If you like stop-motion animation and claymation movies, but wish that they came in the flavor of bloody, adult horror features, then you’re going to like today’s Indie Spotlight. From Lee Hardcastle, the director “T is for Toilet” from The ABCs of Death, comes Spook Train 3D, the world’s first feature-length claysplotation [sic]. The movie is comprised of ten unique nightmarish stories that vary in length from 15-minute narratives to 30-second groin punches. The project has a trailer to showcase the filmmaker’s style, but they’re reaching out via Kickstarter to help crowd-fund the production. Hit the jump to check it out.
Watch the trailer for Spook Train 3D below, and be sure to head over to the film’s Kickstarter page to contribute:
A SPOOK RIDE OF A MOVIE… LITERALLY
Three kids discover the remains of the legendary Spook Train, they’re about to experience why it was shut down by a moral panic. It’s a dark ride with an even darker sense of humor.
WHERE THE IDEA CAME FROM
I developed this idea for Spook Train because I’m a huge fan of this genre and love the “the most fun you’ll ever have being scared” approach to horror films, you know like Evil Dead 2 and more recently I’ve heard people describe films such as Sinister and Insidious as a “spook-ride-of-a-movie”.
And it got me thinking, wouldn’t it be cool to make a film that was literally a spook ride in every way?
A friend of mine suggested that if I truly believed in my idea then why not make a fake trailer for it and raise funds to have it made properly. So here we are.
