About

The above video is the 22 minute short film mentioned in our project video. This was the beginnings of our exploration of what ROTTEN could become. Please watch it and consider backing our project!

ROTTEN is a throwback to the classic slasher movies of the 70s and 80s, when people went to the movies to see the ‘killer’ in the latest Friday The 13th or Halloween films, and sometimes even root them on. However, unlike those movies, I am hoping to have an interesting killer AND a very good story to go along with it. What makes a really good movie is a really good villain. I think that Randall Rotten could be new supernatural serial killer that horror fans have been waiting for.

I’m excited to say I will be working with Mark Allen Stuart, who is the CEO of Hydraulic Entertainment, and producer of the amazing movie “The Lost Skeleton Returns Again”. Mr. Stuart also is producing new CDs for former Misfits singer Michale Graves, whom I also had the great opportunity to edit several of his upcoming videos for his newest CD release, The Lost Skeleton Returns.

Rotten will be made by a close knit group of family and friends, so for the modest budget of $7,000, I am confident we will be able to bring you something very special, and very memorable.

Risks and challenges

We learned a lot in the making of the 22 minute short film, and we feel that we are prepared for any obstacles which may arise in the making of ROTTEN as a feature length film.

However, we do already know that some of our cast from the short will not be able to return to make the feature. These are friends who agreed to spend last summer shooting a trailer that turned into a short film, but they do have their own lives and jobs, and are not professionals, so we know that asking them to film an entire movie isn't really feasible. So there will be some recasting that will need to happen if we are funded.

As you can see on my YouTube page (www.youtube.com/bearforce001), I have extensive experience in filming, editing, and producing digital effects on my own, and I feel certain that if we can raise the budget, we will be able to make a movie that we can be proud of, and that you, the horror fans, will love.

The dates on our rewards are estimates, and may be adjusted once we are funded and have scheduled our film dates. Any updates or changes will be sent out as a backer update!
