Absorb these facts, because they’re very important. The title is Don’t Move. The director is Bloody Cuts mainstay Anthony Melton. The writer is series newcomer David Scullion. A lot of the rest of it still needs to be worked out. Anyway! Read on for Anthony’s thoughts on making the jump to director, plus some exciting news about the premiere of this eighth piece in the Bloody Cuts jigsaw.
Here’s what Anthony has to say about taking the directorial reins on Don’t Move: “Bloody Cuts has been an absolutely magnificent endeavour over the last 18 months and a real pleasure to have met and worked with such terrifyingly wonderful people.”
“So I am very honoured to have been given the opportunity to direct episode 8 and bring another short tale of terror to our gracious audience both on and offline. I’m very excited to be working with the Bloody Cuts and Millennium FX crews again and really pleased to have met David Scullion and to be now directing one of his great scripts.
“I don’t want to say anything about Don’t Move just yet, but after the impending release of episode 7 we’ll begin to feed things through from the other side (of the camera)…”
So there you go. You don’t need to be as sharp as Michael Myers’ babysitter-slitter to realise that Anthony’s just dropped a little clue as to what Don’t Move is all about. But if we told you more now, we’d have to kill you. And then you’d probably come back and haunt us. Which’d be no fun for anyone.
Don’t Move will be making its international debut at the Bootleg Film Festival on 23 March at the Bootleg Film Festival in Edinburgh, where all prior seven episodes of Bloody Cuts will also be screened. The fiesta of screen horror will be unfurling in the city’s Banshee Labyrinth boozer, and Anthony and his fellow Bloody Cuts producer Ben Franklin will both be attending.
