Being (2015) is a new horror sci-fi movie that needs some pledges on KickStarter. The tagline reads “When mankind discovers something that challenges our beliefs…we kill each other!” Starring in Being will be Lance Henriksen, Robert John Burke and Brian Foyster. As of this writing, they are asking for a small $55,000 with 27 days left to go.
Our story all takes place over one night on a farmhouse in a small town in the mountains. A mysterious, bright burst of light explodes from inside the barn, knocking out the power. The drunken gathering going on in the main house comes to an abrupt halt. There is a creature they will discover in the barn. Something they do not understand. And as always, when the beliefs of the weak and fearful are threatened, they turn on each other…
BEING is an edgy and one-of-a-kind film that transcends the typical horror genre. This truly unique story provokes an unnerving reflection of human behavior and the tragic violence of mankind that has, and continues to occur when someone, or something threatens their individual systems of belief. It thematically and metaphorically raises the difficult questions of our collective consciousness towards authority, tradition, and religion… rather than free thought and reason. BEING will leave you on the edge of your seat as it shakes the convictions of what you believe in.
BEING satisfies the insatiable and extremely loyal fans who just want to have some good old fashioned violent horror fun while also crossing over to reach a much wider audience with material that is as intelligent and complex as it is frightening. With a greater meaning in our underlying story than is typical in our genre and a compelling motivation behind the central characters, we knew we needed to include some of the most talented actors in the business. So we did just that!
