Slasher Studios Upcoming Film "Dismembering Christmas" Starts a Crowdfunding Campaign July 1st - PRESS RELEASE
Dismembering Christmas is the second slasher feature from the independent
film company known as Slasher Studios. In 2013, Slasher Studios released
their first slasher feature entitled Dont Go to the Reunion. After
playing in over a dozen film festivals and winning several awards
(including Best Actress at Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival and
Audience Choice at Killer Film Fest), Slasher Studios is back with their
latest slasher and they need YOUR help!
A tribute to the glory days of holiday horror, Dismembering Christmas can
best be described as Friday the 13th meets Black Christmas. Have you ever
wanted a Friday the 13th set in the winter? Well..so did Slasher Studios
and thats why they created this movie just for you. Practical effects
from beginning to end, likable characters, and a kick ass final
girl...what more could you want in a slasher?
It was supposed to be a holiday vacation they would never forget, not a
holiday vacation they would never survive.
When Mark and his friends go up to his fathers new vacation home for
Christmas vacation, they were ready for a fun time. Out in the middle of
nowhere, the house is cheerfully decorated for Christmas. But an unknown
visitor is there, and one by one they are murdered. Its Christmas and not
a creature is stirring except the killer in the house...
Johnathon Krautkramer (Justin)
The hardest casting decision Slasher Studios has ever had to make. We had
over 30 actors audition for the role of Justin, the male lead, in
Dismembering Christmas. After much consideration, we are proud to announce
Johnathon Krautkramer as Justin. We worked with Johnathon on Dont Go to
the Reunion and we are sure hes going to be as bloody good here as he was
in that film.
Baker Chase (Mark)
Joining the Slasher Studios family from L.A. is up-and-coming actor Baker
Chase. Baker will be playing the role of Mark, the smooth talking but
down-to-earth rich kid, in Dismembering Christmas. He also appeared in
the horror anthology flick H-8, the indie comedy-drama Opening Night, and
the upcoming webseries Dating Pains.
Austin Bosley (Travis)
Slasher Studios would like to welcome Austin Bosley to the slasher family.
Austin is a Writer/Director/Actor on the web-series Survival of the
Dumbest and will be playing the role of Travis, the typical small town
kid who cares a bit more about girls than he does about his future, in
Marla Van Lanen (Miss Harris)
We worked with her on Dont Go to the Reunion as the bitchy Mrs. Sorensen
and now shes back for Dismembering Christmas. Marla Van Lanen will be
playing the Miss Harris, the local woman who knows about the small towns
dirty past. We are sure shes going to kick some ass in this flick.
Scott Seagren (Lt Fuller)
We received over two dozen auditions for the role of Lt. Fuller and it was
a very difficult decision to make. With that being said, joining the
Slasher Studios family is Scott Seagren as Lt. Fuller, the hard-nosed cop
that knows a secret behind the town's dirty past. Scott also worked on the
webseries Survival of the Dumbest with Austin as well as wrote and
directed the short film Indemnity.
Austin Bosley (Director)
Austin Bosley, who will also be playing Travis in the film, will be
directing the new Slasher Studios holiday horror. Austin has a lot of
passion, energy, and excitement for both the genre as well as the script
we wrote. We couldn't be more excited to be working with him and we know
hes going to do a killer job on this one.
Kevin Sommerfield (Co-Writer/Executive Producer)
Kevin Sommerfield is the co-writer and Executive Producer behind the
latest Slasher Studios slasher. Hes been a writer on every project
Slasher Studios has created including the short films Teddy, Popularity
Killer, and Blood Brothers. Last year he released the first feature from
the company, the 80s slasher homage Dont Go to the Reunion.
Andrew Beirl (Co-Producer)
Joining the Slasher Studios team as a co-producer (who has been a huge
help in casting, location scouting, and coming up with bloody good
Christmas style deaths) is Andrew Beirl. He's a hell of a good horror
friend and we are thrilled to have him as part of this project. He's also
the new co-host of Slasher Studios Horror Podcast so make sure to listen

for Dismembering Christmas. Zachary Allen is back and this time he will be
co-producing our latest slasher as well as doing wardrobe as well as some
sure to be amazing set design.
