Here at HMUNCUT we always enjoy supporting some awesome people looking to get their next epic funded. While down at TFW we ran into the guys behind the film The Border and have stayed in contact in time to bring to you their crowd funding campaign. The Border is a unique tale that sounds like a great blend of action and the supernatural. It is being directed by Spencer Gray and their Indiegogo campaign launched this past April.
Check out the synopsis, link to the campaign, stills, and teaser for The Border and be on the look out for more announcements from this soon!
“When the granddaughter of a U.S. Senator goes missing near the border of Mexico, former Black Ops agent Jack Barrabas is forced out of retirement to find her. Every path he takes, secret he uncovers and body he drops leads to a secret, mysterious door in a small border town. What he finds behind this door will forever change the world, and who he thinks he is, for the worse. You will never recover from what lies beyond THE BORDER.”
Here is a link to the indiegogo campaign help them reach their goal!

What writer/ director Spencer Gray had to say about The Border:
“The horror genre is almost dead and the big studios are the collective villain. Today’s genre films are missing so much heart and originality it’s almost made me stop watching horror entirely unless it’s from a foreign market or truly indie. As Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense, so eloquently put it, ‘There is no terror in the bang, only the anticipation of it.’ That’s what is missing. Not to mention people enjoy being scared. The goosebumps. The hairs on the back of your neck standing on end. The heart racing with anticipation. The gore. Those are just a few things missing in today’s horror films and why fans will always embrace the classics.”
Producer Robert Bedard added:
“I like seeing people wondering what is really going on in a world this big. The secrets which are buried beneath the complete lies of every day people. This film got my attention because it’ll make people dig deep into the truth and hopefully change the way they think and what they believe.”
The Border is a character-driven story that is structured to bring back the Fright Factor and throw out all the typical genre trappings. Producer and indie filmmaker Jeremy Mitchell added: “Audiences will be in for a treat as the story is original, and not a rehash of tired, dead storylines that is all too common in today’s market. Not to mention, people’s basic fascination with the unknown will be dying to know what is behind that door! You’ll never figure it out and we want to keep it that way. Only myself and the director know at this point, even cast and crew are in the dark and that’s fun!”
