Friends, I couldn't be more excited to tell you about a new Indiegogo campaign for the upcoming horror thriller, The Girl Who Played with the Dead! Writer, director, and former Jerry Springer guest Cory J. Udler is working to finance his next journey into depravity, and he needs your help to make it happen!
Udler, you'll recall, is the mastermind behind the Incest Death Squad trilogy and Mediatrix, as well as a contributor to the soon-to-be-released Wisconsin-horror anthology, Hole in the Wall. So, what's the movie about? Damned if I know, and I've read the IMDb synopsis:
Lauren (Kristen Casey) can't get enough of the dead. In more ways than one. Until one day she decides she needs a normal life, she needs to leave these bizarre thoughts behind her. Through a series of encounters with a man with a homemade sex doll, Satan (Blade Braxton), lesbian cannibals and a potential new love, Lauren seems to have overcome the demons. Or has she? Or is it all in her head?
Whatever madness Udler packs into The Girl Who Played with the Dead, the film is sure to be unique, imaginative, and difficult to recommend in polite circles. Over the next three-plus weeks, he'll be accepting Indiegogo contributions to make his fever-dream a reality. Remember, folks, we're talking pure, grassroots filmmaking here: every cent of the $3,000 budget will go to production costs like transportation, makeup effects, feeding the cast and crew during the shoot, and manufacturing physical media for independent distribution.
Best of all, the reward levels are dirt cheap and really cool! Ten bucks nabs you an executive producer credit on the movie and on IMDb. For twenty, you'll get that, as well as a TGWPwtD DVD, and an autographed photo from star Kristen Casey. If you wanna put on your big-boy pants and shell out a Benjamin, you'll be put to work as a featured extra on-set, and take home an autographed prop!
And if donating money to movies isn't your thing (lame!), feel free to spread the word on social media and be sure to "like" the film's Facebook page. After crossing the 500 mark, Udler will choose one follower at random to receive a screen-used dress from his short film, Ed Gein, D.D.S., signed by Night of the Living Dead star, Judith O'Dea!
Okay, enough with the enticements: loosen up your morals and your purse strings, and help bring The Girl Who Played with the Dead to life!
