Calum Waddell’s SLICE AND DICE: THE SLASHER FILM FOREVER, a
documentary about murder and madmen in the movies, has already made waves
overseas and makes its Stateside premiere this weekend. Read on for the info
and exclusive word on what to expect on the eventual disc release.
Packed with on-camera interviews with filmmakers including
Tobe Hooper (pictured), Tom Holland, Mick Garris, Christopher Smith, Scott
Spiegel, Eduardo Sánchez, Patrick Lussier and many others, SLICE AND DICE
(which we first covered here)
was produced by Waddell and Naomi Holwill (who also shot and edited). Its U.S.
premiere takes place this Sunday, December 2 at the Roxie Theatre in San
Francisco as part of the Another Hole in the Head Film Festival. “Co-producer Joe Venegas will
be there to introduce the screening,” Waddell tells us. “We’re also going to be
playing Fantasporto next year, which we’re excited about, and we just won the
award for Best Documentary at the annual Horrorfest bash in South Africa.
“We need to stress,” he adds, “that our eventual DVD
release, which takes place in the UK on March 11, 2013, will feature different
clips from those in the cut currently doing the festival circuit. So if you
want to see the ‘director's cut,’ so to speak, you need to catch SLICE AND DICE
at one of its big-screen showings.”
And if you do catch it at one of those screenings, Waddell
promises that the two-DVD release, from Britain’s 88 Films, will still be well
worth a purchase. “It will be a special edition,” he reveals. “The second disc
will feature a ton of classic slasher trailers, and the first will include
outtakes, including great stuff such as J.S. Cardone discussing his cult
classic THE SLAYER in greater detail, an audio commentary I’ve recorded with
Naomi and more. We want this to be a really special edition.”
Waddell and Holwill, who comprise High Rising Productions,
have another horror documentary in the works as well; more on that one very
shortly! See SLICE AND DICE’s trailer (with some not-safe-for-work images and
