Excessive Media Consumption Reaches Horrific Proportions in Netflix & Chill
What better way to end the day than with a movie on Netflix? Yup, we all love to “Netflix and chill,” so to speak. And now we’ve even got a short horror comedy based around the subject.
Netflix & Chill comes from director Michael Middelkoop, and you can give it some cash here.
From the Press Release:
Umami Media and Cinecrowd proudly announce NETFLIX & CHILL, a short horror comedy about a date night on a couch that takes a turn for the worse. Officially defined as internet slang for inviting someone over for sexual purposes, the popular internet meme and hashtag “Netflix & Chill” now takes a leap to the big screen.
NETFLIX & CHILL is written by Michael Middelkoop, who will also direct. The film is produced by Umami Media. Production is set for spring 2017. Currently the film is finalizing its production budget through crowdfunding before making rounds in the festival circuit.
Director Middelkoop has clear ambitions: “With Netflix & Chill I hope to deliver an absurd horror comedy that makes a bit of fun of our excessive media consumption. Also, there should be enough gore to make both John Carpenter and Wes Craven proud.”
