Storyline

Pete and Jasper are two horror-crazed special effects artists with big aspirations and a unique philosophy about their beloved genre: Horror needs special effects that are REAL. When they find themselves ostracized by the mainstream industry as a result of their unorthodox techniques, they set out to make their own film, starring themselves. Production is a bloodbath. Battered, bruised and slashed, Pete and Jasper cut together an excellent film and set forth on a quest for distribution. But they remain blacklisted. No one is willing to take a chance. Finally, they find one executive willing to take on their film, under one condition: They must find a climax that KILLS.... Written by Paul Solet
