We’re almost done!
Greetings fans of horror, welcome to the Nightmare Kickstarter page. We set out to craft a film that focuses on style and intensity. It’s a throwback to classic slashers with a modern spin. It is a gut wrenching, non-stop, edge-of-your-seat suspenseful action movie. If you enjoy the simplicity and excitement of films like High Tension and Halloween, Nightmare is the film for you!
We shot the entire movie already. The hardest part is over! All that’s left is the finishing touches that will make Nightmare stand apart from the other indie horror films around it. Sound design and music are some of the most important aspects to any horror film, and they're the biggest hurdle Nightmare has to finish. There is also some color correction and a very small amount of visual effects work that will set Nightmare on top. We have the facilities and designers set in place and ready to work. All we need is the financing to get them started.
This film is a passion project, pursued from a dream that it doesn’t take millions of dollars or huge stars to make a great movie; it takes talent, heart and ambition. Our team set out with a micro-budget to make an action packed, art house horror film. What we came out with was something stronger and more powerful than anyone could have anticipated.
We had an arduous casting process, finding talented actors was the most important part of Nightmare. With the simplicity of the storyline, and the action center stage, we knew that the actor’s performances would be what carried the movie. So we found a group of extremely talented performers that took Nightmare to a whole new level.
Nightmare was an immense achievement considering it’s budgetary constraints, and when it is all said and done, it will be our calling card as a production team. After post production, we will sell the movie and pursue bigger projects. If we can make what we need to finish this film, you will have helped a crew of extremely talented individuals in jumpstarting what will be a long and prolific career in the film industry.
Want to know more? How about the story?
Nightmare takes place on Halloween night, where we find our main character, Lori, having trouble fitting in at a costume party. Her friend agrees to take her home when she just doesn’t feel like being around people. Little does Lori know, that someone has followed her and her friend back home.
That night, there’s a mysterious knock on the door, Lori opens it to find a stranger – asking for help. She refuses, and closes the door in the man’s face. Then, later that night, the same stranger enters their home, and abducts Lori from her own bed.
Lori wakes up in a strange place, the Killer’s basement. Evidence of other victim’s plight surrounds her – bloodstains on the wall, fingernails in the pavement, and chains hanging everywhere to hold his prey captive. The house fills with screams as he finishes off one victim before moving on to Lori.
What will Lori do? How will she escape this seemingly hopeless situation? And if she were to escape, what would the killer do to get her back? Only by watching the intense experience of Nightmare will you find out Lori and her Killer’s fate.
