A film crew follows the story of a young girl from the Midwest who went to Hollywood with aspirations of becoming a successful actress. When she failed to find work, she arrives in Austin purportedly to star in what she believes is a soft-porn film. However, after discovering the contents of the screenplay, the film crew comes to realize that this is no ordinary film and in fact, it could lead to horrific consequences for this naive young girl.Written by
This film was completely unscripted. Actual quotes are used but are extremely limited because the story was based on actual facts. Many releases and and non-disclosures were required to be signed in order to film this movie which prevented us from showing actual scenes and referring to actual events. Hence the film makers were limited in what they could show and what they couldn't, which made it extremely difficult to retain the continuity normally required in scripted films. See more »
Maya says that Matt is acting as if he were speed dating rather than interviewing porn actresses. Speed dating wasn't around until 1998. The film was set in 1994. See more »
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.
