It was a quick shoot for Fetish Factory, writer/director Staci Layne Wilson’s feature debut, which features a post-apocalyptic atmosphere blended with burlesque bawdiness. While the film goes through post, we have several stills to share straight from the set.
“We are wrapped on FETISH FACTORY, my 5-day feature film wonder-shoot for the fab BBP,” said Wilson. “What a way to make a directorial debut: pinup girls, multiple costume changes, burlesque acts, singers, bands, claustrophobic ‘haunted house’ horror with a big cast, zombies, beauty and F/X makeup, bloody death scenes, stunts, and humor — I think my next movie should be about one character in a phone booth or something… WHEW!”
“FETISH FACTORY was more fun than I could have ever imagined,” added co-star/producer Jennifer Blanc-Biehn. “It’s a really exciting film featuring pinup models versus zombies. And I’m so proud of our cast. We pulled together an incredibly talented ensemble of people, and I’m excited to get into the post process and see what Staci can do.”
Along with Blanc-Biehn, Fetish Factory stars Chase Williamson, Carrie Keagan, Diane Ayala Goldner, Tristan Risk, Emma Julia Jacobs, Jesse Merlin, Ruben Pla, Benjamin Easterday, Tom Ayers, Stephen Wastell, and Daniel Quinn. Montreal-based alternative model and fetish superstar The Richard and go-go icon Jenimay Walker round out the cast. Lony Ruhmann is executive producer, cinematography is by Steve Romano, and the original Fetish Factory score is by Mars Homeworld. Photos are courtesy of Mike Skillsky.
It’s “SURVIVAL OF THE FOXIEST!” in Fetish Factory, a thrilling and darkly comic horror suspense film with a heaping helping of vintage burlesque bawdiness.
Imagine a wickedly saucy by invitation-only stage show and posh private peeps in which your every fantasy can come true, fulfilled by the likes of luscious ladies imitating the sex goddesses of yore: Bettie Page, Jayne Mansfield, and Suzie Wong. Along with classic burlesque strip-teases and curio acts – a ventriloquist, a magician, and a whip-dancer – you are in for the night of your life at the Fetish Factory. That is, until your life is at stake when the apocalypse strikes! Once mild-mannered men become bloodthirsty zombies, and it’s up to the girls to defend themselves by any means – even if that means turning their bullet bras, garter belts, and spike-heels into deadly weapons.
