CURTAIN is an independent horror feature film shot by a crew of just four people in New York City and the woods of New Jersey. It's a Twilight Zone-style story about a burnt-out nurse who moves into a new apartment in search of a simpler life. But when her shower curtains begin to disappear through a mysterious portal she discovers there's no such thing as simple in this world...or any other.
GOOD NEWS: THE MOVIE IS SHOT!
BAD NEWS: THE FILMMAKERS ARE BROKE!
After spending our entire personal savings to create Curtain, we have run out of money and have been forced back into our day jobs. As much fun as it would be to live off a diet of only ramen noodles until we save enough money for post-production YOU could help raise $20,000 NOW!
Once $20,000 is achieved we'll carve into the meat of post-production. A handful of highly skilled professionals (who need to be paid) are ready and waiting to tackle:
- COLOR GRADING
- VISUAL EFFECTS
- SOUND DESIGN/MIXING
- ORIGINAL SCORING
All you need to do is check out our fantastic selection of rewards, choose one and -- BOOM -- Curtain is one step closer to the finish line!

Thanks so much for checking out our Kickstarter campaign and we hope you'll become apart of the Curtain team!
Risks and challenges
If the $20,000 goal is reached then Curtain will be done this year and submitted to film festivals and the filmmakers will breath a sigh of relief. If the goal is NOT reached then the movie gets nothing and it's ramen noodles until we save $20,000 ourselves. We would love to avoid the latter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
