ASSASSINS - Michael Bonomo

There is an up and coming director by the name of Michael Bonomo that is in the pre-production stages of his debut feature film, ASSASSINS. Michael Bonomo recently launched his website that contains news, updates and everything else you'd ever want to know about his projects along with his music videos, trailers and short films that have played in film festivals throughout the world. The link to the website can be found under the Pages of Interest section to the right, or simply click here.

Like all independent films, funding is necessary and sometimes difficult to come by, ASSASSINS is no different in that fact. ASSASSIN has a donation page at IndieGoGo with some seriously cool perks if you donate certain levels, but anything you can afford is accepted and graciously welcomed. I have no personal investment in this film other than wanting to help out a director with a lot of promise get a project with just as much promise to be the best it can be. Sometimes as horror, cult movies or independent film fans we have to help each other out in getting a project to be all that it can be. This is a personal post about a director I'm excited to see more from, and a film I think can be really great. Even if you can't donate right now, check out the project because it is something I think you will all enjoy.


Synopsis: Life changed for Chris that Thursday evening. The brutal murder of his ex-girlfriend has left him shaken. More than that, he is haunted by the face of a man he doesn’t know, just a stranger Chris saw walking down the street moments before he opened the door to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment. Moments before a large part of his world came crashing down.

And it is not about to get better.

Only a week later, Chris finds himself faced with yet another stranger, a man who claims to know who his ex-girlfriend’s killer is. The stranger’s name is Simon and the explanation he gives to Chris makes his blood run cold. The man who murdered his ex-girlfriend is an extremely dangerous man, a contract killer, and the fact that Chris has seen his face can only mean one thing: he will be coming back around to make sure Chris doesn’t share what he knows.

He will be coming soon to kill him.

Simon, a bounty hunter who has been tracking the mysterious killer for nearly a decade, has a plan. As he has never laid eyes on the killer, Simon will lure him out into the open so that Chris can identify him. Then he will take him down. But Simon might not be as helpful as he appears to be and Chris quickly finds himself becoming a pawn in a very deadly game of retribution between two savage men willing to do whatever it takes to see the other man dead.
