Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter director Lee Demarbre has been hard at work on Smash Cut just up the road from ScreenAnarchy-central for a good while now and the first stills of stars David Hess and Michael Berryman have just been passed our way. What's it about?
Smash Cut is the dizzying portrayal of ABLE WHITMAN, a trouble filmmaker losing his mind in an extraordinary way.
After his latest “serious” film is met with gales of laughter, Able decides to drown his sorrows at a local strip club--where he meets dancer GIGI SPOT. Minutes later, he’s convinced the honey dripping sex-pot to star in his next project. Minutes after that, he’s killed her in a drunk driving accident. Needing to dispose of the body, Able stumbles upon the one place nobody would notice a corpse…spread around the set of his new horror film. When the response to this new footage is praised for its realism, the guilt ridden Able has a complete mental breakdown. Believing he has finally discovered the key to making a great horror film, the director quickly discovers that one human body doesn’t yield a lot of parts, and if he wants to finish, he’s going to have to keep on killing.
Meanwhile, Gigi’s sister APRIL hires the city’s most celebrated private detective, ISAAC BEAUMONDE, to investigate Gigi’s disappearance. But when the simple missing person investigation turns into a string of stomach turning murders, Isaac realizes he’s found the case of a lifetime.
With Beaumonde hot on his heels, his sanity unspooling and his collaborators dropping like flies, will Able have the time, focus and resources to complete his magnum opus, or will he simply fade to black?
You'll find the stills of Hess and Berryman - plus one of a very dead Gigi, just for good measure - at the link below and you can find an exclusive teaser for the film below the break in the ScreenAnarchy Player.
