Do you like slasher movies? Have you seen a decent British slasher movie recently? No, neither have we, but that could be about to change as a new British movie - Hacked Off - has just been released on a limited edition DVD.
The brainchild of Andrew Weild (Director / DOP / Screenwriter / Editor) and Fraser Barsby (Producer / Screenwriter / Editor and Sound), Hacked Off follows French psycho-killer Jacques Sykes after he escapes from a mental asylum in the guise of his first victim, a telephone repairman. Not too surprisingly, there's a cottage nearby with seven ready-made student victims oblivious to the manhunt.
The DVD is available from the official website (www.hacked-off.com) where you can also view an impressive trailer of the film. The first edition DVDs (limited to 1000 copies) are available for £12.99 and include original publicity postcards.
We'll hopefully be reviewing the film on this site very soon.
