Yeah, the title is a tad too long, but at least you know you’re not heading in to a series slasher movie. “I Know How Many Runs You Scored Last Summer” is from the land Down Under, and might just be the greatest cricket-themed slasher movie of all time. Okay, so maybe it’s probably the only cricket-themed slasher movie in, like, EVER. Doesn’t mean that last statement is wrong, though. Anyways, the movie lands on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment June 3 in its native Australia, June 29 in the UK, and June 30 in the States and Canada.
Co-directors Stacey Edmonds and Doug Turner pitch an almighty googly at the slasher movie genre in their debut feature, the cricket-themed horror-comedy I KNOW HOW MANY RUNS YOU SCORED LAST SUMMER, coming to DVD this June.
If you thought The Ashes represented the ultimate grudge match between English and Australian cricketers, then think again. This time the game is not only personal, it’s also deadly and the biggest test is to stay alive. Edmonds and Turner’s hilarious and bloody movie puts an irreverent, parodic spin on slasher conventions as well as introducing a unique serial killer who won’t finish his “over” until all his victims are permanently dismissed.
Full of knowing nods to many slasher classics and featuring bucketloads of blood and gore, I KNOW HOW MANY RUNS YOU SCORED LAST SUMMER is a fun romp that will appeal to cricket fans and horror fans alike (if you’re a cricket-loving horror fan, you’ve just found your perfect movie!). And, paying homage to one of the slasher genre’s most revered conventions, the film also features the most gratuitous, lingering shower scene (starring former Miss Nude Australia, Arianna Starr) to be put on celluloid since Brian De Palma’s “Dressed To Kill”.
I KNOW HOW MANY RUNS YOU SCORED LAST SUMMER (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£12.99) by Anchor Bay Entertainment on 29th June 2009.
Starring Jai Koutrae, Stacey Edmonds, Az Jackson, David Gambin, Ben Paul Owens, Aaron Scully, Alex Sideratos, James Winter, Otto Heutling, and Arianna Starr. Stacey Edmonds and Doug Turner directs.
The trailer has boobies and blood and guts, so no kiddies allowed.
