War is hell, and Saw V director David Hackl is out to prove it’s a lot more hellish than you may think with his latest film, Earthworks. There’s just one small detail… he’s looking to you to help fund a portion of it! Read on for details.
Earthworks is a WWII horror film that follows five American doughboys on their first night in the trenches of the Western Front as they experience the living (and dead) hell that is No Man’s Land. It is to be directed by Hackl and produced by UK outfit Bluebeard Pictures.
“Earthworks exists in an isolated trench/No Man’s Land set and creates a sense of abandonment from the start… Five young American soldiers enter France, and on their first night at an Allied trench, everything goes wrong very quickly. Caught up in a beguiling fog, the young characters each come to different but understandable decisions. It is a tense and atmospheric story and the horror/psychological thriller genres are purposefully chosen to tell their stories as the genre elements of surprise, shock, terror, fear, and encroaching anxiety about the unseen all lend themselves to the story well. The film also features all the elements you would expect of a horror film.”
Daryl Sabara of Spy Kids and Adam Butcher (Dog Pound) are attached to star.
