Baffling. Absolutely baffling.
Just yesterday we introduced you to a film called Eve by director Brian Metcalf. Sure, in the announcement we noticed some similarities between the project and Tim Seeley's ongoing comic book series "Hack/Slash," but an official synopsis for Eve has surfaced and, quite frankly, it has our jaws on the floor...
The film is set in an alternate, more seedy Los Angeles. After discovering her father was the deadliest serial killer of all time, Evelyn makes the decision to track down every psycho she can get her hands on. But these are no ordinary killers, they have supernatural advantages to them - something she must learn to adapt to. She also must learn as to why they are gathering in this city and what their evil intentions are while having to reconcile with her own past.
Okay, so that's Eve.
For those not familiar with Seeley's "Hack/Slash," the story follows a young woman named Cassie who discovers her mother was a serial killer. Cassie, haunted by the fact that she had to put her own mother down, then sets off to rid the country of slashers, beings with supernatural abilities. A film adaptation is in the works with Todd Lincoln at the helm.
Over the years we've seen two volcano movies, two movies about Mars and two asteroid movies competing for audiences' attention, I suppose there's room for two films about female slasher slayers with similar backstories. Er, right?
