Malevolent: An animated horror starring William Shatner
Malevolent, the first-ever US-made animated horror movie, is currently looking for backers on IndieGoGo and is described as “Saw” meets “Groundhog Day.”
The horror/sci-fi film is about a young woman named Miriam DeKalb (Dani Lennon, FearNet/Machinima’s BITE ME) who works for a non-profit which promotes global peace initiatives. When her billionaire sociopath father Cyrus (Ray Wise) learns he is dying, Cyrus calls Miriam and her three siblings together to “discuss his will.” However, what he actually has planned is to pronounce judgment on them all. They are, in his view, traitors, and he has grisly death traps planned for each of them.
Malevolent has cast stars such as Morena Baccarin, Bill Moseley, and William Shatner.
Backers can expect their money to go towards additional artists/animators, sound mixing, color correction, and music. The team have been working on the project for over a year now and are just several months away from completion, it’s with your help that the project can be turned into the ultimate animated horror/sci-fi.
Perks range from $10 – $25 and include such items as product placements, a chance to be animated into the movie and IMDB credits.
The team behind Malevolent are hoping to reach a target of $45,000 and if you wish to help you can do so by visiting their IndieGoGo campaign page and pledging.
