At PCB we are pretty much addicted to Horror. We watch it, eat it, live it, and even create it. Our founder Garon Cockrell put out a book (click on the word book to buy the book, do it!) of short nightmarish tales a few years back and now one of the stories is being adapted into a movie…. with your help. From the press release:
Director Ryan Stockstad has partnered with producer Gui Pereira to make the short horror movie ‘Eggs’ (that’s Garon’s story) with Lynn Lowry and Duane Whitaker from a screenplay by Stockstad and Jon Rosenberg. The filmmakers have launched a campaign on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to raise $30,000 of the project’s budget. “Eggs is a psychological horror movie about loneliness and madness taken to extreme consequences”, said Ryan Stockstad, founder of Crowned Prince Productions. “It’s about what can happen when otherwise good people ignore the suffering of others.”
Looks like there’s a pretty solid cast signed for the project:
Lynn Lowry is a respected horror icon having appeared in over 25 horror movies, including Shivers, The Crazies, I Drink Your Blood and Cat People. She recently appeared in The Theatre Bizarre, and The Haunting of Whaley House.
Duane Whitaker is perhaps best known for his performance in Pulp Fiction as Maynard, the menacing proprietor of the Mason Dixon Pawn Shop. He has also appeared in From Dusk Till Dawn 2 (which he also wrote), Feast, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween 2, and many others.
Also attached to the project are Julia Lehman (Cheerleader Massacre 2, Volcano Zombies), G Larry Butler (Frankenstein vs. the Creature from Blood Cove), Maetrix Fitten (Hancock), Carl Solomon (TheVideo Dead), Marc Fajardo (Little Paradise), and Tina Molina (Panman).
The Eggs Kickstarter campaign will run now through November 7th, 2014, check out the campaign page HERE!
