Hell Town posterFANGORIA premieres trailer for HELL TOWN”

Hell Town, USA—FANGORIA has exclusively unveiled the trailer for HELL TOWN, a new horror soap-opera slasher film co-directed by cult filmmaker Steve Balderson (PEP SQUAD, FIRECRACKER) and Elizabeth Spear.

HELL TOWN follows the melodramatic antics of high school seniors clashing over love, sex, and betrayal.  In the middle of all the one-sided infatuations, backstabbing bitchiness, bottled-up sexuality, sibling rivalry and general small-town angst, there is the “Letter Jacket Killer” who is killing students in a variety of sadistic ways.  As the body count rises and the blood pools closer to home, it becomes clear that one of our main characters is the killer…but who?  Everyone, from the Prom Queen and Shirtless Jock to the Nosey Geek and Super Bitch, are all suspect.

The tale of the Letter Jacket Killer is presented as a slice of soap opera.  Literally.  Balderson and Spear have carved the story as three consecutive mid-season episodes of a fictitious TV serial, including opening and closing credits.

“The inspiration,” Balderson says, “comes from the Netflix model of the world.  It’s so much fun to binge-watch an addictive show—especially serials involving catfights, cliffhangers and murder.”

  1. Hmmm. As a fan of both soap operas and horror movies, this should have my name all over it. But when even your trailer is badly edited, that doesn’t inspire me with much hope for the movie itself.
