Campaign Ended

 

I love creepy, haunting stuff. I don't go for psycho movies really. But I love monsters and scares that are more cerebral. I love practical effects that make those monsters seem more real on screen.  When I read the script for ‘The Hell Within’ I knew it was the right project for my taste. It spoke to my horror sensibilities. And a story I know horror fans will dig as well.

 

 

The Hell Within follows a woman from New York on a quest into the heart of the Brazilian jungle to save a missing girl, only to discover that the child was just the beginning.

MARIE and her husband DAVID live a charmed life in Manhattan.  He’s a successful environmental attorney and she’s built an international aid organization that helps families in need across South America. 

The only thing missing is a child. 

When they start receiving disturbing phone calls from TERESA, a young girl in Brazil pleading for help, Marie can’t shake the feeling these calls are connected to her charity.  She convinces David to travel with her to Rio to locate the missing girl and soon a series of strange events and a shocking suicide lead them into the heart of the jungle.

Marie and David find themselves isolated in Seringal, a village overrun with drug runners and lost souls, steeped in ritual and superstition.  And as David falls ill to a mysterious disease, Marie begins to realize that the missing child was only the beginning of “The Hell Within”.

Just like planning for a film – this is our proposed timeline we are working in tandem with our core production team. We plan on opening up each phase of production in making this film and having you be a part of it in every possibly way that we can.   Just like making a movie, dates no question are subject to change due to Talent Availability, Shooting on Location, Financing and so forth …  All things considered, this will give you a good idea at what all we are about to be up to – with you coming along for the ride too! 

 

 

Simply because it hasn’t been done quite like this before...Stepping out of your comfort zone and experimenting definitely doesn’t hurt anyone… It is no question an undertaking trying to pull something like this off…  But together I believe we can do this.   Just like you have and continue to support me as a musician for the past 3 decades…  As I journey into filmmaking, I want to invite you all to come along all with me. As I explore – You explore.

 

 

My intention of doing this all together is for you to walk away feeling like you made your 1st movie with me. Join me through every phase of making this movie and get an exclusive first look at behind the scenes footage, location scouting, introductions to the cast as they’re casted, teaser clips, artists sketches, and character renditions.  And of course, we’ll have cool swag, experiences, pieces from the set, and limited edition merchandise for you all along the way as well!


 

We need feedback.  We need opinions.  We need your support.  We need to keep you engaged consistently with wanting to begin, finish & release this movie with us.  Have a cool idea or artwork you’ve produced that you think would fit right into “The Hell Within” World?  WE WANT TO SEE IT!

Slash sat down at Comicon with Nerdist to discuss making new music, his love of film, and to discuss his new horror film, The Hell Within.  Check out the interview below:

"Before Slash was the most legendary top-hat-clad lead guitarist of all time, he was a young kid living in London, obsessed with horror and sci-fi classics like Night of the Living Dead, The Exorcist, and Trog to name a few. In his own words, “I was that kid that liked dinosaurs and monsters and spiders and snakes.” Now Slash has taken that love of horror and decided to produce his own film, The Hell Within, and we were lucky enough to catch him down at Comic-Con on the Nerdist Conival stage."
