WHY DO WE NEED HELP?

Thanks for taking the time to read this! Getting the project this far has been a massive up-hill struggle but worth every moment. Thanks to ALL the cast & crew who have made it possible! 

Welcome to our new friends and extended horror family. JP.x

So where we are up to now?: 95% of principal photography has been completed on UHF but we need to return to the location for two days to shoot a couple of integral scenes that got dropped on the principal photography (everything was against us obviously!); We also want to expand on one particular practical FX shot (more gore) with Janette Rawstron lead FX supervisor and shoot. Finally we want to spend some money on a professional sound design, you know what the say about 51% sound!

Please help spread the word THIS IS A GREAT MOVIE!

THE LOCATION:

Wythenshawe Hall (14th most haunted house in Britain)
Wythenshawe Hall (14th most haunted house in Britain)

ABOUT 'UNTITLED HORROR FILM'

When an ambitious Filmmaker, J.P, and his small documentary team arrive at Netherwood House, the 13th most haunted house in Britain, the team hope to witness some evidence of true supernatural phenomena. 

None of the team, including presenter, Heidi Slater, are aware that J.P’s motives are far more sinister. 

That is, until the Magick surrounding Nether-Wood House has consumed them all. 

The film asks the question - What is more frightening? - Possible psychic phenomena or Human nature at its worst?

GHOSTS?

Well, Wythenshawe Hall supposedly is the 14th most haunted house in Britain. We did a recent recce of the location and during the edit were very surprised to see some anomalies, as this footage show at 2.32 time mark, something is going on!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Our main challenge has always been to make the best horror feature film we could with what we have at our disposal - mainly passion, dedication, local resources and talent. We have climbed many mountains already to have shot 95% of the film, J.P. has personally sold his comic-collections and film-equipment to put into the films funding. We just need a bit of help to finish this film.

Will UHF reach the cinema? Who knows? All we can do is promise to deliver a film that has a great story, cast, location and practical FX to the highest of standards in order that it ticks enough boxes to increases its chances of a theatrical release.
