—Satan, Hold My Hand - Theme 1

The first theme for the upcoming ASS Studios’ feature length film ‘Satan, Hold My Hand’ has been recorded and can now be streamed here! (Produced, Written and Recorded by Courtney Fathom Sell) 

Jonathan Ames (Writer/Creator of HBO’s ‘Bored to Death) signs on as Exec. Producer to new ASS Studios’ film!

ASS Studios, the most underfunded motion picture studio in history, is excited to announce that their first feature “Satan, Hold My Hand” has finally begun production after several months of major setbacks (their only camera breaking coupled with poverty and crippling depression.) The film, which will be directed by Courtney Fathom Sell and is based off of a screenplay by Reverend Jen will pay homage to early grindhouse cinema, 70’s psychotronic movies and the work of Joe D’Amato, Russ Meyers and Ted V. Mikels. In other breaking news, Jonathan Ames, writer and creator of the HBO series “Bored To Death” has signed on as Executive Producer! The feature is set to be complete by March 2013. 

"Satan, Hold My Hand" revolves around 2 schoolgirls who ditch class only to run into a band of half-assed Satanists who kidnap them for one unholy purpose! There are several other crazy subplots including a Yiddish-speaking Ouija Board, a love affair between a stoner and an incubus and a ritual gone horribly wrong. The project will feature a cast of familiar faces from the ASS Studios’ family including Reverend Jen (of ‘“The Sinful Bitches", "Electra Elf" & Troma’s "Terror Firmer", Faceboy (of "The Sinful Bitches" & ‘Electra Elf’), Robert Prichard (of "The Toxic Avenger" & "Class of Nuke ‘em High"), Reina Terror ("The Sinful Bitches", "The Bitches of Bowery"), Amanda Whip ("Waltz of the Bitches"), Scooter Pie ("Girl on Girl"), Femme Appeal ("The Bitches of Bowery") and other brilliant art stars.

Further information will be released as production continues. The film can be followed through ASS Studios’ Official Facebook page or at ASSstudios.tumblr.com. Stay tuned!
