Sick Bunny Pictures.
Sick Bunny Pictures is a micro budget film company from Nottingham, England founded by brothers Nikki and Jason Chatwin. They focus on horror and exploitation movies, and the occasional music video. Nikki (writer, director, camera operator) has a background in art and film, while Jason (camera operator, editor) has a background in music.
Sick Bunny's major influences in film are low budget horror/exploitation/giallo movies from the sixties, seventies and eighties such as Halloween, Friday the 13th, The Burning, Blood and Black Lace, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blood Feast, but also more modern/extreme films such as The August Underground Trilogy and A Serbian Film.
As fellow horror fanatics, they set out to bring good, fun low budget horror films to the very loyal horror community. They also listen to their fans, and bring them the movies they want to see.
The future of Sick Bunny Pictures sees the release of 15-15-08 at the end of April, which is the first in a trilogy of found footage slasher movies. They are also working on some more sicker/gorier movies, such as a controversial Christmas themed slasher called Tinsel Rape, and a slasher/torture film called Tools of the Trade, which is a development of a previous short they shot that got a great response. They are also working on videos for local rock/metal bands.
Keep your eyes out for this company in the future, and lets hope they make the UK horror scene a trendsetter in sickness and depravity.
