From Dead Mouse Productions and the Producer of 'Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser & Hellbound: Hellraiser II', comes the new 'Fright Night' documentary 'You're So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night'.

The Story of Fright Night will feature detailed interviews with those who helped shape and create this much loved movie. Guided by Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child's Play, Psycho II, Class of 1984) the makers of this new documentary will raise the stakes and unearth the behind the scenes stories including footage and images from Tom's personal archives.

Fully supported and produced by original Fright Night writer and director Tom Holland, this documentary is the ultimate insight into the making of this cult classic movie as well as a tribute to the late, great Roddy McDowall.

Risks and challenges

Projects like this rely on the fans; this project is a labour of love and a love letter to both Roddy McDowall and the countless Fright Night fans around the world. Without your support this project may not be completed.

Pledges must take into consideration the logistics of producing a 3-hour documentary, our aim is release by March 2016. However as we have already undertaken a large scale project like this with Leviathan - We are only too aware of production delays - for all sorts of reasons. On this project we are very confident especially as we have the support of TOM HOLLAND himself who will also act as Producer and Creative Consultant.

If there are any delays YOU would be informed straight away and kept up-to-date on the projects production.

The biggest reason for production delays is quite simply that the entire crew have day jobs and other projects, however we have factored that into our delivery estimates.

Please note that international deliveries may take longer due to customs and postage regulations.

We have a dedicated team behind this project and are supported by endless members of the cast and crew. Currently all other rewards and delivery are expected for August 2015.
