The Drag Queen horror film KILLER UNICORN has just been acquired by distribution house Indican Pictures, at the Cannes Film Festival.
Part comedy and all party, KILLER UNICORN is the latest film from long time director Drew Bolton and writer Jose D. Alvarez.
Set in the underground dance scene of Brooklyn, New York, this film brings a serial killer into the mix. As the local Drag Queens are targeted, survivors must use their special, very unique skills to save themselves and track down this stalker. KILLER UNICORN will be in theatres this month, across the United States.
Writer Alvarez has talked about the film at several major magazines. At Billboard, Alvarez described the film as:
“like John Waters topping John Carpenter, so equal parts scary, campy and queer.”
This are two filmmaking icons that are hard to best. The writer also mentions that there are hidden references in the film:
“so you will get some I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream and Halloween.”
All of these films will combine with a colourful Brooklyn nightlife when the film is released theatrically on 14th June.
On this date, Indican Pictures will show the film from coast-to-coast. The initial theatrical release will take place in: New York City, Houston and Los Angeles. This first showing will be followed by other cities, with KILLER UNICORN to show on DVD and Digital platforms 9th July. For now, horror fans can view some of many over-the-top characters from the film, including Lady Havok, Isis Vermouth and Latrice Royale, before the film’s wide release, next week!
