Last Year’s Presidential Election Serves as the Basis For Upcoming Horror Movie Weird Folk

Published

on

Last year’s Presidential election was the craziest in history, so basing a horror film around the subject seems like a no-brainer. You can contribute to Weird Folk on Kickstarter, and be sure to give the previous film Schlep from director Scott Dunn and producer Gina Gomez a watch below too.

Weird Folk: A Suburban Horror Comedy – Feature Film
The unsettling misadventures of various residents on election night 2016. Where were you on election night?

Weird Folk is told in 4 chapters: A teen makes a terrifying discovery on the dark web, a clown stalks a neighborhood, a chiropractor goes through his worst nightmare, and a couple finds themselves in the crosshairs of a killer.

The story is centered on teen Howie Oden who finds out there’s a hit on his step-dad on the dark web. When Howie scours the neighborhood for him, he encounters scary clowns, bullies, strange visitors, and dead bodies.

Although Weird Folk takes place on election night 2016, it’s not solely about the election and the hysteria associated with it. It’s about the horror that humans can inflict on one another. It is about the ugly monster inside us all. We show all sides of the political spectrum and do not skew in any one direction. More importantly, this story is extremely entertaining and will give you some laughs and some chills. Election 2016 was an anomaly and the events that take place in this movie are as well.

Schlep
Spend the weekend with Scott as he goes to the desert to reclaim his girlfriend from a “misunderstanding.” Along the way, he must duck and dodge her nunchuck-wielding brother, bond with his newly married best friend, and witness a meddling reiki enthusiast attempt to wreck their marriage…again.

Published

on

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!
