As a horror fan it’s hard not to love practical special effects, as nothing looks better than a gory scene, which looks like it could have been shot from your local hospital operating theatre. Brett Kelly certainly knows how to deliver comedy with his films My Fair Zombie and Homicycle, and now he’s getting us involved with his latest film Countrycide with the use of our weakness – special effects monsters.
Although Kelly’s previous films have been satirical, Countrycide is set to be far more realistic, focusing on the horrifying events that could unfold if one were to become trapped and isolated in the wilderness. Kelly said “People know me for my tongue-in-cheek films, but this movie is not tongue-in-cheek; it’s full-on suspense!”
The survival horror film is currently in pre-production, but what is needed from us to make this film the beast it could be is some seriously cool special effects. Kelly made a video for the IndieGoGo page, welcoming us to the world of Countrycide and announcing that the money is going to be specifically used to create an animatronics animal of some kind.
The perks for the film are definitely enticing, so if you’re interested in helping Brett Kelly out then head over to the campaign page for more information:
Countrycide follows one woman’s plight with the brutal and unforgiving wild as she becomes trapped alone in the woods when a bear trap snaps round her leg. She must fight to survive against the elements, nature’s most ferocious four legged beasts and some of the world’s worst predators – humans.
