If you’re casting a horror movie, you can’t go wrong bringing Lance Henriksen into your project. And the people behind the upcoming film Being knew this. To raise the stakes, they also brought in Robert John Burke…he was a RoboCop for crying out loud!
Read on for more about Being.
Doug C. Williams, the writer/director of Being, is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the film. Along with Henriksen and Burke (whom, in addition to being the cop in RoboCop 3, you may recognize as the unfortunate disappearing victim in Stephen King’s Thinner) in the cast are Brian Foyster, Christian Davies, and Jason Iannacone A sci-fi/horror nightmare, Being promises to tickle the fancy of old school horror fans as well as appease all audiences who simply love being unsettled.
“The modern world is getting very comfortable with fear and isolation… and if isolation becomes comforting to you, there’s something very wrong with that,” said Henriksen. “Fear in a spiritual sense is becoming an addiction, and I’m very happy to be a part of this crew; believe me, they’re kicking butt!”
For all those interested in seeing Lance Henriksen killing it in a brand new sci-fi/horror film, check out the Being Kickstarter campaign, which is offering some great perks for supporting a unique new film.
From the Press Release:
Being is an edgy and one-of-a-kind film that transcends the typical horror genre. The story provokes an unnerving reflection of human behavior and tragic violence that occurs when someone, or something, threatens a person’s beliefs. Being is designed to leave you on the edge of your seat and shake the convictions of what you believe in.
Being already has several days of shooting in the can from locations in Norwalk, CT, and the Catskills in upstate New York, where paranormal activity and UFO sightings are frequently reported. Production is targeted to resume in August 2015 after the completion of a Kickstarter campaign, and the production team is encouraging involvement from fans of the horror/sci-fi genre.
“When this film becomes a reality, it will be in large part because of Kickstarter fans,” said director Doug C. Williams. “The opportunity to endorse and be a part of the artistic film process can be one of the most rewarding and exhilarating experiences a person can have in their lifetime. The pride of joining with extremely talented artists to develop cinematic works of art is immeasurable. We have taken advantage of every resource and contributing factor available to us, which has allowed us to already shoot some amazing footage for the film and to release our promotional teaser.”
Kickstarter contributors are rewarded with memorabilia from the film, and participation levels go from $5 all the way up to $10,000 with the reward of being named as an executive producer on the film.
The story all takes place over one night on a farmhouse in a small town in the mountains. A mysterious, bright burst of light explodes from inside the barn, knocking out the power. The drunken gathering going on in the main house comes to an abrupt halt. There is a creature they will discover in the barn. Something they do not understand. And as always, when the beliefs of the weak and fearful are threatened, they turn on each other.
