Richard Powell and the folks over at Fatal Pictures may not be household names, but for those who have seen their body of work, it’s hard not to be impressed. Their short films Consumption (2008)
, Worm (2011)
, and Familiar (2012)
are among some of the best independent short films that I have personally come across. Familiar
showed this talented group moving into the world of body horror and adult ideas, but it sounds as if their next feature, HEIR
, will be even more ambitious! And you too can be a part of it!
Fatal Pictures are in the last two weeks of their Kickstarter for HEIR
and things are looking good, but now is your opportunity to be a part of it. The film, which looks to pair Fatal Pictures once again with Robert Nolan (one of the strongest leading men in the indie film world), is looking for a budget of $17,000 and they are getting close to reaching that number. For just $20, you can help get this project funded and also score a copy of the movie on DVD for yourself! The plot synopsis for the movie is as follows:
After connecting with a stranger of similar interests online, Gordon and his young son Paul, embark on an ill-fated road trip in which Gordon aims to indulge a secret passion. Before the day ends, a horrible truth will be uncovered and a harsh lesson will be learned. HEIR is a monster movie unlike any other, it is a bleak and fantastical examination of one of societies darkest taboos that aims to stimulate the mind and wrench the gut with equal power.
Give the Kickstarter
a look and hopefully throw them a few bucks. While you’re doing that, you can check out their previous short film Familiar
for free! I am sure you will be impressed. I will end this with some of my favorite artwork posted on the Kickstarter page. This is looking excellent.
