BritFlicks is delighted to exclusively release the PAINTBALL MASSACRE Teaser Trailer and artwork.
Over the last of couple weeks, a British Independent film has come back onto our radar, the dark comedy horror PAINTBALL MASSACRE, brought to you by industry newcomers Infinity Film Studios and Boisterous Brothers Media. On their social media accounts they have been treating us to some sneak peak looks at for things to come. Here is the synopsis to wet your film fan appetite.
Synopsis: True British dark comedy horror at its finest. Providing suspense, gore and a few laughs along the way. When a group of old school friends from Mass Acre Prep School are reunited after 10 years, everything is not quite as it seems. An organised paintball trip ran by three smug marshals, led by Marshal Shelley (Katy Brand) puts them in the middle of nowhere, miles away from civilisation. The final game “Capture the fort” does not go according to plan and it is clear to them that there is a cold-blooded masked killer on the loose. With no real plan, they decide to make their way back to basecamp to try and call for help. Unintentionally getting split up does not improve their chances of survival, the killer proceeds to track down and kill each off one by one in the most intriguing way which links them to their profession. There are blood, guts, fire and explosions whilst each meets their gruesome untimely death. Who is this masked killer? Why the class of 2004? Has their past come to take it’s revenge? Questions then begin to be answered as the film takes an amazing turn and the twist is revealed. The last remaining school friends band together to lure the killer into a barn. Using any object they can lay their hands on to use as a weapon to aid them in the final kill or be killed fight to the death. Will anyone survive their 10th year school anniversary or is this the end of class of 2004?
Described as Hot Fuzz meets Dog Soldiers, PAINTBALL MASSACRE written by Chris Regan (London Heist), directed by Darren Berry and produced by Joe Hallett and Brendan Carr, brings together a collection of known faces and some very talented up and coming actors. In this teaser we can spot a few of those faces, including British Comedian actress Katy Brand, best known for her ITV2 Parody show “Katy Brand’s big ass show”. Singer / actor Lee Latchford-Evans, most known as one fifth of hit pop band Steps, previous credits include “Dead Ringer” and “The Rizen”. Also the Hellraiser chatterer cenobite himself, Nicholas Vince makes a memorable appearance as the bartender. Also in the mix are up and coming actors, Paul Holbrook who is taking no hostages as Paintball Marshal Gary, actress Cheryl Burniston seems to be the central character to the story, Natasha Killip brings some women power to proceedings while actors Nathan Clough, Ryan Winsley and Tony Banham get into a spot of trouble.
If this teaser trailer is anything to go by we are all in for a real thrill ride. They have been clever to not reveal any spoilers. What we can clearly see is there is going be blood, loads of it, explosions, intense moments with some light-hearted elements to lessen the impact. Shot on location in the heart of the Somerset countryside, with a micro budget, this film is definitely one for the watch list.
Producer Joe Hallett adds “2019 was a very busy year for us in post-production. I am now excited and proud to finally be releasing our first visuals of the film in conjunction with BritFlicks. Our editor Dan Jewell from Key Eye Media has done a superb job bringing our vision to life. This film really has been a labour of love for everyone involved”.
