Edward R. Pressman and David Gordon Green have joined forces to produce the retro slasher movie Splatter Sisters. Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood (pictured) will start. Adam Bhala Lough (Bomb The System) will write and direct.
Splatter Sisters is the first in a planned horror franchise. The B-movie style film is described as “sexploitation-serial killer-slasher-road movie circa 1989“.
“Dark humor will be doled out in spades,” Lough said. “Indeed our intention is to take the audience on an emotional roller-coaster ride, from laughter to flat-out fear to sexual arousal. The film may one day be described as ‘Skinemax Cinema,’ a new subgenre inspired by the late night direct-to-cable movies of my childhood.”
Producer David Gordon Green said: “Adam has written a script that is terrifying and has a wicked since of humor. It finds inspiration in the horror classics of the ’80s but at the same time feels like it’s raising the bar and bringing an outrageously fresh spin to what’s out there. This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level.”
Pressman added: “I’ve always been attracted to smart movies about killers made by directors with a real vision.Malick’s Badlands and Mary Harron’s American Psycho come to mind. Lough’s unique talent and energy will make Splatter Sisters a very special and markedly commercial film.”
