Biography

Maurice Devereaux (pronounced Morris Devro) was born in Montreal, Canada, and showed an interest in movies at an early age. He writes, produces, directs and edits his own films ever since he studied cinema at Ahuntsic College. Devereaux's self-description was featured on the Slashers DVD:
"Mine is a typical film-geek heritage; tons of Spielberg, Lucas and comic book superheroes as a kid. Superman the Movie, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Empire and Raiders are the movies that made me want to become a movie maker. In my teens, Carpenter, Kubrick, Raimi, Coppola, Romero and Argento were a huge influence. I also learned a lot reading Starlog and Fangoria magazines. In my twenties Lynch, Von Trier, the Coens, Jodorowsky, Rohmer, Allen and Scorsese had become a big part of my cinephile diet. Gigs directing and editing commercials and music videos, co-writing, editing and assistant-directing various shorts and features for filmmaker friends kept me alive during the long years trying to complete my own features."

After his self-financed first effort, Blood Symbol (1994), his second feature, Lady of the Lake (1998) and his follow-up, Slashers (2001), were distributed in the United States under the "Fangoria presents" label, and in the U.K., Canada, France, and Germany. He then wrote and directed PMS: Survival Tips (2003), a short film shot over a week-end, winner of the most popular film at the SPASM film festival, and a YouTube hit (December 2006) with well over 2 million viewers in just a month.

The film opens with Karen (Ilona Elkin), a traumatised woman, having a horrific nightmare involving a subway train. The flashback narrative plot follows her trapped in a subway. A Christian doomsday cult, which has been consuming and distributing hallucinogen-laced muffins that make people see visions of demons. On a texted signal, they take over services and begins massacring non-believers throughout the city, believing it is their mission to "save" the souls of humanity for God, which can only be accomplished by killing people with swords and daggers. A group of surviving train passengers and subway workers try to fight off and escape the cultists, but die one by one, leaving only Karen and two other people alive when the cultists are signaled to commit a mass suicide.

The latest craze is $la$her$, a Japanese blood sport game show where contestants can win millions of dollars if they survive being hunted through various arenas by costumed killers. All crimes are legal on the sets of the show, and what few rules there are (like having to remain motionless during commercials) are enforced by shock collars that the players and murderers must wear. The latest episode of $la$her$ is an all-American special in which the six contestants (Megan, Devon, Michael, Rick, Rebecca, and Brenda) will be pursued by "newbie" slasher Preacherman, and returning fan favorites Chainsaw Charlie, and Doctor Ripper.
