The Most Offensive Horror Parody Releases: The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever

**TDHFE 2015 - Promo Day 2c - Jeepers Creepers.jpg**TDHFE 2015 Promo - One More Day - Dee

In today’s world, the media has pushed the envelope whether it’s saying “shit” on TV and radio more than ever, discussing racial topics and exploiting others for it, lots of boobage and sex on YouTube and TV (Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”, Justin Timberlake’s “Tunnel Vision” and hello – Miley Cyrus) or just plain violent programming on network TV and cable access (Hannibal or MTV’s Scream that premiered Tuesday anyone?) Needless to say, the world has changed a lot in the last 10 years.

New 2015 trailer parodies “The Gallows” TV Spot.

Disclaimer: This film is may be rude, crude, offensive, politically incorrect and is for mature (and immature) audiences who like that. The movie in no way represents the feelings or thoughts of anyone involved in the project. Trippy Tran Films holds no responsibility for the material of this film. You have been warned. You may get pissed off – or you may just laugh.. a lot.

Parodies in #TDHFE include Scream, The Ring, Final Destination, Darkness Falls, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Freddy vs. Jason, Saw, Taco Bell, Scream 4 (even though it was released 6 years after Tran’s short, he originally had a Scream barn scene parody) and more. The script had tons more parodies that have never been filmed yet, but the final product is still pretty awesome.

Celebrate 10 years of The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever!

Flashback to 2004/2005. Director/writer Anthony Tran was 16 years old and went to YMCA Summer Camp before his junior year. There, he wrote a short skit including 4 girls in his weight lifting class. The skit was then presented on stage for the end of the week talent show called “Scream Again Yo” being a parody of the Scream franchise as well as other horror films. He then wrote his “Sk8r Boi” Avril Lavigne parody called “Hermaphrodites”. Then in his junior year of high school, he went to attend the Scarlet Oaks Vocational School in Cincinnati in the program most fitting for him: Digital Television Production or DTV. He was making new music videos, skits, learning how to edit with Final Cut Pro and more. His passion for writing hadn’t stopped and so he turned his Scream Again Yo into a 50 page script called The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever. With friends reading it, some shocked and some thinking it was the most hilarious thing ever, he began to film scenes for the project and edited it at school.

Now the kicker is that he was 16, young, a rebel, with an imagination like no other. He implemented racial issues into his movie and began to talk about what is funny in different cultures for an ending that left everyone washed away by the flood (except for a “lucky” few) spoofing The Day After Tomorrow and realizing that without the differences and cultures in our world, it would indeed be a boring place. But that’s not without saying the film may be offensive to many with it’s racial slurs, fat jokes and mentally challenged spoofs of horror icons Freddy and Jason.

Ring TDHFE still1As Tran grew up, he didn’t really get back into putting the film together as the script was only half shot, the Scream Again Yo scene never to be found (never filmed except for the YMCA Leaders Camp skit in which he paid for and never received a DVD for) and a lot of politically incorrect teenage angst built up as he was bullied in school before he began the project by several races that judged him for being half Asian (and ambitious) for being himself.

EXCLUSIVE! Read part of the original script here.

10 years later with moving films like His Name Is Walter to even more comedy mayhem like Wreckfest, Tran decided to take a look at whatever footage was salvaged before the film was gone for good. A fresh new cut – literally – has been made for the film. Some scenes were unable to be found like the classic The Ring parody where he actually shot the side of the TV with his friend Kat crawling out with long hair asking for chalupas. Memories like that will never be forgotten as he attempted his first feature, and only time will tell if any of the other footage will ever see the new world of YouTube and social media. At least we have this. The most offensive movie you may ever see.

Mary Jo Schottelkotte met the owner/operator of Trippy Tran Films, Mr. Anthony Tran, while she was eating at a LaRosa’s Pizzeria in Anderson Township back in 2011. After meeting him, she then decided to write an article about Tran also mentioning our upcoming feature film “Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown”. You can read about her own project ‘Footprints On The Air: Television Legends of Cincinnati’ at her website www.footprintsontheair.com

Service With a Side of Reel Ambition
(Published 2/20/11)

An interesting film is in production, and it’s crazy the way I found out about it.  I was dining alone at a well known local pizza establishment, and my waiter was none other than the filmmaker himself!  He’s a good waiter; very upbeat, pays attention to detail and timing, checks back often.  He was being chatty – servers seem to have one of two minds when you’re dining alone; either they feel they should make conversation so you don’t feel lonely (because they’re embarrassed for you), or they leave you alone so you don’t feel uncomfortable (because they’re embarrassed for you).  He seemed to have the former mindset.  I figured he wanted a good tip, and wasn’t going to assume that I wasn’t worth the effort just because I was by myself (low bill = low tip) and a female (even lower tip).  His is, by the way, a good strategy because I am also a former waitress and I tend to over tip, especially if the service is good.  So those of you in the service industry, take note: never assume.

Through the course of my meal and the friendly chatting, he divulged that he is a filmmaker with a feature length piece currently in production.  He is Anthony Tran, and he calls his film entity Trippy Tran Films.  You can actually check his work out on YouTube, which is what I did, to view the trailers he’s created for this feature he’s working on “Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown.”  It’s a project exploring the concept of “connection” on a number of different levels. The film itself it has to do with unseen layers of the world, encounters with dark energies as experienced by the lead character who has agreed to participate in a sleep deprivation study.  She is a college student taking part in a Psychology study who is at a crossroads with a few aspects of her life, as most college students are.  As the study advances and she dutifully remains awake for the required three days, she begins to experience a manipulation by invisible dark forces and grapples with her changing perceptions of good and evil.  The genre is psychological thriller peppered with comic relief, Anthony assures me.

The other aspect that I find interesting, and is the filmmaker’s means for exploring “connectivity” in real life, is that the cast and crew has been assembled by a call to anyone in the community who wants to experience the process of making a feature film.  While Tran’s goal is ultimately to have a film to screen locally at area theaters, and then to enter into film festivals; it’s also to create something out of nothing more than a sharing of ideas and talent by a group of creative people dedicated to the process.  There is no pay for your contribution.  But if you want a way to showcase your talent just for the exposure, or to explore your affinity to the industry, here’ your venue. What I saw on YouTube showed promise for “Obliquity” – good production quality, a compelling soundtrack (so far), with adequate acting.  I liked the song “Day Dreamer” written for the film by local musician, Matthew Wayne.  If Tran can get the participation he needs from interested cast and crew, I’m curious to see the finished piece.

You’ll see what looks like everything he’s ever shot in his life on his YouTube Channel, but forgive some of the earlier works and notice that he is evolving.  He seems to bring some of the same qualities he has as a server to his craft – a positive attitude, attention to detail and timing, and a desire to please.  He needs to post a mission statement, but his ambition with film at the moment seems to be to explore the ways we influence each other with thoughts and actions through mind-bending stories and satire.  And he wants to prove that successful, professional films can be made right here in Greater Cincinnati.  I’m game for that Trip!

Psych Thriller ‘Obliquity’ Whets Appetite with New Behind-The-Scenes Clips

The anticipated debut feature with the tagline “More Than The Eye Can See” from Trippy Tran Films and Sovereign Entertainment has recently released (mostly) spoiler-free Behind-The-Scenes segments on YouTube.com/TrippyTranFilms – be sure to subscribe as new videos will be added. The journey shows tie-ins to Tran’s original short “Duality” with glimpses at some of the surprises in store for the upcoming full-length independent psych thriller Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown.

(watch the new behind-the-scenes adventure here):
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2I1IfO0DKp4bSeUXiYlTe9UoO-_SRaL5

The video clips include previously unreleased interviews, insight on the lives and thoughts of the cast and crew, waiting in the rain for location clearance, flat tires, getting lost, favorite film parts, the mishaps and the accomplishments, plus, the director himself in action giving viewers a chance to see what it really took for us to make this community-oriented full-length indie film in the Greater Cincinnati Area.

Tran also mentions future releases in the playlist are going to include bands from the Obliquity soundtrack performing live, photo shoots with all the actors for the movie poster, the original cast (recorded with old school cell phones), rehearsing, voice overs and a First-Look at the band ALTERED in the recording studio performing the song they wrote for our film – also entitled “Obliquity”. (Playlist link is above – with 34 clips currently.) We will update the playlist weekly until we run out – and that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Now when viewing the clips, you may notice that they are completely unedited video segments recorded per clip. Due to it being filmed off of a Sony Handycam (that Chris Hicks gave Tran in 2011) we found it to be incompatible with the MacBook used for handling the movie’s files while editing on Final Cut Pro. When we tried to view the file, there was no audio. We decided to give you the raw recordings as part of the experience because of that.

AMANDA DELMASHAY is a slacker by choice and is no different when given the chance to either do a sleep deprivation study or read the psychology textbook in a weekend. This girl has fallen off the band-wagon since high school from frequent use of drugs and alcohol and abuses it more than ever now that she’s approaching her college graduation. Throughout the sleep deprivation study, mixing hardcore substances with lack of sleep allow her mind to become wildly vulnerable to what seems to be unknown.
