Fatal Pictures has successfully funded the Kickstarter campaign for their final short film HEIR. The film promises to be gory, horrific and monstrous and will showcase practical FX.
Produced by Fatal Pictures in association with Red Sneakers Media, "HEIR" is the final entry in their "Box Cutter Trilogy", a trio of linked shorts each representing “different theories on the origin and operation of sociopaths,” and successfully raised its $17,000 goal and then some.
The first two shorts, WORM and FAMILIAR have received excellent reviews from around the genre.
