Tired of male villains in slashers? How about an indie film that’s launching soon with a creepy female lead? ‘Angel’ is in production, and its filmmakers are asking for $10,000 to keep it going.
‘Angel’ is the brainchild of ‘Don’t Fuck in the Woods’ director Shawn Burkett, who produces, and director Tory Jones (‘The Wicked One’). According to the page, the movie is “Best described as an atmospheric, suspense driven thriller, shot at incredible and haunting locations across two states and featuring a talented ensemble of proven actors and actresses This film will take you on a thrill ride into your darkest fears…”
As far as plot, the page’s synopsis is: “In 1986 a brutal massacre rocked the small isolated community of Raven Rock. For thirty years the town has been chained and walled off from the outside world while deteriorating and crumbling. However not all has been quiet as disappearances have been attributed to the supposedly haunted town. Now a headstrong journalist and her team venture to Raven Rock to investigate the town, its history, and the missing persons. What they will discover is sometimes the truth is more disturbing than myth and Raven Rock is still being occupied.”
So far the movie has garnered about $3500, with a month left to go. Prizes for contributing include mention in the closing credits, a t-shirt, special blu-ray editions of the movie, and for big spenders, tickets to the premiere and producer credit. Check out the trailer below:
