The movie draws inspiration from genre classics, taking influence from Black Christmas, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Silent Night Deadly Night, Assault on Precinct 13, whilst still harkening to the new breed of horror thrillers like You’re Next, The Devils Rejects and The Purge. It is set for release Christmas 2016. Here’s the synopsis: “A homeless war-veteran with a chequered past must rely on a side of himself once thought buried when he and his companions are targeted on Christmas Day by three vicious psychopaths in Santa suits.”
GOOG TIDINGS is Written and conceived by horror enthusiasts Stu Jopia, Stuart W. Bedford and Giovanni Gentile, who recently penned this years zombie action thriller ‘Apocalypse’ and next year’s monster fuelled H.P Lovecraft inspired horror anthology ‘Dark Continents’.
Shot on a location in a disused courthouse in Southport, Merseyside; Amanda Robertshaw has opened the courthouse doors for the first time and allowed a film crew inside to create this daring 70’s style siege movie.
Director/Writer Stuart W. Bedford tells us “We’ve always been fascinated by Exploitation movies. Good Tidings is our love-letter to those phenomenal slashers from the 70’s and 80’s, tied together by a festive satire: Christmas is cruel to the poor.”
Writer/Producer Stu Jopia says “Christmas themed horror movies are my favourite holiday movies, so much festive fun to be had, and a slasher/siege movie featuring three psychopathic killer Santa’s is exactly what Christmas time has been crying out for.”
Producer/Writer Giovanni Gentile adds “There are not enough Christmas slashers out there. It is our mission to add to this genre pool, and have a merry bloody time doing it.”
