New Australian Horror Film THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE KILLER Coming Soon
“The Slaughterhouse Killer”, the latest horror film from Australian filmmaker Sam Curtain (Blood Hunt), is set to thrill audiences in what the director describes as a blend of visceral horror and character driven drama.
The film, now completed, tells the story of Box (Craig Ingham) and Nathan (James Mason). A passion for slaughter keeps Box in line at the local abattoir where he can quench his thirst for blood. When Nathan, a young parolee arrives in town, Box is instructed to take him under his wing, and soon the two men bond over a murder.
Unable to resist the bloody temptations, the two form a friendship revolving around their sickness for killing. A friendship which is bad news for everyone in town…
Sam hopes that by taking the time to establish the relationship between his leads early, the film will have a far greater impact when these characters are forced to make choices with deadly results for the ones they love.
“In developing our main characters, and putting them in threatening circumstances together, we can explore the toxic dynamic of their relationship and how the trauma affects them in a really interesting way.”
The film is set to be released sometime next year to what Sam describes as an ever-growing and insatiable Australian genre audience.
