The animated horror flick Malevolent met its Indiegogo goal and then some, so production is well under way; and we’re pleased to present an exclusive first-look still of what they have cooking. The filmmakers tell us that while it’s not a horror-specific scene, it does capture one of their wonderful “shit hits the fan” moments.
Malevolent features voice work from Bill Moseley, Morena Baccarin, Ray Wise, Dani Lennon, and William Shatner. The director is Jason Axinn.
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), 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.
