Loyal readers might remember a short film that I raved about last year called Pink Sock (review here). The creative team behind that little depravity is back, and this time they’re delivering feature length madness!
From the Press Release
Josh Schneider of Walking Hate Machine Productions announced pre-production on a new feature film today, with a hopeful release date of fall 2014. Never Been Pinned promises to deliver laughs as well as gratuitous amounts of gore. Shooting will occur throughout Lowell, Ayer, Shirley, Fitchburg, and Worcester, MA.
Schneider has already begun casting the “mockumentary” with newcomers Jay Ford (as lead Darryl ‘Chappy’ Chapman), Brian Rourke (as sex offender Carl “Wolf” Buckley), and Ken Sears (as the documentary’s director).
A film crew follows the plight of perennial loser Darryl Chapman in his quest to enter the Olympics as a Greco-Roman wrestler. Bouts of extreme violence on the mat and his love of big women stand in the way of his dreams.
Schneider plans for a “guerilla style” shoot based on his script, which leaves ample room for improvisation. His previous short film, Pink Sock, a festival favorite, is still a possibility for adaptation into a feature film. “(Producer) John MacDonnell and I have written a truly warped script. We plan on discussing the production further later this summer and possibly putting the script in some festivals,” Schneider wrote. “But right now Chappy: Harder Than Fuck* is my main focus.” (*The film’s original title.)
Those who think WHMP is stepping outside their normal realm with a comedy about mustached weirdos in singlets need not worry. Schneider promises copious amounts of the red stuff. “A majority of the budget is dedicated strictly to FX.” To emphasize this, Schneider has enlisted the help of make-up/FX artist Lindsey Hunneman, whose love of gore is prevalent in her work on Walking Hate Machine Production’s 2008 short Zombie Klaus 2. Stay tuned to Never Been Pinned on Twitter (@NBPMovie) for updates on the film’s progress, cast/crew calls, and pictures/video from set.
Walking Hate Machine Productions started in 2007 before shooting the short film Zombie Klaus, a Christmas meets cannibal comedy. Tromadance 2011 audiences witnessed the New Jersey/New York premiere of the Hennenlotter inspired, original butt-slug film “Pink Sock. The short was produced in association with Razorville Productions.
I’m pretty excited for this one. If you need an indication of what to expect from this wildly enthusiastic and talented group of creative gorehounds, check out their Pink Sock website, which is not safe for work!
Stay tuned, folks, and we’ll bring you more as it rolls in.
