I have yet to watch Suburban Gothic, but I adored director Richard Bates Jr’s debut feature film, Excision (above). The film blended ultra dark comedy, some nasty horror and plenty of sex appeal and nightmarish dreamy images to please the horror community in a big way, so news that Bates Jr has announced his next film should be very welcome.

The film is titled Trash Fire, and is described as a psychological horror comedy being described as “Pyscho meets Harold and Maude.” The cast includes Adrian Grenier (Cecil B. Demented) and Angela Trimbur (The Final Girls).

Trash Fire has just finished filming.

Here is the synopsis:

When an unforeseen event forces Owen (Grenier) to confront the past he’s been running from his whole adult life, he and his girlfriend, Isabel (Trimbur), become entangled in a horrifying web of lies, deceit, and murder. Trash Fire is a deeply, darkly comedic take on the traditional psychological horror film. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll be scarred for life.

Joining Grenier in the film’s cast is Angela Trimbur (The Final Girls), Fionnula Flanagan (The Others), AnnaLynne McCord (“90210”), Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds), Sally Kirkland (JFK), Ray Santiago (“Ash vs. Evil Dead”), Ezra Buzzington (The Hills Have Eyes) and Molly McCook (Excision).

Lawrence Mattis and Matt Smith of Circle of Confusion and David Lawson Jr. of Snowfort Pictures produce the feature, which wrapped principal photography in Los Angeles last week.

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
