About

It's a story about revenge, murder, & trick-or-treating.

THAT HALLOWEEN is a short horror film that tells the origin story of The Marsters House, that house at the end of the street where all that stuff happened all those years ago.

A true passion project for writer/director Mike Hickey, it's the realization of a concept that's taken years to come to fruition. While it's great to be lucky enough to work in film and television, for the past few years Mike has been tied up helping other people with their projects. Now he wants his turn.

THE TEAM

Helping Mike get the film to screens is a team of professionals with years of industry experience.

Andrew Winter, the film's producer, is a graduate of the ATVF program at Sheridan College. With a wide breadth of skills Andrew is integral to the team. His producing experience includes the acclaimed short film "Of The Essence".

Duncan De Young is a professional photographer and cinematographer based in St. John's. His work has been featured on Majumder Manor, Republic of Doyle, and various provincial and national advertising campaigns.

Our VFX Supervisor, Mark Perry, began his career crushing peoples hopes and dreams in the financial industry. Growing weary of such pedantry, he turned his hobby of filmmaking into a career. Currently he's part of the producing team of INFINITE POSSIBILITIES, a Top 15 finalist in CBC's ComedyCoup.

Barry Fratelli will be composing the score. One of the first people to sign on to the film, his support has helped push the project forward, and as a huge fan of The Fratellis Mike is incredibly excited to get to work with Barry, and he's even been able to listen to "Chelsea Dagger" for the first time since the Blackhawks beat the Bruins in the Cup Finals.

Speaking of hockey, one of our principal actors is none other than former NHLer Terry Ryan, now the author of "Tales of a First Round Nothing". Terry has appeared on REPUBLIC OF DOYLE and Zach Snyder's DAWN OF THE DEAD.

THE PLAN

We're doing what we can to make this the best film we can, but we need your help. We want the film to have a very specific and stylized look and feel and that requires set dressing, wardrobe, make-up, lighting, special FX, and lot of other elements.

Your contributions will go towards those costs, as well as production fees and insurance, paying and feeding the cast & crew, post production expenses, marketing & distribution, and making sure we're able to see the project through to the end and provide the backer perks we've promised.

Risks and challenges

The challenges that stand in the way of making the film are related to our financing.

Our timeline is getting tight and our intention is to shoot the film before this Kickstarter campaign ends. That's a big leap of faith as it means taking on the costs before knowing the success of the project.
