GIERASCH DIGS INTO AUTOPSY
Busy scriptwriter Adam Gierasch gave Fango a call to share details on AUTOPSY, the script he wrote with longtime partner Jace Anderson and current MORTUARY producer Evan Katz that?s going into production soon. 'It?s a punk-rock horror film,' Gierasch tells us. 'It?s about a group of kids who are at a punk show, and one of them gets pretty badly injured; he gets a bottle cracked over his head. His girlfriend is about to call for medical help, but before she can, this ancient 1950s ambulance emerges from out of the fog, and the kid is picked up by these two strange orderlies. The rest of the movie is his girlfriend and group of friends trying to find their injured pal?this leads them to a spooky hospital, and wacky hijinx ensue.'
Not just wacky, but splattery as well. 'This is absolutely, in terms of gore setpieces, the most disturbing stuff we?ve written,' Gierasch says. 'There are a lot of medical procedures gone very, very wrong! This was an idea Evan had been talking to us about collaborating on; he wanted to do a movie about punk rockers in jeopardy. I came up with the hospital idea, he wrote the first draft and then Jace and I rewrote it.' Stay tuned for more details.
