Blood Junkie is one of the best films to emerge from the indie hor­ror scene in the last few years.  Thus, it’s a plea­sure for Schlockmania to report that the tal­ent­ed peo­ple behind this flick are gear­ing up to make anoth­er film, Billy Club.  They’ve put out the call for financ­ing help and you can read the basic details below.  There are also links to the film’s offi­cial web­site, Facebook page and the Kickstarter site.  You can donate for as lit­tle as the price of a movie tick­et and help some wor­thy film­mak­ers in the process.  Read on for all the gueril­la hor­ror-meis­ter details…

About the film:

Billy Club is an inde­pen­dent­ly pro­duced hor­ror film from direc­tors Nick Sommer and Drew Rosas. This is a psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of Halloween, Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. In 2010, Rosas and Sommer cre­at­ed the instant cult clas­sic Blood Junkie, pick up for dis­tri­b­u­tion with Troma Entertainment. This sum­mer they are team­ing up again to pro­duce their new film Billy Club, a haunt­ing new vison in the realm of inde­pen­dent hor­ror cin­e­ma.

Plot Overview:

Bobby Spooner returns to his child­hood home town of Two Rivers Wisconsin after fif­teen years away and bumps into some of his old friends from lit­tle league base­ball. Recruiting them for a week­end par­ty at his family’s cab­in up North, Bobby hits the road with Kyle, Danny, Allison and a truck full of beer. Before they can reach the cab­in, a small town Sheriff with ques­tion­able ethics take Bobby into jail for drink­ing and dri­ving leav­ing the three friends alone for the first night at the cab­in. Little do they know that a deranged killer is lurk­ing in the woods near­by.

WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING?

Glad you asked. To some of you $15,000 may seem like a lot of mon­ey for a movie, and to us it is. However this doesn’t even begin to touch what an “actu­al” indie style movie costs. We made Blood Junkie for $7000 and we are super proud and excit­ed the way that turned out. This new script is a lit­tle more com­plex and we want to push the real­ism, effects and scare fac­tor even fur­ther. That is why we are ask­ing for $15,000.

Breakdown:

$3,000 — Props, wardrobe, and set design.

$2,000 — Camera Package rental

$2,000 — Other equip­ment — Lights etc.

$4,000 — Craft Services or food and water for the cast and crew over 20 days

$1,500 — Gas/several vehi­cles need to trav­el sev­er­al miles and as we all know it’s expen­sive.

$1,500 — %5 of our mon­ey raised goes to Kick Starter and anoth­er %5 goes to Amazon’s pro­cess­ing fees. That’s %10 of our bud­get we have to plan on los­ing.

$1,000 — Last but not least your Gifts for your Donations. Those all cost mon­ey as well so that is anoth­er cost we have to fig­ure in.

THANKS:

Thanks to any­one who has helped already with the fundrais­er shoot and prep for the film and a “Special Thanks” in advance to any­one think­ing about donat­ing. We real­ly do need your help. If we don’t reach our goal of $15,000 we get no mon­ey at all, so even pass­ing the word on to all of your friends and fam­i­ly would be great­ly appre­ci­at­ed.
