Blahblahblahplugs: The Bloody Bay Movie Project
The Bloody Bay Movie Project is something that's close to my heart and so I thought I would throw it a little blahblahblahplug.
Writer, producer, director, editor extraordinaire Simon Bonner has written a fun and vital piece of the current handheld horror oeuvre and is writing a blog about his experiences trying to get the movie produced. He's also looking for funding.
Simon is currently based in the Caribbean paradise of Trinidad & Tobago and this is the setting for Bloody Bay. Having read an early draft of the script myself I can tell you that the film follows a British honeymooning couple on the trip of a lifetime that suddenly goes horribly wrong. The script blends the local folklore of Papa Bois, Soucouyant and Lusca with recent iconic sci-fi/horror films such as Cloverfield, Monsters and Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus.
Personally I'm not a fan of these kinds of movies but I read the script and loved it, if there's one thing Simon knows it's how to use a strong structure to hang an entertaining concept on and this has both.
I've worked closely with him in the past on micro budget pictures and there's nobody I would rather work with when things are tight. That's why I currently have my hand up for directing this film. I did say it was close to my heart.
