Scottish Slasher 'Bridal Fever' Launches Kickstarter Blood (& Guts) Drive
Marital Bliss Turns Bloody in Directorial Debut from Hayley Tinline
Established special effects make-up artist Hayley Tinline seeks support from horror fans for her first gutsy foray into directing. Hayley has produced the effects for a number of recent Scottish indies including cult hit Lord of Tears and upcoming horror The Unkindness of Ravens. Hungry to tell her own stories using her extensive knowledge of practical effects, she is now turning her hand to directing.
Her debut feature Bridal Fever is an ambitious slasher inspired by 70s classics such as Alice Sweet Alice and Black Christmas with a gritty, grindhouse edge. Hayley plans to use her unique practical effects skill set to devise and create some of the most imaginative and horrific cinematic deaths imaginable. The film, set to begin shooting mid-April tells the story of Lisa, a troubled young woman plagued by cruel memories of a monstrous childhood. Now married, Lisa thinks that she's finally escaped the seething rage trapped within her...until the moment she witnesses the love of her life cheating with a naive teenage girl.
