Giving a new twist to horror, the Afterparty Massacre, brings metal, blood and gore back to the screen! Written by Kristoff (Horrormerch.com/Spookygirls.com) and Kyle Severn (Incantation, Acheron, and other various side projects), Afterparty Massacre is one killer party with mind-blowing amounts of blood, metal and (naked) flesh!
Afterparty Massacre centers around live performances by Acheron and Incantation. During the show they encounter a mysterious female fan, that becomes a bloodthirsty killer with a voyeuristic side to her. “She loves watching and waiting for the perfect moment to attack her victims. Her bloodlust can not be contained and in the final scenes she unleashes her wrath on the band as well as the crowd until no one is left standing!”
Kristoff mentions. Plus, the soundtrack itself is a major part of this production including bands such as: 16volt, Asphyx, Cardiac Arrest, Crucifier, Denial Fiend, Divine Eve, Estuary, Fatalist, Funerus, Goreaphobia, Gravehill, Luxury Pushers, Master, Pentacle, Ventana and more! Both Incantation and Acheron are performing new exclusive songs within the movie. While Denial Fiend, Goreaphobia, Ventana and a few other bands will have unreleased exclusive tracks for this feature as well. “The music is just as important to this movie as the blood and gore.” Kyle mentions. “The music itself really makes the scenes, it really completes the soundscape for a total massacre. We plan on releasing a CD of the bands featured in the movie via Ibex Moon around the time of the release of the film as well.”
This film will be full of side stories, drunken crowds and plenty of scantly clad metal chicks with its share of nudity. “We’re going at it from all angles!” Kristoff laughs. “We’re shooting both hardcore and soft-core versions of footage here, just not sure at the immediate on which version it’s all going to end up!”
This brings up the point that there may be two different versions of the film released. “We had the idea of shooting two versions of the film for both audiences… the ones that want a darker story with all the blood and gore but not all the hardcore sex involved, and the ones that want all hardcore sex with a lighter story line and the blood and gore mixed in!” He also notes “We’ll be editing them both a bit differently to cater to both audiences. We’ll be shooting the kill scenes from multiple angles and also doing the same with the hardcore/soft-core scenes so it’s not just the same movie repackaged with ‘bonus footage’ as most movies are released today. Both versions will have different exclusive audio tracks and exclusive kill scenes in each version so it adds in a bit more to the depth of the production making it actually worth checking out both versions.”
Along with the overdose on blood, metal, booze and sex comes the sideshow aspect as well. “We’ve ‘hooked up’ with a suspension crew and we’re bringing in a few friends of ours to do up some fire/piercing/grinding performances as well.” adds Kristoff. “We wanted to bring in these dangerous aspects within this subcultre that don’t always get the most attention. We’ll have guys suspended by hooks flying through the air, girls fire breathing, girls with split tounges, guys with all sorts of different body modifications and performance piercings everywhere! Having this dangerous attraction will be a great addition to this movie for sure!”
“It’s a really fun project that I’m looking forward to be a part of!” mentions Kristoff in talking with him about the film. “Having worked with Rob Rotten on Texas Vibrator Massacre (Metro Video/Punx Productions) I definitely learned a lot from that experience and wanted to give horror movie making a go for myself.” He also adds, “Plus when Kyle approached me about making a movie with all the bands that wanted to be part of such a huge soundtrack, we sat down with a few existing ideas I had and we elaborated on them to create this production.”
The film is to be shot this February, with a tentative May release date in open markets. “With Incantation playing the Maryland Deathfest, we figured this would be the absolute best time for the release. Tons of black/death metal, lots of blood, lots of naked chicks, it’s an ideal release date for this movie!” mentions Kyle in regards to the release of the film.
With the release of the UNRATED version for the Maryland Deathfest, Ibex Moon will be distributing the “cleaner” version of the film. On the other side, Punx Productions is on board to release the XXXTRA FLESH (adult) version as well, “Rob Rotten is great to work with and when I mentioned this idea to him he was hyped to bring this in line of his other horror releases (Texas Vibrator Massacre/Porn of the Dead) and being involved wherever he could.” Kristoff mentions.
Look for both the UNRATED and XXXTRA FLESH versions of the movie plus the CD soundtrack for the Afterparty Massacre due out in late May.
