Filmmaker and creature design artist Sandy Collora has been part of the sci-fi and horror film industry for more than three decades, working on movies like The Abyss, Leviathan, Predator 2, The Crow, and Dogma as well as directing the killer fan-filmÂ Batman: Dead End.Â His latest endeavor is to try and collect the most money for a horror movie Kickstarter campaign in history.Â The lofty goal is $550,000, and Collora is confident there are enough dedicated fans out there that will help him in his quest to make a moody, unsettling horror film using all practical effects.Â So far, he's raised a little over $26,000 in the past few days, but support is growing!
Here's the film's official synopsis and pitch trailer:
A fishing trip to a remote and mythical fishing hole goes awry and becomes a terrifying predicament that keeps getting worse. Nestled deep in the Sea of Cortez is a tiny island you wonât find on any map. Six fishermen scour the Baja peninsula to find this magical place, but when they finally reach their destination, they encounter some sea life that they did not expect. This puts them all at odds and it quickly becomes every man for himself. Which will prevail, Mother Nature or Human Nature?
