Jessica Cameron is back in the new horror comedy Puppet Killer, which has just debuted a trailer. Directed by Lisa Ovies, Puppet Killer also stars Aleks Paunovic, Richard Harmon, Lee Majdoub, Kyle Cassie, and Gigi Saul Guerrero and is set to hit the festival circuit next year.
From the Press Release:
The much anticipated trailer for Lisa Ovies’ film Puppet Killer comes on the heels of some amazing additions to the team. Joining Lisa are producer Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare), composer Stephen Gallagher (The Lovely Bones, The Hobbit Trilogy), and Darren Leader of Steel Panther.
The film features a powerful ensemble cast including Aleks Paunovic (War for the Planet of The Apes, “iZombie”), Richard Harmon (“The 100,” “Bates Motel”), Lee Majdoub (“Supernatural”), Lisa Durupt (Murder She Baked), Kyle Cassie (Deadpool), and Gigi Saul Guerrero (El Gigante, Barbarous Mexico).
The plot of the film centers around a group of high school students who are stalked by a psychotic killer obsessed with horror movie icons during Christmas vacation.
Daren Leader, known for his work with the hugely popular band Steel Panther, is working on several exclusive songs for the film and said, “I jumped at the chance to work with Lisa. She is incredibly talented, and she just knows how to make a killer movie! Puppet Killer is a great homage to the movies I grew up on, and it is an honor to be a part of it.”
Also joining the post-production team is the award-nominated composer Stephen Gallagher. Stephen Gallagher, most known for his work on The Hobbit franchise, Lovely Bones, and District 9, said, “Lisa and her team have created a fantastically compelling film. I am extremely excited to be collaborating with her in creating the soundtrack to Puppet Killer. It will be great! Well… it better be… Simon threatened to hunt me down if it was not up to his own high standards…”
Director Lisa Ovies is rightfully excited, and here is what she had to say about the film: “I can’t wait to share this film with the world. We were excited about it before as our cast is so amazing and the film was such a passion project, but the calibre of people that have jumped on board to finish it is unbelievable. Working with Stephen on the score and with Darren to write original songs is insane. They are so crazy talented, and having their marks on our film is fucking awesome. And obviously bringing the passion and energy of Jessica has been a true gift. The entire team has worked so hard to get here, and I could not be happier to be working with them all to get this film out to the world.”
Puppet Killer is expected to hit the film festival circuit early 2018.
