An all girls slumber party is invaded by turn of the century trick 'r treaters from beyond the grave at the behest of a vengeful witch.

WHAT IT IS? 

Back at it again with Sideshow Pictures third annual Horror Halloween short and this time it's all about broken Halloween traditions and witchcraft. Ever since we were snot nosed kids dressed up on Halloween night collecting candy our parents warned us of the both spooky and the very real Halloween dos and don'ts. Some of us listened and some of us didn't and we came out unscathed, but some traditions hold a deeper meaning and stretch beyond our world into something darker and more sinister. For Ashley and her friends they are about to find out that one simple mistake can cost you your life. One minute it's party time, the next you are being hunted by undead little monsters summoned by a hate filled and vengeful witch. Children of the Witch is a dark little tale that poses the question, should we be held responsible for the sins of our ancestors and, if so, what price must we pay?

WHY WE NEED YOU? 

Well because you're awesome and as much a part of Sideshow as the rest of us. You have the opportunity to be a part of a great project that celebrates the genre around it's very own holiday. As much as Sideshow does these shorts with a personal passion fueling the project, our number one goal is to give you a film you enjoy. Without the audience, there is no film community, and with Kickstarter the audience is able to become a part of the creative process. If you can't donate, that's no problem, maybe you can just pass this project along to someone who can. Or even a post on Facebook or Twitter is a worthwhile donation in our eyes. Even if we've sparked your interest enough to read this far, we are doing something right! 

WHAT WE WILL DO WITH YOUR PLEDGES?

The money gained here will be put to use in numerous ways. It will cover many aspects of the project from pre-production through to production, post production, and distribution. Such things as gathering locations, set design and decoration, booking actors and crew, props, equipment, vehicle rentals, and of course the gut wrenching practical and visual gore effects. Not a single penny of anyone's hard earned money will be wasted on this production.

OUR PROMISE 

We here at Sideshow promise to deliver a professionally made horror short filled with all the great things that make the genre what it is. Any and every pledge amount counts and is much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. *Some rewards are time sensitive. 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With every film production comes with it some risks and challenges, but nothing Sideshow can't overcome including but not limited to:

Locations
Casting
Crew
Sticking to schedule
Hitting deadlines
Editing
Scoring & Mixing
Delivering a finished product all involved can be proud of.

How can we make sure none of these hinder our progress you ask?

Well Sideshow is a fully functioning production company dedicated to the art of making films, with a vast reach of talent and industry professionals behind the camera as well.

We plan on maximizing every penny gained through Kikcstarter to execute and complete a great little horror flick that everyone can enjoy.

Like any other production company, we can be great problem solvers, but there will be nothing to worry about as we make sure our preparation going into any project is fool proof and completely thought out and planned. No stone goes unturned.
