We're not just talking gore here either. The Conjuring films were R rated because of how scary they were. Yes, these are studio films. Just trying to make a point.
Marketing these R-rated films is another beast entirely. Often trailers are cut for as wide an audience as possible, which can hurt the vision of the finished film. Well, the Slasher app has put out a call for "Red Band trailers and beyond" in order to help filmmakers market their films honestly.
Slasher considers themselves a true alternative media solution for horror filmmakers, and wants to support those R-rated movies that sometimes get lost in the shuffle.
"When filmmakers are out marketing their films and get roadblocked by various social networks, it's disheartening," a spokesperson for Slasher said.
This happened to Jen and Sylvia Soska last year, when the filmmakers were locked out of their Twitter account for posting marketing material for their Rabid remake. Shame!
"There is nothing worse than putting your heart and soul into making a movie, and then not being able to advertise it properly due to someone thinking it's not politically correct or some nonsense," the spokesperson said.
"Screw that! Bring out your horror and let us connect you to the world!"
How? Easy! Interested filmmakers can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Yup, it's that simple.
The Slasher app is available now at Apple App Store and Google Play
