Oh my God.

Thank you all SO SO much.

If you haven’t checked out the campaign yet, click the graphic below.

We love you all.

Two and a half years ago, I was giving up on a screenplay.

I tweeted about the fact I was about to give up on this screenplay, this crazy thing with an unwieldy title. I tweeted about it, intending that to be the first and probably only public acknowledgement that the doomed project existed in the first place.

Here’s the tweet, and the response I got.

And that’s what we decided to do.

Thanks to that reply, the screenplay was saved from the bin. I nurtured it and it grew. I added songs. I added insane gore, loads of jokes and sincere character development. It went from being a half-written joke title to something I genuinely cared a lot about and felt that other people might do too.

Charlie agreed to come onboard as both the lead character of Emily and as producer of the movie, and then we were really off to the races.

Charlie Bond as Emily

Over the last couple of years, we’ve been carefully putting together an absolute killer project which we think you’re going to LOVE. There’s been so much blood, sweat and tears gone into this movie already, but every minute of it has been fun too. Because that’s what this movie is all about.

We’re currently running a Kickstarter, which isn’t just about us getting enough cash to finish the sucker off in fine style but is also about giving people the chance to get involved. Whether you want to get killed onscreen, name a chainsaw in the movie, go to a cast and crew screening where we’re going to sing the songs from the movie live onstage at the after party or just pick up a DVD of the movie…

Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got it. And if we haven’t, give us a shout on social media and let us know what you’re looking for. This journey has been brilliant so far and it’s really only just begun.

So click the graphic below, check out our promo video and prepare to meet the Powertool Cheerleaders.

Oh, and don’t forget to follow the movie on Twitter and Facebook.

Get the artwork for your indie horror movie onto a playing card in a very special deck!

Jinx Media is involved in a fledgling promotional project called The Deck. The idea runs like this: a promotional deck of playing cards is produced to promote INDEPENDENT UK HORROR MOVIES, ideally ones that are complete and available to the public. Each of the 52 cards will have face artwork promoting a different movie. Litho printed, retail quality.

For example, we’ve bagged the Queen of Clubs for our poster for our film The Devil’s Music. If you wish for your movie to feature on a card, it’ll cost either £75 (number cards) or £95 (court cards). For that cash, you’ll get your movie poster on a card and 30 packs of the final produced deck of cards (featuring, obviously, 51 other independent horrors along with yours). You can do with these decks of cards as you choose, of course, either selling the decks or giving them away as promotional items. Of course, everyone who nabs a card will ALSO have decks of these cards, promoting YOUR movie along with theirs, meaning that 1500 or so decks will be produced with your artwork on one of the playing cards.

In an age when print ads are dying, and digital ads are fleeting, this kind of placement could put your movie artwork into the hands of fans, in a context where they’ll see the image again and again.

After all, wouldn’t YOU rather play cards with cool artwork from a bunch of indie horror movies? I suspect that others would too.

We’re really excited about this project. If you’re interested in being a card in the deck, just email your enquiry through to cards@jinx.co.uk and we’ll take it from there.

Couple of disclaimers: there is no intention to produce The Deck with multiple images of the same movies. A different movie for each card. First come first served with specific card requests. We won’t take anyone’s money until all 52 cards have been allocated; if there isn’t sufficient interest, we won’t go ahead with production and you won’t have lost anything. But that would be a massive shame and make us really sad, because it’s going to be awesome.

Email through to bag your card, and spread the word to other filmmakers or producers who you think might be interested!
