About

Hello. My name is Mark W. Curran with NIGHTWATCHER FILMS, based in Los Angeles. Though I've written and produced a number of short films and theatrical productions, It's been a lifelong dream of mine to write, produce and direct my own feature horror film.

With the help of friends (and my now maxed out credit cards) I've completed shooting a feature film from a screenplay I've written called ABANDONED DEAD.

It's a psychological horror story about a young security guard trapped in a spooky run down medical clinic, terrorized by paranormal forces which threaten to overtake her.

The film has some very good experienced actors in it, including JUDITH O' DEA, from George A. Romero's original cult classic, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. It's a stylish film-noir type thriller that I know you are going to love.

Now that we've finished shooting our movie, we'd like to invite you to take part in helping us complete the editing and get this movie released.

If you would like to help bring this independently produced feature film to a screen near you, won't you help by pledging now, and taking advantage of some really great perks we have lined up for you. As with all things on KICKSTARTER, the more you can give, the more you will get.

So join us now by contributing to our campaign - and become part of the ABANDONED DEAD team!

Risks and challenges

One of the great things about seeking funding for a project that has already been filmed is that it eliminates the risk of not being completed. We do not anticipate any roadblocks or delays once the project has been edited.
