We last reported on the animated horror film Malevolent a few months ago, and now an Indiegogo campaign has been launched to get it finished and out there. If you’re unsure about contributing, then keep in mind that it stars Bill Moseley, Morena Baccarin (Deadpool), Ray Wise (“Twin Peaks”), Dani Lennon, and Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner. Now that, my friends, is an awesome cast!
The film is directed by Jason Axinn and produced by Cindi Rice and Paige Barnett. Malevolent is anticipated for completion in late 2016.
There’s still plenty of time left to contribute, so head over to Indiegogo if you want to see this time-hopping, gore-filled cartoon get finished.
A young woman (Lennon) and her siblings are summoned by their dying industrialist father (Wise) ostensibly to discuss his will. But what he has in mind is far more sinister — if he’s going down, he’s taking everyone else out with him. The wrinkle? A race of inter-dimensional gamblers, led by The Gamemaster (Baccarin; pictured below), wager on the outcome — and they have the ability to manipulate time to change the playing field as they see fit. Shatner’s “Overseer” calls the match.
MALEVOLENT is a bloody genre-bender — SAW meets GROUNDHOG DAY.
