Okay – it’s time to let our baby loose!
After months of build up our scary movie special is finally here – and we’re thrilled to share it with the world!
Can You Survive A Horror Movie premieres on Friday 13th on Chiller at 9pm EST – and we couldn’t be prouder!
If you’re a huge horror movie fan (like me!) this one’s for you. And even if you don’t know your Michael Myers from your Jason Voorhees I just know you’re gonna love our special. We’re one of the picks of the week in Entertainment Weekly and The Huffington Post and Chiller are super stoked for the show and have been running trailers on Syfy, Vh1, FX, USA and many other networks for the last week now!
Okay one more plug… here’s the final trailer for the show – featuring a certain British TV producer in action. We filmed these interview midway through our shoot and let’s just say I need quite a while in make up by this point…
As regular Remote Patrolled readers will know I’ve been super busy these last few months overseeing an upcoming TV special called Can You Survive A Horror Movie, produced by my production company Savannah Media and airing on Chiller TV.
The show is the ultimate survival guide for how to make it through a scary movie in one piece! And now we can unveil the terrific full trailer for the show…
The show is part Mythbusters, part 1,000 Ways To Die and part Fear Factor. We filmed the special at a campground in Northern New Jersey, the actual location where they filmed the original Friday 13th back in 1980. In fact if you’re a fan of the movie you’ll actually recognize some of the iconic locations from the horror classic! I have to say though filming at Camp Crystal Lake in the dead of night was pretty darn freaky…
As regular Remote Patrolled readers will know I’ve been super busy over the last few months working on an upcoming special for Chiller called Can You Survive A Horror Movie?
Well we’re now in the final stages of post-production and I’m excited to be able to unveil some exciting details about the show…
For starters, our premiere date! We’ll be airing on Friday 13th July at 9pm – perfect date right?
Well it gets better…! I can now reveal that we filmed many of our scenes at the real life location where they shot the original Friday 13th movie. Yep, we headed to Northern New Jersey to film at the actual summer camp where the 1980 classic took place. We’re talking hallowed horror movie ground. It was there that we put our three hosts – Anthony Marks, Annie Unnold and Morgan West – through a whole series of stunts designed to test their horror movie survival skills…
Finally I’m thrilled to be able to unveil our first promo for the show, featuring much of the footage we’ve been working on over the last few months. We had a lot of fun putting these scenes together…
Time for a bit of shameless self promotion here at Remote Patrolled.
As you may have noticed my postings have become a tad less frequent over the last couple of months due to the fact that I’ve become extremely busy on the TV production front (as well as managing Angry Trainer Fitness which has soared recently!)
I’m currently Executive Producing a brand new series for A&E set to launch in the Spring – but I’m also thrilled to announce a new show that my production company, Savannah Media, is currently working on (and which was announced in Variety magazine yesterday)
The show’s called Can You Survive A Horror Movie and takes a look at the science behind horror movies – of which I’m a HUGE fan (yes, I have indeed seen every single Friday 13th, Elm Street and Halloween!)
We’re producing the show for Chiller, the horror network who are really ramping up their original production at the moment. Last year the network premiered the zombie movie Remains, with more original films to follow in the new year.
