    Local Film Alert: 'Slasher' to Premiere at Village 8
    Print this page

    The slasher film is a time-honored tradition within the horror genre. Our fascination with them is curious. Firstly, they all tell pretty much the same story: a group of people are being stalked by a killer and systematically removed from the ranks of the living in horrific and gruesome ways. What differentiates each film is the setup and, of course, the nature of the kills. Which begs the second point: why do we get such a kick out of seeing such violence, often for its own sake? Who knows? But a large number of us do, and are unashamed of what it might imply about our mental states.

    Those people will be present at Village 8 Theaters this Sunday, April 12, for a special screening: the premiere of the locally-produced independent film Slasher. The plot revolves around the employees of Fresh Air Productionz, a media company. As they are taken out, one by one, desperation to find the killer means everyone is a suspect and secrets and lies are exposed.

    Director Jonathan Rowan is a sort of Renaissance man when it comes to creative expression. His media education started in 2007 at Northern Kentucky University. This eventually led to the vision of his first feature-length film: Slasher, which began production in March of 2011. Now, it is finally having its premiere.

    Slasher will screen at 5:00 at Village 8 on Sunday. It will be followed by an encore screening at 7:00. Tickets are $6 and will be available at the box office. Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Complete information can be found at the film’s Facebook page, the premiere’s event page, or at the film’s official website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
