Are you ready 70s’ and 80s’ kids? Two horror scream queens from different generations have come together and co-founded what is now, MoonCats Motion Picture Company in three genre productions constructed for Domestic Distribution, Commercial Exhibition and Elevated Festival Programming.
Stacey Nelkin (Halloween III: Season of the Witch, The Twilight Zone) and Eva Hamilton ( Death Kiss, Black Goat) have formed a wicked partnership to bring fans of the genre the sort of retro content we nostalgic nuggets so desire. And so to boot, have launched an Indiegogo campaign for production funding hinting if the goal is met, a “VERY special tribute to Halloween III” will be made for fans.
Umm. Yes please.
In addition to several films already underway in the MoonCats company lineup that star both Horror alumni actresses’, next year’s slated October release Double Feature contains a double-horror anthology film intercut with vintage-style drive-in advertisements for an aesthetic feel.
Honestly? I’m so in.
Per the Press Release:
THE SHED (2021) and KILLER VIDEO (2022), two short 35mm films both actively in development, will be shot on location in undisclosed rural locations between October of 2021 and March of 2022.
Upon completion, both films will appear in an Anthology Feature film “Double Feature”, constructed for exhibition on genre streaming services and an exclusive festival programming slate.
SYLVIA (2024) continues to actively develop as the company’s initial Feature Presentation, following the story of an aging model who reassumes power by taking over Miami as a legendary Cocaine Smuggler.
MoonCat additionally launches its Production Services Department, offering Promotional Content Services, Concept Packaging and Original Synthwave Licensing to Independent Genre Filmmakers.
Production Executive states: “We are open to working with passionate independent filmmakers with a strong eye for quality, commercial aesthetics and elevated narratives that lend themselves to venues like SXSW and Fantasia. Open to reviewing directorial reels at TheMoonCatPictureCompany@gmail.com”
