"Witchula," is an international production with MAB Studios in the United States and Silent Studios Productions in Great Britain. The poster was a collaboration between the companies, with both sides working painstakingly to give the fans something to talk about. MAB's Marcus Bradford says, "Our teaser poster went through 22 different designs with 3 original and individual designs to choose. From those 3, only 1 was selected. The 22nd draft is what you see today." And Silent Studios Productions' Jason Wright ("Zombie Playground", "Torture") adds, "Marcus and I have been talking for months about the design of a poster for Witchula. We wanted to give the audience a sneak peek into what Witchula is all about. Witchula is an amazing concept and the design for the poster had to have a wow factor to match this which both Marcus and I believe it now does. We have added elements within the poster like the pentagram and a vampire symbol to show this film is a hybrid and has a lot more to offer
then first meets the eye. The coloring for the poster has been kept to a
dark but mysterious design so to give it more intrigue but at the same time
keeping that unique horror feel to match the films intent."
The poster is fraught with symbolism: The pentagram and the upside down cross are commonplace within the horror genre, but many fans will not recognize the new symbol, the blood dagger, symbolizes the hybrid: witch and vampire. According to Bradford, "The usage of symbols represents power and position. A very cool imagery. After a couple symbols, we decided to go with traditional, ancient, universal symbols which would be recognizable and connect to everyone. Like a cross or any other well-known religious symbol." Producer and longtime horror aficionado John Blythe ("My Amityville Horror", "One Day When the Rains Fell"), says, "I feel Marcus and Jason's creative minds have given, "Witchula," a poster that not only gives the audience a preview of what to
expect from a finished film, but also is a unique homage to the 1970's and 1980's horror films that we all grew up watching and love. I feel that important element is somewhat missing in many of the mainstream horror films we see today because the ad campaign from a marketing standpoint is what really sells to an audience."
"Witchula," combines several sub genres into a project that is sure to delight horror fans.
LOGLINE: A group of college exchange students travel to a small and remote town situated on an exotic island; only to discover they are being hunted down by a powerful witch-vampire "hybrid" that seeks something in their possession.
The film already has horror icons Bill Oberst Jr. ("Take This Lollipop", "Criminal Minds", "Death House") and Eileen Dietz, the iconic demon in the classic film, "The Exorcist," attached along with indie favorite Marilyn Ghigliotti ("Clerks"). Producers promise great announcements in the coming weeks and months.
"Witchula," is also produced by Kirsty Richardson ("Extinction"
