What the MUCK?
MUCK is a complete, finished film that will be in theaters Friday the 13th, March 2015. This Kickstarter project is to fund MUCK: Feast of Saint Patrick, the prequel that promises to be even bigger, bloodier and better than the original!
MUCK movies boast dangerous stunts, practical effects, no CGI, and are shot in "Bloody Stunning" 4K Ultra HD!
Why not use CGI? Because I have no interest in directing computers. CGI never looks as good as when real people are putting it all on the line. Like this...
Practical effects are more of a challenge for me as a director, like a problem to be solved. How can we do this full-body burn, make it look realistic, but not actually burn my lead or his stunt double? How can we throw this actress through a picture window and make it look awesome without sending her to the ER? With CGI there's basically nothing you can't do with a sophisticated enough computer. That's great, but there's no challenge for me there as a filmmaker.
That's why all our stunts, all the blood, and all the effects are done in-camera and with practical effects. It just plain looks better. It's more authentic. That's my vision for MUCK.
The Creepers of MUCK
The bad guy. Every horror movie revolves around the villain.
Say what you will about the heroics of an Ash Williams or an Ellen Ripley. Truth is, there's not much to them until the Necronomicon shows up to ruin everyone's day, or some face-hugging perfect organism volunteers to redecorate your chest parts.
That’s why it's no surprise that the most frequent question we’ve been getting during the Muck Kickstarter campaign is “Who/what is you bad guy?” And while we can’t say what they are exactly, we can tell you what they are not.
They’re not sluggish zombies, weepy vampires, cartoonishly macho werewolves, or ghosts bitter at a life misspent. They don’t lurk in your nightmares or inside your television, and they aren’t alien clowns in the storm drain under your sleepy East coast town.
Even if we can’t tell our fans everything about our bad guys, we can show them with the above exclusive, never-before-seen clip from MUCK.
But don’t just take my word for how awesome MUCK is and how great the prequel will be. Listen to one of our exciting new cast members, cosplay superstar LeeAnna Vamp!
Why Choose This Cast?
Kane Hodder is one of the most respected names in the horror community, and that's the public that Muck serves- true horror fans. As soon as I finished my script I knew I had to get Kane Hodder to play the Grawesome Crutal character.
For the other cast members, it was important to me to cast young, hungry, up-and-coming types, because that's who we are as a production company. Bryce Draper and Lachlan Buchanan are perfect examples of guys on the make that as a film franchise we want on our team. I wasn't going to overpay for some name that was big three years ago but sacrifice the quality of my film for a little more name recognition. When people see Muck I think they'll agree that every casting choice fits their role perfectly and they'll appreciate that we chose to go in that direction.
What Makes 4K Ultra HD Different?
The difference between 4K Ultra HD and previous gen HD is almost as great as between Standard and High Def. A film in 4K is noticeably more immersive than inferior technologies, but not in that hokey or cartoonish way that 3-D sometimes looks. Every color is richer in 4K. The blacks are deeper, too, which really lends itself to horror.
MUCK movies are filmed on the same cameras used to film The Avengers, and we mix our sound at the same studio where they do the X-Men movies.
4K is the next iteration in digital, so if this technology is available, why not utilize it?
Horror icon Kane Hodder and "MUCK" girl Constance model a few of our exciting rewards:
The “MUCK” trilogy is sexy, hyper-violent, and original; playing out like a love letter to horror fans everywhere. ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT will distribute “MUCK” next St. Patrick’s Day. The three “MUCK” films bookend each other, as they all take place on Cape Cod over just three days, the middle day being Saint Patrick’s Day. At the core of these movies is a commitment to practical effects, incredible stunts, no CGI, and all those involved take some kind of risk, whether getting thrown through a huge picture window or giving some spare cash to be part of a new movement in horror.
New members of the "MUCK" cast - Playboy's Playmates of the Year 2013 and 2014 Raquel Pomplun and Kennedy Summers proudly display our rewards:
We didn't just complete the filming of “MUCK” ... we “killed” it! No green screens, no stages, we really dragged our 2 RED Epic cameras out into the swamps, through the mud, water, and vines with bugs, critters, marsh sharks (yes, there are sharks in the marsh) to shoot in native 4K for Ultra HD. “MUCK” boasts dangerous stunts: in-water fighting, full-body fire burns, and high-impact falls.
Now, it’s time to take the “MUCK” trilogy to hotter fires, higher falls, and deeper into the mud. That’s why we’re here, to keep pushing the boundaries of independent filmmaking and the horror genre into the next chapter of the “MUCK” trilogy. Despite numerous offers from production companies and studios, we won’t accept any “studio money” for the prequel, because, in the words of the “MUCK” creator, “Studio horror movies suck and I won’t take easy money that will force me to make horror movies for studios; I want to make horror movies for horror fans.”
One of the smaller, yet equally awesome rewards we offer. Cheers!
