Heir (Kickstarter) - Updated

HEIR - A Practical FX Horror Short, from FATAL PICTURES, Starring ROBERT NOLAN and BILL OBERST JR

HEIR is a disturbing, thought provoking PRACTICAL FX driven horror short film from FATAL PICTURES, the team behind the the critically acclaimed, award winning shorts CONSUMPTION, WORM and FAMILIAR. FATAL PICTURES is a Canadian film production company consisting of Writer/Director Richard Powell, recently named one of ten "On the rise indie genre directors who should be on your radar" by FEARNET,  and Producer Zach Green, who along with Richard where named one of ten "Canadian genre filmmakers to look out for" by PLANETFURY.COM. With three successful shorts under our belts the obvious next step is feature films, but there is still one last short film that wants, needs, demands to be made. This is that film...


After connecting with a stranger of similar interests online, Gordon and his young son Paul, embark on an ill-fated road trip in which Gordon aims to indulge a secret passion.  Before the day ends a horrible truth will be uncovered and a harsh lesson will be learned. HEIR is a monster movie unlike any other, it is a bleak and fantastical examination of one of societies darkest taboos that aims to stimulate the mind and wrench the gut with equal power.

HEIR star Robert Nolan speaks about the film and our past collaborations.

Starring the kings of indie horror Emmy Award Winner BILL OBERST JR and ROBERT NOLAN, and Produced in association with RED SNEAKERS MEDIA, creators of REMOTE, THE ELUSIVE MAN and THE SWEETEST HIPPOPOTAMUS, HEIR has a great pedigree of talent attached. In addition to these new collaborators several trusted artists are returning to help us craft the ultimate horror short including FAMILIAR's Cinematographer MICHAEL JARI DAVIDSON, SPECIAL FX team, THE BUTCHERSHOP and Composer BERNIE GREESPOON. For a better understanding of the passion and skill of these filmmakers, WATCH FAMILIAR AT THE LINK BELOW!

Our goal is not only to create a chillingly memorable short film but to demonstrate what can be done after a film is funded. Our supporters will see the film they helped make in festivals around the world, in print and in distribution. That is our commitment, to produce one of the most successful crowd funded film projects to date, but in order for that to happen we need the assistance of film lovers and filmmakers just like you. Check out what Horror Cult Star Bill Oberst Jr has to say about HEIR and his involvement in the project!

In order to reassure our supporters that HEIR has the goods, Fatal Pictures reached out to a cross section of the horror community for feedback on the HEIR screenplay. Check out what they had to say!
