Ash Mountain Films & director Richard Rowntree, makers of the folk-horror festival hit “Dogged” ((which will be released later this year in North America & the UK on DVD & VOD by Left Films), have just nine days left in their crowdfunding campaign for their new feature film “Nefarious” – a home invasion horror/thriller with a twist.
They’re currently crowdfunding the project through Kickstarter.com – with the aim of raising £20,000 to shoot the film in September and October this year. With 32 different rewards available for backers, including earlybird digital downloads of the film for just £15, T Shirts, DVD’s, the chance to be an extra in the movie, and even producer credits on the film, there’s sure to be something for everyone. Their current total stands at 84% of their goal, and ends on 18 May at 4.30pm – it’s a all-or-nothing campaign, so if they don’t hit their target, they won’t get any of the money or be able to make the film. Take a look and see if you want to be a part of this ambitious British horror project.
Taking quite a different turn from the folk-horror sub-genre on this occasion, “Nefarious” centres on a home invasion which goes horrifically wrong and leaves the protagonists fighting for their lives against a predator of monstrous proportions.
The film promises to focus on themes relating to real world current issues including poverty & the class divide, mental health and sexual manipulation, and boasts a cast horror fans will be familiar with in Toby Wynn-Davies (Escape From Cannibal Farm, Dogged) and star of the hit Crypt TV short film “The Birch”, Aaron Thomas Ward.
The team have promised some imaginative & gory practical effects, combined with a very character driven story which should appeal to horror fans everywhere.
