The L.A. Slasher has been lurking in Hollywood and making an impact. How much so? He has a rep! The slasher who calls for “Death to reality TV” is now being represented by Circus Road Films. This is a film with a very specific message and the L.A. Slasher wants to make sure we get it so I, for one, feel safer knowing that his message is going to get out there. Read on for the details…
From The Press Release:
Produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (“Girls Against Boys”), “L.A. Slasher” is a biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous. It explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the ‘L.A. Slasher’ publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them.
Says producer Wright, “We are really quite pleased to work with Circus Road Films in bringing our film to audiences. Given the L.A. Slasher’s growing social media presence – the Twitter page alone has 75 thousand followers and is growing every day – there is clearly an interest in this subject matter, and I think audiences will love our director’s clever and visually kinetic examination of America’s cultural obsession with faux-celebrity.”
