Jack Skyyler, co-director and co-author of two upcoming horror films we told you about a little earlier this month, ‘Night aboard the Salem’ and ‘Haunted Ship’, just checked in and told us about the Kickstarter campaign the makers have going on for ‘Night aboard the Salem’. They have some cool perks up for grabs, including parts in the movie for people who can’t just drop by on set. And, by getting involved you can also help preserve a part of national history. We’ve got the scoop for you right here.
“When I wrote this script I was thinking of the films like Sixth Sense, Inception, and Saw,” Jack tells us. “I wanted a twist that would top Sixth Sense, and I wanted to put it in a mind-bending world like Inception, then give it that intensity and danger like Saw.” There you have it in a nutshell what to expect from ‘Night aboard the Salem’, which tells the story of six paranormal investigators who get trapped in a bizarre alternate existence inside the U.S.S. Salem and end up having to fight not only for their life, but also their sanity. To find out more about both films, check out our recent article right here.
“Our KickStarter campaign gives people a chance to get involved in the film. Not just the people local enough to drive in and act a short part, but even people distant can get voice over for an ethereal ghost in the film,” Jack continues. But getting involved in ‘Night aboard the Salem’ than supporting a promising new horror film: “What makes this film special is a good portion of any profits from the film going to the preservation of the U.S.S. Salem,” Jack explains. “Beyond that the Salem gets a lot of it’s tourism, which makes up for current funding of its preservation, because of it’s haunted mystique, and the film will help generate more buzz for the Salem which will mean more tourism and more funding for the preservation of U.S. history.”
