2014 USC film graduates Powell Robinson and Patrick R. Young have just completed their first horror feature, BASTARD. The pair co-directed a script written by Young. Lauren Bates produced the film under her Bloody Lip Productions tag.
“BASTARD follows newlywed, hitch-hiking serial killers, a brother and sister on the run, and a suicidal, alcoholic cop as they get caught in an increasingly bizarre series of murders committed by a masked killer near a mountain-town bed and breakfast.”
The film, infused with the blood of cult slasher films like The Burning and Halloween, includes a throwback retro score, all practical effects, and stars genre veterans Rebekah Kennedy (Season of the Witch/House Hunting) and Tonya Kay (Raze/Dark Space). Newcomers Ellis Hooper, Dan Creed, Will Tranfo, and Burt Culver (Starry Eyes) fill out the rest of the chopping order.
An excerpt of the score by Kyle Hnedak is below:
The film will enter the sales game under Robinson and Young’s production company name BIG BAD FILM.
