L.A. Slasher

LA-SlasherThe Martin Owen-directed feature film L.A. Slasher, produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (Girls Against Boys, The Alphabet Killer), has set May 1, 2015, as the date for a theatrical release.

The film stars Dave Bautista (of the blockbuster hit Guardians of the Galaxy), Danny Trejo (Machete), Mischa Barton (“The O.C.”), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), Drake Bell (“Drake & Josh”), Brooke Hogan (“Hogan Knows Best”), Tori Black (Not Another Celebrity Movie), and Marisa Lauren (Superhero Movie) with the of voice of Andy Dick (“NewsRadio”) as the “L.A. Slasher.”

A biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous, L.A. Slasher explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the “L.A. Slasher” publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them.
