So a zombie walks into a bar... and throws a party

Somehow I find myself, along with 5 other brave souls, in the midst of producing an independent horror movie.

The synopsis: 

"The New World Horror tells the story of eight strangers who find life turned upside down when a group of tea party protesters release a zombie virus from hell. It’s Night of the Living Dead-meets-Evil Dead as the survivors band together to fend off the approaching End Times."

There will be many people involved - actors, costumers, makeup artists, editors - BUT FIRST, and foremost, and most importantly of all, is YOU! Yes, you. 

Do you support crazy jerks who go out in sub zero Wisconsin weather in short sleeves to shoot a teaser trailer?

Are you glad that there are people in the world who spend their weekends perfecting realistic cuts, bites and blisters (without applying knives, teeth or blowtorches to actual flesh)?

Do you want more of this in your life?! 

Also, do you like rock music?

If any of this rings true to you, then you, yes YOU! should get ready for two things:

1. The New World Horror  will soon launch an IndiGoGo campaign. Watch the website for details and check it out to see if you can spare a few bucks for this devoted crew. Just a few samples of perks that will be revealed: for $5, you can become a "blood donor," get your name in the credits, and help assure the above special FX will continue to weep, spew and spurt throughout production. For a little more, become an actual zombie in the film, kill off a character, or for the ultimate experience, bring the director to your Wisconsin home or business to screen the movie! 

2. If you are in the Madison, Wisconsin area, The New World Horror Happy Hour Launch Party kicks off on Tuesday, March 25. Come out to The High Noon Saloon for drinky-treats, the above-mentioned bands, as well as other musical interludes by Harris Lemburg (who among other things, is the organist for the Madison Mallards baseball team):
