Gutterballs Getting Under Way


You may remember awhile back when we first reported on Ryan Nicholson's Gutterballs. Well today he has come forward to Fangoria with some news regarding the film and a new look at the poster artwork. Nicholson's previous film Live Feed was definetly a throw back to some of the older grindhouse films.

Nicholson tells Fango he is pretty much going on the same vibe, "I’m going over the top with the sex and violence, but where LIVE FEED was more cartoony and campy, GUTTERBALLS is completely serious, and only via shooting it as such will any dark comedy come out of it. I have homages to HALLOWEEN, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, MANIAC and a few other groundbreaking horror masterpieces, as well as keeping within the black-gloved/masked-killer whodunit theme of the Italian gialli. The difference is that our villain wears a bowling bag as headgear and uses balls and pins delivered via by a black-bowling-gloved hand in his frenzied attacks."

The film actually follows a group of teenagers who head to there local bowling alley just for some innocent games of bowling. When they get to the lanes however they have much more to worry about. Shooting will begin this July for three weeks in Vancouver, Canada.

You can check out the official Myspace page for the movie now. Be sure to keep it here because we will be keeping a close eye on this one.
