BEST-SELLING NOVEL TO BE BROUGHT TO SCREEN WITH THE HELP OF THE FANS

INDIANAPOLIS — May. 2, 2011 — For Immediate Release — The producers of the short film SLASHER, have launched a fan-funded campaign to raise money for this first installment in the horror anthology series Dark Worlds. Based on Zack Daggy’s best selling novel Dark Worlds: Project 31 and filmed by Darkrider Studios (Lethal Obsession, Mother’s Blood), producers of the film hope to utilize the power of the net to raise $6,000 of their budget through the site Indie Go Go. Fans that pledge to this project will receive various levels of “perks” depending on the amount that they donate. This can range from a special thanks in the film’s credits, to the actual mask worn by the “Careview Slasher.” Complete details can be found at www.indiegogo.com/darkworldsslasher.

SLASHER will be directed by Chris Jay (Lethal Obsession) and will star Beau Yotty  (Unlikely Prophets), Michelle Shields (The Dark Knight) and Kelsey Zukowski (I’m Streaming Death). It is adapted for screen by Dark Worlds author Zack Daggy and Astral Audio Entertainment’s own Allen Sale. The score and soundtrack will be provided by Otto Cate of Deprogrammed Studios and Damage Vault, and Indianapolis based rock band Noctura.

“This film is a group project. There’s a lot of cogs in this doom’s day machine,”
~ Zack Daggy

“I am very excited with being part of this film and being cast as the Slasher. I grew up a huge fan of horror films, and I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to take on a role like this!”
~Beau Yotty

“I really love the character I get to play, Allison Smith. I think she is really interesting…Zack Daggy is truly a great writer and I am honored to have been asked to play this character.”
~Michelle Shields

Dark Worlds - An Original HorrorCareview seems like a nice enough place to live. With its small town feel and family owned diners, many visitors have used such words as quaint and charming while passing through. But those that stay long enough quickly change their mind. These are the ones that hear the whispers in the dark, the rustling in their closet, and the scratching from beneath their beds. There is a darkness in Careview. It lies in the shadows, and it’s waiting.

Moving back and forth between 1977 and 2008, PROJECT 31 interweaves the stories of four unlikely Careview residents…a diner waitress with exotic looks and matching heritage, a doctor with a traumatic past, a plainspeaking handyman who knows everyones secrets, and a gothic college girl that is determined to get exactly what she wants. Together they must brave a storm that has been brewing for nearly thirty-one years, but trusting each other might prove to be more than half the battle.

From the mind of Zack Daggy comes the first installment of The Dark Worlds Trilogy, a breathless, page-turning, light-speed read that hooks you in and doesn’t let go. An original horror series that’s sure to remind you why you should fear the dark.
