Chris Bahr and Joe La Scola have a dream. They want to make an '80s-style slasher movie called FIELD OF SCREAMS, and to help pave the way for their feature they have created a proof-of-concept trailer that can be viewed below.
The story of FIELD OF SCREAMS goes like this:
In Willow’s Grove, baseball is a way of life. After a bad call during a local championship game, a group of rabid parents corner Stumpy the umpire. They get more than they bargained for when the encounter ends in murder. After almost a decade in a psychiatric hospital, Stumpy returns for revenge on the home team. Grab your peanuts and crackerjacks, because this bloodbath is going into extra innings!
Shot in HD, the footage for the trailer was then manipulated to give it the look of an old VHS tape, Bahr and La Scola's attempt to recapture the feel of discovering a movie like THE MUTILATOR on video in the good old days. If they can get the feature version off the ground, the entire film will have this battered VHS look... and, of course, would also be released on VHS.
