Unfortunate News For Fellow Fans Of The Award-Winning “Bloody Cuts” UK Short Horror Film Series

Well, we went to the official site for Bloody Cuts and got a sinking feeling when THIS was the first video that greeted us:

So we looked and found the Bloody Cuts creators had posted this official announcement on their blog on Wednesday the 11th. We cut and pasted it; if anyone involved with Bloody Cuts isn’t comfortable with this, please drop Horror Boom a line (or even a comment; you were incredibly polite and thanked us when we did a piece on the brilliant short “Dead Man’s Lake”) and we’ll take it down and either post something else you prepared or simply a link to the blog. Anyway, here’s the announcement that gave us the blues:

Dear fans of Bloody Cuts,

Anthony, Jonny and Ben unfortunately have to announce with very heavy hearts that we will no longer be making Bloody Cuts episodes.

All good things, must come to an end...

It’s been a tough decision, but for numerous reasons we felt that it was right for the series to end in its current format. Since the release of our eighth film “Don’t Move”, we’ve been working on other exciting projects that for one reason or another has taken us away from the Bloody Cuts series, and rather than see it die a slow death, we felt it better to end the series.

A lot of hard work has gone into getting the series it is today, but it’s the support of our viewers that has really kept it going, so we want to thank you all for following, watching, sharing and enjoying our films.

But as our YouTube channel is about to break the 1 million mark, we just wanted to remind you of some of the things Bloody Cuts has achieved:

  • We released 9 short films (including “Dare”)
  • We created one of the biggest short filmmaking competitions of its type with BCHorrorChallenge.com
  • We entered over 30 festivals worldwide
  • Well over 1.5 million views online
  • Released and sold out an entire order of limited edition Blu-rays
  • We won awards at Texas Frightmare, Bootleg and FilmSkillet film festivals
  • And much, much more…

Making Bloody Cuts has literally changed our lives. It’s been (and we don’t use this word lightly) AMAZING.

However this isn’t the last project we’ll work on, or indeed the last thing much of the team will work on together. So as new projects and films develop, we’ll still be using this website, our Facebook Page, Twitter account and YouTube channel to let you all know what’s going on. Many of the Bloody Cuts team members are also working on projects of their own, which we’ll want to share with you.

For the next few weeks bloodycuts.co.uk will remain live in its current state hosting all of our legacy content, although there will be a slight reshuffle in the not too distant future so do expect the site to take on a new spectral form.

So THANK YOU, to each and every person that has ever given their time to support Bloody Cuts. It is, and always has been, something born of collaboration and great talent.

Not many filmmakers could’ve achieved what our team has with such limited budgets and in such a short amount of time; this is nothing but a true testament to the hard work and generosity of all involved.

So we hope that you’ll all join us in raising a glass to Bloody Cuts, and to the future too.

As that era ends, another one begins – we look forward to our next filmmaking adventure and hope you’ll be able to join that with us too.

Kindest regards,

Ben, Anthony and Jonny (and the rest of the Bloody Cuts team)

(SIGH)

 

Here’s the link to read the above announcement directly on the Bloody Cuts blog, plus there’s many more links there (such as to their Facebook and Twitter pages).

The reason we were over on that page on the first place was to put the breathtaking short “Don’t Move” up as the Scariest Short Horror Film of the Week (actually, maybe the month), which we’ll still be doing. If you’re wondering what else Bloody Cuts UK-related we’ve posted since we began…

Here’s the piece on “Dead Man’s Lake” (a big BC fan favorite)

You may recall the short films that took some of the top honors in their “Who’s There” Short Horror Film Challenge… such as the Grand Prize Winner “Play Time” …and what we thought was the Scariest Horror Short of May 2014, “Lights Out”.

Oh, and this fun entry into the contest (less likely to keep you awake, but still awesome) that won Best Cinematography, “Cut”.

More news as it comes in, since the creators of Bloody Cuts are assuring everyone they have some amazing things in the works (and we believe them). Keep your eyeballs peeled here as we’ll be posting several more of their shorts (including ones related to the contest).

Screen shot 2014-06-12 at 5.42.57 AM

We’re especially going to miss the elaborately-crafted posters for each of their horror shorts, including this one for “Don’t Move”.

 

*Please note that our week was already ruined when we rolled out of bed Monday to be greeted first thing with the tragic news that Rik Mayall had suddenly passed, lest it sound like we’re trying to make anyone involved feel guilty; we were in a shitty mood before we read about Bloody Cuts ending. Plus, the DVD/Blu-ray of all the films did come out.
