Whats happens when you have Six Hot Chicks In A Warehouse? ( @sixhotchicks ) #supportindiefilm

I had to look up online when it was the Kickstarter for Six Hot Chicks In A Warehouse was running, I remember seeing the updates for the project and then when the crowdfunding campaign launched, I donated some money towards it. It wasn’t a huge sum that I could afford but in my time I have donated to only around 4 or 5 fundraising campaigns and always chose the ones I donated to, very wisely (because sadly I dont have unlimited funds to chuck around) Six Hot Chicks In A Warehouse was one of them. I thought the premise looked fun and I loved the grindhouse style title as well as the teaser art for the film, and finally I recognised quite a few of the names that appeared on the cast list.

Fast forward to late 2017 and I have finally seen the completed film and you know what. Im so glad I donated money towards it. Not that my donation made or would have broken the film being a thing, but I like to think that in a small part. I did help. I surely dont need to go into what the film is about do i? Okay I will. When Adrian, a photographer puts together an indoor photo shoot with six photo models , we just know that something will turn strange and all is not well when you close the warehouse door and dim the lights. You know what. I was right, there is more to Adrian than  just being a run of the mill photographer.

The film opens with Mira (played by the wonderful Jessica Messenger) who is attempting to sneak off for a day or two to take part in the photo shoot without her step-father Liam (played by Max Rudd) finding out, and after a quick run in with her sister Cassie (played by Chloe Toy) Mira manages to find herself at what should be just a simple and easy cash for photo session and the rest you’ll discover when you watch the film for yourself but what I will say is that I really enjoyed this film which took me back to the time of such films as Hobo With A Shotgun, Planet Terror and the other grindhouse style films that returned to our screens a few years ago, some might find it very exploitative (but its meant to be)  with its super sexy costume design and cast, and at times I wondered if it was natural for my eyes to be bulging out of their sockets with the visual style of the film.  I also felt rather voyeuristic but that has to be some of the point with a film called Six Hot Chicks In A Warehouse, which wonderfully homages the ‘grindhouse’ genre. and anyone who has seen a grindhouse film, knows that they are meant to be OTT and to entice the audience into looking longer than perhaps they should as scenes of gore or beauty.  The cast are fantastic in this film and with talent such as Jessica Messenger (Devils Tower, Wasteland), Sabine Crossen ( TV;s Rosermarys Baby, Lord Of The Rings), Jade Wallis ( Blaze Of Glory), and Emma Lock (The Human Centipede 2) ,You just know that you’ll be getting a wonderful piece of entertainment that I do hope takes hold of the public and the film becomes one of those often revisited films when you just need something fun and a bit bonkers to display on your TV screens.

Among the may great things in this film is a wonderful tone change at one point, when the film fades to black, and then brings us back into the film. This is the moment when things get dangerous for the characters, and dangerous they are. The cast are great and each character has their own quirks to them and so it does make it really hard to pick a favourite. I think they are all great and are all needed to help make this film the fun rollercoaster horror film with a tongue in cheeky comedy angle as much fun as it is. Some might describe this film as a ‘guilty pleasure’ but hell I dont feel guilty about enjoying watching the film and am so glad that it will soon be out there for everyone to see. The film also begins with a wonderful musical score and with the instrumental side of things by James Rogers and songs by Fallz, I think I will have to track down the soundtrack for this film to place on my Ipod. Great work!

For those who might think ‘hmm this film isn’t politically correct’ well heres a statement from the films director.

From the moment we created the absolutely bizarre concept of SHCIAW it quickly became obvious to me that this film was one which grabbed attention both positive and negative. I’ll be honest, being quite a shy character myself the prospect of directing this script terrified me. The title is the equivalent to running down the high street shouting out a swear word as loud as your lungs will allow. 

I can’t stop people making assumptions however I can work on the fact that this is an incredibly self aware film, at times making fun of the genre we sit alongside. I think the best way to describe the film is a chick flick crossed with a horror movie which is marketed at men.

I take great pride in that I have primarily always been a director who catches drama and emotion within a film. Something which is sorely missed with a lot of genre films where a number of scantily clad victims are lined up and taken down one by one. This is different, each character is exactly that.. a character and i want the audience to laugh and scream with what happens during the course of the movie.  – Director Simon Edwards

Please do checkout the film Six Hot Chicks In A Warehouse when you can and my utmost thanks to the cast and crew for putting together the film.  I do plan on getting some of the cast and drew on future podcast episodes including director Simon Edwards and I cant wait to hear more about the film but also its production. I remember last year at the Derby Film Festival, there I was hanging around in the coffee bar, chatting with Liam Regan (My Blood Banjo) and John Shelton ( The Life Of Esme) and in walked Jessica Messenger. We exchanged hellos but I kinda wish there and then I had arranged some podcast chats about her career, But I know that that will happen one day and I will quiz her on films such as Devils Tower and of course Six Hot Chicks In A Warehouse.
