Rogue Chimera Films has just launched a campaign on WeFunder that allows horror genre fans to actually invest in turning the acclaimed screenplay The Family Way into a feature film. This is NOT a crowd-funder like Kickstarter, but rather an actual revenue-sharing investment opportunity.
The Family Way is a unique twist on the old “crazy family” horror story, combining powerful themes of self-discovery, self-awareness, and self-preservation with a truly unusual cast of characters that will leave audiences rooting for the bad guys.
By all appearances, gas station owner Richard Cultry is a pillar of a small community. He’s a family man with a doting wife, a well-educated son, and a heart large enough to adopt a mentally-challenged boy and a socially-awkward teenager.
However, everyone in his household is also a vicious killer. In the tradition of the infamous Bender clan of the late 1800s, the Cultry Family preys on travelers and everyone has a role to play in the real family business.
After springing their trap on a group of vacationers, the Cultry family discovers that one of their intended victims may have the potential to become one of their own.
The production has already cast a few key roles including actress Catherine Corcoran (Known for Return to Nuke’Em High Vol. One, Return to Return to Nuke’Em High Vol. Two) and actress/model Mel Heflin (Known for Dead Woman’s Hollow, American Freakshow, Katherine).
The crew includes director Shiva Rodriguez and cinematographer Scott Sullivan, who both worked on the award-winning short prologue film “The Family Way: Coming Home”.
The Family Way is tentatively scheduled to begin filming in June 2018.
