++ $100 is just an easy goal to get us started! We're trying to raise as much as possible to promote the film, enter more festivals, mail screeners, etc. ++

All practical FX. No CGI. No shaky cam.
We need your help to get this post-apocalyptic monster out into the world. The money you pledge will be for entry fees and shipping costs to submit to more festivals (we'd like to get into as many as possible, but they add up quick), making more screeners for reviews as well as mailing them (each costs $5 with the DVD manufacturing and shipping), advertising and promoting the film online, etc. Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated even if it's only referring a friend. Since the film already has an IMDb page, you can get your credits as soon as your pledge is collected. The final cut is already done too so it'll just be updated with your credits, and then you'll quickly get your rewards. You don't have to worry whether the project will be finished.
What's the plot?
Is this just a gore fest?
Absolutely not. We have a lot of makeup FX and blood in this movie, but I think this genre works best when you actually care about the characters. I love Aliens and John Carpenter's The Thing not just because of the amazing practical FX but because of the unforgettable characters like Ripley, Hicks, Hudson, MacReady, Childs, Blair, Garry, etc. The goal was to make this character-driven but still with a lot of action and horror.
Why is the forest still green if it's post-apocalyptic?
Is this just a crappy low budget movie?
Haven't you already done some crowdfunding?
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thanks!

Risks and challenges
Normally, just shooting the movie would be a great challenge, but since the final cut has already been completed and only has to be updated with your new credits, there isn't any risk of the project not being finished. In other words, we already filmed everything, edited it, hired a composer, recorded the score, did the sound design and mixing, designed the DVD, made the special features, etc. so delivering your rewards won't be a problem. We just have to reach our funding goal. Then the real hurdle is getting the word out about the movie, but we're making more progress every day, and with your help, we'll be able to do a lot more that will make a big difference: more festival wins, more positive reviews, more promotion and marketing, etc.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
