We all know not all movies are big budgets, but have you ever wondered where low budget movies come from? It’s hard work getting the money put in to make a film hit it’s full potential. Well, the site kickstarter.com is filled with potential movies, and allows you to help fund them, with benefits to you of course! I decided to take a look through, and show you some of the films I think could be great with a little help from the horror community of course.
1. The Cheerleaders Must Die
The Cheerleaders Must Die is reporting it`s self to be a call back to 80s slasher films, where you want to see the characters win, and not the villain. The plot will follow the Armadillo High Cheer Squad on a trip to Shady Pines Spirit Camp, where the body count will start to pile up.
Killer Granny is going to be a short film, based on a screenplay that made finalist in seven, count ‘em, seven festivals. The story follows Cybill Siegel as she celebrates her 80th birthday. But little do the guests know, she’s caught on to the fact they want to put her in a home, and Cybill isn’t very happy about it.
Billy Club is a horror movie said to be following in the footsteps of Halloween, TCSM, and Friday the 13th. Being directed by Nick Sommer and Drew Rosas, the directing team behind Blood Junkie, which is distributed through the much loved Troma. The plot seems to be your Cabin In The Woods style slasher, but with a twist.
So there you have it, three of the best looking titles I’ve seen asking for help. I’m hoping to have these in my movie library in the future, and I’ll be able to say I helped make it happen. I don’t know about you, but that’s worth my money.
