If you’re unfamiliar with Calum Waddell and Naomi Holwill, you need to reacquaint yourself with some of the most outstanding supplemental materials found within UK genre label Arrow Video’s catalogue. Now, under the banner of their own High Rising Productions, the duo is almost ready to unleash what promises to be a killer documentary entitled Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever.
Waddell recently spilled the beans over at Fangoria regarding this brand new love letter to the hack ‘n slash sub-genre, a few juicy tidbits of which include:
“Naomi and I actually began this as a DVD supplement for Arrow—in fact, she’s as enthusiastic toward slasher flicks as I am! We originally hoped to attach it, as a little, lighthearted 25-minute thing, to one of their upcoming slasher-movie releases such as The Funhouse, but it slowly became its own thing, and we decided to stay with it and turn it into a full-length documentary. It was quite an imposing thing to do, because I’m all too aware of the absolutely excellent Going to Pieces documentary which my friend Rachel Belfosky produced five years ago. I adore that! So this is a totally different approach to the subject matter, with interviewees who are a little cultier than usual and generally not as ubiquitous on genre docus.”
Can anything top Going to Pieces? Looks like we’ll soon find out!
