Summaries

  • After a young girl is found murdered, a group of teens at Payton High must band together to piece together the horrifying travesty. The teens soon discover the mysterious killer is killing only the most popular students in school. As their friends die one-by-one in the most shockingly gruesome ways possible, they realize that being "in" may not get them out...alive.

  • Popularity Killer is our second low budget dark-comedy horror feature. We wanted this film to be a longer short than our previous film, Teddy. Teddy was an independent 14 page horror short that was shot on a budget of $3,000 over three days in a mountain cabin. Popularity Killer is even more ambitious. Popularity Killer is a 30+ page script with five locations and eight major characters. The goal here was to make a smart and bitterly funny horror film about the cliches of high school. With the dark social satire of the script, we believe that we have something special here.

Synopsis

  • Slasher Studios is proud to bring you their second slasher hit. Popularity Killer is a low budget dark-comedy horror short from the studio that brought you "Teddy: It's Gonna Be a Bear". Teddy, Slasher Studios' first short horror film, was an independent 14 page horror short that was shot on Canon 5D with a budget of just $3,000 over three days in a mountain cabin. "Popularity Killer" was far more ambitious in nature. Seven deaths, a budget of just $5,000, and seven days of filming went into the bloody slasher flick.

    With "Popularity Killer", Slasher Studios has created a smart and bitterly funny horror film about the clichés of high school. With the dark social satire of the script (kill or be killed elements of high school), they have devised a horror film that plays homage to both the slasher films of the 1980's as well as the slasher films of the 1990's. Popularity Killer stars Courtney Ellen Bay, Matty Dorschner, Mike Goltz, Jennifer Frey, Hannah Herdt, Dana Michele, Jamie Jo Roen, and Kevin Sommerfield. Directed by Steve Goltz and Written by Kevin Sommerfield.
