Splatterday Special: Scooter [Film]

 

Welcome to Day 12 of Trainwreck’d Society’s Annual Month of Horror Showcase! We have a fully loaded month of all things horror for you fine folks! October is our favorite month for this very reason, and we are so excited to share 31 full days of film showcases and interviews with some of the finest folks from the world of horror, just as we have been doing for the last 6 years. What started as a simple 5 day showcase, has now blossomed into a full blown month long event. You’re going to love this! Enjoy!

Synopsis:

“The Three Amigoes are life-long best friends and partners in crime. They became internet famous after their YouTube channel went viral. Each episode of their antics has them undertaking some ridiculous challenge. From racing cars to tricycles and from the waters of the South Atlantic to the bottom of a swimming pool, there’s no challenge too stupid. Like a pack of cats, they always land on their feet.
The Amigoes latest challenge is to ride scooters from Miami to New Orleans. Each person has $1000 to get a scooter, pay for gas, food, and lodging. After they select their vehicles and pack their bags, it’s time to hit the road. They soon find that their 50CC scooters are no match of I-95, and they retreat to the side roads to continue their epic 900 mile journey. While the road is smoother, the trip gets a lot bumpier. One of the scooters break down, the friends start to fight amongst each other, and their troubles reach a climax when they witness and video a murder.

Stuck in rural Florida with two working scooters, they have little hope of escape, and the killer is hot on their trail. What was once a leisurely trip becomes a fight for survival. They end up captured, tortured, and it’s clear they won’t all survive. When those who are sworn to protect you are the problem, where do you turn? Will they all die in a small backwater town, or can they once again defy the odds and come out alive?” – October Coast PR

Today we are celebrating a film that is truly and experience, more than it is a film. It is a brilliant expose on what the future could hold. It’s some beautiful irony that it is the 20 year anniversary of the release of the first major blockbuster “found footage” film (The Blair Witch Project) and that now a film like Scooter is available to showcase how far we have advanced technologically ever since the year we thought the world was going to collapse as we entered a new millennium. And while some old geezers like myself to relish in the past at times, it is undeniable just what can be accomplished with such great ease these days. And it’s also undeniable to the natural art of genuinely good storytelling has never subsided, which is further proven in the incredibly unique story that is Scooter. Utilizing the technology that we only once imagined in science fiction to be possible, this film tells a very dark and highly stylized story that you are simply going to love!
