As horror enthusiasts, haven’t we seen the Killer in the woods concept one too many times before? The narrative is straightforward, a group of individuals ventures out into the backcountry. A lodge in the woodlands, removed from mobile reception and connection with civilization is the familiar backdrop. Add a serial killer and panicking lambs for annihilation and this is the trademark of a classic Slasher film.
The writing team of Adam Anderson, Joe Marcy, and Peter Marcy brings the time-tested formula in Attack of the Tattie-Bogle. What is The Tattie-Bogle, it is unclear but the legend may hang out with the Jeeper creature, pun intended.

The trailer for Attack of the Tattie-Bogle runs just under two (2) minutes and in this time viewer have sufficient material to understand the plot. Attack of the Tattie-Bogle, based on the footage is a standard homage to the slasher concept. The crescendo becomes obvious in the opening seconds of this promo trailer. I enjoy slasher films, the mindless gore-filled cat-and-mouse plot is, entertaining. I can’t say if Attack of the Tattie-Bogle will stack up against classics and/or notable entrants to the genre.
In my trailer first impressions for WTF! I considered the film to lack character. It turns out despite the template-based slasher appeal this film became a refreshing surprise. I will not commit the same mistake twice with the trailer am exploring here.
Although Attack of the Tattie-Bogle provides the standard components to the slasher Horror concept, I will wait and see how the final product matures. Will the characters be displeasing, will the blood /gore content be amusing? Audiences will have to stick around to watch.
Yet the trailer for Attack of the Tattie-Bogle yielded evidence of B-Movie stylized acting. There were incidents of terror that lacked any grasp of trepidation. Also clear was the insufficient lighting. What was the reason behind this decision? Some scenes within the lodge either did not have sufficient lighting, or the camera did not have its white balance settings configured. Kudos to the trailer editor for not acknowledging the adversary, omitting the killer from this promo video raises interest in the film.
Attack of the Tattie-Bogle has a tale to express whether it’s pure slasher film or supernatural Infuse slasher lurks within the eventual release.
