"OverKill", the new horror-comedy short film from Writer/Director/Editor, Alex Montilla ("Cheat Day", "Hot Tub Time Machine"), is a film with a comedic take on a familiar setup: when too-woke-for-their-own-good college kids are terrorized by an unstoppable masked killer, the final girl must outsmart him to survive. Only in this movie, the killer literally cannot be stopped (or killed).It's an 80's slasher movie by way of "Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner" cartoons.

"The Virgin"

Amy Letcher

Born and raised between South Africa and Zimbabwe, Amy Letcher grew up climbing trees, running barefoot down dirt roads in the rain, and writing stories in the long grass of the African countryside. Having trained at AFDA (South African School of Live Performance and Motion Picture Medium) and The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles, Amy has gone on to win 'Best Overall Adult Actress' at the 2015 AMTC Summer SHINE International Convention in Florida, nab lead roles in several films hitting the festival circuit in coming months, appear in numerous television series, including the Emmy award winning Black Sails, and create and star in her own solo show.

"The Killer"

Will Coffin

Will has deep roots in Hollywood and the arts. His great grandfather was one of the original Real Estate developers of Hollywood and his father was the lead sound engineer for Dylan's '79 world tour. He started his acting career at an early age while living in New Zealand, taking a leading role in an all-male production of Guys and Dolls, then going on to play many supporting roles in musicals throughout the years. He also has a knack for hacking and DIY and has collaborated with Alex Montilla on several productions assisting with set design and construction as well as technical design and special effects. He has been featured in several of the student films produced by emerging young filmmakers Alex Montilla and Max Landis. He looks forward showing his range in "OverKill" and finding creative ways to add to the blood, gore and mayhem.



Alex Montilla

Alex Montilla has been making movies since high school when he and his friends took over the morning announcements. Through that process, Alex learned the basics of filmmaking: acting, writing, directing, editing, visual effects, name it. All of these skills came in handy when he attended the University of Miami's film school. After making the leap to Los Angeles, he worked in the editing room for studio films like "Hot Tub Time Machine" and "The Muppets", on the sets of "Hop" and "The Hangover Part III" and as an Assistant Editor for ESPN's Grantland. All the while, Alex continues to write, direct and edit his own films. His last effort, "Cheat Day", was a hit with audiences and he looks forward to sharing "OverKill" with the world.

Story Concept/Web Designer

Jason Montilla

Jason has been an innovator and leader in the information technology field since 1996. His skills in web development, graphic design, music, and writing have let him work on many exciting projects. Jason helped to create the Digital Media program at the University of Central Florida, did conceptual digital interactive development for Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando, graphic and web development for Walt Disney World, and creative work on "Cheat Day." Most recently, Jason has been involved in community theater and improv in the Central Florida area for Mimi's Community Theater.

Chris Ranier

Chris Ranier is an avid guitarist, composer and producer with over ten years of professional experience and a degree in orchestra composition. He has shared the stage with many guitar greats, been nationally published in a music instruction book, and played on network television. When he's not on stage, Chris writes and records songs and score for everything from commercials to film, several of which have won awards or been featured in film festivals. For "OverKill", Chris will be looking to classic synth-driven horror scores for inspiration to create a nostalgic horror feel similar to that of a classic John Carpenter score. Chris is excited to be once again collaborating with Alex Montilla on their fourth and most exciting film yet.
