[05/25/19 11:00AM] HWS: Slaughter Creek Trail Loop.
Slaughter Creek was filmed in the Austin area for 1,000,000. Didn't make their budget in theater gross, but I suspect they'll do well in streaming and DVD and whatever is yet to come. Better than Blair Witch which jolted the genera into mainstream consciousness. Head and shoulders above Tiny Furniture (what's the big deal about that anyway. I guess I don't get it.
I was particularly impressed with SC's visual effects and cinematography; although I could have done without some of those gratuitous bouncing images and other goofy "low-tech" shots (I presume most of them were gratuitous. That last lingering "picture" in the police interview surely said half again more than a thousand words. Goldfish (previous review) missed the boat not seeing the ending. It's worth sitting through the whole discombobulating thing to see that one shot.
I'm gonna take another look at Slaughter Creek knowing now that it was unscripted! The actors were apparently told what a scene was supposed to do and what they could and could not say (for legal reasons. then they just winged it. Surely as good as Boys Life 6, which got the director the job doing The Ruins(way to go!
This director knows how to make a movie (he's experienced. This casting director knows how to cast, etc. etc. I figure we'll see these actors. and probably anybody who had anything to do with this production again.
Well worth a peek.
