Premiering on VOD and DVD 4/3 from Film Chest, the first-ever “stoner slasher” 4/20 Massacre.
The movie pits today’s hottest young stars against cinema’s next iconic movie monster in a frightening and funny comedy-thriller released just in time for the “The Official Holiday” for weed enthusiasts.
From writer/director Dylan Reynolds comes the story of five women who go camping in the woods to celebrate a friend’s birthday over the 4/20 weekend. But when they cross the turf of an illegal marijuana growing operation they must struggle to survive the living nightmare.
“I knew I wanted to direct a horror film for my third feature and I gravitated towards the slasher sub-genre because some of my fondest “movie watching” memories from childhood came from late night viewings and VHS rentals of Friday the 13th and Elm Street sequels”, explains Reynolds in a recent interview. “But more often than not the slasher sub-genre is treated like the “red headed step child” of horror, even among folks who profess to be horror fans. But when watching some of the earlier slasher films (pre ’84 or “first wave” slashers) I found them to actually be comprised of some interesting storylines and characters.
Jamie Bernadette (I Spit on Your Grave: Déjà Vu, Killing Joan), Vanessa Rose Parker (Samurai Cop 2), Justine Wachsberger (Divergent), Stacey Danger (‘’Jean-Claude Van Johnson’’), Marissa Pistone (Raze), Jim Storm (Dark Shadows), Mark Schroeder (‘’Pretty Little Liars’’) Jim Round, Drew Talbert and James Gregory star.
“Jamie Bernadette is great in a “Linda Hamilton/ Sigourney Weaver”-esque kick ass role and I can see her doing stuff like this for years to come”, explains the director. “I predict the “fan favourite” of the film is going to be Stacey Danger who had a great take on the “stoner character”. Vanessa Reynolds is a fantastic dramatic actor and I think she’ll “turn some heads” in the near future. Justine Wachsberger has immense charm and personality that really works on screen- so I’m sure we will be seeing more of her. The actor who impressed me the most as far as taking what was on the page and elevating the material was Marissa Pistone and I look forward to see how her career develops.”
4/20 Massacre is released on VOD and DVD on the 3rd of April.
