To lull these folks into a false sense of security, though (KIDDING), I'm perfectly OK with supporting indie horror in any way I can. A lot of it is fresh and new and it may not be summer blockbuster but it's certainly worth a watch. (Stick me with bad acting, audio that sounds like you filmed the entire movie in a locker room and an ultra-slow pace that tells me you can't edit, though, and I'll cut you.)
That said, Lawrie Brewster just let me in on his new film, Lord of Tears which needs a little help to get released. Here's the trailer:
Now, I LOVE films like The Woman in Black and the old Hammer and Amicus stuff and this kind of has that feel to it so I'm pre-recommending this on the trailer alone with the proviso that it IS an indie film and it does not look perfect. That is a perfectly OK thing and films that try to be too perfect usually end up sucking dead donkey dick.
You can find out more about Lord of Tears at its website: www.lordoftears.com or show it some love on Facebook.
Here's the thing, though. They do need a little help, so if you can spare it, maybe consider kicking in a little at Kickstarter. Every little bit helps, y'see, and this looks like it'll be a quality product. They have some sweet doodads you can get for donating and a vid from Lawrie himself giving us a look into the film's making.
Plus he has an awesome accent.
In all seriousness, though, this looks like it'll be a lot of spooky fun and it's been my experience that indie horror from across the pond is TONS better than the indie horror made here. Get into it, kids.
