Something wicked this ways comes…something wicked entertaining, that is. From the twisted mind of Andrew Bowser (Monster Machine) comes a brand new spooktacular horror short just in time for Halloween (or Nerdoween if you’re nasty). Made in conjunction with our pals at Scream Factory, Lady Killers took the inspiration behind Kotobukiya’s bishoujo versions of Freddy Krueger and Jason and transformed it into a bonechilling new short film that will have you wondering why no one thought to do this sooner (and whether or not you can really trust anyone in a “sexy” Halloween costume ever again).
Starring Adrianne Curry, Abby Dark-Star, Leanna Vamp, Matt Bennett, and Jason Ritter, Lady Killers asks the long-pondered question of, “What happens when you fall asleep while working at a comic book store?” If you answered, “You get trapped in a haunted mansion with two of the deadliest horror movie villains of all time,” then that’s weirdly prescient of you, but you’re also one hundred percent correct. Plus, thanks to YouTube and Legendary, we were able to film on some seriously scary sets at the YouTube Space LA. This way you also know who to blame when you can’t fall asleep at 2AM because you’re worried about those Kotobukiya statues on your shelf coming to life. But that probably won’t happen to you, right? Right?
