In this chilling, psychological horror, five friends embark on a road trip but something goes terribly wrong, setting off a series of terrifying events that forces them to Exit 13, an exit that's hauntingly familiar. Soon after, an unforeseen event occurs trapping the group inside an abandoned cabin. But this isn't just any cabin, and it seems the dark and evil past has been re-opened.

With the recent passing of his mother and desertion of his father, Adam Payson is drifting into a dark and dangerous place, isolating himself from the one who loves him most, his girlfriend Madison. Unable to get through to him, she turns to Adam's best friend Brandon for help.

Jealousy and rage begin to spread like a deadly virus as tensions run high, and through many twists and turns, secrets unravel and relationships are pushed to their breaking point. As a result, Madison experiences a disturbing encounter but when she awakes, the real nightmare has only begun; A member of the group is suddenly missing and in a race to find them and escape the demonic evil that is tormenting its new occupants, a shocking and deadly secret is discovered, one that could make this exit their last…

DIRECTOR

ANDRETTI DANTE was born in San Antonio, TX he first found his love for films when he saw the film Back To The Future at the early age of 7 years old.  After graduating high school Andretti would later attend film school at Full Sail University in Orlando, FL. After graduation Andretti went on to work for Fox News in San Antonio, TX where he became a key member in the San Antonio Spurs pre-game and post game shows, as well as directed numerous local commercials. Andretti left Fox News to focus more on film making, where he then moved to Southern California and has been leaving a mark on the Indie film community and has been entertaining the masses through his making of numerous short films, dozens of music videos, and a few feature films. 

WRITERS

SHAUN FLETCHER is an American actor and screenwriter. He graduated from Florida International University in Miami, receiving a degree in Liberal Studies/Psychology. Originally from FL, Shaun made the long journey to L.A. in order to pursue his love and passion for the arts. Since being here Shaun has worked on a multitude of short films as well as multiple Independent features.

HOLLY HANSON is an American actress and screenwriter. She attended New England Institute of Art where she majored in Advertising. Originally from Boston, she has studied and acted in various Independent films as well as multiple short films.  Once she fine tuned her art, Holly decided it was time to move to L.A. in order to develop her passion even more. 

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND "EXIT 13"

With regards to Exit 13, we have deployed scare tactics that pay homage to such classics as The Exorcist, The Shining, The Amityville Horror, Wolf Creek, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Elements from Kubrick to Hitchcock can be found intertwined within this film, yet all ideas are original. Rather than relying on blood and gore to scare, which runs so ramped in today's Horror films, we have taken the approach of striking the imagination and allowing ones mind to float into a place that is much scarier than what the eye can actually see. So we encourage you take this trip with us...a trip that you may never forget!!

WHAT THE MONEY WILL BE USED FOR?

The funds collected through out this campaign will go towards securing necessary camera equipment including:  lenses, lights, and etc.  Also, the majority of the budget will be concentrated towards locking in on key locations in order bring out the fullest potential of this film as well as putting together an elaborate and high powered ending scene as it was both written and envisioned.  Other expenses will be applied towards renting the official "Exit 13" vehicle, gas for getting up into the mountains and towards road trip coverage necessary for the story to be told, special effects, snow machines, editing, and feeding our hard working cast and crew.

OUR HOPES FOR THE PROJECT

Upon completion of this film we will be running a full circuit campaign hitting multiple festivals in the spirit of the Indie tradition and community.  Our horror film push will maintain and stay true to the roots of Independent film making while reaching out to audiences across the nation and even the world.  Our efforts will be endless and we will not stop until our work has been seen and appreciated by the loyal fans and critics of not only the Horror film genre but also by those who value a great piece of film.
