24 Hours Left to Fund Indie Slasher SCYTHE


If you’ve been following Popcorn Horror over the past couple of months, you’ll know that we’re big supporters of indie horror SCYTHE from director Jim Rothman. We featured the short film – a proof-of-concept for a feature – as our Short of the Week, and gave the more realistic slasher style high praise in our review.

Since the team behind the short launched a Kickstarter Campaign to support a full-length version, we’ve been watching closely. There’s a lot for horror fans to get on board with, with a film promising to ditch overused slasher tropes in favour of developed characters and psychological fear. The horror community clearly agrees, with over $44,000 already pledged to the campaign.

There’s now just 24 hours left for the SCYTHE team to meet their target of $50,000. It’s been market as a ‘project we love’ by the Kickstarter community, and has caught the imaginations of horror fans. Andrea from the team described it as ‘Halloween meets James Wan, crossed with a stylish thriller’.


Head over to Kickstarter now to find out more about the project, and to help the team raise the final few thousand of their target.
