Here I have a trailer for an upcoming indie horror comedy satire film titled Biscuit. The movie is about a psychopath who roams the streets of New York City and murders straight white men and nobody cares.
The film comes from the filmmaker. onur tukel (Catfight, Summer of Blood, Applesauce, The Misogynists), and is a slasher movie with political discourse. The movies that Tukel makes are full of comments, and there is no doubt that this one is going to arouse people’s interest.
The director spoke about the film, saying that it was inspired by classic slasher movies from the 1980s, saying, “In a slasher movie, the villain murders someone every eight or nine minutes and there is a climax where the killer is revealed and /or sent.” He went on to explain that other inspirations include Spike Lee’s Summer of Sam because “David Berkowitz’s murders take place in the background as multiple narratives unfold during the film.”
Bloody-Disgusting says that “Tukel wants to make sure it’s 100% clear that Poundcake is satire.” He said: “It’s pretty obvious what he’s lampooning.” Here’s the full synopsis:
In New York City, however, nothing is indescribable. Plenty of people in the bustling metropolis have something to say about it, especially podcasters, who use their platforms to weigh in on the serial killer and his victims. Some think that the victims are getting what they deserve. Aren’t straight white men responsible for most of the world’s problems? They run Fortune 500 companies that pollute the environment. They have led countries that have started devastating wars. They have built a system of capitalism that is racist and oppressive.
Some believe that the serial killer is not real and that the media has fabricated the murders to gain sympathy from white people. Also, who owns most of the corporate newspapers and media? It is not the blacks, the Asians or the Arabs. And since people are finally holding straight white men responsible for centuries of oppression, this would be the perfect excuse for them to play the victim.
Some think it’s all a fucking joke. A serial killer targeting straight white men? Who cares? It was about time the shoe was on the other foot.
But this is the kind of negativity that the serial killer feeds on. It makes it stronger. The more vitriol there is towards straight white men, the more bloodthirsty it becomes. If the people of New York don’t let go of their bitterness and adopt a more positive mindset, they may never apprehend the killer, dubbed ‘Poundcake!’ by cynics.
Still, life goes on. And in New York, people are dealing with their own dramas. As Poundcake continues to slaughter him, there are millions of people just trying to get through another day. In New York, however, everything is connected. Straight white men may be the only ones losing their lives, but everyone else is losing their humanity.”
Tukel also stars in the film and is joined by ron brice, Eva Dorrepaal, Pia Paez, Zarius Le Grand, and others. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think.
