2014 USC film graduates Powell Robinson and Patrick R. Young have completed their first horror production, BASTARD. The pair co-directed a script written by Young.
“BASTARD follows newlywed, hitchiking serial killers, a brother and sister on the run, and a suicidal, drunk cop as they get caught in an increasingly bizarre series of murders commited by a masked killer near a mountain-town bed and breakfast.”
The film, clearly infused with the blood of ’70s slasher films like The Burning and Halloween, includes a startling retro score, all practical effects, and stars genre veterans Rebekah Kennedy (Season of the Witch/House Hunting) and Tonya Kay (Raze/Dark Space). Newcomers Ellis Hooper, Dan Creed, Will Tranfo, and Burt Culver (Starry Eyes) fill out the rest of the chopping order.
The film will enter the sales game under Robinson and Young’s production company name BIG BAD FILM.
