With all this Trench excitement around the place, you might think that's the only thing we've got going on, right? WRONG. We're proud to announce that we're developing our second feature film!! It's a modern gothic horror drama, currently titled Inheritance, about an orphaned young woman who inherits the family home she never knew, only to discover that the ghosts who haunt it may not actually be dead...
We're knee deep in writing the script, and are currently looking for financing!

Sub-atomic budgets. Explosive ideas.
Here at Cinema Viscera, we're carving out a reputation for creating dark, delicious, delightful and devious cinematic delights on a microbudget.
Our first ever feature film, Trench, is a modern-day, Melbourne-set, girl-powered, micro-budget, black-and-white comedy-film noir made for next to nothing and hitting Australian screens in 2018. Reclusive writer Becky Holt is being stalked in her own apartment. Struggling comic Sam Slade is being evicted from hers. When Sam decides to bluff her way to playing detective for cash, these two oddballs are thrown together to crack the case... if they don't get themselves killed first! To find out more, check out:

How did we get the confidence to get Trench up and running so quickly?
We are indebted to the Lean Filmmaking Accelerator Program, run by the lovely sibling duo of Kylie and David Eddy, which guided us through an accelerated pre-production period.
As part of this process, we wrote the first draft of the film in three weeks, and shot a "rough draft" version of the full feature (currently 83 minutes!) in two days -- as a valuable tool to see how the script walks and talks, and to gain some targeted prospective audience feedback for the next draft of the film. Then, we made some edits on the script, did some reshoots, and tested it again!

Our last short film, Cigarette, a dark "cautionary fable" set among the wreckage of modern sexual relations, made for just AU$3,000, premiered at Australia's premier genre film festival, Monster Fest, and screened at Australia's best underground film festival, the Sydney Underground Film Festival.
Starring the ace Rebecca Fortuna and Ryan Heath, Cigarette is a cautionary fable from the mind of writer/director/editor Paul Anthony Nelson; a suspense drama played out amongst the wreckage of modern gender relations. When a woman invites a man into her home after a date, she treats him to an impromptu striptease -- but is this a seduction... or an evaluation? And will he fail horribly?
