About this project

Welcome to a rather creepy Kickstarter and thanks for stopping by!

"The Phantom Bride" - A group of teenagers reminisce on an old ghost story where a Bride, ditched at the altar, murders her ex-fiance and his new lover before taking her on life. Despite a warning, the group head out to see if the legend of her haunting the local cemetery is true... they soon wish that they hadn't. 

Why we need your help? 

Annoyingly a film is expensive to make, especially a good one! It's amazing how some things, even so little can add up in expense. For example location insurance is easily overlooked but is required by law and can cost thousands of dollars. Then lighting, equipment, catering, travel, the hard working crew and of course the talented actors all need to be taken care of during the course of filming. We have managed to gather a very talented crew, makeup artists, wardrobe and the cast is looking to be a VERY good one.

Kickstarter is a great way to reach out to people, for people to give creative talent a chance to entertain. And don't forget that if we don't reach our funding goal no money will be exchanged.

A Little bit more about the film and director and cast.

Writer and director Marc Hudson has worked in film for over 7 years but has only just moved to America from London. "I love ghost stories even as a kid. The haunted house at the fairground terrified me but I loved it. There's something about a dark, creepy place, where you think you see something out of the corner of your eye and you fear the worst. Or watching a scary movie where you suddenly realize you are hugging the couch cushions or making sure the door is locked... but with me it's what's inside the room with you that can be more frightening. That's what I want to do with Phantom Bride, have that audience on the edge of their seats with fear. This woman is terrifying and just wants nothing more than some unsuspecting kids to stumble onto her path".

Chris Schellenger was cast almost instantly. "I wrote the part of the leader of the group with Chris in mind. I had the pleasure of working with him for nearly 10 weeks on another project and he is such a great actor, he loved the script the same with the talented Taylor Caldwell. They are both extremely nice guys, easy to work with and get the job done at an amazing level. The same with Anna Hanson, I worked with her on a music video filmed in an abandoned hospital and I can just see her wielding and axe in a crumbling cemetery."
