The crowd funding has kicked off for horror film “Earthworks”. The film is being produced by London based Shaheen Schleifer and Executive Producer Roger Trett. “Earthworks” follows five doughboys who get lost in a fog of No Man’s Land during WWII. David Hackl (Saw 5, Grizzly) will direct this UK/ Canada co-production.
Earthworks exists in an isolated trench/ No Man's Land set and creates a sense of abandonment from the start.. 5 young American soldiers enter France and on their first night at an allied trench, everything goes wrong very quickly. Caught up in a beguiling fog, the film follows the young characters as they each come to different but understandable decisions. It is a tense and atmospheric story and the horror/ psychological thriller genres are purposefully chosen to tell their stories as the genre elements of surprise, shock, terror, fear and encroaching anxiety about the unseen all lend themselves to the story well.
