Scream Park is a retro style 80s horror film about an amusement park closing for the last time. The owner, played by Doug Bradley (Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II), devises a scheme to have a pair of killers commit gruesome murders in the park as a publicity stunt to sell tickets. The victims are a group of employees partying in the park after hours.
About The Film
The film came about with the desire to produce a feature length horror film. Scream Park is a response to the currently Hollywood trend of remakes, rehashes, sequels, prequels, and the desire to see an original tale come to the screen. It also celebrates the golden age of the slasher film (1980s) and the bloody, light-hearted camp of it all. We love those movies, so why not make one (even if we're 25 years late)?
The project started as a small one, with limited scope and scale. However, it quickly grew and suddenly we found ourselves on set with Doug Bradley (playing a deliciously evil character, of course). The wonderful Conneaut Lake Park, Pennsylvania became involved and will be the setting for our fictional theme park. It provides the perfect backdrop for our little slasher film.
Skinny Puppy lead singer Ogre (REPO: The Genetic Opera, The Devil's Carnival) has also joined the project, taking the role of a murderous mountain man. The cast is rounded out with talented Pittsburgh local actors, including up and comer Wendy Wygant.
About Our Campaign
We're greenlit and ready to go. Production begins Friday the 13th of April and continues on until the end of May. We're looking for $5,000 to go into post-production and get us across the finish line. We've got a great musical composer putting together a full orchestral score and we need to make sure we've got the best sound effects for each and every screen death. We want to make sure Scream Park looks and sounds the best it possibly can. We'd also love to feed everybody! Fed crew members are happy crew members. Every dollar donated makes the project better!
In exchange, we're offering up some great merchandise from the movie -- some of it signed by our awesome cast. Contribute if you love horror movies. Contribute if you support independent filmmaking. Contribute if you love Doug Bradley or Ogre. We'll love you back for it.
Thank you everyone in advance, and thank you for even just checking us out here on Kickstarter. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates, as we'll be posting stuff regularly when production begins on April 13. For more, visit www.screamparkmovie.com If you donate, tell friends and family you donated and what for. Spreading the word about our film is as important.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
If I Donate, When Do I Get My Stuff? Excellent question. The estimated delivery dates are listed below the contribution amounts. If you win the iPad, we'll contact you (to pick a color) and send it out ASAP. Everything else pretty much is pending the completion of the film.
Can You Exceed The Goal? Absolutely! Any additional money goes to the same place as the $5,000 -- the screen! A little extra money means a little extra blood spray, an extra take or two, or a few extra smiles.
What If You (Gulp) Don't Make the Goal? Kickstarter is an all or nothing campaign. If we don't reach $5,000, we don't get anything. We're already going into productionso there's no risk of losing Scream Park. However, we'll have to make certain sacrifices...
Wait, Is This Real? You Guys Aren't On IMDB! We'd love to be on IMDB! Unfortunately, we're unable to post Scream Park to the Internet Movie Database until we finish the film (their rules) because we don't have an established production company behind us. This is Proto Media's, the company behind the film, first project.
