So it released yesterday. I’ll get my shilling out of the way immediately…
And now back to discussing Barbatachtian 3, which is my fourth film AND the third entry in the Barbatachtian series. I mean, third main entry – over on Indie Nation Network (https://inationnetwork.com/) you can find a spin-off/prequel of sorts:
So yeah, it’s a trilogy.
I mean I’m planning to make them indefinitely, but the Chester Zerum story is done with the third entry. I’m sure a lot of people will say that the use of the word ‘story’ doesn’t add up, given the continuity errors, retcons, and fact that we’re not even following the same Chester anymore. To which I’d argue, if you’re still watching this schlock by the third entry then really, you must already know it’s an experiment in surreal, abstract, illogical horror more than anything.
It’s also the end of an era, of sorts.
I am… for lack of a better phrase… not an actor. I mean I enjoy doing it in part, but at heart I’m a director and I feel that the films are hamstrung by me being the only visible actor. So the next entries are telling a different story and, in point of fact, the next one is going in a vastly different direction, as shown by the poster below.
I will say that I am proud of these films.
That may seem a weird thing to say given the films as they are, but I put a lot of myself into these and went from a guy who never made a film to a guy who created his own insane horror franchise; a British horror franchise no less. And managed to get it on two streaming sites and an online video rental store… which is still fucking surreal to be honest.
Of course I’m also very unsatisfied, and now my goals are shifting to more ambitious levels.
So yeah, I guess all that’s left to do is IMPLORE YOU TO BUY THE FILM BUY THE FILMS I NEED MONEY BUY THE GOD-DAMN FILMS…
