Over the years we’ve learned that having premarital sex, smoking weed and getting drunk are likely to result in an axe-wielding maniac ruining your day. But did you know that ditching school is also at the top of the list of things that make a slasher maniac want to spill your blood?
How come you didn’t tell us this, Bueller?!
A new slasher flick called Ditch Day Massacre is headed our way, and the company in charge of distribution wants you to choose the poster that will be used to promote its festival run. Yes, you.
Check out the three similar looking options below, and read on to learn how you can vote for your favorite!
From the Press Release
Water Tree Media has completed production on the slasher film Ditch Day Massacre. This horrifying film stars Bill Oberst, Jr.; Katy Foley; and Zack Silverman in a ditch party gone violently wrong. Megan Waters is the producer of this exciting feature. Ditch Day Massacre is a throwback to the tense style of filmmaking from the ‘80s; the killer’s motivations are kept in mystery until the bloody end. Now, horror fans can preview this feature and channel its course by picking their favorite poster from the three just released.
The three posters each have their own distinctive styles. The first graphic shows actor Bill Oberst, Jr., as Vick, poised with a nasty looking wood axe. It is simple and scary. The second poster gives us a glimpse of the house where several teens are throwing a high school ditch party. Above the house the maniac looms like a demented reaper. Finally, the third poster features the terrorized teen Jenny, played by Katy Foley. The character Mike (Zack Silverman) can also be seen. Which poster do you like best?
Writer Daniel Coughlin knows the importance of conceptualizing and designing a proper look for a film. Coughlin states of these posters and others: “There are those posters that you never forget… like the original Maniac – the artwork draws you in, grabs you and forces you to watch the movie.” Graphic artist Jake Deardorff designed each poster, and now it is time for fans to pick their favorite.
A contest for picking the best poster is being held at the Ditch Day Massacre Facebook fan page.
The winning graphic will be showcased at several upcoming film festivals. Producer Waters says of the upcoming festival run: “It’s going to be a fun-filled, gory thrill ride from the opening image to the end credits.” The film’s world premiere will be announced shortly.
