Local Melbournian film-makers Damien E. Lipp and Dale Alexander are working on their début feature, the documentary style horror film, ‘Beckoning the Butcher’.
The film is currently in the funding stage, up now on the crowd funding site Indie Go Go with 10 days to go and is a great opportunity for film and horror fans to support the local scene.
Check out the teaser below and help these young film-makers reach their goal!
Chris Shaw was an up and coming internet sensation. In his videos he performed rituals he found on the web, testing their legitimacy in summoning spirits. His last video never got to be broadcast – until now.
Chris films everything as he, his girlfriend Tara and their friends Brent, Lorraine and Nicole travel to Brent’s holiday house nestled in the vast, isolated plains of rural Victoria. Once they arrive they prepare and perform the latest ritual Beckoning the Butcher, a mysterious invocation Chris found online, designed to entice a paranormal entity into this world.
All who took part in the ritual that night went missing without a trace. The only clue for investigators was the found footage contained on Chris’s camera. Unfortunately for all involved, the footage itself seemed to pose more questions than to provide answers.
Using interviews from family members, detectives and psychics, along with Chris’s footage, this film aims to piece together the events of that fateful night and determine how the players vanished.

The best show on C31 and one of the best movie shows ever, The Bazura Project is back-ish. Well Lee and Shannon are back but this time teaming up with C31’s The Breakfast Show host Emma Race and 2006 Class Clowns winner Adam Knox for the Election 2007: Countdown to a Letdown. After a couple of years using their razor sharp (or at least blunt but jagged and rusty) wit to attack the fools who dare to entertain us with moving pictures, the guys are now going one on however many candidates there are and taking on the 2007 election.
ELECTION 2007: COUNTDOWN TO A LETDOWN is the funniest election coverage you’re likely to see. Except for The Chaser. And Micallef will probably do something really good. And Ray Martin always cracks us up. But if you discount them, we’re the ones you’re going to want to watch. Join Adam Knox, Shannon Marinko, Emma Race and Lee Zachariah on Election Eve (Friday the 23rd of November) for our countdown… to a letdown.
