THE STORY

You’ve seen one slasher movie, you’ve seen them all, right? Wrong! The makers of the forthcoming UK indie film The Blade Cuts Deeper are planning to change all that, with a fresh and fearsome take on the genre – with their gore-soaked, giallo-inspired story of a widower out for revenge, against the maker a lurid true-crime webs series who has made a mockery of his wife’s death.

Many people want their five minutes of fame but for some, it comes at the ultimate price – their life!’ Meet John Abbott, narcissistic host of infamous real-crime show Lights, Camera, KILL! Known for its lurid re-enactments of the darkest of trespasses, it has made him rich by exploiting pain and suffering. Yet while Abbott basks shamelessly in the limelight, one victim who lost his pregnant wife to an act of savagery subsequently trivialized by the show has seen enough. Left a broken man, the widower has a burning thirst for revenge following the crass reimagining of his beloved’s brutal murder – and now he wants to make Abbott bleed.

Director - Gene Dolders

Hailing from Liverpool, Gene began his creative career playing bass guitar in the cult hardcore punk band Kids Who Like Ice Cream, but his true passion was always for cinema. After working as a journalist at several film festivals – including multiple editions of Sitges – his start in the industry arrived at the turn of the century as a freelance cameraman in the corporate sector. Gene spent several years honing his craft on commercial shoots in the US, Europe and the Middle East, before a move to the Far East followed in 2006. For the next decade, he lived and worked in various cities such as Daegu, Guangzhou, Macau and Manilla, soaking up the different flavours of cinema on offer while making contacts with, and learning from, people in the business. The Blade Cuts Deeper is his debut feature film.
