If you loved Anna and the Apocalypse, The Evil Dead or Buffy’s Once More With Feeling then Powertool Cheerleaders Vs the Boyband of the Screaming Dead which is crowdfunding now on Kickstarter looks like just the movie for you.
The movie features an enthusiastic but dysfunctional cheerleading troop who are on the brink of falling apart when they make it through to the finals of a TV talent show, but a cursed amulet turns their rival boyband act into a screeching gang of zombies. So the girls must learn to use their wits, friendship and assorted powertools before the TV finale takes a turn for the apocalyptic!
Powertool Cheerleaders Vs the Boyband of the Screaming Dead is written and directed by Pat Higgins who says the movie will offer: ‘Ridiculous gore, loveable characters, eye-popping visuals (sometimes literally) and toe-tapping songs. Something for the Rocky Horror and Little Shop crowd, but with a harder edge and a 21st century sensibility that will rip the roof off.’
The film will feature Charlie Bond as Emily the leader of the cheerleaders, James Hamer-Morton as Hunter the leader of the zombie boyband, Justin Chinyere as Connor and Dani Thompson as the cheerleader’s hard nosed manager Chloe. Hothouse pal Carrie Thompson (formerly Marx) whose theatrical shows BADD, Unburied and April were firm Hothouse favourites will play cheerleader Brianna. the film will also feature Hothouse pals Al Ronald and Cy Henty of the Electric Head.
We think this is going to be a brilliant movie so if you have a few quid, Euro or dollars to spare contribute here
