Locally produced throwback slasher flick is in need of a little kickstart (two weeks left to help!)

Charleston based TBA Productions, LLC; an independent 2D and 3D media production company is currently filming "III" - a hybrid of a slasher film with a creature feature twist in the vein of H.P. Lovecraft.

The movie is currently filming, but to provide audiences with the ultimate gore-fest, they need our help. To get some extra funding, the producers have created a Kickstarter campaign. All donations made to the campaign will go directly to supporting the cast and crew for the duration of production.

Here's more on the film from the producers:

III's story and visual aesthetic is drawn from the classic slasher and creature features from the late 1970s and 1980s. Rather than having female characters incarnated as bimbos running helplessly up the stairs, they have been scripted as strong female leads which fight back against their attackers; similar to films like The Descent and High Tension. III features 13 cast members and 50+ extras that reside throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and have been filming since early October 2011 in St. Matthews, SC on a pre-civil war plantation. Key and supporting crew members consist of students from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Trident Technical College, Charleston School of the Arts, and the Art Institute of Charleston, as well as seasoned professionals from the industry.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, and movie concept trailers or worth two thousand. You can get the feel for what III is all about in the clip posted above. It reminds me of Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses - and I like it.
