“The Tuckering” is a comedy-horror film that asks the question, what happens when a homicidal serial killer gets too out of shape to catch and kill his prey? The script has much in common with farcical comedies like “Wet Hot American Summer," “Anchorman” and “Airplane,” and throws in a healthy dose of all your favorite summer camp slashers. So if you’ve got “killer” comic timing, there just might be a role for you.
Cast:[LANCE] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 20-25] YouTuber good looks have earned this Alpha male everything he’s ever wanted. He’s the cocky ringleader of the camp counselor crew and a magnet for the ladies, but when a crazed killer takes over Camp Wanamakachoo, he’s not likely to stick around. [MARCO] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 20-25] The second-in-command toady who lives to terrorize nerds and impress the ladies. He’s got the physique of an all-star linebacker. All brawn, no brains. [TAD] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 20-25] The nerd everyone loves to pick on. He’s smarter than everyone in the room, but still ends being the guy hanging from the flagpole by his underwear. [SANDY] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-25] The kind of girl who’d do anything to get the guy. She’s pretty and smart, desperate and clingy, and fit enough to outrun an out-of-shape serial killer. [DAWN] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-25] You can count on her to steal the booze from the liquor cabinet, possibly a convenience if things get desperate. She’s tough, determined and ready to party.
