Hi.

I’m a bloody idiot.

When Chilli Wright followed me on Twitter, I did the stupid thing of asking if they sent out samples for bloggers. Y’know, pushing my luck and that. Well, they only went and said yes, and sent me some Carolina Reaper Chilli Powder (the hottest in the world) and some Yellow Trinidad Scorpion Moruga pods (the second hottest chillis in the world).

Slasher movies. You know the type. Cute blonde girl runs away from a masked gimmicky murderer. You’re bored of the formula, and have been ever since the 80s, or at best since the mid-90s when there was that ironic revival phase. All those clichés, stupid decisions and macguffins serving to provide lazy set-pieces and half-arsed jump scares. Wouldn’t it be nice if a horror movie went out of its way not to do that, to break the mould and bring life back into what is essentially a genre that has fallen over and twisted its ankle, while running away from some sort of knife wielding metaphor in a metaphorical metaphor mask.

Well, look who it is, Jim Rothman, creator of Scythe, a new ‘realistic’ slasher movie that promises to break genre conventions and return to good old fashioned scares. I sent a bunch of questions his way, and he was kind enough to reply with proper words and not just a GIF of someone doing a rude finger gesture. The Kickstarter for Scythe is well on its way to getting the $50,000 required to fund this independent movie, and a whole host of perks are available to supporters of the project.
