Are you ready for “Skinemax Cinema”? That’s the seriously unoriginal name for the subgenre that Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood hope to create with their new slasher film Splatter Sisters, which was announced earlier at Cannes.
Variety nailed the scoop that the duo (pictured right with Manson looking strangely like Neve Campbell) will be starring in the flick for producer Edward R. Pressman and filmmaker David Gordon Green.
Adam Bhala Lough will be at the director’s helm of this proposed retro slasher film, and according to him “Splatter Sisters could create a subgenre, which he calls “Skinemax Cinema,” based on the direct-to-cable titular fare we all watched on TV in the Nineties with a box full of tissues close by.
“This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level,” says Green.
“Lough’s unique talent and energy will make ‘Splatter Sisters’ a very special and markedly commercial film,” Pressman said. “I’ve always been attracted to smart movies about killers made by directors with a real vision.”
Look for more soon.
