The blood is flowing on campus and it has trickled down to
us, as we’ve got three exclusive pics from the currently lensing MURDER
UNIVERSITY to share with you.
Shooting on Rhode Island locations and presently three weeks
into production, MURDER UNIVERSITY is being directed by Richard Griffin,
marking a change of pace from his previous, more humorously inclined outings
like THE DISCO EXORCIST and NUN OF THAT. This one, scripted by acclaimed New
England playwright Lenny Schwartz, is a homage to ’80s slasher fare, and
Griffin says, “Even though we’re just past the one-third mark of production,
MURDER UNIVERSITY has turned out to be our most bloodsoaked feature to date.
It’s wonderful having such talented special effects artists as Eric Rodrigues
and Jordan Pacheco to create such gruesome works of art. I know horror fans are
pretty much fed up to the eyeballs with CG gore and want a return to the
hand-crafted artistry of practical makeup effects, and MURDER UNIVERSITY
delivers bucketfuls of the gruesome groceries. For all those horror fans who
are sick to death of found-footage films and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY riffs, I
promise MURDER UNIVERSITY will be a gore-filled, gourmet cinematic cheeseburger
you can enjoy with a bunch of friends and your best six-pack!"
Producer Ted Marr adds, “The entire cast is really topnotch,
with our three leads, Jamie Dufault, Michael Thurber and Sammi Acampora, giving
performances that easily rival anything seen in a multimillion-dollar
blockbuster. It’s so important in a horror film that you actually care about
the characters you put in harm’s way, and our actors really make these people
three-dimensional, and not just the typical ‘dead meat characters’ you see in
most slasher films of this type.” You can visit MURDER UNIVERSITY on Facebook
