Butt Boy Synopsis

Chip Gutchel, a bored IT Engineer, has an awakening after a routine prostate exam. What begins as a harmless rectal kink, soon grows into a dangerous addiction as he becomes responsible for a missing child. Eventually, Chip buries his desires in Alcoholics Anonymous and tries to move on with his life.

Five years later, he becomes the AA sponsor of Russell Fox, a newly sober detective. And after Chip relapses, Russell is brought in to investigate another missing child… this time at Chip’s office. Russell begins to suspect that Chip’s addiction may not be to alcohol, but something much more sinister. It’s now up to Russell to prove that Chip uses his butt to make people disappear. But the question is, who’s going to believe his wild theory?

Hilarious, yet mischievous, BUTT BOY is a masterpiece that one will truly never forget. Viewers should not make any assumptions about the film, as one will get to the bottom of it. Writer/director Tyler Cornack has created an exceptionally entertaining and new aged take on a perfect game of cat and mouse.

Director’s Statement

“Butt Boy started off as a joke and remained that way until it was finished. But while writing it we were able to explore many different themes that I never thought would find their way into such a silly premise. The script and tone came very easily because we made a short film early on that already had what we were going for. The film just did it on a larger scale both story and production wise. Because I also acted in the film, preparation was a key aspect to production. I was able to gain access to all locations early on and take still photos that I could print out for the storyboard. That way I could work easily with our DP to show him what I wanted. We rehearsed the bigger scenes religiously because of the limited budget and time on each set. So we would come prepared, set up quickly, and shoot. I am very excited for people to experience Butt Boy. We had an amazing time making it come to life, and I feel at its core it is truly original. In a movie like “Airplane”, the characters find themselves in a very serious situation, but it’s filled with jokes. Butt Boy is the opposite…The premise is the joke itself and it plays it straight all the way until the end.”

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
