Aneurysm movie Kickstarter is live!!
This movie really does sound incredible, with a lot of awesome talent in front and behind of the camera. Just check out the press release below!
Inspired loosely by the scores of 'seemingly random' tragedies, both past and present; such as Columbine, Sandy Hook, Charles Whitman the notorious "Clock Tower Shooter" and the recent manhunt for murderous LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner; 'Aneurysm' follows three nightmarish days in the life of young, prosperous architect Jack York.
Jack is given terrible news on the eve of his fifth straight 'Humanitarian of the Year' win; he has a massive blood clot that will surface as an aneurysm in the Limbic System of his brain. This aneurysm will kill him, instantly; or in the slimmest chance, leave him functionally invalid for the rest of his life.
Devastated, because he wont be able to witness the birth and life of his first child, Jack goes into an emotional tailspin. Lost in dealing with so many things bigger than himself; death, destiny and the closure of his life, Jack searches for solace and the answers to troubling problems in his life from the past and present. Then, the aneurysm hits.
But, instead of killing Jack, the aneurysm eviscerates his mind, sending him on a day long, city wide killing spree that ends up destroying everyone and everything important in his life and exposes the world at large to something far darker than just your average, everyday tragedy... Something that will change the face of humanity, forever.
Aneurysm (who's script was compared to the works of "Stephen King" by legendary Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau) isn't just another horror film, or thriller, it is a dramatic study of the psychological and medical factors that can and do lead to the every day tragedies that punctuate the fabric of our existence. It is also a fictional exploration of the overarching consequences these tragedies have on humanity as a whole.
Once financing is in place, Aneurysm will feature an international cast headlined by the film's director Damien Sage, Academy Award Nominee Genevieve Bujold, leading man of the Raleigh NC Theater scene Jon Skinner, Cult Icon Mary Woronov (who will also be serving as a producer), and Superstar of the French Indie Scene Pierre Perrier.
It will also feature Horror Icon Lynn Lowry (who will also be serving as an associate producer) and Veteran Character Actor Giovanni Lombardo Radice in supporting roles.
Acclaimed English Actress Romola Garai and Italian Beauty Carolina Crescentini are being considered for the leading lady, and Androgynous Male Supermodel Andrej Pejic, star of the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Booboo Stewart and another Superstar of the French Indie Scene Cyrille Thouvenin are being courted for other supporting roles.
The Soundtrack for the film will feature New Original Songs by KMFDM, The Birthday Massacre, Kavinsky, !!! (Chk Chk Chk) and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. Escape the Fate will also most likely be joining the soundtrack, once all is in place.
In the effort to maintain maximum realism in the scenes of horror needed for Aneurysm's more brutal moments legendary special effects maestro Tom Savini will be coming out of retirement to do them through practical means, live on set.
Lastly, Roger Yuan, fight choreographer for Skyfall will be handling the two major action scenes of the film; leading Aneurysm to have a staggering array of talent in front of and behind the camera, usually reserved for much larger budgeted fare.
The Kickstarter project for the movie is finally under way, and can be found by clicking HERE.
