What better day to support a local filmmaker's horror short than today? Seriously.
Orlando guy Jason Kupfer and his team have less than two days to go to meet their fundraising goal on Indiegogo so that they can finish up shooting and editing Invaders.
Invaders is a Thanksgiving-themed horror-comedy about a home invasion gone wrong when the two crooks put more effort into picking out their creepy masks than they do into planning the invasion.
As you would expect from a horror-comedy, the short aims to pack in as much blood and guts and broken teeth as possible. Fake blood effects are kind of pricey, but they're very close to meeting their goal and you can help them and maybe get yourself on the IMDb in the process. Take a gander at their Indiegogo page to see if you want to throw them a few bucks.
Now if you'll excuse me, the ghosts of Weekly editors past and probably present are chasing me for using the word gander and I must run run run.
UPDATE: Jason passed his goal of $5,000. Thanks to anyone who helped out!
