'Teachers’ Day' wrapped on Teachers’ Day

by David Harkness,

In 1980 you may have been pleasantly mortified by Charles Kaufman’s Mother’s Day. In 1993 people everywhere were mesmerized by a simple weatherman who finds himself living the same day over and over again in Harold RamisGroundhog Day. In 1996, July 4th was given a new name in terror when aliens invaded the U.S. in Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day. In 2010 you may have cuddled up to Garry Marshall’s romantic comedy Valentine’s Day, or checked out Chris Lamartina’s President’s Day. In 2013, and for every year after, you will associate the holiday that falls annually on May 7th with the horrors, humor, and startling imagery of a high school educator gone mad in Jared Masters’ Teachers’ Day, a shocking, unexpected to-be hit holiday movie.

It was on May 7th, 2013, on Teachers’ Day, nationwide, that Frolic Pictures announced wrapping principle photography on

'Teachers' Day' continues to grind away

by David Harkness,

Jared Lee Masters, mastermind behind the upcoming horror slasher ‘Teachers’ Day’, continues to grind forward on the film. The film is about 2/3 done and has a planned wrap date of early May.

Take a look at the full details below.

From the Press Release:

Once every six or seven years; a motion picture is made that leaves you tingling from amazement, tickled by humor, tantalized by sensationalism, tormented by horror, and tranquilized by fear. The film that's adding up this time: Teachers' Day. Viewers will be instantly immersed into a world of hot pink, ring-pop terror, a rekindling of the sugarcoated adolescence you never had, because your parents were going through a messy divorce (and you were a nasty little rebel). Teachers' Day is an American made slasher-comedy, conceived in the swamps of predictable director Jared Lee Masters' sordid mind. A crock-pot of comedic characters.
