"Dr. Bonesaw" is like Grey's Anatomy with a serial murderer on the loose, and we plan to go a little crazy and have a lot of fun making it.

About this project

What is Dr. Bonesaw?
"Dr. Bonesaw" is the first horror feature that will be produced by the movie villain's victims (that's you guys!). It's Grey's Anatomy with a serial murderer on the loose. As a sexy and promiscuous young medical staff begin falling victim to Bonesaw's blade, the body count will include plenty of great deaths throughout the hospital, and those victims will be played by Kickstarters. The movie will be 90 minutes of gross-you-out gore, golden one-liners and a hot murderous maniac with a bonesaw hand, and we want you to be more than just someone who gives us money - we want you to be part of the movie.
Who are we?
We're Lead Balloon: filmmakers and lifelong horror junkies who just completed a microbudget supernatural horror feature called The Echo Game (http://www.echogamemovie.com), and we want to make an honest-to-god super gorey slasher movie like the ones that terrified us when we were too young to be watching them. We love Roger Corman, Wes Craven, and the great splatterhouse flicks from the 70s and 80s. We think making movies is incredible fun, we want to make a feature, and we want to involve the people who help us make it in any way we can.

    ICONIC VICTIM: Everything in the standard package, but also a guaranteed slot on the commentary track, invite to the table read, and variant poster. All of Bonesaw's victims will go out in style, but the Iconic Victims will get truly elaborate and creatively sticky ends, on par with Johnny Depp being eaten by the bed in Nightmare on Elm Street. The creative team is going to pull out all the stops to ensure it's the kind of thing that makes it to Youtube.
