New Indie: The Slaughter

Goon

The Slaughter PosterJay Lee's The Slaughter will be making its world premiere at the Yet Another Hole in the Head film festival in San Francisco on Saturday, June 10th at 9:30pm. The Slaughter is being billed as a horror-comedy although from watching the trailer and reading the synopsis I would like to know when the comedy comes in.

Here is the synopsis:

When six college students take a job cleaning up an abandoned house their plans are to work hard by day, and play hard by night. However, their careful planning is disrupted when they discover an ancient Tome and (wouldn't you know it) awake Cthulha, an ancient female demon.

A turn of the century ritual to raise the feminine evil goes horribly awry and leaves a she-demon dormant on the ceremonial grounds waiting for the conclusion of the arcane ceremony. Sixty years later a young couple moves into a house built on the ancient grounds and their young daughter's murder leaves the house abandoned for yet another forty years (and fulfills the next part of the ritual). Now, six college students are hired to clean up the house for a greedy real estate mogul and his hemchwoman who plan to sell it for a huge profit. When they unwittingly complete the century long ritual and fully awake the demon from her ancient slumber, it is literally Hell on Earth - and only the ultimate sacrifice can save the world from a future of unspeakable evil.

From what I have seen this movie looks like it will kick some ass. You can check out the trailer here. If you live in the San Francisco area or you plan on traveling there you can pick up some advance tickets here. You can also check out more information on the film at their official website or in our very own database.
