Tony – London Serial Killer is the debut film from Gerard Johnson that opens in cinemas on February 5th. It gets a dvd release a few days later on February 8th. Starring newcomer Peter Ferdinando, the film is dark thriller that tells the story of a week in the life of misfit Tony. He is an unemployable recluse living in London with an unfashionable moustache, prone to outbursts of violence.

Tony actually started life as a 14 minute short film (which will be included on the dvd release). One of many made by Gerard and Peter, who are in fact real life cousins. Keeping this as a family affair, Gerard also enlisted brother Matt Johnson of The The to supply the atmospheric soundtrack. The film received it’s first screening at last year’s Edinburgh Film Festival. Also it recently aired at the Slamdance Film Festival in Utah. This has seen it compared to Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer and Taxi Driver, putting it in good company.

Musical Family

The soundtrack to Tony by The The, as mentioned, will be available to buy as a download first. A lavishly packaged cd promised to follow. All instrumental, you can hear some snippets from it via Radio Cineola, which is a new monthly fifteen minute “radio” broadcast from Matt. You can stream these from the official website, or buy each one at higher quality from the website store. Each broadcast promises to feature upcoming The The material, as well as digging in to his personal archives for some real rarities. Another project in the pipeline is an album called The End Of The Day, which will feature many new versions and variations of The The classics. Few details have been made available as yet. But if rumours are to be believed, it will feature a cover of August And September by the equally wonderful Elbow.

Tony – London Serial Killer continues to receive great reviews everywhere. Look out for it in the coming weeks and try and check it out if you can.
