Hey Everyone,

I write to announce the release on DVD of my new gay-themed, campy slasher "Skull & Bones" (USA, 2007, 73 minutes). The tagline "A Tale of Homo-cidal Mania" sums up my original and darkly humorous take on a traditional genre. Allow me to highlight other key features of the film:

"Skull & Bones" is controversial, nasty, and extreme.

Audience members at private New York screenings have described the film as "twisted," "disturbing," and "subversive," but also "hilarious" and "hot."

FilmThreat.com calls it "unnerving . . . fantasy wish-fulfillment for truly disturbed homosexuals."

“Skull & Bones” receives 4 stars (out of 5) from The Coroner’s Report, which calls the film “a worthy introduction for writer and director T.S. Slaughter,” adding: “it features intelligence, originality and creativity rarely seen in the overflowing amount of horror films being released today. It also defies political correctness in a time in which that can be a liability. Expect nightmares for months to come!"

My influences include early Wes Craven and John Waters, Tobe Hooper, Rob Zombie, and Italian horror (Argento, Bava, Fulci, Deodato, Lenzi).

Multiple-award-winning Executive Editor Spencer Schilly also edited RuPaul's "jaw-droppingly crude" new comedy Starrbooty, which has made the rounds at NewFest, Frameline, Outfest, and PIGLFF, among other gay film festivals.

All the music in the film is performed by the filmmakers and their associates--and most of it is brand new. In fact, much of the music was composed specifically for "Skull & Bones," notably the punk songs you'll hear. Some, though, comes with permission from a new Swedish Hip-hop CD.

The baroque music you hear in various scenes features the haunting bass stringed instrument the viola da gamba playing funeral and other elegiac music composed around 1700 at the court of Louis XIV. On other occasions the viola da gamba teams up with baroque violin and harpsichord.

The snakes and tarantula used in the final torture sequence are real. The yellow snake with the red eyes is a ten-foot Albino Burmese python; the others are eight-foot Brazilian carpet snakes and a baby boa constrictor.

The DVD is available both online and at selected retail outlets in New York City.

Sincerely, T.S. Slaughter, writer/director

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
