About

The Forest Hills is a short horror film, directed by Scott Goldberg, that touches on important subjects such as racism, society and rape, all wrapped up in a haunting horror story. We are raising funds for special effects will compliment the effectiveness of this film. $5,000 will allow us to compliment our funds and release a compelling story that will chill viewers to the bone. Yet "The Forest Hills" does not rely solely on shock value as do many horror films; it blends an intriguing story, a haunting premise, and the stunning and priceless abandoned scenery of the eastern coast, featuring locations such as Welwyn Preserve and various other scenic places on Long Island.

Inspired by classic horror such as George A. Romero's Day of the Dead, and Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, we look to create art that pushes the envelope, rejecting mainstream culture and beliefs. Our goal has been, and will continue to be, to create inspirational, ground-breaking art that promotes the awareness of our society. We are looking to distance ourselves from the mainstream, and looking to promote intelligent, thoughtful thinking to American society. We do not make "protest" films, we do not preach, we do not force our views upon others, we are bi-partisan and absolutely do not support a political party. We merely work to provide alternative ways of thinking to our audience.

You can view one of our latest films "Loss of Hope", which we shot in 2008 on a five-hundred dollar budget: http://www.lossofhopefilm.com. It is a seven minute end-of-the-world film concept featuring Friday the 13th Part III actor Paul Kratka.

Our most recent work can be viewed at http://www.mrmullenfilm.com.

Any help that you can offer is greatly appreciated. We believe that in five years, our filmmaking style will be one that inspires others. Any help that we receive, no matter how large or small, will be remembered, years from now.

Sincerely,

Scott Goldberg
Mark Nadolski
