Adam Green Needs Your Help to Resurrect 'Scary Sleepover'

Writer/director Adam Green is known for films like Chillerama, Frozen, Grace and of course, the Hatchet series, but some of his most personal work comes in the form of his shorts and original series. One of his more intimate original series was called Scary Sleepover.

Adam would invite guests to have a sleepover and they would get up to silly antics that made the audience laugh, but they would also have serious discussions about careers and real fears. Some of his past guests include Slash, Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, the late Sid Haig and many more.

The series ran from 2015 to 2017 with full length episodes running on ariescope.com and shorter versions being posted to the Ariescope YouTube channel.

To the delight of Sleepover fans, Green has decided to resurrect the series. Unlike other creators, he is not rebooting it for selfish reasons. He decided to bring it back after reading an article by a fan describing how Adam and the series helped him through depression. The article is called “Adam Green Saved My Life” and was posted on NightmareNostalgia.com by Landon Evanson (read Landon’s incredible article HERE). Two months after reading the article, Green lost colleague and friend Sid Haig.

Your help is needed to bring back Scary Sleepover. The series was free for fans to watch, and that can get pretty pricey; instead of charging fans per episode, Green has launched an Indiegogo campaign. He has set a budget of $5,000 per episode, so every $5,000 raised is a new episode.

Review: Victor Crowley is Back & Better Than Ever

Adam Green surprised fans at the Hatchet 10th Anniversary celebration with the announcement and screening of his new gore baby, ‘Victor Crowley’. After the announcement, Green launched a theater tour of the film and it garnered a positive fan response. Victor is definitely back and better than ever.

Like the previous Hatchet films, Victor Crowley has its share of cameos, starting with one not even a half hour in. The core cast is the best one yet, Kane Hodder (Hatchet), Perry Shen (Hatchet), Laura Ortiz (Holliston), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Dave Sheridan (A Haunted House), Brian Quinn (Impractical Jokers) and Krystal Joy Brown (Castle).

Most of those names are tied to campy roles, and are best known for their humor, and because of this, not only is this the goriest Hatchet film to date, it is also the funniest. There are times that you will feel like a complete asshole for laughing because Victor is ripping someone apart but someone (usually Dillon played by Dave Sheridan) says something completely unfitting (in a good way) to the situation.┬áRose, played by Laura Ortiz, may be the best new character. She’s sassy, funny and totally adorable (she’s kind of a badass too).

If you’re into campy gorefests that pay homage to the slasher films of the 80s, Victor Crowley is for you. Splatter and body parts aside (those are awesome too), the film is a lot of fun (in a “should I be laughing at this that guy just got ripped apart…yeah I should” kind of way). Just like a fine wine, Green and the Hatchet franchise are only getting better with time.

If you’re a quitter and turn the movie off when the credits begin to role, you’re going to miss a pretty awesome scene…just saying…hint hint…wink wink.

To quote the great Adam Green and Joe Lynch, this movie is tits.
