The Troma-produced, Astron-6 directed
neo-grindhouse masterpiece FATHER’S DAY is officially a hit! Ranking number
four in the Horror section of Amazon, it is behind only pre-orders of the Joss
Whedon blockbuster slasher CABIN IN THE WOODS and sets of television shows THE
WALKING DEAD and GRIMM. Quite a coup for a flick made on 10 grand in cash, and
a million dollars in the sheer will of five filmmakers to just get the thing
done and done well.
Unfortunately, with disagreements between
the filmmakers and the Troma Entertainment, what we are seeing isn’t all it
could have been. For starters, the film included in the Troma special edition
release may not represent the final cut of the film according to Astron-6. Also, notably missing will be footage used
to create the documentary feature NO SLEEP, NO SURRENDER: THE MAKING OF
FATHER’S DAY. The film was apparently offered to Troma for inclusion in the
special edition release but there is a dispute over contractual obligations and
it seems the two couldn’t come to terms.
Astron-6 has posted this video in response
to numerous fan questions about the situation:
The weird saga continues!
However, fans should
not be discouraged from picking this one up. It remains one of the best films
of this year!
