Kickstart SHE

The need to cultivate and nurture short horror films is obvious. Shorts lead to features. Film-makers who hone their craft with small, short films sometimes become wise auteurs like Guillermo del Toro. With the event of Kickstarter a horror fan has the choice to contribute and, in many ways, holds the power of life or death over a project.

Today I bring forth a project that has a solid premise and foundation. For the price of a movie ticket you have the chance to help make SHE . The film-makers have assembled an impressive cast and crew. Fiona Dourif plays SHE. You might recognize this talented young lady as the lead in the new Curse of Chucky movie.

They have captured British stage talent Phillip James to play HE. The director of photography is David Meadows who helmed the cam in Human Centipede 2 (and the upcoming Human Centipede 3). Finally, but not least, is the man behind the gore, Paul While. While is a professional special effects make-up and prosthetics artist operating under the business name Graphic Delusions.

I think Chelsey Burdon and Mark Vessey have put together a great Kickstarter campaign that speaks for itself. If you are so inclined please check out SHE. The people guiding a small film today might be making a big film tomorrow.
