June 12, 2013 Mugworth Productions has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise money for their latest production, a horror anthology titled Zombificador. Supporters can donate anywhere from $1 to $5,000. Perks include producer credits, limited edition Blu-rays, autographed posters and scripts, memorabilia and even an appearance the movie. All contributors are also invited to appear in a DVD featurette.
Upon successfully securing the funding, iconic filmmaker Herschell Gordon Lewis has agreed to return to the director's chair for Zombificador. Lewis is affectionately known as the "Godfather of Gore" after making such classic splatter fests as Two Thousand Maniacs, Blood Feast, Color Me Blood Red and The Wizard of Gore. Now he's ready to create what promises to be his bloodiest movie ever!
Lewis will direct from a script written by Marc Fernandez. Zombificador is an old-fashioned anthology movie with five interconnecting stories. From big, fat monsters with the ability of transforming people into savage creatures, to human-sized mutant bugs, along with talking puppets and silent psycho killers, Zombificador has it all. The movie will utilize traditional, practical special effects.
Genre favorites Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects, Repo! The Genetic Opera), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) and Todd Farmer (My Bloody Valentine, Jason X) are attached to star in the film. Other recognizable faces are in talks to be involved.
As put by the film's press release:
With a great filmmaker, script and cast all in place, the only thing missing from Zombificador is funding. Production will begin as soon as financing is in place, so bid generously at igg.me/at/zombificador
