THIS is the cinema of which we need more. Future Criterion Collection offering Killer Unicorn is a low-budget but high-glamour look at what would happen if you made I Know What You Did Last Summer with thespian drag queens, enema parties, and nary a hint of that busted Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Here’s the synopsis via Dread Central:
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 events! While the night starts out fun, it quickly takes a turn when Danny is attacked by a stranger. He survives, but now a year later, Danny decides to give his social life a second chance. Wrong choice – as Danny and everyone else who helped him that night, are in danger. A man wearing a unicorn mask is killing off Brooklyn, one queen at a time, and he won’t stop until he has his revenge.
Killing off Brooklyn? Can’t that murderous unicorn start with the hipsters first? Here’s Killer Unicorn screenwriter José D. Álvarez’s elevator pitch for the movie.
Writer Alvarez has talked about the film at several major magazines. At Billboard, he described the film as: “Like John Waters topping John Carpenter, so equal parts scary, campy and queer.”
If they can get all of that on the poster, this is going to be bigger than Marvel.
