Now funding over on Indiegogo with just a few days left, So Vam filmmaker Alice Maio Mackay‘s new movie Bad Girl Boogey recently wrapped production, with the 17-year-old transgender filmmaker now seeking funds to finish post-production on the queer slasher. The project has surpassed its goal amount, with three more days to raise extra funds.
Bad Girl Boogey is said to “take the slasher out of the hands of the Reaganite 80s mentality of punishment and violence and turns it into a powerful and resonant allegory for the struggles of the LGBTQ+ community, and all of those who are hated and outcast.”
In the film, “One Halloween, blood was shed by the wearer of a parasitic mask cursed with black magic and bigotry. Sixteen years later, when Angel’s best friend is slaughtered by a killer with the same mask, they must overcome their personal struggles, fight their fear, and find the masked killer before he, or it, slaughters everyone they hold dear.”
Alice Maio Mackay directs a screenplay co-written by Ben Pahl Robinson and lensed by cinematographer and editor Aaron Shuppan. As the recipient of a George A. Romero Fellowship, Mackay is being mentored by director Jenn Wexler (The Ranger) and has received support from Salem Horror Fest director Kay Lynch as executive producer.
“Alice’s talent would be remarkable for a filmmaker of any age, but considering all that she has accomplished this early in her career, it makes us deeply proud and extremely excited to watch her continue to grow and inspire others,” Lynch said in a statement to BD.
Bad Girl Boogey features a voice-over performance by Bill Moseley.
