Murder runs rampant again in Texas in THE TOY BOX, a new feature from director/cinematographer Michael Colburn, who gave us some info on the soon-to-lens feature. Based on an original screenplay by Kristin Wong that was adapted by Jennifer Peebles, the movie is based on the true case of serial killer David Parker Ray, who is suspected of slaying as many as 60 victims, whom he tortured in the homemade chamber of the title.
“This is by all means a horror-oriented film,” Colburn tells us. “However, as part of making this film ‘based on a true story,’ we’re filming it from a different perspective, more of the victims’ viewpoint. I was fortunate enough to sign a contract with John Glatt, the author of CRIES IN THE DESERT, a book about David Parker Ray, to give my film its authenticity. My ambitions for THE TOY BOX are to explore true-life, real evil and bring awareness to the public that, just because a killer like this slipped up and got caught, it doesn’t mean there isn’t someone else out there who is still getting away with it.”
