Ginger Nuts of Horror
WILL, a high school Mr. Popular wannabe, prepares his costume for the big Halloween party, while pondering how to get noticed by his high school crush, HEATHER, whom he can’t stop thinking about. Meanwhile, his introverted ex- best friend, RUSSELL, is at his isolated home deep in the boonies, playing a game of Dungeons & Dragons with his friends. To spice up the game, Russell chants a spell from a mysterious necromancer book that he found and accidentally raises undead creatures, referred to in the spell book as “Revenants”.
After the party gets busted by the cops, Will becomes desperate to keep the night going and earn his crush’s affection, and, knowing that Russell’s parent’s are never home, tells everyone to continue the party at Russell’s place - a huge house in the middle of the woods, with no neighbors and worst of all, no cell phone service. Will tells Russell what he has done, and Russell is furious, but after Russell’s secret crush, ANGIE (An angsty hipster who’s not afraid to speak her mind), shows up, he allows the party to go on, only to be crashed later by four revenants who relentlessly slaughter party patrons with their weapons of death.
Isolated from help, surrounded by danger, Will must team up with Russell, Heather and Angie for survival. Ill-equipped, unskilled, and anything but team players, this rag-tag group’s true colors come out. But before they can deal with death-dealing revenants, they’ll first need to deal with each other.
The Writer/Director - Carl Bachmann had this to say about the film
Where will the money go?
Film budgets are an array of expenses. This includes camera, lighting rentals. Cast and crew pay (everyone is a working freelancer in LA), location rentals, costume rentals (It's at a halloween party!), equipment insurance, expendables- such as batteries, makeup kit fees, lighting gels, equipment truck fuel), post production fees such as picture edit, sound edit, coloring, composer fees, payroll.
The money we ask for may seem like a lot, but it's actually very low, about 1/20th of what studios consider "micro-budget". The way we keep these expenses extremely low, is shooting with digital cameras, as opposed to film, careful negotiating with cast and crew, who will work multiple jobs, recycling locations, and a small shooting schedule.
The money we are asking for is an addition to what we're able to contribute ourselves to make this dream a reality.
I want to make backer rewards personal and sharable with your friends. That's why I will invest extra time to create unique things for you. Along with what you see on the right of this page, keep a look out for extra limited rewards that will pop up during the campaign.
For $35 I'm offering the DVD or Blu-ray of the movie along with your pic put into a Grindhouse-style movie poster, and you can choose from one of the three templates below. But for $99, I will also include a 1-OF-A-KIND Grindhouse poster made from scratch featuring YOU as the main attraction on it! And the first 3 people who contribute for these rewards (or higher), will get their poster before the campaign ends regardless if the funding goal is met or not! Here are the templates:
