Fatal Pictures have been responsible for some truly remarkable offerings not just in horror but in short cinema in general over the last few years and are now in the process of funding what will be their last short film before moving on to bigger and (almost inconceivably) better things. For this final charge into the blood soaked sunset the unbeatable team of Richard Powell (director), Zach Green (producer) and Robert Nolan (actor) have joined forces once more to bring Heir to the world.
The trio have already been responsible for some truly spine chilling moments in cinema with Consumption, Worm and Familiar [reviewed here] and as such have earned helmer Powell the title of one of the top ten directors who "should be on your radar" by FearNet.
After connecting with a stranger with similar interests online, Gordon and his young son Paul, embark on an ill-fated road trip in which Gordon aims to indulge a secret passion. Before the day ends a horrible truth will be uncovered and a harsh lesson will be learned. Heir is a monster movie unlike any other, it is a bleak and fantastical examination of one of societies darkest taboos that aims to stimulate the mind and wrench the gut with equal power.
Sounds great, right? Why not drop by the Kickstarter page for Heir [here] and donate whatever you can in order to get it made. By doing so you'll be lending a hand to one of the most promising creative teams that Knifed in Venice has had the priviledge to know. However if you're still unconvinced why not scroll to the bottom of the Kickstarter page and enjoy the fantastic Familiar.
