Production Wraps on Murder University; New Stills Released


Post Thumb:


Rhode Island-based Scorpio Film Releasing has wrapped production on its 12th feature film, Murder University, and sent over a few new stills from the flick, which is an homage to the slasher films of the 80’s slated to premiere in late July of 2012.

SFR promises that Murder University is the company’s most violent and gory film to date. It stars Jamie Dufault, Michael Thurber, and Samantha Acampora.

Director Richard Griffin says, “Murder University is nothing but pure entertainment. Extreme graphic violence, action, sex, nudity, comedy, a musical number… hell, anything and everything we could throw at the audience, we did! The performances are top-notch, and the movie has a scope that most low budget films could only dream of. It’s a great testament to my amazingly hardworking crew and my tireless producers Ted Marr and Kristin Kayala.

Acclaimed playwright turned screenwriter Lenny Schwartz adds, “It’s been an honor and a privilege to work with this cast, crew, producers, and director on the film. It certainly is the bloodiest thing I have ever written, and it is filled with things I have never done in the theater: blood, sex, extreme violence, and nudity. And that positively fills me with glee.

Actor Jamie Dufault says, “I’ve spent nearly every weekend for the past two and a half months engaging in general debauchery with this wonderful cast and crew, and I’ve loved every second of it. It’s an experience I won’t soon forget.

Actress Samantha Acampora explains, “Murder University was an amazing experience for me. We started filming soon after I returned from a year living in LA, and it was great having this to come home to. I love Lenny’s writing, and the crew was so professional and fun to work with. I was really sad to wrap… Richard is a wonderful director, and I got to work with such talented actors like Jamie Dufault and Michael Thurber. I can’t wait to see how the whole thing turns out!

Murder University also stars Sean Sullivan, Rich Tretheway, Nat Sylva, Lee Rush, Nick Apostolides, Christopher Ferreira, Kevin Killavey, and Daniel Lee White.

A series of brutal, cult-like murders are taking place at a New England college. Josh Greene, a shy freshman, is the lone survivor of the murders, which are reminiscent of a similar string of killings some twenty years prior. As he seeks to uncover the secret behind the attacks, he is joined by Detective Forrester, who was instrumental in halting the bloodshed before, and his daughter, Meg, who had barely escaped being a victim previously.
