KILLER CLOWN FILM “KILL GIGGLES” ON INDIEGOGO!

Everyone has their own phobias. For some it’s spiders, or heights, or being buried alive. For director Jaysen Buterin, it’s CLOWNS! So, why on Earth is he tackling a film about clowns in his upcoming film KILL GIGGLES, you ask. Well, check out his crowdfunding campaign to learn more. The film looks very exciting and the cast looks terrific, too!

For indie horror fans, the name Ellie Church (Frankenstein Created Bikers, Johnny Z) jumps out right away. But Jaysen has also enlisted some genre favorites as well: Judith O’Dea (Night of the Living Dead), Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior), and Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp). For the Grue-Crew, the film includes some familiar faces close to our hearts: Bill Mulligan (Blood of the Mummy, co-host Decades of Horror 1970s), Michael Ray Williams (Christopher G. Moore’s Knob Goblins, which also featured director Jaysen Buterin), Sammie Cassell (contributing writer for Gruesome Magazine), and Shane Terry (Blood of the Mummy) to name just a few.

Greensboro, NC – Earlier this year Mad Ones Films ran a successful crowdfunding campaign for their clown-killing thriller/horror feature film Kill Giggles. With the investment phase now completed they have launched a promotional IndieGoGo campaign to raise additional funds that will allow them to make Kill Giggles even bigger, better and bloodier when they begin filming this June.

“With the StartEngine campaign, as well as additional private investment secured, we met the minimum requirement needed to shoot the film! That means the cameras AND the clown heads will roll in June,” said Jaysen Buterin, writer/director of Kill Giggles, for Mad Ones Films. “We’re going to take a timeless terror trope and turn it on its rainbow wig-covered head by sending in the clowns to die instead!”

The ethos of Mad Ones Films has always been to give a good deal to their fans and backers with unique and one-of-a-kind promotional items and movie merchandise for reasonable prices. Their IndieGoGo campaign is making signed copies of the film and other exciting merchandise available to those fans, investors, supporters, collectors and horror aficionados alike who may want something special ahead of the film’s eventual worldwide release.

“Some campaigns can feel like asking for an audience to part with money on the off chance of receiving what can be not a lot in return. With Kill Giggles we made real investments available to the public for as little as $100. Now that we’re able to produce a complete and profitable film, we also launched on IndieGoGo where our cast and special guest stars Judith O’Dea, Vernon Wells, and Felissa Rose are all signing things fans will want!” said Callum Dougherty, Producer for Cubic7 Productions.

The campaign includes some thematically appropriate perks such as an autographed (inflatable) Bozo the Clown doll that was snagged within an hour, Kill Giggles-branded clown noses, a custom clown-a-gram, walk-on roles, and “Photo Roulette” where a disposable camera left on set every day will document the making of movie magic. After the film is completed the camera will be mailed to the backer along with a clown nose and signed DVD. The campaign can be found at: https://igg.me/at/killgiggles

SYNOPSIS:

Tommy dos Santos wasn’t born a psychopath, nor was he made into a sociopath; he’s walking his own path – a path that will run red with the blood of the foulest most fiendishly frightening creatures ever conceived by man! Clowns!

No longer do they have the starring role in our nightmares, it is now the clowns who are the prey, running for their lives from a killer who won’t stop until every single one of them is dead.
