Who knew our little, $100 horror film would make such an impact on the Underground Horror Circuit? Jumping to over 23,000 views since April of 2015, our original film LOON, is still gaining attention in more ways than one. In response to this, and in an effort to get our 'Cinematic Universe' off the ground, we are preparing to dive head into principle photography on LOON 2 (a.k.a LOONS) in December 2015!
This time around, we have a bit more $$$ to spend on the project. Whereas we had roughly $100 last time, we have about $101 this time around (lulz). Unlike LOON, LOONS will be presented as a more refined product. What does this mean, you ask? Well, the overall film will be far more 'polished' than the first. Less grain, better lighting, better camera setups and movements, SFX; THE WORKS! The film, in an effort to keep ties with some of it's '80s slasher originals - and will REMAIN in STEREO SOUND - and will not be mixed in Surround.
The film will not be presented as a direct, traditional sequel, but more or less as a 'Spiritual Sequel', where the events of Loon did happen for sure, but the scope of attention to this film will make the project appear more as a 'soft reboot' of sorts. This is a similar situation to Aliens, The Dark Knight, The Devil's Rejects, etc. Those were all sequels, as well, but they didn't require the audience to view, or even know about the initial film for them to enjoy the movie. This notion will give us more of a clean slate and more of an official, 'mainstream'-esque jump-off for THE DECOMPOSING PICTURES CINEMATIC UNIVERSE!
LOONS will be released October 31, 2016 - whether it be in similar fashion to Loon or a wider release! Stay tuned! In the meantime, keep in mind that LOONS is still casting and scouting locations, so if you live in the Brevard County, Florida and want to contribute to the production in any way, please contact me directly on Facebook.
