Ordinary people - extraordinarily dead, uncommonly rich or both in the flash of a moment.
Remember 2010? Disastrous economy. People out of work. Thousands losing their homes. Two endless wars... And the census.
John Trasker, a lonely middle-aged man, decides to rejoin the human race. So he applies for a job as a census-taker. While working door-to-door, he stumbles upon death and three million dollars in a vacant farm house. Trasker takes the money but becomes a modern-day Robin Hood, anonymously dropping bundles of cash in brown, lunch bags upon the down-and-out souls he meets while going door-to-door.
Unfortunately for Trasker and those poor souls, the money belongs to a killer who does not want to share. The killer is on the hunt, one step behind the money. The killer will do whatever it takes to get the money back. Anything.
Filled with terror, remorse and guilt, Jeff never sees the killer. The end is a surprise. Turns out the killer was one step ahead all along.
Death Walks Behind You is a movie* about ordinary people thrust into extraordinary situations. Its hero struggles to survive while keeping his humanity. Death Walks Behind You's backdrop is the untold story of the recession's impact on a midwestern town. Filmed in the suburbs and rural areas surrounding Columbus, Ohio, the heart of the story is its characters.
Census-taking grants the viewer access to the diverse people who populate the midwest and to share the random nature of their lives. But the story is about the chase and the hunt, good and evil.
Funds received will complete the cast, create sets, pay for small wages, equipment rentals, catering, transportation, fees and pledged gifts.

One shrink-wrapped copy of our first full-feature, HAUNT, on DVD (2002). A 127 minute-plus disaster with an unknown cast of 400 plus. We learned a lot from making this movie which has developed a following due to its pure insanity. "Scream queen Lucy Fear is about to open the doors of her newest haunted house, a million dollar electronic-horror extravaganza inside a 120,000 square foot building built in 1875. The building is known to be haunted. She hires a commercial videographer to set up cameras throughout to capture her premiere opening. All that enter never exit. In the cameras and on those tapes are the recipe for a very unique and everlasting Hell on Earth."Estimated delivery: Aug 2012

The above, plus one copy of our second full-feature, The Haunted Movie (2004). Ninety-six minutes of brain-freeze. We tried to keep the story fast-paced and really tried to push the envelope. The story is about a film-maker, Ripley, and the movie he is making. Ripley has wanted to make a movie since he was eight years old. It has to be his masterpiece, because he will never get another chance.Estimated delivery: Aug 2012
