BLOOD ON THE REEL: THE GUTS BEHIND INDIE HORROR by Johnny Daggers (DaggerVision Films) – A Look At The First 9 Minutes by Malevolent Magazine

10631243_1464762153798538_2513767991201830493_oFrom the vision of Indie Horror filmmaker Johnny Daggers (DaggerVision Films) in association with SGL Entertainment comes the documentary BLOOD ON THE REEL: THE GUTS BEHIND INDIE HORROR. The Indie Horror filmmakers have the heart to make these films, but do you have the guts to watch?

I was approached by my good friend Johnny Daggers to screen the first 9 minutes of BOTR. I’ve been intrigued by the film since first featuring Johnny in Malevolent Magazine last year and seeing how passionate he is about it, his craft and Indie Horror itself. There was no doubt in my mind that this inside look into the minds of indie filmmakers in the genre would be as educational as entertaining.

We’re immediately dropped into a bubbling blood-soaked brew stirred by the catchy, eerie and perfectly fitting theme music composed by Marijin Knezevic. With an introduction by everybody’s favorite Horror Hostess Bianca Alliane, she sets up and opens the gate to our visceral path to answer the question: Does Indie Horror defy the basic standards of morality and decency?

BOTR is a raw, uncut, uncensored look at the bloody gore-filled, taboo and controversial subjects associated with Horror and the sub-genres such as Slashers. Film director Kelly Hughes informs us of a little known movement in the 80’s to ban Slashers, protesting against violence toward women. Renowned European actress Manoush weighs in on the subject of Horror being degrading for women. The Evil Twins let us know just how much they love gore and nothing is too depraved for them to delve into. Like filmmaker Massimiliano Cerchi says, if Horror movies are too gory, degrading or shocking…simply don’t watch them.

From a grindhouse brand of editing and fast paced segment excerpts to countdowns from the early days of television and attention grabbing quotes from today’s Indie Horror filmmakers, BLOOD ON THE REEL will keep you watching and hungry to feed your voracious appetite for this inside look at a fast growing Indie Horror Community. Horns up to Johnny Daggers for this one of a kind, cutting edge piece of film history. Malevolent Magazine is proud to be a part of the film and I (Emory Slone) may even show up somewhere in it! You will hear all about it when Daggers returns for a special Blood On The Reel issue in August. Stay tuned.
