Concept Trailer: John Skipp’s “THE LONG LAST CALL”
Esteemed author and Fango columnist John Skipp and filmmaker Andrew Kasch have a mind to bring the writer’s strip club-in-havoc tale THE LONG LAST CALL to the big screen. The two have crafted a proof-of-concept clip to capture the warped nature of it all, which you can find below.
In THE LONG LAST CALL, “it’s closing time at a backwoods strip club, somewhere in America. Business as usual, until an elegant stranger comes onto the scene: chumming the waters with a briefcase full of cash, and a dark agenda all his own. Because he is no mere human being. He is a walking repository for all of the anger and hate that men and women feel toward each other. And every scum-soaked dollar he hands out only serves to up the voltage on the war between the sexes. The have and have-nots. The lovers and the haters.”
Kasch and Skipp write, “Because Amazon’s horror book label 47North just re-released John Skipp’s acclaimed novel The Long Last Call in trade paperback, we thought we’d celebrate by unleashing the teaser trailer for the in-development feature film version of this epic titty-bar nightmare. Keep in mind, this is a ‘proof of concept’ sales trailer and has no actual footage from the feature, cuz that doesn’t exist yet. What we shot was 2 minutes of mayhem that capture the vibe of the book, and show how crazy this shit will play onscreen.”
