Scorpio Film Releasing is currently three weeks into production on its newest feature, the Richard Griffin-directed Murder University, which is being shot entirely in Rhode Island, and we have artwork, an image gallery, and some early details to share.
From the Press Release:
An homage to slasher films of the early 1980’s, Murder University is on pace to be SFR’s most violent outing. Griffin’s past films include Nun of That, Atomic Brain Invasion, and The Disco Exorcist, all tone and style-perfect incarnations of the B-movie trends of their respected eras.
Director Richard Griffin says: “Even though we just passed the one-third mark of production, Murder University has turned out to be our most blood-soaked feature to date. It’s wonderful having such talented special effects artists as Eric Rodrigues and Jordan Pacheco to create such gruesome works of art. I know horror fans are pretty much fed up to the eyeballs with CG gore and want a return to the hand-crafted artistry of practical make-up effects, and Murder University delivers bucketfuls of the gruesome groceries!”
Producer Ted Marr adds: “The entire cast is really top-notch with our three leads – Jamie Dufault, Michael Thurber, and Sammi Acampora – giving performances that easily rival anything seen in a multi-million dollar blockbuster. It’s so important in a horror film that you actually care about the characters you put in harm’s way… and our actors really make these people three-dimensional and not just the typical “Dead Meat Characters” you see in most slasher films of this type.”
Griffin continues: “For all those horror fans who are sick to death of found footage films and Paranormal Activity riffs, I promise Murder University will be a gore-filled, gourmet cinematic cheeseburger you can enjoy with a bunch of friends and your best six-pack!”
Murder University is written by acclaimed New England playwright Lenny Schwartz and produced by Ted Marr and Kristen Kayala. For more info visit the Murder University Facebook page.
