. And of course our irresponsible metalhead hero doesn’t follow those rules and the carnage begins.
As with Bad Guy #2, McInroy promises practical, with the same SFX team on board, as well as a real battle axe of a guitar.
