Popularity Killer Proves it Isn’t Always Good to Be the Cool Kid

Ah, the cool kids. They do carry quite a burden. It’s not easy having perfect hair and teeth and keeping that sports car looking shiny when they’re banging cheerleaders on the hood every night. Cool kids have their crosses to bear. Unfortunately, in Popularity Killer things get a little tougher for them when a serial killer comes after their perfect asses.

Written by Kevin Sommerfield and filmed in Wisconsin this past fall by director Steve Goltz, Popularity Killer is the newest release from Slasher Studios, who previously brought us the short film Teddy. Take a look at the info below and the teaser trailer. If you like what you see, Popularity Killer can be ordered right here for a very reasonable price!

From the Press Release
Slasher Studios is proud to bring you their second slasher hit. Popularity Killer is a low-budget dark-comedy horror short from the studio that brought you Teddy: It’s Gonna Be a Bear. Teddy, Slasher Studios’ first short horror film, was an independent 14-page horror short that was shot on Canon 5D with a budget of just $3,000 over three days in a mountain cabin. Popularity Killer was far more ambitious in nature. Seven deaths, a budget of just $5,000, and seven days of filming went into the bloody slasher flick.

With Popularity Killer, Slasher Studios has created a smart and bitterly funny horror film about the clichés of high school. With the dark social satire of the script (kill or be killed elements of high school), they have devised a horror film that pays homage to the slasher films of both the 80′s and 90′s.

Popularity Killer Plot Synopsis:
After a young girl is found murdered, a group of teens at Payton High must band together to piece together the horrifying travesty. The teens soon discover the mysterious killer is killing only the most popular students in school. As their friends die one-by-one in the most shockingly gruesome ways possible, they realize that being “in” may not get them out…alive. Every school has an it list…pray you’re not on this one.”

Popularity Killer stars Courtney Ellen Bay, Matty Dorschner, Mike Goltz, Jennifer Frey, Hannah Herdt, Dana Michele, Jamie Jo Roen, and Kevin Sommerfield. It’s directed by Steve Goltz and written by Kevin Sommerfield.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
