TrashHouse hits Amazon Prime!

And here’s where it all started.

Back in the first few weeks of 2004, we rented a warehouse in Shoeburyness and shot an insanely ambitious locked-house horror movie on cheaply built sets that still had the paint drying on them. It was an insane learning curve, back from the days when digital filmmaking was fraught with difficulties and precious few routes through which to get assistance. We laughed, we cried, we made a load of mistakes and got a certain number of things right.

The result was TrashHouse, a cheerfully odd midnight movie which a certain section of the cult movie audience still hold in a lot of affection. A bunch more people absolutely hated it, of course, but if it was designed for a mass audience it would scarcely be a cult movie, would it?

When I wrote the first few lines of the script, I was working in a branch of Blockbuster Video (remember them?) in Westcliff. The day the movie came out on DVD, (on a surprisingly wide release for such a small movie), I walked back into that branch and saw a copy on the shelf. If I get ten days that good in my life, I’ll have done alright.

It’s got jokes. It’s got (somewhat rubbish) zombies. It’s got chainsaws. It’s got a weird monologue about a man who thinks he’s a dolphin. It’s got three seconds of gratuitous nudity. It’s got Gary Delaney, who’s now one of the UK’s best comics and is on Mock the Week all the time. It’s got a sequence in black and white, with a laugh track. It’s got the amazing Amber Moelter. It’s got some appalling CGI that looked iffy even in 2004. It’s got practical blood splashing up the walls.

It’s got a whole load of love and good intentions bubbling in its crazy soul.

It’s on Amazon Prime, free for subscribers, right now. So please go and watch it if it sounds like something you’d enjoy.

Oh, and it’s got this kick-ass new artwork from the mighty Paul Cousins.

I made TrashHouse, and my conscience is clear.

 

Hellbride hits Amazon Prime!

With our lovely new artwork courtesy of the fantastic Paul Cousins, our much-loved horror romcom Hellbride has hit Amazon Prime this week. Subscribers can check the movie out for FREE as part of their subscription, and non-subscribers can rent on buy.

We’ve got a lot of love for this film. It was the second movie shot under the Jinx Media banner (back in 2006) and is the sort of film that could only ever be made as an independent.  Fire up your Amazon Prime app and stick ‘Hellbride’ into the search field to check out our unique little supernatural stew of brides and bloodshed. We’ve got a script for a killer sequel which we’d dearly love to put into production next year, but it all depends on how the VOD release goes.

So, please, go watch it. Buy it. Rent it. Share it.

Consider this your wedding invitation.
