With just 46 days left in the campaign, the world’s first equity crowd-funding movie has met its goal and is now officially greenlit for production.  This alone is record-breaking news, and there’s still plenty of time to help the project reach its stretch goals if you want to jump on this bandwagon. Why wouldn’t you? Even if the idea of investing in a film doesn’t catch your attention, the film at the center of this campaign should.

A horror anthology that brings together eight tales of terror from across the globe, exploring native folklore from new, definitive voices in the genre is a must-see. The project involves fantastic international filmmakers like Can Evrenol (Baskin), Agnieszka Smoczynska (The Lure), and Veronika Franz & Severin Fiala (Goodnight Mommy).

Producers Ant Timpson (Turbo Kid, The Greasy Strangler) and Alamo Drafthouse CEO/Founder Tim League (ABCs of Death) continue to take our genre in bold new directions, and the fan-ownership model that they’ve introduced proves that.  Even better? They’ve introduced a film project that fans should be excited to see. I know I am.  More information on the project and its future developments can be found here.

The Field Guide to Evil is a brand-new anthology from the creators of the notorious ABCs of Death series, a feature-length film that will unveil malevolent folktales that have captivated and frightened communities throughout history. Directed by some of the world’s most acclaimed new directorial voices including Veronika Franz & Severin Fiala (Goodnight Mommy), Peter Strickland (The Duke of Burgundy), Agnieszka Smoczynska (The Lure), Katrin Gebbe (Nothing Bad Can Happen), Can Evrenol (Baskin), Calvin Reeder (The Rambler), Yannis Veslemes (Norway), and Ashim Ahluwalia (Miss Lovely).
