STAB KILL DIE
Horror-Comedy | 70 min. | CAN | 2018
Nine reels of 1970’s drive-in gut-smashing, cheerleader-bleeding, satanic-slashing mayhem!
BEHIND THE SCENES: “Stab Kill Die”! marks the first official feature film from Creepy Six Films in six years, since 2012’s “The Hard Cut”; and is genre film director Vince D’Amato’s 8th feature film. “Stab Kill Die” is not an entirely new film; the material in this dual-universe dark horror-comedy was originally produced from 2005 to 2011, and most of the material had been released in various broken-up versions such as web series and supplemental shorts for various DVD releases. Now, film company Darkside Releasing has taken all of the original film-transfer materials back to the editing studio to create this wild, integral epic of sex and gore; inspired by the likes of Bigas Luna’s 1987 mind-bending horror cult classic “Anguish”, and which now boasts way more sex and gore than ever, and is the second-most-expensive low-budget film Creepy Six Films has ever produced (at a whopping $15,000, it comes in second only to the original and far-more-expensive “Vampires vs Zombies”).
DARKSIDE RELEASING will give STAB KILL DIE its official market debut in 2018 at the American Film Market (AFM), although it will be available for some quiet pre-sales during the Marche du Film at Cannes this spring.
THE PLOT: After confronting her best friend for cheating with her husband, Lorraine (Danielle Korda) heads to a theatre to watch the latest horror movie, which features a team of Satanic cheerleaders (Jennifer Wright, Janessa O’Hearn, Laura Leone Hancock, and Kacie Heart) who murder and cannibalize their way through a wild and weird “cheerleaders’ retreat”. Meanwhile, Lorriane’s sanity snaps and she begins to dispatch bloody revenge of her own, unaware that she’s being manipulated by a gory alien sex parasite that has been infecting each of her sexual partners. As both stories play out through parallel worlds of insane horror, neither of the realities are what they first seem to be, leading to an explosively bloody climax.
PRODUCED BY the collaborative film companies Darkside Releasing & Creepy Six Films, STAB KILL DIE was shot on 16mm film… and lovingly directed by Vince D’Amato. This kinetic, gory, sexy homage to the wild and uninhibited cinema of the 1970s takes a warped turn through Darkside Releasing’s head-tripping lens in this 2018 amped-up reworking of Creepy Six Films’ original “Catholic Cheerleaders for Satan” viral webseries.
CREEPY SIX FILMS was founded in December 2001 by Vince D’Amato and Nicole Hancock to produce genre films for the international film market. Since 2001 Creepy Six Films has worked with the international distribution companies The Asylum, Brain Damage Films, and Unearthed Films; and have produced and released our own experimental, surreal, and comedic horror and revenge movies for film market territories all over the world.
APRIL 2017 marked the 15-year shooting-anniversary for our first feature cult film CARMILLA THE LESBIAN VAMPIRE. Fifteen years ago we brought American cult-movie icon Brinke Stevens up to Vancouver to collaborate on the kitschy-gory vampire/zombie movie with Creepy Six Films – production wrapped in early May of 2002. The film completed post-production and was screened in Vancouver’s Cinematheque theatre in 2003, and the movie was subsequently signed to The Asylum for global distribution in October of that year. The Asylum then unleashed the film into the world in May of 2004. In 2008, Unearthed Film picked up the film for a second time and re-released an Uncut Special Edition in 2008. In 2015, Creepy Six Films made a Limited Dual-DVD Edition available in the online store.
