When teen couple, Sam and Jackie, accidentally stumble upon a ghoulish party on Halloween night, they’re challenged by the devilish Johnny to a supernatural drag race. This is the premise behind BONEYARD RACERS, a horror-inspired fantasy short which has won or been nominated for dozens of awards the world over.
Starring Thomas Kassian (Noise, Hot Box) and Ryley Shandro (Rutherford Manor), written by and co-starring Neil Chase (Broken, John 316), directed by and co-starring David Heacock (Ordinary Decent Criminal, Hyde), and produced by and co-starring Lindsay Christopher (Father of Nations, Gone by Dawn 2: Dead by Dusk) and Preston Ewasiuk (Rutherford Manor, Babageddon), the team set out to create a truly unique world in BONEYARD RACERS. And with cinematography by Logan and Philip Wilson (Bagman, Bagman Rising), and the soundtrack provided by none other than Canadian Rockabilly sensation Punch Drunk Cabaret, who also appear in the film, it all combines for one hell of a ride.
From Vegas Movie Awards to Crimson Screen, NOVA Fest, Motor City Nightmares, Hollywood Dreams, Bare Bones and Houston Horror Film Festival, BONEYARD RACERS racked up wins and nominations for everything from Best Cinematography to Best Soundtrack to Best Horror, Best Fantasy, Best Action, and even Acting and Directing honors – capped by a Best Short (Alberta) Award in the film team’s own backyard at the Oscar-qualifying Edmonton International Film Festival!
