From the Press Release

Post-production on the independent feature film L.A. Slasher, directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (Girls Against Boys, The Alphabet Killer), has been completed.

It stars Danny Trejo (Machete), Mischa Barton ("The O.C."), Dave Bautista (Riddick), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), Drake Bell ("Drake & Josh"), Brooke Hogan ("Hogan Knows Best"), Tori Black (Not Another Celebrity Movie), and the voice of Andy Dick ("NewsRadio").

A biting, social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous, L.A. Slasher explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent - purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior. Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them.

Says producer Wright, "Celebrity seems to have become a race to see who can push the boundaries of degrading themselves the most and spin it into profit. It seems if you achieve infamy online, regardless of the moral and ethical boundaries crossed, you will be rewarded with a reality TV show, endorsements and branding. Actions that were once considered shameful are now celebrated and rewarded. The L.A. Slasher is here to end that."

Added writer and director Owen, "Hopefully we’ll tap into the zeitgeist of tabloid pop culture with L.A. Slasher. It was my intent to do so, in a fun, super-stylized, neon-lit, hyper-kinetic kind of way, with a character I think people will respond to and really, really like. I had a great time making this film, and I think that audiences, particularly those that find America’s cultural obsession with faux-celebrity as ridiculous as I do, will have a great time watching it."
