Cool Horror Videos: Field of Screams proof of concept trailer

04.25.2016by: Cody Hamman

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.

Check out the FIELD OF SCREAMS trailer below and bask in its old school glory:

Billy Club is a movie that already exists. And, Field of Screams resembles Billy Club a bit too closely. The killer looks especially like Billy, as does his "morningstar" bat. He has nearly the exact same motive too. I shall grant that Field of Screams has some creative kills that were not used in Billy Club. However, I cannot support this proposed movie.

Yes please

I usually get tired of these faux-80s movies/trailers because I just never buy them, but this one is rather convincing. I'd watch a feature of this in a heartbeat. (Although I request a scene where someone says, "Play ball!" and gets a testicle thrown at them.
