'George' short film wins Toronto 48 Hour Challenge

Toronto, CA – Horror short film, 'George is a Goddamn Psychopath', was the big winner at the 2013 Toronto 48 Hour Horror Film Challenge.


The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie - write, shoot, and edit - in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in - and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families. The Toronto 48 Hour Horror Film Challenge is similar to the flagship competition we all know and love - except all of the genres are horror-themed.

The Hottake Media™ original, 'George is a Goddamn Psychopath' was directed by Mitch Boudreau and produced by Alex Tomaszewski. The film won every available award presented at the event, including Best Picture, Best Directing, Best Acting and Best Audio respectively.

The film follows a group of friends who break into a movie cinema after operation hours, only to be confronted by George - a saran-wrapped psychopath with the thirst to kill.
