About this project

"Darkness is Coming" by Kevin MacLeod...because kids can be creepy

He has sent me to … proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed.   Isaiah 61:1

A Hard Hitting Supernatural Thriller

Not of This World, along with Bill Myers (creator of “The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle,” and the “McGee and Me” series) are in the final phase of raising funds for the full-length feature film, Forbidden Doors. Much of the money for the film has already been raised. 

Now it’s up to us to raise the final $400,000! 

If we had 1 goal, it'd be this: 

JUST. BE. REAL.  

In writing the books and script for Forbidden Doors, Bill Myers drew upon the interviews of real people...people like the head of the CIA Psychic Research Division, the "Son of Sam" Serial Killer, Satanists, demoniacs, Christians, and your average Joe.

We've seen the film where the priest "tries" to cast out demons with his holy water and crucifix. We've seen the movie where the demons win and everyone else loses. And verily, verily, we've seen the lame, preachy ones where the pastor regurgitates scripture at the desperate church goer who's just looking for truth...I mean, how many times have we heard Psalm 23 quoted right before somebody gets killed? 

But what does the REAL look like and why Forbidden Doors Movie?

"The outlook on any morality can be changed through TV viewing."  J.L. SINGER - YALE UNIVERSITY

Most of our Hollywood peers create brilliant, jaw-dropping motion pictures for fame and fortune.  We're producing a heart-pounding film to change the world.

"The influence of the church which used to be all-powerful has been usurped by film. Films and television tell us the way we conduct our lives, what is right and wrong.”  GEORGE LUCAS 

We're done watching lies telling us that Christians are hate-filled hypocrites and mindless morons. We’re through being told good is evil and evil is good. We’re using the power of cinema to show the real truth . . . the awesome power and unending love of Jesus Christ.

More than ever there’s a hunger for the supernatural. The enemy is trying to fill that void by seducing teens with a counterfeit love. We’re exposing that lie by revealing the ultimate Lover – a God so passionate and dedicated that He would die for us…

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” JESUS CHRIST

In motion pictures, high-level entertainment is always the key. There must be plenty of chills and thrills to keep the audience glued to the screen. But in the end they will walk away with the truth. For as Jesus said, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

So join the battle ... let your voice be heard!

So why Kickstarter?

All or Nothing, baby!

With Kickstarter, should a project fail to meet its fundraising goal by the end of the campaign, the film receives none of the funds pledged.

We could fund a movie the traditional, Hollywood way, but we like the idea of you being the one to help us bring Forbidden Doors to the big screen!

2014 has had an unusually large number of "faith-based" films. Some work, some are cheesy. Forbidden Doors has teeth. It is not a film you'll be embarrassed to take your friends to.

 So pick your reward, and let's make this happen!

Risks and challenges

Although we’ll be keeping a careful record of every contributor and their rewards, remember that several of the items listed cannot be given out until the motion picture is complete. These would include things like the soundtrack, DVD of the movie, signed artwork, etc. We are aiming for a release date of October 31, 2015, but because this is an international production, there are a thousand and one things that can delay or postpone it. Nevertheless, the project will be produced. It’s too powerful of a story not to be.
