Tagline - 'Some Scars Never Heal'
Blood! Guts! Girls! ...and rabbits! Cutter has a bit of everything to entertain you horror lovers out there. The slasher genre has thrived, demised and revived itself during the twentieth century and continues with its formidable nature to date. Forget about the supernatural monsters, possessed children, myths and legends of things that go bump in the night. Cutter is old school horror you do not want to miss. Returning to the classic style of slasher carnage and mayhem, one real, frightening man will exact a reign of terror from the darkest reaches of the Mississippi swamps. Help us make this nightmare come true...
Artists imagining of what Cutter will look like
Cutter is a feature length American Horror, produced by London based company One Eyed Dog Films, set and to be shot in Canton, Mississippi. The film has a fantastic cast and a great production team on board and is looking for that extra bit of help and to give back to fans of the genre with some great perks.
It is the nature of horror films to portray a villain as epitomising everything that is wrong with society. Box office baddies are bloodthirsty murderers and rapists. As a rule they have generally lost sight of their humanity and are not able to comprehend the consequences of their actions. This is why Cutter stands out and goes against the grain. For the first time cinema audiences will find themselves questioning their own beliefs and principals when they are confronted by Cutter himself.
A group of young, twentysomething friends take a trip into the Deep South to get away from it all, party and have a good time. However, their plans are thwarted when they unwittingly cross paths with Cutter: a mysterious, deranged man living in the wilderness of the Mississippi swamps. Upon discovering by chance a seemingly abandoned trawler in a secluded bayou, the happy-go-lucky posse fall victim to the feral psychopath who has been living in the dilapidated boat in isolation, cut off from the world.
The film is set deep within the Canton Mississippi bayou
When the lone survivor and heroine of the piece, Amanda, is captured and kept alive by Cutter we are able to delve deeper into the mind of the serial killer and gain an insight into his past and why he has evolved into an emotionally and physically scarred homicidal maniac. It soon becomes evident that Cutter is not the only villain to fear when a bounty hunter and the local law enforcement arrive, seeking the fortune of what is hidden in the depths of Cutter's lair and proving the morals of man are ambiguous and not so black and white.
The narrative explores the psychoanalysis of abuse, comparing both our main protagonist Amanda and her adversary Cutter, clashing with the superficial gluttony of the outside world. This climaxes in a violent bloody showdown, pitting the transgressors against each other where the hunger for riches conflicts with the primal urge to survive in the hostile backwaters of civilization and humanity.Storyboard which details the events in which Cutter was kidnapped from his family before he was turned into a monstrous killer
Will good conquer the two evils or will right and wrong remain as grey and murky as the treacherous marshland...?
