Indie filmmaker Kevin Kangas, the man behind the FEAR OF CLOWNS movies, is moving forward with GARDEN OF HEDON, a freaky fright feature for which he’s raising the last part of his budget on-line. He gave Fango a few details about the project, as well as info on how you can be involved.
GARDEN OF EDEN opens with a man waking up in a room next to the body of a dead woman, with no memory of how he got there or even any clue where he is. Trying to find help, he instead finds himself in the middle of a bizarre party rife with sex, drugs—and more murders. “GARDEN is an experimental little movie that’s going to be a cross between the good 10 minutes of EYES WIDE SHUT—the mansion masquerade—and a supernatural element,” Kangas tells us. “It’s sort of like a giallo mixed with the fantastique—but it will have some great gore and a new ‘monster’ that I guarantee everyone’s gonna love.”
Like a growing a number of filmmakers recently, Kangas is seeking to amass a portion of his budget through crowd-source financing, offering a number of incentives (including credit) in exchange for the cash. You can see the details here. “Since the whole thing is an experiment—we’ll even be playing a PG-13 version of the entire movie in pieces on-line for free for a limited time shortly after the premiere—we thought we’d try this new crowd-funding way to get a little extra money to up the gore even more,” says Kangas, who plans to begin shooting GARDEN in November.
