Calling all scary movie fans! Scotland, 1994. Eighteen-year-old Thumper Connell still has an imaginary friend: the masked killer from his favourite slasher film. Thumper is obsessed with horror and always has been. He fills his time with scary VHS rentals and hanging out with his fellow fans, The Murder Club. But everything changes when his local video shop acquires one of the notorious films known as “video nasties” — films so scary, they’re banned and burned. It’s only a movie, though, right? It’s all just imaginary, isn’t it? A story about the perception of evil, the power of genre, the love of fandom, the need to create art… oh, and crap-your-pants TERROR!
