Several Transgender Horror Films in the Works
More indie horror is on its way with a little something for everyone thanks to Mad Sin Cinema, and we have the skinny for you right here! Dig it!
From the Press Release:
Mad Sin Cinema is in production on several new provocative and experimental films by Shane Ryan (My Name Is ‘A’ by anonymous, the Amateur Porn Star Killer trilogy), featuring 16-year-old gender-fluid actor newcomer Lilith Singson (aka Tobias Bristol) in the lead of several films, including Red Oedipal (a bloody and twisted romance), This Girl, This Boy (a docudrama about a gender-fluid teenager), and Half-Breed (a transgender fantasy/horror tale), with a supporting role in God Got Ill and a major role in Ted Bundy Had a Son.
The two formed a partnership at the beginning of last summer and have been working continuously since. Ryan is usually a minimal to one-man production team, with himself making up the entire crew of This Girl, This Boy and God Got Ill. Red Oedipal, which began shooting last week, featured the help of just one other crew member, while the two hope to raise an actual budget for Half-Breed and hire a professional team. Ted Bundy Had a Son includes more than 125 directors from all around the world (more directors than any single film in history) who came together to make a fictionalized documentary on the serial killer known as Brandon/Reid Ryan Allen (Ryan’s character from the APSK trilogy). Ryan searched worldwide for three years from over 4,000 submissions to find an actress who could play the part of the title character (a relative of the victim in the first film) with no success, until reuniting with Singson (a family friend he hadn’t seen in years).
Singson’s portion for Bundy begins production soon while the rest of the film has begun post. This Girl, This Boy and Red Oedipal are both currently filming, along with God Got Ill (an experimental project/documentary, with a four- to five-year shooting schedule). Half-Breed is in development. Those interested in supporting the films and the LGBTQ and horror film community and/or wishing to receive a special thanks or a co-producing credit in one or more of the films, can donate at gofundme.com/transgenderfilms or through Mad Sin Cinema.
