 North Woods is a horror film set in modern times, specifically Fall 2006, but is shot, stylized & paced like a horror film from the 70's & 80's. It is a slasher film that has a strong influence from Giallo films (italian horror murder mysteries which are originally what inspired slasher films) and very much embraces the spirit of such independent horror films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), Phantasm (1979) and The Evil Dead (1981).

It also possesses a very surreal nature to it, akin to the style of David Lynch, who is most famous for his show, Twin Peaks.

But don't let that fool you. Despite its' sense of nostalgic familiarity, it flips many of the old tropes & cliches on their heads & will keep you on the edge of your seat, not knowing what is bound to happen next...

The plot of the film goes as such:

From within the woods, a blood splattered young man, John Prescott, runs out in front of a car, terrified and muttering gibberish. Enter Dr. Pamela Alley, an esteemed psychologist who works at the local police department, and Morris West, a homicide detective & Pam's secret lover, who have just been assigned the boy's case. As the teen begins telling his diabolical tale of a local weekend vacation gone horribly wrong, it becomes clear that nothing is ever what it seems when a very troubled substitute teacher, with a webbed past of nightmares, emerges as the center of the proceedings. What keys does she hold to the nearly phantasmic events surrounding the area for the last several years?

When it comes to the woods in Brahams County... sometimes digging for answers digs your grave...

 ...And if you go in...
...you won't come out!

Featuring legendary indie horror/b-movie scream queens, Debbie Rochon & Lynn Lowry, North Woods guarantees you an authentic visceral, yet surreal experience straight from the era where grindhouse slashers & Drive-in Horror relentlessly ruled the cinemas!

================================

The film is a joint venture between Macabre Films, headed by the film's co-writer, director & lead actor, Chris Moore, and Flowtac Entertainment, headed by the film's co-writer, editor & associate producer, Jason Kasper. It is currently 75% filmed, with an aim for a Fall 2015 release that would feature a limited theatrical run, film festival circuits, video-on-demand platforms (Vimeo, Amazon, iTunes, VHX, etc), DVD Video & Redbox rental.

The production will be heading to Jackson, Mississippi in order to wrap filming around late February. But in order to ensure that it is completed properly, the film currently requires assistance with receiving minimal funding.  Allow me to break down where this money would be applied.

Keep in mind that this is the bare minimum that will be needed. Any further donations will be pushed into post production services, such as audio mixing & music composition, as well as going towards getting the film rated by the MPAA so its availability for limited theatrical release can increase (Most movie theaters/movie theater chains will not accept a film that is unrated).

  Of course, we don't expect you to walk away empty-handed if you choose to help us. In fact, we have some truly killer perks being offered that are quite a steal!

Risks and challenges

As with anything, there will always be challenges. It is extremely difficult to garner attention for any independent film project these days. There's just so much out there that it's easy to get pushed to the side.

But the nice thing is that there is already a film in place, that is nearly complete. There is plenty to show for the hard work that has already been put into it. Due to this, no one will be donating blindly to only a mere concept.
We also are looking into securing promotions from big name cult film critics like Job Bob Briggs, Elvira & Peaches Christ. They possess a strong fanbase that would most definitely help get the wheels turning in regards for North Woods.

So even with the treacherous seas that make up the indie horror cinema world, there is a definite plan in place in order to draw attention to this film.
