Vampires! Horror! — The Movie

$6,534

80

Vampires! Horror! was conceived on a road trip from Minneapolis to Wisconsin Dells in the summer of 1999. Co-creators Beau Hays and Dennis Curley hatched this campy story about a small Midwestern town and its inhabitants overrun by vampires (following an ancient prophecy), soldiers (pursuing a 200-year-old secret war against the vampires), a nosy reporter, and a hapless toymaker and his very pregnant wife.

The songs and the script followed over the next few years, and in 2004 the boys presented their first reading of the show. Two more readings followed, and Vampires! Horror! saw its first fully-staged production in October of 2010 (presented by Table Salt Productions).

Local filmmaker and longtime friend Dave Carey was in the audience, and proposed to the boys that they get together and put it all down on film. Vampires! Horror! — The Movie was born!

The filming is already under way, as you can see by the trailer posted above. But we need your help to make it across the finish line! We will be spending several upcoming weekends in Watertown (South Dakota) filming our outdoor sequences, and the cost of transporting, housing, and feeding the cast and crew is daunting. Plus, the dancers' continuing demands for vegan alternatives on the craft services table is starting to put a strain on our already tight budget!

We invite you to become a very special part of this endeavor!
