Guess what the key color is on this “artist’s” palette?
Director/co-writer Jacob Ennis (KILL, GRANNY, KILL!, STASH) is a few scenes away from wrapping production in Louisville, KY on his latest feature THE ART OF KILLING. Co-scripted and produced by Gregory W. Brock, it stars Jason Crowe, Kayla Perkins, Dixie Gers, Ka’ssee Robinson, Matthew Barnett, Rayann Houghlin-Walker, Connor Holden, Deaton Gabbard, Drew Marvick, Roni Jonah, Timothy Curry and Heather Harlow. The official synopsis describes it as “an ’80s throwback horror film about TV personality Leland Moss [Crowe], host of PAINTING WITH FRIENDS. Behind his sparkling personality are some very dark secrets and when a family of devout fans win a contest to meet their beloved icon, they may get more than they bargained for. They just may find that his first stroke will be their last.”
Marilyn Manson guitarist Paul Wiley, composer of the TERRIFIER duo, will score THE ART OF KILLING, which features makeup effects by Steve-o Shepherd. The filmmakers currently have an Indiegogo page up to secure finishing funds, offering a wide variety of perks and including a teaser trailer.
