Peelers is an upcoming horror film being locally distributed and promoted. It’s a movie in the style of the Evil Dead series and is looking for a comic illustrator to help create a tie-in comic to promote the film.
About the Film
Peelers takes place on the closing night of a small town strip club when a group of unwanted guests arrive and all hell breaks loose. Club owner and ex-ball player, Blue Jean Douglas, is the heroine who rises to the task of protecting both her girls and her bar from psychopathic infected killers who will stop at nothing to slaughter everyone.
This relentless horror feature has been described as “Rodriguez meets Tarantino” and “Not just a great indie film, but destined to be one of the funnest films of 2016.” Currently riding a world tour of film festivals, Peelers has won Best Feature Film at Shock Stock Film Festival, Best Horror Feature at Indie Gathering International Film Festival, and Feature Film 2016 at Shock & Gore Film Festival. It has also been nominated for several awards including Best Actress and Best Actor at British Columbia’s Leo Awards and Best Horror Feature at Palm Beach International Film Festival. Peelers will have its International Premiere at the 36th Annual FantaFestival in Italy, followed by its special screening at the top horror festival in the world, Sitges Film Festival in Spain.
Peelers will be premiering in theatres across Canada in January, 2017, and coinciding with that will be a limited edition printed run of a Peelers comic book distributed to 20 comic book stores across Canada to coincide with the markets in which PEELERS will screen theatrically. The comic book will also be available online for download on ComiXology.
The comic will be 10-20 page, with each page 6.625″ x 10.25″. The artist will be paid for his or her work. Work on the comic will start October 1 and it will be sent off to the printers December 15 so that it can be launched with the film premiere opening in January, 2017.
