Four women have uninvited visitors in their Rockwellian home and show their imposing guests what terror truly is.
UPDATE! WE MADE IT! BUT DON'T STOP! We wrapped and have seen what kind of amazing we got. This film deserves a post-production effort that will take this film to the next level. Every dime we get from this kickstarter will be going to making the five year old vision a reality. And with the editing already done, I have no doubt every dime is meant to go to these amazing visual surgeons.
After working on the script and pre-production for the past three years, STRIPPED is in the middle of production at a studio in Dallas, Texas. It is a dream come true for a number of us who have been attached to this project since its inception.
Thanks to our generous investors, we have exactly enough to shoot with some amazing talent in front of the camera and behind it. We just need a little more to take 20 days of sexy, dirty horror and edit it into 90 minutes of style, sensuality, and terror.
You can be a producer, too! Get in on the post-production and help us bring STRIPPED to life.
STRIPPED follows the events surrounding a birthday outing with two brothers and a friend which turns into a horrific fight for survival after they become trapped in a house with a “family” of vintage-styled, malevolent, cannibalistic women.
Sorry, boys. Birthday's over.
Three hapless men who underestimate the power of the femme fatale or the ladies who see men purely as ingredients - who will you root for?
Think about it like this: What if THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE was committed by women? Or the maniacal family in THE DEVIL’S REJECTS was 100% female? Death. With a woman's touch.
We have an amazing cast put together which includes international star Samrat Chakrabarti, indie actor and producer Gabriel Horn, and RJ Hanson. On the ladies' side, we have Texas beauty Farah White, tough as nails Melodie Sisk, and anime darling Brina Palencia. Plus, we are excited to introduce adult film icon, Michelle Sinclair (Belladonna to fans), in her mainstream premiere.
After a false start exactly two years ago, the project was revived this year. Now, with a studio, a crew, a cast, and a few creepy mannequin heads, we are closing in on the martini shot.
* Special effects guru, Marcus Koch, made stunning "meals" of the macabre.
* Set Design genius, Adam Dietrich, with the crack production team at Agora Studio created the house of horrors that cold-hearted-girly-girls make.
* John Wildman, the director with horror films in his DNA, came from NYC Skyping and screaming his vision at people. He is now deep into the shooting schedule and barely sleeps, barely eats, only obsessing on dailies and shot lists.
* The writer Justina Walford stays in NYC for most of the production, pining for a day when she doesn't relate to a Charlie Kaufman character.
The film shoots in Dallas for the month of June. We have just enough money to shoot it. Get it in the can, as they say. We need $25,000 to pay for post-production costs including editing, digital effects and music.
There's a whole lot of fun things to get when you give. Maybe you'd like a little visual help?

Writer Justina Walford will meet you at your in-home screening with a 90 page script she's written just for you. You get to choose the genre and main character. In fact, tell her a little about yourself and she'll write the main character around you! (Well, what she thinks is you. Because, does anyone really know **you**?) No rewrites. Justina gets cranky about rewrites. But does genius really need a rewrite?Estimated delivery: Dec 2012
