THE UNDONE is a psychological horror film about a young couple named Stanley and Sarah who take to a cabin so that Stanley can work on his second book. Sarah tags along with him trying to save the marriage. When they get there, series of strange events begin to unfold.
Our goal with the undone is to make a thrilling psychological horror film that suits both Art house cinephiles and horror genre fans. It will be a film that challenges you both physically and emotionally. It will also contain characters that wont allow you to feel safe or comfortable....ever.
We think too many horror films rob the audiences by not being interesting enough or allowing you to talk about the film a week later. Unlike most horror films, we promise The Undone will have less jump scares, and more of a story. The Undone is a bold and unique film,because it is not your run-of-the-mill horror film or run-of-the-mill film in general. We are confident in our abilities as film makers to give you something special and refreshing. But, first things first; we can't do any of this without your help which, will be greatly appreciated.
The visual inspiration and tone for The Undone was inspired by the David Lynch masterpiece "Mulholland Drive" and the beloved horror classic Stanley Kubrick's "The Shinning"
WHY YOU SHOULD BACK THE FILM
- The goal of this campaign is to raise $16,000. Although this may seem like a lot of money, it is nothing compared to the world of filmmaking. We're fortunate enough to be able to cover some of the costs, but to move forward and finish the film, we need your help.
- Getting funding for a strong female lead horror film, where the character isn't dumbed down, or running in heels, is unfortunately in this day and age incredibly hard.
- Filming of The Undone will begin in the summer of 2016. The goal is to submit the film to major film festivals such as, Sundance, Cannes and the AFI Film Festival.
- Here is a chance to be a part of something unique. Something that honestly has never been done before in the horror genre.
THE UNDONE is a horror film that is told in a bold, new, and exciting way that I personally can promise you has never been done before. The movie has it's terrifying moments, but that's not only what it brings to the table. It will also have a complex character study on two characters, Stanley and Sarah, with a commentary on today's relationships. THE UNDONE at its core, is a relationship story tossed into a blender with the technique of Hitchcock, the strangeness of Mulholland Drive and the visual language of Paul Thomas Anderson.
The relationships explored in the film are not romanticized or made unrealistic. In fact, they are the opposite. It is grounded in reality; It is showing the truth, that settling with someone who you don't love and who doesn't love you back, is equally as terrifying as seeing something paranormal.
As the Director, you have my word that while watching The UNDONE, you will never feel safe, comfortable, or at ease. You will be immersed into the story and feel your heart beating fast with Sarah or your mind racing with Stanley.
The wonderful cast and crew of The Undone is formed by both people just like you. We are the guys and girls that catch the late night showings, freak out over that certain tracking shot and obsess over that writing style.
So we ask you! As lovers of cinema to help us achieve this goal. We will hold our end of the bargain by scaring the heck out of you, challenging your mind, and giving you a great film.
