Rough Cut Rough Cut

Jamie Shovlin / United Kingdom / 2013 / 90 min / English

The debut feature by London-based artist Jamie Shovlin, Rough Cut explores the re-making of a 1970s exploitation film that never was.

At its dark heart is Hiker Meat, an archetypal 1970s slasher movie imagined by Shovlin, complete with hitchhiking heroine and a group of teens who disappear one by one. Having created a full screenplay, score and prototype for Hiker Meat, Shovlin filmed the full trailer of a non-existent movie. Rough Cut, a film-within-a-film, serves to both deconstruct and pay homage to the exploitation style.

»The thing I like about exploitation films is not really their subject matter, it’s that at a certain point in time people got together and made them with extremely limited means. They actually had the drive to make The Sinful Dwarf (1973), a terrible, terrible film, or Godmonster of Indian Flats (1973). It’s crazy but I’m really happy there are people that want to make things like that exist.« (Jamie Shovlin)
