Stirring is at the center of one of the new Kickstarter campaigns that we’re actually interested in. It’s a Christmas themed flick that already has genre favorite, Brinke Stevens involved. That alone is enough to really snag our attention. Frankly put, we want to see this movie made! The goals aren’t too outrageous, and the pledge rewards are solid. Seriously, check this one out, you may be behind the idea of getting the flick off the ground and moving!
Check out the press release for further details:
Troy Escamilla, in collaboration with Fright Meter Films, is set to produce his second feature film and bring true holiday terror to the screen in fall 2018. Titled Stirring and penned by Escamilla, the project was inspired by Escamilla’s favorite horror film, 1974’s Black Christmas, and will focus on a group of students attending a Christmas party at a sorority house with a sinister past who are stalked by a bloodthirsty killer.
Horror icon and scream queen Brinke Stevens is set to star alongside Helene Udy, who appeared in the classic 1981 slasher My Bloody Valentine, and up-and-coming indie horror actress Kaylee Williams (Model Hunger, The Lashman, Porkchop 3D).
Escamilla has a goal of raising $13,500 by March 10, 2017, with the Stirring campaign. There’s a plethora of great rewards available for backers, including the opportunity to be an extra in the film!
Troy knows and respects the horror genre. He founded the Fright Meter Awards, which have grown in respect and popularity over the last few years with global backers that make up the over 50-member international Award Committee, including bloggers, writers, directors, producers, actors, and fans in the horror genre.
Fright Meter Films’ first feature, Party Night, was filmed this past June after being successfully funded on Kickstarter. Also written and directed by Escamilla, it wrapped post-production last month and has received very positive early reviews with plans to hit the festival circuit in 2017.
Escamilla promises Stirring will not disappoint: “Fans of holiday-themed horror will enjoy the hell out of it; it’s bigger, bloodier, and bolder than Party Night! Fans will recognize winks to Black Christmas; Silent Night, Deadly Night; and To All a Goodnight but will also appreciate its own unique style and take on the Christmas-themed slasher.”
