First Stone Age Slasher Film B.C. Butcher Coming from Troma

Published

What? You were under the impression that serial killers and mass murderers were just a modern man problem! Seventeen-year-old director Kansas Bowling is out to prove otherwise with her new film B.C. Butcher.

From the Press Release:
The Troma Team is pleased to announce the acquisition of B.C. BUTCHER, the first ever prehistoric slasher flick courtesy of the mind of wunderkind Kansas Bowling. Displaying talent and imagination that far surpasses her seventeen years, the film features amputations, disembowelment, psychedelic dreams, cute cave chicks, buff dudes in loin cloths, and a punk rock band playing guitars made out of watermelons. B.C. BUTCHER truly has something for everyone!

Shot entirely on 16mm film, the movie comes from a script written by Ms. Bowling and her high school friend Kenzie Givens and can be described as a potent mix between Quest for Fire, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Rock ‘n’ Roll High School.

After a group of contemptuous cavewomen torture and kill one of their own over a romantic betrayal, a disfigured loner, known only as The Butcher (Dwayne Johnson (not The Rock)), discovers and falls deeply in love with the mutilated corpse. He proceeds on a bloody path of revenge, picking off the sexy murderers one by one.

The film is narrated by Kadeem Hardison (“A Different World,” Troma’s Def by Tempation) and features Kato Kaelin (BASEketball) alongside a host of up-and-coming actresses including: Leilani Fideler (“Pretty Little Liars”), Parker Love Bowling, Natasha Halevi, Devyn Leah, Molly Elizabeth Ring, and Miranda Robin. The film also boasts cameo appearances by Duck-Duck and Rodney Bingenheimer, California’s KROQ DJ, who lovingly refers to B.C. BUTCHER as the “prehistoric Manson girls.”

Featuring a rock & roll soundtrack from The Ugly Kids, B.C. BUTCHER is no doubt the definitive tongue-in-cheek horror film set in the Paleolithic Era. Troma is excited to share B.C. BUTCHER with the world in early 2016!

Published

on

The Curse of the Cat People will be released on Blu-ray for the first time by Scream Factory on June 26. Originally released in 1944, the film was a sequel to Cat People, which was released two years prior, with Kent Smith returning as Oliver Reed, a father who thinks his daughter may have fallen influence to his deceased first wife (played by Simone Simon, also returning), who was descended from a race of mythical cat people.

The film was co-directed by Gunther von Fritsch and Robert Wise, the latter of whom went on the helm classics including West Side Story, The Haunting, The Sound of Music, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It also starred Jane Randolph, Ann Carter, Sir Lancelot, and Julia Dean.

The Blu-ray will include audio commentaries from historians Steve Haberman and Greg Mank, trailers and stills, and a video essay by filmmaker Constantine Nasr called Lewton’s Muse: The Dark Eyes Of Simone Simon. As this classic film has never before graced the Blu-ray format with its presence, we can’t wait to get our hands (or paws) on it when it releases next month.
