‘Tis the season of giving, and we know you’re probably already exhausted from trying to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. So we’ll make this simple: here are some horror creators who just need one thing–cold hard cash. Even just a couple of dollars will help these projects inch closer to their financial goals, and the ability to realize their creative dreams. Plus, you’ll get a little something in return. Now doesn’t that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?
Til Death Do Us Part
Most of us have heard the age-old question: what would you do for love? In Til Death Do Us Part, a young woman encounters Death, and falls in love with her. Knowing that there’s only one way to keep seeing the object of her affection, she does the only logical thing and becomes a serial killer. Hoping to change the face of horror, this film is made by Georgia Southern students with a crew comprised entirely of women of colour.
Cassette tapes may be the current hipster obsession, but they used to be for more than just hosting some indie band’s new EP. In the short noir film Cassette, a plucky female detective is charged with solving a gruesome murder. The only evidence? A cryptic audio message from the victim, recorded to tape just moments before her death.
If you’re a fan of old movies, you’re likely familiar with London After Midnight, the 1927 vampire film featuring man-of-a-thousand faces Lon Chaney. You may also know that the only print was lost to a fire at MGM in the 1960s. However, writer and fanboy Daniel Titley has recently acquired new materials from the film–frames, scripts, and production photographs–and wants to share them with the public in a new book London After Midnight: Lost & Found. Contribute to his campaign and be one of the lucky few to view these forgotten artifacts.
Forsaken Forest: Spirit Uprising
It’s the start of many horror films–a group of travellers lost in a forest accidentally awaken an ancient evil. Now you too can be those cursed travellers with the expansion pack of Forsaken Forest: Spirit Uprising, a social deduction horror card game. Fight mysterious forces, kill your opponents, all while trying to reach a hidden destination. Sounds like good, clean fun to us!
