Visual Vengeance is bringing a special Blu-ray re-release of “Slaughter Day” from Brent and Blake Cousins on September 13th! The label seems to focus on shot-on-video horror and I had the chance to preview the movie in the hopes of interviewing some of the team behind it. I just couldn’t stop from sharing my thoughts, because, by the time I had wiped the gore from my face and stopped laughing over how many times the director can be heard starting scenes, I had genuinely enjoyed a special experience:
Seriously, I greatly enjoyed this, and wish I’d had the opportunity to share some behind-the-scenes insight on how a few young adults threw themselves into a passion project and didn’t give up until they had something worth remembering. As I say in my video, for every bad wig or surprise braces, there’s a stunt that, for 1991, and even somewhat today, would seem nearly impossible. The best and the worst of independent cinema in under an hour, but all for the better!
