Topic: The Legend of Seven Toe Maggie - Feature
Blackflight Studios is beginning production on its 2nd feature film titled "The Legend of Seven Toe Maggie". The film will begin production in March and is currently trying to raise funding.
The film is written and will be directed by Joseph Lavender. His last film "EXIT 101" which he also wrote, is currently available on DVD and will be distributed world wide later this year on DVD and VOD. You can view the trailer for it at: www.exit101movie.com
"The Legend of Seven Toe Maggie" is based on a real urban legend in South GA. The story revolves around a native american slave who is brutally tortured and murdered during the civil war period in a local church located on historic "Seven Toe Road". The church now replaced with a house is the resting place for restless spirit "Seven Toe Maggie" given the name by the town locals who swear that her attackers cut off 3 of her toes, before she died. They say if you walk around the house 7 times her spirit will appear, and bad things will happen.
The film is loosely based off this tale, and follows the story of Mattie Ellis, born into a rich family who deals in real estate. Her father purchases "Seven Toe House", which in turn causes her to have a paranormal experience there as a youngster. Now that she's all grown up, her experience has plagued her and she inadvertently seeks help from a group of rag tag paranormal investigators to help her figure out what she experienced all those years ago.
We are shooting the film in a historical house in South GA, with its own real paranormal phenomenom. We are bringing in a group of real paranormal investigators for research purposes, and they will be doing a real live investigation as a special segment on the DVD. What sets us apart from other film makers, is that we are still shooting this as a cinematic movie. The new "found footage" fad is a popular craze that we want to avoid, and take you back to old school traditional story telling. We will be taking queues from Alfred Hitchcock, and Stephen King, from films such as: Poltergeist, The Shining, The Amityville horror. We are raising funds in order to compensate our cast and crew. We are very dedicated to our craft, and we are offering some great rewards for your help. Check it out!
