The weather outside is frightful, but so are these horror crowdfunding proposals! Whether you like films, comics, or board games, there’s something here for everyone. Help them reach their financial goals, and in return get to brag that you knew about these projects before they were cool.
It’s a story that horror fans know well—something mysterious falls from the sky, then suddenly mutants are walking the earth. Andrew Acosta puts a twist on the trope in his comic book Swarm. When an alien spacecraft crashes into a high school, the students and teachers are turned into undead beehives. Arriving late, two students are confronted by the buzzing biters, and must figure out a way to safety, while the military, black ops and even an angel arrive to investigate.
It’s true what they say, you never know what goes on behind closed doors. Riding that premise is Next Door, a full length anthology film comprised of horror stories about the dark things that our neighbours could be doing in the privacy of their homes. With a heavy dose of black humour, each film follows a central theme, creating one cohesive storyline.

It’s the 1950s, and men from a small town are mysteriously vanishing, then turning up dead in sci-fi thriller The Silence. Pairing external demons with internal ones, the film follows local news reporter Martin as he sets out in search of the truth, all the while struggling with his own repressed sexuality and the unraveling of his marriage.
