Goody Two-Shoes In Full Wachtercolor

Dead Hooker In A Trunk Art

A cel phone photo surfaced on facebook of some original art based on the Goody Two Shoes character in the indie-hit film Dead Hooker In A Trunk. It is watercolor lined with fine point pen and a sharpie by the extremely thoughtful Zach Shildwachter. He writes for the popular horror site Blood Sprayer who had this, in part, to say about the film:

The soundtrack sets an adventurous tone. Bands like Fake Shark–Real Zombie!, Ione Sky, the Titan Go Kings, and an original score by CJ Wallis makes you want to stand up and then update your iPod. The pairings of songs with the content on screen offers a disturbing duality, one that soothes the audience into the plethora of violence and yet amps up the drama. The Soska Sisters know that a rock ‘n roll adventure needs just that, rock’ n roll, and they crank plenty of it, nice and loud. It plays like what MTV should be if we lived in a world of permanent midnight.
DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK is truth in advertising, crystallized, and ready to addict all those jonesing for a hit. You don’t need a review to sell it to you because the title alone will bring you to the fringe festivals and midnight screenings where fans of such films will gobble this alive. It’s a high octane gear grinder, shifting back and forth between action and horror, drama and comedy, leaving a trail of dead bodies and broken hearts in one blood splattering burn out. As the end credits roll, you wonder what could possibly come next from this troublesome twosome and hot damn, I call shotgun to ride along.

New Trailer For Soska Sisters Second Film American Mary

This past Saturday a promotional trailer was created for the second feature from Jen & Sylvia Soska called American Mary. The finished advert has been shown to a few limited eyes to get some nice blognoise spreading around, like the article on popular site "Anything Horror." In brief:

I promised the [Soska] sisters that I wouldn’t go into too much detail about their new film; they put a private, “eyes only” trailer up and I am one of the lucky ones to see it.  The new film is called AMERICAN MARY and Jen and Sylvia wrote, directed, and produced it.  But they also decided to keep the same talented people involved with this new film.  C.J. Wallis (who wrote the original music, did the cinematography, edited, and did the visual f/x for DEAD HOOKER) is again doing the cinematography and editing and is also a producer on AMERICAN MARY.  I know you remember C.J. Wallis … he played “Goody Two Shoes” in DEAD HOOKER!
You can check out the entire article by clicking here.  The trailer will be embedded onto the front page of  their official website on the company's second anniversary, December 11th, 2010.
