Welcome to “The Horror!”
(a slapstick comedy)

The Horror!

A film crew and cast have exactly 12 days to make a horror film. The problem is, they’re not exactly competent. After several accidents with boom poles, falling lights, and cables that trip and strangle, one final Rube Goldberg accident crashes half their equipment. They rally, and seem to be on track, when their monster suit gets burnt to a crisp. With no earthly hope left, they turn to supernatural means to finish their film. And just how, exactly, does that work?

Key points:

  • Slapstick is back, baby!
  • We are aiming for distribution, not just festival appearances—i.e., we plan to make money and we believe we can.
  • When we say “distribution,” we mean “Coming to a theater near you!”
  • Going to the American Film Market in November to solicit producers and funding.

Status: Scouted the location June 21, 2019. Got it for free! (It’s huge, and it’s amazing.) Character brainstorm session June 22. Script in progress.

“The Horror” is a slapstick comedy feature film to be written, directed, and executive produced by Jonny Lewis.
