Indiegogo: Halloween: The Face of Michael Myers

Marking 40th Anniversary of Iconic Halloween Franchise, Filmmakers Launch Indiegogo Campaign for Innovative Fan Film Halloween: The Face of Michael Myers.

What is the true nature of Michael Myers? Hawthorne House Films and filmmaker Stephen Wolfe bring a fresh take on the classic white-faced antagonist of the Halloween franchise in a brand-new fan film seeking your help through an exciting crowd funding initiative launching Thursday, October 25th.

SYNOPSIS: Forty years on from the initial violence that unsettled the suburban community of Haddonfield, IL, a new set of murders rattles the sleepy town. Dr. Benjamin Petersen (Matt Baca) is charged with the psychiatric evaluation of a young man who butchered his entire family. Billy (Tim Robinson) claims the specter of Michael Myers entered his body to satisfy its bloodlust. As the conversations between patient and doctor delve into the dark territory of Billy’s twisted psyche, Benjamin’s own sense of reality fractures, threatening to conjure the infamous spirit and plunge Haddonfield into another blood-soaked Halloween.

ABOUT THE PROJECT: The short is helmed by up and comer Stephen Wolfe, whose first two horror features, Midnight Abyss and Doll Factory, are due out early next year, along with his forthcoming short horror/comedy Dracula’s Coffin. A lifelong love affair and study of horror cinema mark Wolfe as the perfect visionary filmmaker keen to interpret its undercurrents of social commentary while also delivering on the bloody goods. The script was written by new talents Tim Robinson and Mike McPherson, whose penchant for the shadowy corners of the human mind lends itself to this probing iteration of the infamous slasher villain.

The development is being overseen by Vincente DiSanti, writer/director of the popular Friday the 13th fan film Never Hike Alone, as well as Volumes of Blood creator P.J. Starks. Both are excited to lend their assistance and expertise to this production.
With cast and crew assembled, the project is seeking to fulfill a $13,000 fundraising goal on the Indiegogo platform. The campaign offers a variety of unique and inspired horror perks for donating fans including exclusive pins, posters, shirts, and more! The campaign launches Thursday, October 25th. Production is slated to begin shortly after with an early 2019 release.

I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
