The ‘5 Second Films’ Team Wants You to Fund Their First Full-Length Movie
For the past five years, a group of filmmakers have been making movies for their website 5-Second Films every single weekday, and now they’re looking to make their first full-length movie. The 5-Second Films team, whose shorts have featured comedians like Patton Oswalt, Doug Benson, and Weird Al, put up a Kickstarter today for their feature Dude Bro Party Massacre 3 in an attempt to raise $200,000 to make the ’80s slasher movie-skewering comedy. The movie is based on a 5-second film the group made and later expanded into a fake trailer. See below for a trailer and a longer description of the movie from a group that Patton Oswalt has called his “favorite young filmmakers”:
DUDE BRO PARTY MASSACRE 3 follows BRENT CHIRINO as he enters the oil-misted halls of the DELTA BI THETA fraternity. Brent isn’t just any pledge… he’s a legacy. And it’s a legacy of death. See, Brent is here to solve the mystery of his identical twin brother BROCK’s murder, and he’ll do anything to crack the case… even attempt the frat’s most daring prank of all time.
After the Deltas’ senior prank causes two commercial jets to collide over an orphanage, they’re punished to a weekend at The Old Sorority House by the Lake. But they’re not the only ones there… a mysterious killer named MOTHERFACE lurks nearby. She knows the bros’ deepest fears… and she’s taking advantage of those fears to pick them off, one by shirtless one, in increasingly gory ways. It’s a race against time for Brent to discover the mysteries of his brother’s death before Motherface butchers them all!
But wait, there’s more! DUDE BRO PARTY MASSACRE 3 also features a softcore subplot, spliced in by the Filipino “producers!” Join Chico County’s own OFFICER SMINKLE as he investigates a rash of nudie trading cards featuring all the most bodacious sorority babes at East Chico University! Marvel as this gratuitous subplot somehow intersects with the main story!
…This whole crazy package takes the form of a VHS recording that a Midwestern teenager made from a late-night broadcast in the late 80s … which means you get the film, plus host segments, TV commercial parodies, fake news alerts, and more.
