Anthony, Ben and Jonny chat with Ryan Connolly for FIlm Riot Mondays…
Darkness is coming. Darkness and screaming and blood. So much blood.
We have looked into the future and it is filled with terror and horror like you’ve never experienced before. Unless you’ve spent an evening clubbing in Chelmsford, of course (then this’ll be a walk in the park… albeit in a park full of evil psychopaths).
In one fortnight’s time something terrifying will happen.
EVIL WILL RISE.
That’s right ladies, gentlemen and demonic entities – we have a release date for “Don’t Move”, the much-anticipated eighth episode of our terrifying short film series.
Sod the Easter Bunny. Sod the Daffodils, don’t even think of taking a long weekend somewhere without internet access… like The Moon. You guessed it – “Don’t Move” will be released at a 00:01 on Easter Sunday (March 31st) so it’ll be ready for you to watch whilst feasting on over priced chocolate.
Set on one fateful evening, six friends gather for a night of drinking, fun and games… and end up unleashing a horror they couldn’t even begin to imagine.
EVIL. WILL. RISE.
Yeah, so Happy Easter! We wouldn’t recommend stuffing yourself with Lindt bunnies and mini-eggs before watching Episode 8 of our 13-part series… otherwise it might all come back up like a particularly chocolatey tsunami of brown sludge.
“Don’t Move” is our bloodiest, boldest and most ambitious short yet. And it’s coming to a computer near you (and literally everywhere… apart from North Korea. They have no idea what they’re missing).
“Don’t Move” is written by Bloody Cuts newcomer (and ‘BC Bloglord’) David Scullion and marks the directorial debut of long-time Bloody Cuts producer & super-editor Anthony Melton.
If you can’t wait until Easter then join Anthony, Scullion and Bloody Cuts creator Ben Franklin in Edinburgh on March 23rd (that’s next Saturday, calendar fans!) at the premiere of “Don’t Move” at the truly awesome Bootleg Film Festival.
When the clock strikes Midnight and the world moves onto March 31st 2013 you can guarantee one thing will happen.
EVIL. WILL. RISE.
You have been warned.
Hear Alison Turner and Daniel Gorton, interview Producer/Director Anthony Melton concerning Episode 8, Crowd Funding and throwing hearts and lungs around a set…

Here’s a special post-release trailer to help spread some Death Scenes propaganda. Please share as far and wide as you dare http://youtu.be/M4HqwSMy3ao
Episode 8: Death Scenes is nearing 7,000 views it’d be awesome to get it up to 10,000 by the end of the month.
Check out his top class design from the “One-Man-American-Horror-Show” Marc Schoenbach.
Born from a passion for the golden age of slasher films, “Dead Man’s Lake” is a story drawn from the brain of Bloody creator Ben Franklin, who takes Directing duties for the first time. Armed with a script from Joel Morgan, the team set about creating an 80′s period horror that would capture the spirit of that era whilst giving it a unique Bloody Cuts killer twist. Filmed entirely on exterior locations, the film sees many firsts for the team, including some of the most extreme scenes we’ve brought to the screen so far!
Shot on an Arri Alexa, the 2 day shoot threw many seemingly impossible tasks in front of the team, but we wouldn’t be defeated. Quite the opposite, as we produced the longest film of the series, shot on 3 separate locations, and with the biggest cast yet – including Harry Potter star Jon Campling.
The Post Production process on Dead Man’s Lake was the most intensive to date, with over 40 VFX shots to complete, as well as an authentic grade from popular colourist Patrick Inhofer (Tao of Color). But the time spent in our darkened edit suites was worth the sacrifice, as we produced a film that is every bit what Bloody Cuts is all about… Pure unadulterated horror!!
Drenched clothes, burnt faces and a smashed car, this is one summer the Bloody Cuts team won’t forget in a hurry!
Before you peepers lies the last in the “Deluxe behind-the series” features Holly Jacobson, our awesome and frighteningly talented young actor from Suckablood.

Check out ‘Flesh Art’ by fellow Bloody Cutter; Chris Goodman.
‘Flesh Art’ is the story of a man who, in the face of global catastrophe has chosen to hide deep down in the forgotten spaces of a derelict subway system. With the collapse of society, this social misfit takes the opportunity to follow his long buried artistic dreams to their terrible conclusion.
With no law and no one to stop him he is free to make his art-work out of the one raw material that he lusts after like no other – human flesh! And in this dark new world dead flesh is in abundance because up above him the dead walk like the living – and his art is about to become the ultimate performance piece!
Flesh Art was directed by myself and Nick Thompson while we were students at the National Film and Television and School, and was shown at the graduation day and then as part of the short film selection at FrightFest 2011.
Our aim was to produce a tight, fast paced little shocker with a twisted little idea at the centre of it. The story of a man who made artworks out of living dead body parts seemed to be just the right idea to give us some scope for unsettling images!
Through the FrightFest screening I was put in contact with Ben Franklin and the Bloody Cuts team and have since worked as Art Director on all of their films since ‘Mother Died’. I look forward to being further involved in the grisly escapades of this exciting film-making collective.
We are very proud to feature ‘Flesh Art’ as the first short film that Bloody Cuts will be championing right here on www.bloodycuts.com
