Christmas Slay

Kent, GB
FUNDED

Summary

'CHRISTMAS SLAY' is a unique take on the slash and stalk genre, a film inspired by so many great movie such as FRIDAY 13th, HALLOWEEN, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, and so many other cult horror classics of the 1980's.

Our aim is to make an original slasher film franchise with a modern look and twist which stays true to the genre's original roots.

The story of CHRISTMAS SLAY begins on a wintry Christmas Eve in the picturesque Kentish countryside, the horrific murder of a loving family, and the capture of a Santa Claus obsessed blood thirsty killer.
As Christmas dawns closer the following year, a group of collage girlfriends decide to get away from it all and relax and party over the Christmas holiday, they decide to escape to the idyllic Mistletoe Lodge nestled within the beautiful snowy mountains of the Scottish Highlands, but what starts off as the perfect festive getaway of fun in the snow and a glass of eggnog or two, suddenly descends in to gruesome blood bath of terror, and a fight for survival.

Filming & Locations

The story of CHRISTMAS SLAY is set in Kent in the South East of England and the beautiful mountains of the Scottish Highlands.

The first section of our film will see us filming our intro and other key scenes in and around the area's of the famously bleak Romney Marshes, before going on to our main shoot.

Now in theory the CHRISTMAS SLAY team should be heading on up to Scotland to film the second and main section of the film, but unfortunately this wont be the case, filming in the UK means paying UK prices and the cost of our required location, transportation fee's and accommodation for our 16 cast and crew would mean we would need to Fan Fund another £10,000, bringing the total required budget to £30,000 ( $48395 US ) so we had to find a cheaper alternative location, and we did.

As nice as it would have been to completely film CHRISTMAS SLAY here in the UK, we have now found the perfect location close to the Ski resort of Borovets in Bulgaria in one of the highest villages in the Balkan Mountain Range.

Our Bulgarian location has so much more to offer, as well as being our filming location it will also provide accommodation for our 16 cast and crew members during two week shoot, another plus is that the area is extremely remote and so high above sea level that snow and lots of it is pretty much a guaranteed thing, but the best thing of all about filming in this location is the total cost, two week's accommodation in our filming location, with all the flights and travel expenses work out less than what it would cost for one week in a Scottish location.
