Horror fan? Wrestling fan? John Carpenter fan? Well the “Rowdy” Roddy Piper-starring PORTAL TO HELL could be just up your street. As long-time genre fans with a penchant for Carpenter and a subscription to the WWE Network, this short film most definitely has our attention.
After starting an Indiego campaign last year to fund the tale, Vivieno Caldinelli and Matt Watts have now added a stretch goal. Since reaching their initial target of $21,000, the new goal is $30,000… and the last day to contribute is today!
In case you’re not familiar with the project, here’s word from Caldinelli, Watts and wrestling icon Piper:
The official word on the short reads:
Imagine, if you will, that the Great Old One, Cthulhu himself, had a secret soft spot for Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn in Overboard and convinced the great John Carpenter to return to Lovecraft mode to write him a part in it. We’d like to think the result would be very much like Portal To Hell!!!
Jack is a simple man with simple needs. Mostly he just needs to be left alone to read his book. It’s a good book and he likes it, or at least he would if the tenants of the building he manages weren’t so damn needy themselves. And it’s not just blown fuses and clogged toilets here ... no, when the building power goes out the culprit is a pair of tenants opening a portal to hell in the basement. Does this count as building maintenance? Is battling the supernatural part of Jack’s job description? Maybe not, but if Jack can’t close the portal the entire building and – let’s face it – the whole world is screwed.
