Okay, horror fans! I’m Kevin Tenney. I directed the original Night Of The Demons and it became a cult classic, spawning two successful sequels. A few years ago, Adam Gierasch (Autopsy, Toolbox Murders) remade my original Night Of The Demons and the response was overwhelming. Ever since, fans have constantly asked me, “When are you going to make another Demons film?” And here’s my answer: "It’s up to all of you."
We’ve put together an impressive . . . I mean REALLY impressive . . . crew and a kick ass script—Night Of The Demons: After-Party. It’s Halloween and we’re in a cemetery, having a party. Suddenly, there are demons and zombies everywhere, and all hell breaks loose! Literally!
We can’t wait to get started. Here's the team so far:
Known for: More than 100 films, including Night Of The Demons (2009). This popular queen of scream plays our lead character, Diana, who gets possessed by the main demon, Angela.
Known for: Leprechaun 1-4, Basketcase 2 & 3. Worked on special effects makeup for: Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI, Dolls, Gremlins 2: The New Batch (with Rick Baker), Back To The Future . . . The Ride (T-Rex skin), Godzilla.
With a group like this, you know this is gonna be classic.
We’ve got some great rewards . . . The cemetery could be named after you. You could be a demon . . . Or a walking corpse. You can even sign up to have Angela kill you on screen. What more could a horror fan want?
If we reach our goal, we’ll start working on the film over the summer, developing the special effects and locking everything down while we wait for hurricane season to be over. Then we’ll begin shooting in Louisiana in late September or October. We’ve got traditional and cutting edge online distribution lined up around the world and our goal is to release the film in time for Halloween, 2014.
So why are we asking you for money? Well, we've got some of it, but not all we need. Money raised the traditional way comes with strings. “Could you tone down the blood and gore, and give us less nudity?” WTF!!! This is a horror movie! We don’t want that. You don’t want that. You want the real deal, and that’s what we want to make.
As fans of the earlier versions already know, in the original Night Of The Demons, some “interesting” things happened with a tube of lipstick. The 2009 remake continued the tradition and took it one step further.
Kinda makes you wonder what might happen next, doesn't it?
For After-Party, we want to take everything to the next level . . . to give you something you’ll really talk about. If we raise more than our goal, we’ll make it even better. More blood, more gore, more music, more of everything you want.
So, if you’re a horror fan . . . if you want the real deal from creators who are passionate about the genre, help us get this movie made . . . pledge. And we’ll give you a horror experience you’ll never forget.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES:
We face all the risks of making a movie. Tony could get run over by a truck. We might need to replace someone who isn’t working out. We plan to shoot in the fall in New Orleans. That’s after hurricane season, but Mother Nature doesn’t always follow plans and might interrupt our New Orleans shooting schedule. We’ll do everything we can to offset those risks (production insurance, contingency plans, a team with decades of experience). So we should be able to handle whatever gets thrown at us.
We’ll be working with our distributors to get all your digital downloads and other rewards to you safely and on schedule, but delays could happen if things don’t go as planned. And when you’re making a film, sometimes they don’t. But between the key cast and crew, we’ve made a lot of films. We know what we’re doing.
Some important information:
- Travel, lodging, food and transportation to events and set visits are not included in any reward bundle;
- You must be over 18 or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to attend a premiere or set visit;
- Some rewards (particularly set visits) may require additional paperwork to protect us and you;
- We may decide to premiere this film online;
- If you appear in the film, we’ll need you to sign a release.

Those of you who know Night Of The Demons will recognize the footage from the previous films in the series. We used it to give you an idea of where we’re going with this. If you like the footage, you’ll love what comes next . . .
No. This is a completely original script, set around a party in a cemetery on Halloween. Here's an extended synopsis from our writer, Sean Tretta:
When we last visited NIGHT OF THE DEMONS, it was Halloween, and a reluctant group of party-goers spent the night trying to fend off the seductive, sick, and twisted advances of a group of DEMONS hell-bent on enacting an ancient ritual to open the gates of hell…
Luckily, Maddie (as played by Monica Keena) was there to royally f#%k those plans up.
Now, it’s Halloween again, and that first party’s other survivor, Diana (Tiffany Shepis), is unwisely throwing another bad-ass Halloween party at the very cemetery where Angela (the first party’s gateway DEMON, as played by Shannon Elizabeth) just-so-happens-to-be buried...
Not a good idea… which brings us to Sarah.
Sarah just wants a few things: to look hot in her costume, get drunk, dance with her friends, fool around with her boyfriend, and for once have a birthday that isn’t completely RUINED by the fact that she was born on October, 31st, HALLOWEEN.
Unfortunately, her bad luck isn’t about to change as Sarah and her friends find themselves at Diana’s awesome, yet ill-fated cemetery party. When Diana becomes possessed by Angela’s demon, horror and hilarity ensue, as the party becomes a rip-roaring, rock-n-roll BLOODBATH of awkward social humiliation, mistaken prostitutional obligations, painful demon-sex, unscrupulous backstabbing MILF’s, life-saving smart-phone apps, demon-style proctology, and absurd revisionist satanic rites.
But Sarah isn’t alone… there is a mysterious guest at the party with enough demon-ass-kicking knowledge that Sarah and her friends might just survive the night. However Diana and her blood-thirsty crew of demons aren’t about to let that happen, even if that means having to resurrect every corpse in the cemetery to make sure Sarah and her friends don’t get out alive…
If you thought the first party was a good time, just wait for the AFTER-PARTY.
If we reach our goal, we’ll start working on the film right after our Kickstarter campaign ends. We’re planning to shoot in New Orleans in the fall and release the film in time for Halloween, 2014.
Private investors and production tax credits.
We’re not sure yet, but we’ll get it to you, even if we have to set up our own ftp site. We’ll let you know as soon as we know. Remember that while digital downloads of the earlier Night Of The Demons films can be delivered this summer (2013), any downloads relating to After-Party will coincide with the day and date of the authorized premiere in your country.
It depends. Some rewards can be shipped before we finish the film, others have to wait until the film is released. Some rewards have multiple delivery dates (although we’re going to minimize this to save on shipping). Since almost all rewards get the 1080p digital download of Night Of The Demons: After-Party, and since that won’t be sent until after the film premieres in your local territory and we’re aiming for a Halloween, 2014 release date, we’ve listed the outside delivery date (the date the last item in your reward package will be delivered) as November, 2014. Be aware that if the film premieres after Halloween, your date might be later. We’ll try to get rewards to you as soon as possible.
Because all rewards over $45 involve shipping you something (like a T-shirt and hat).
Your credit card doesn’t get charged.
No. If you’re into it, so are we.
Assuming we reach our goal, shortly after the campaign closes (30 days from our launch).
For those of you who will be traveling to the set, we’ll be in touch once we finalize our start date. But we’re planning a 3 week shoot in New Orleans sometime in late October/November, so be sure you have the flexibility to come if you want to make one of these pledges. Remember that everyone will be very busy during production, especially our director, Tony. We’ll do our best to involve you, but the production schedule has to come first. We’ll have committed the money, so no refunds if you can’t make it. We should be able to give you at least six week’s notice.
-You must be 18; -You must be willing and able to accommodate your schedule to the needs of the production. Depending on the role, this could mean long days and night shoots; -It takes time to make someone up as a demon or a reanimated corpse. Be prepared to spend several hours (at least!) in makeup; -You might be shooting over more than one day; -You must be physically up to the role (in our sole judgment); -You must not be allergic to latex.
We’ll be in touch to arrange a mutually convenient time. Obviously, they won’t happen while we’re in production, but otherwise, it shouldn’t pose too much of a problem. We can’t have them hanging over our heads for too long, so if it hasn’t happened by December, 2014 because of your schedule, it’s not gonna.
We’re using all the money we raise to create the movie. We’ve raised a big chunk of the budget from third parties, but we need to reach our goal to greenlight this picture. The funds are fungible; we can’t really say that your money will go to, say, special effects makeup. Some of it will. Some will pay the salaries of our above and below the line talent. Some goes to license music. If we raise more than our goal, the film will be bigger, bloodier and better.
You send us your local zipcode of where you live and three proposed dates when you want to hold your screening. No, you can’t pick Memorial Day, Labor Day or the fourth of July weekend. In fact, we’d prefer you don’t pick a weekend at all, but we’ll try to work with you if that’s what you want. We’ll locate a theater that’s within 30 minutes driving time and let you know. Then you show up, and you’ll have the theater all to yourself.
We’ll chose up to 5 items in the script that can have a name on it. There are obvious things (like the cemetery) and the not so obvious (the name of a taxi company on a passing taxi). We’ll send out the list to the winners, and they can choose which one is their first preference. If you’re the only one choosing that item, you get it. If multiple people choose the same item, it’s first come, first served (i.e. the first person to respond gets it), and we’ll allocate the remaining items as we see fit.
Just let us know and we’ll make sure they get to the right address.
Kickstarter will let us know your email address; we’ll make arrangements to have the right size shipped to you.
We’d love to have you, but unfortunately, work permit regulations prevent this.
That depends on you. We’re also open to ideas, so if you have one, post it in the comments section below.
In addition to the rewards applicable at the pledge level, each reward gets all of the rewards from the previous “unlimited” level up to and including the $100 reward level. Since each reward includes the next lowest unlimited reward level, the rewards are cumulative, but not duplicative. So, for instance, the $250 pledge level gets:
-A demon records your 15 second outgoing phone message; -Digital Downloads (1080p) of the 1988 and 2009 Night Of The Demons movies and the Night Of The Demons: AP soundtrack -The Night Of The Demons: After-Party Kickstarter T-Shirt and Hat -The digital download of the “DVD Extras” reel -A digital download (1080p) of Night Of The Demons: After-Party and a digital copy of the final shooting script -A full size (one-sheet) Night of the Demons: After-Party poster -An Eternal Damnation certificate in your name, named as a backer on our Facebook page and special thanks in the closing credits - Our eternal gratitude and the right to call yourself a donor to our Kickstarter campaign.
What else would you expect?
No. Each reward stands on its own.
