About The Event
Drew Bolton 2018, 76 Mins, USA
Danny is your average Brooklyn party boy. This year, he and his friends couldn't be more excited about the upcoming "Brooklyn Annual Enema Party"; one of Brooklyn's biggest party, the event is a place "where you come to get douched and dance". While the night starts out fun, it quickly takes a turn for the worst when Danny is attacked by a stranger. In the end, his fabulous drag queen and queer friends are able to save his life, but not without deadly consequences. A year later, Danny is still going throughout the aftermath of that horrible incident and refuses to go to this year's upcoming "Brooklyn Annual Enema Party", despite the pressure of his close friends Cholata, Collin and Gayson. His friends want Danny to face his fears and go back out into the world. Danny refuses, but when a new boy, PuppyPup, enters his life, Danny decides to give his social life and the Brooklyn nightlife scene a second chance. It isn't until his friends start to disappear and get killed in gruesome ways that Danny realizes that his life, and everyone else who helped him that night, are in danger. A man wearing a unicorn mask is killing off Brooklyn nightlife, one queen at a time, and he won't stop until he has his revenge. #HORROR #AHITH #SFINDIEFEST #KILLERUNICORN #FANTASY #DRAG #LGBT #NEWPEOPLE #SANFRANCISCO #BAYAREA

What films and directors inspired Killer Unicorn?
I always say this film is as if John Waters topped John carpenter. I am a huge Halloween fan (even Season Of The Witch), so you will see some Michael Myer-isms in the movie, as well as references to it. You will also see a big John Waters influence in the way people die in the film, as well as the shock factor his movies usually have. When writing the movie, I was looking for inspiration in the Final Destination series (mainly the first 3), as I wanted people to die in creative ways and not just stab-and-go. So [I'm] building a universe in which people can die in somewhat complicated ways, but not overly mechanic (like the Saw series, for example) was important to me. And for sure Black Christmas and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, [but] the 1974 versions. Oh, and Nightmare On Elm Street 2 just because of how gay it is.
