Just because you know how to signup for a Kickstarter account doesn’t mean you should be directing your own horror movie! I love indie horror but I am also really tired of all the people who startup kickstarter projects and solicit me for cash but can’t be bothered to even give us a reason. If your serious about making the movie show us what you can do!
The easiest way to prove to fans that you are the real deal and worth our money? At least take the time to shoot a trailer which is exactly what the filmmakers behind Banjo did. Banjo my friends looks FANTASTIC and does not qualify as one of those movies people shouldnt fund.
Banjo follows a bullied office worker named Peltzer, who is humiliated daily by his fellow colleagues and cheating spouse. Once news about his embarrassing bedroom accident makes it’s way around the workplace, Peltzer decides to put up with his torment no longer, and conjures up his childhood imaginary friend “Ronnie” by the use of an Ouija board. Peltzer’s world is soon turned upside down, as Ronnie attempts to manipulate him, to exact revenge on his tormenting co-workers in the most gruesome fashion.
As Ronnie starts wreaking havoc and ruining Peltzer’s life and relationships, Peltzer soon finds that the genie is out of the bottle, and no longer able to control his imaginary friend. In this twisted tale of romance, revenge, and snapped banjo strings. Banjo is set to be directed by Troma alumni Liam Regan and produced by Safehouse Pictures UK (The Eschatrilogy: Book of the Dead).
