Kicking into Kickstarter — MUCK: Feature Horror Film in 4K Ultra HD with No CGI

Writer and Director Steve Wolsh brings independent horror movie "Muck" to Kickstarter.

This campaign is to raise funds for the second film in the "MUCK" trilogy, and to keep all the effects in the films practical with no computer generated graphics.
The film takes practical special effects, no CGI, combined with new 4K ultra HD technology to give "Muck" a taste of old school horror film to the new horror genre.

The filmmakers of "Muck" are committed to independent horror filmmaking. No studio would allow them to make this film the way they wanted — bloody, dangerous and disturbing.

"Muck" is slated for theatrical release on Friday the 13th, March 2015, and promises to deliver a true horror film for true horror fans.

A donation of just $25 will get donators an advanced copy of both films and their names immortalized in the actual film credits.

Wolsh came from a successful film career and sold everything he owned to bring "Muck" to life.
"After narrowly escaping a long-forgotten burial ground beneath the marshes of Massachusetts, a group of friends spills out of the gnarled brush tattered, bloody, and lucky to be alive. With two of their friends already lost and presumed dead, they seek refuge in the empty vacation house nearby, but soon learn that the evil in the marsh is not the only thing that wants them dead. Something far more savage - more bestial - lies in wait, and the unspeakable events that transpire are horrors that cannot be unseen. The unlucky travelers spend their St. Patrick's Day trapped between two evils, each forcing them to fight, die, or go back the way they came."

Imagine this film as an Ultra HD violent blood-stained love letter to horror fans. The fIlm is unrated and contains no CGI. Support them and see it first.

Wolsh’s dragged Red Epics into the protected wetlands of New England for nineteen grueling, all-night shoots which helped make the bloody texture of the cinematography, and the overall unique, beautiful madness that is "Muck."

The film forms is set to be the middle chapter of the already planned true horror trilogy, with the forthcoming prequel and sequel serving as seamless bookends.

The prequel and sequel will take place the day before and day after St. Patrick’s Day in Cape Cod, where the film was shot on location.

All three films will be independently financed, as Wolsh places a premium on the ultimate creative and budgetary control that his WithAnO Productions retains by not seeking studio funding.

"Muck" stars horror legend Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th 7, 8, 9, and 10) and Australian hunk Lachlan Buchanan (Newcastle, Pretty Little Liars, and NCIS: Red), and co-stars 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jaclyn Swedberg, Indian beauty Puja Mohindra, and Laura Jacobs (Almost Human).

Pre-production for the "Muck" prequel, "Muck: Feast of Saint Patrick," has already begun, with filming to commence in April 2015.

Prequel cast members Kane Hodder and Playboy Playmates of the Year 2013 and 2014 Raquel Pomplun and Kennedy Summers have joined Wolsh to launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise additional financing.

Muck: Kickstarter Rewards include advanced copies of the films, tickets to an early screening of "Muck" at The Playboy Mansion, as well as the opportunity to be killed onscreen by Hodder himself.

Anchor Bay Entertainment holds North American distribution rights, with worldwide distribution to be determined this week at the American Film Market in Santa Monica, CA.
