Original Slashers Guild
As of May 14, 2010 Steven Spielberg approached a handful of associate film directors and proposed to create a theater distribution similar to Grindhouse or Reinhart.
He proposed that the theater possess an original name and release high budget, ensemble cast slasher films that are not remakes of any original slasher and are original in their own right.
Director Steve Miner signed on immediately to the at first untitled company and then was followed by directors: Tim Burton, Steven Soderberg and finally Lasse Hallstrom.
Each of the directors would form a cast and crew and create their own prestigious original slasher film and release it for the theater they would create.
The theater titled as of March 31, 2010 as the Original Slasher's Guild had revealed teaser trailers for the films that would be made and would be released back to back.
The first film completed was Steve Miner's slasher film the Cave which was then followed by Hallstrom's slasher Farm.
They were released on January 30 at the Original Slashers Guild.
