While returning home from their Spring Break vacation, wealthy siblings Paul and Marilyn find themselves stranded at a desolate truck-stop along the back roads up Upstate New York. Before long, they discover that a strange creature is being held in a cage behind the local auto shop, and the shop's mechanic plans on feeding them to the beast. In their attempt to escape, Paul and Marilyn fall prey to a group of homicidal rednecks bent on preserving the secret of this bloodthirsty monster.

Clay DuMaw first dreamt up Get Out Alive in early 2010 while living in Syracuse, NY. It was a thirty page screenplay about several people trapped in a motel during an alien invasion. A lot has changed since then. The sci-fi idea was dropped in favor of monsters, murderers, bear traps, blood, and of course, a chain saw. Several re-writes later and the project has become a tribute to classic films like The Evil Dead, Friday the 13th and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

The film is to be shot using the Canon XL-H1 hi-definition camcorder, implementing a gritty style similar to films likes 28 Days Later and Open Water. Having a minimal number of actors will significantly cut costs, so the script has only four main characters. Most scenes will occur at three locations, a diner, a motel and an auto repair shop, all of which will be carefully shot to look like they're near each other. Filming is scheduled to take place throughout July of 2011

This film is designed to please fans of the horror genre. If it isn’t made, moviegoers everywhere will be deprived of this bone chilling experience!

Our mission is to produce a feature-length cult classic with such impact that it becomes broadly promoted by word-of-mouth alone.

Most of our budget is secured, but we’re trying to scrape together a little extra for some better equipment. Your generous donations will go toward light-stands, microphones, cables and other odds & ends that will aid in making this film aesthetically pleasing. In other words, you’ll be responsible for the quality of this movie. Hopefully we’ll surpass our goal, but no matter what we raise, this film will be made. Rewards for your contributions range from a special thanks to a signed copy of the director’s personal script.

Spread the word! Even if you can’t donate, share our link with your friends and family! www.getoutalivemovie.com www.facebook.com/getoutalive www.youtube.com/getoutalivemovie
