Become a backer of an independent horror movie with The Inquisitor. The film is set in the 1800's and will be produced in Spain.
What is The Inquisitor?
The Inquisitor project is a new planned horror film set in the Napoleonic era. The new horror movie features an original script and is based on a graphic novel created by Richard Kelly. We have chosen Spain as the location for the production of the project giving the advantages of film production incentives in Spain. If we can be given the chance to produce this film with your help we will pledge to reward all supporters and an invite to follow and be involved in the production process of The Inquisitor.
So what’s the story?
Gypsies Alfred Pallino and his two daughters, Gina and Maria, with friend Teresa Dalini travel from camp to the next town to hear the church sermon of the Archbishop Francesco, during the Napoleonic war. As Alfred Pallino leaves the three girls in charge of the cart and in selling their wares, they are kidnapped and taken to the cell of the church. Once in the cell, they become aware of a female prisoner in the cell next to them. This prisoner escapes by killing a guard and frees them all. The three girls run through dark corridors to find a way of escaping the church and avoid Helene. Helene kills many more in a blood thirsty rampage through the church and the Archbishop Francesco orders the guards to find her. As the girls try to escape both Helene and the guards, what will happen when all three parties catch up with each other and the body count rises? Where will the film be set? The film will be set in Spain given that the tax breaks for film investments in the country are highly beneficial to the project. Spain is notorious for its new horror movies, and the Inquisitor will be no different. This low budget independent horror movie will combine production techniques seen in other independent horror movies, which often perform very well in the market, with this original story idea.
The filming will take place in a small village in Spain and the majority of production will take place in an ancient church. The cast is small:
Theresa Dalini- teenage girl Maria Pallino – teenage girl Gina Pallino - sister Alfred Pallino- Father Pablo – Shepherd Lorenzo – Pablo’s father Beggars Brother Paulo (monk) Archbishop Francesco Brother Simon Helene- Female prisoner Guard commander Guards A female customer
After the initial production, we will distribute the film into cinemas across Europe and the USA. Now that we have got you as an investor in the film, we hope to be given the chance to submit the film for awards and screenings at film festivals all around the world. The film will be released as a DVD as well as online digital streaming and download options.

What will be done with the money?
We’ll use the money for production and distribution costs. Filming will take place on location, the cast is yet to be confirmed.
Will this film get made?
Not without you! You, the person reading this right now, every penny will count in order to realise this film. It’s a unique and different story line, bringing in aspects of horror and independent film to produce a new and exciting project. Any backer will have involvement in this project and the money we raise here will be fundamental in the production and post production costs of this project. Any backer means we have a ready made audience for the film, and hopefully the word will spread about this new horror movie coming soon.

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is getting the film fully funded and distributed. The 250K will be a great start for this project. It will help towards production costs such as the actors, equipment, editing, locations and costumes. We know there is nothing like this out there, graphic novel films are usually big budget hollywood blockbusters, something like this has never been seen before.
If we can’t get the funding for this film, we won’t be able to fulfill some of the reward items.
The film making is a long process and we are not sure of which challenges and bumps we may face but the goal is clear. Make an enjoyable film for you to enjoy and feel proud to be a part of.
