Surprise New Genre Feature ‘AMAZON HOT BOX’ Completed and Available for Pre-Order, Featuring Impressive Line Up of Talent In Front of and Behind the Camera.
Writer and director James Bickert (FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS) has teamed up with genre filmmaker Brian K. Williams (SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE) to announce the surprise completion of their latest film, AMAZON HOT BOX, and genre fans can pre-order the film today!
Principal photography took place in the fall of 2017 in Atlanta and the film boasts an impressive cast and one hell of an entertaining synopsis. Starring Ellie Church (INTERSTELLAR CIVIL WAR), Tristan Risk (AMERICAN MARY), Kelsey Carlisle (HEADLESS), Jordan Phipps (CLOSE CALLS) and Jett Bryant (DEAR GOD NO!), the synopsis reads like this:
An American college student is apprehended during a dissident round-up in the banana republic of Rattica. She is incarcerated into the island penal system overseen by Wardress Von Krupp who is constructing the world’s greatest information extractor. Crocodiles, religious zealots, psychotic inmates and voodoo-based experiments block her every escape. Life is cheap and the jungle explodes in AMAZON HOT BOX.
“Our film is a unique approach to the women in prison genre that combines action, dark comedy, 70s Italian horror and an array of strong female characters. We’ve packed in a lot of entertaining surprises,” notes AMAZON HOT BOX writer, director and co-producer James Bickert.
The film has also taken a unique approach to distribution. Work In Progress LLC, the financer for the film in association with Concord Creative and Generativity Productions, is offering pre-orders of exclusive autographed media and other items associated with the film ahead of the AMAZON HOT BOX commercial release date scheduled for July 2018.
“We’re experimenting with a new business model,” Bickert explains, “instead of building a buzz over the course of a year, we wanted to create a scenario where genre fans could have immediate access to the completed film upon learning of the trailer, cast and poster.”
Brian K. Williams added, “From the conversations we’ve had with genre fans on the convention/festival circuit, we are hopeful that many will find the instant gratification refreshing. Rather than having to wait around for a year or more to see the film, they can make a purchase the second they learn of its existence.”
