The Blood Slaughter Massacre Shorts are a series of Faux Trailers, which are viewed in succession and tell the full story of The Ripper. Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been completed. The stories for 1, 2, and 3 were combined to create the Blood Slaughter Massacre feature length film from Mass Grave Pictures.
After screening the series at a short film competition at the Saturday Nightmares convention in New Jersey, the creator of the NYC Horror Film Festival, the late Michael J Hein, spoke with the creators of the Blood Slaughter Massacre trailers. Telling them how much he enjoyed the trailers, he urged them to do a full narrative feature length film, which then prompted Mass Grave Pictures to go into production on the feature a few months later.
Many of the people featured in the Blood Slaughter Massacre shorts returned to work on the feature length film, but only actress, Danielle Lenore, returned to play the same character.
The first in the series was completed and uploaded to YoutTube in June of 2008, by combining camera test shots, and scenes from a different short film that Mass Grave Pictures began shooting, but never completed.
The film features many of the stereotypical horror scenarios that made films of the 80's so wildly popular. A slaughtered party (A Nightmare On Elm Street 2), the girl chased through the woods (Friday The 13th), the babysitter (Halloween), the girl killed in the shower (Psycho) and the party girl and her boyfriend having sex (April Fools Day).
The filmmakers began production on the film with many of the locations planned. Throughout the course of filming, owners of some of the locations pulled out, and forced production to slow while the producers scouted new locations. Subsequently, the film wrapped in December of 2012, as opposed to the initially planned August 2012.
Marquee Video, a privately owned video store in Queens, NY which opened in the mid-1980's, was the location for the Video Store scene. The store announced in December of 2011 that it was closing it's doors. The crew contacted the owner Rudy May, and he agreed to allow them to film in the store once it was closed. The videotapes seen on the shelves were from the films writers' own personal collection, which had been mostly bought at Marquee Video over the years. While shooting the scene, the owner Rudy stopped in to see how things were going. He began feeling extremely nostalgic seeing the shelves stocked with VHS tapes again, saying the scene looked the same way the store did when he first opened his doors, almost 30 years prior.
The song "Rectify Your Traits," used in the chainsaw sequence, was written and performed by Romeo Penguin. The band features Patrick Devaney (who portrays Captain Bracken) on keyboards, who got the band back together to re-record the song for the films soundtrack. Although the movie never states a specific year that it takes place, the writers approximated the date to be October of 1984. Coincidentally, the same date that Romeo Penguin recorded the original performance of the track.
