From the hilariously dark mind of BAFTA-nominee Nat Luurtsema, comes the comedy/horror Murder Fans…
Seven true crime fans throw a Divorce Party for their heartbroken friend, Max, in a serial killer’s house. Ted Brockles’ wife left him and, paranoid his three daughters would do the same, he began poisoning them, trapping them in illness and bodies too weak to fight back. Not the best party venue for a woman who is harassing her ex-wife. The friends’ excitement at seeing ghosts turns to real fear as Max becomes possessed by the uxorious spirit of Brockles.
In 2018, the script beat 3500 entries to the Channel 4 4screenwriting scheme to get longlisted for interview, likewise with iFeatures. The film then went on to showcase at Film London’s Production Finance Market.
