‘Bad Girl Boogey’ – Halloween Slasher Movie Acquired by Dark Star Pictures

Filmmaker Alice Maio Mackay (So Vam) is back with new movie Bad Girl Boogey, and The Wrap reports today that Dark Star Pictures has acquired the queer slasher.

Bad Girl Boogey will release on VOD outlets beginning July 4.

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, “Angel, whose mother was brutally murdered one Halloween night, when blood was shed by a deranged killer wearing 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.

Lisa Fanto, Iris Mcerlean, Chris Asimos, Toshiro Glenn, Lewi Dawson, and Kate Bonney star. Bad Girl Boogey also features a voice-over performance by Bill Moseley.

“I am thrilled to be unleashing my sophomore feature Bad Girl Boogey with Dark Star Pictures for its North American release,” Mackay said. “I can’t wait for it to connect with its audience of horror-loving queer misfits who I hope will have as much fun watching it as we had putting it together.”

Bad Girl Boogey is a shock to the system. Writer and director Alice Maio Mackay has masterfully crafted an exciting, visceral slasher film with an important message of identity and bigotry. Her vision is one that will make audiences think, while soaking them in blood and terror,” Dark Star President Michael Repsch said.
