Fantastic horror short – please support on Kickstarter

Funding Deadline: 16th June 2013
Funding Goal: $3,500
What is it?: Short horror film
Why does the Eyeball love it and want to have its freaky kids?
Fantastic trailer and nails the scariest thing about those creepy storage locker spaces.

Welcome to a new, hopefully regular, feature on the Eyeball where we focus on some of the most interesting horror and weird-themed projects we’ve found on Kickstarter. This Sunday we start with Darkk Storage:

Darkk Storage” is a bone chilling horror about Julie, a beautiful woman that discovers her fiance is cheating on her just after getting fired from her job. As the day couldn’t get any worse, (or so she thinks) she unloads her life into a storage facility, hoping that will help her move on with her pathetic life. The storage facility might be the last place Julie will ever know…

The funding trailer does a hilarious summary of this setup, going from funny to terrifying in a single bloody step.

We really hope you can spare a buck, or some online time, to hep turn horror nightmares into horror reality. You can also support them using Twitter and Facebook.

The trailer was made for nearly $0, so we cannot wait to see how the full length short film will turn out.

The menacing luncatic attacks our intrepid filmmakers!

A labour of love for all involved, the Eyeball wants to lend its support. Dying to see how it turns out, and if Julie ends up like our hapless filmmaker! (Sorry, Shay!)

Hoping for a terrifyingly awesome outcome here. Who will survive in Darkk Storage and what will be left of them?

Also, hopefully we’ll learn why they use two k’s at the end of Darkk. Seriously, why is that?

The Monsters (2004) Short film Dir. Tony Potter

Do you like scary silly movies? This is for you!

The internet can take you to some odd places. I was looking at the cast list for last year’s popular video game, L.A. Noire, and clicked, more or less at random, on J D Cullum. Turns out he did this crazy little short film inbetween an 2004 season of ’24’ and while starring in ‘Judging Amy’.  I’m not sure how actors get into these short movies, but it’s a funny movie following the story that a kid makes up at  camp fire. I think they may have made this in their lunch breaks, actually.

The story is pretty simple, reminds me of Stephen King’s ‘Boogeyman’ story, only played for laughs. Monsters invade a man’s house, hiding in his closet and eating everyone he sends in there, including cops, although some think he should be in the ‘loony bin’. Remember, this is basically a story made up on the spot by a kid. The acting isn’t bad, hammy and tongue firmly in cheek, and if you’re in the mood for some low budget and endearingly silly ‘horror’ then there are definitely worse ways to spend about eight-and-a-half minutes online.

I can’t find it on youtube, but here’s the link to the imdb.com site where I found it.
