The Flytipper

‘The Flytipper’ is a splat-stick horror comedy short film tapping into the cinematic traditions of Braindead and Evil Dead – with a dose of pure Britishness. The film is currently looking for backers on its indiegogo page, having had a great start since it launched last week. Check it out here, as well as seeing a free taster of the prologue which the team shot for free.

Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Marc Coleman, ‘The Flytipper’ is a riotous and gory tale of three men who, after flytipping illegally, encounter a rabid monster made of rubbish which will stop at nothing to hunt them down.

Filming is set to begin at the end of April, with a release at the end of June 2017.

The film is a throwback to a time when practical, physical effects were the norm, incarnated in the star of the movie, the monster itself (check out the concept art below).

Marc Coleman, the Director, is an award-winning filmmaker and actor with over 10 years in the business. His production company, Dogged Films, has garnered over 3 million hits on YouTube. Last year he won the prestigious Empire award for a short film he shot with no money. Marc is an actor, director, producer, prop-maker and editor. www.marcsspace.com

Also on board is Stefan Parker, the producer, who has produced dozens of short films that have been screened at short film festivals worldwide, from the BAFTA accredited film festival Aeshetica to Cannes Short Film Corner. www.stefanparker.co.uk

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
