Indie Slasher DON’T GO ON THE TRAIL Hits DVD on Halloween

The Tampa Bay Newspaper’s TBN Daily has an interview with writer-director Jody S. Dean on his Slasher feature Don’t Go on the Trail, to be released on DVD this coming October 31.

Dean describes his film as “a relentless rape/revenge horror slasher film with suspense, thrills and chills,” adding that “the film is hardcore horror.”

The interviewer, Lee Clark Zumpe, draws comparison with I Spit on Your Grave, but, reading the brief synopsis, I was reminded of Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet. Of course, if you’ve read my review of Blood Night, you know I pretty much hated that film, and I am really no fan of rape/revenge flicks, but I’ll give Dean the benefit of the doubt, given that he lists among his influences Hatchet and Wrong Turn, two movies I loved.

Dean was clearly working with the lowest of low budgets, but that’s often what indie filmmaking is about, so give the trailer a watch and see what you think.

And please do read the full interview on TBN Daily.
