Be a part of film history, and join Matt Watts and Vivieno Caldinelli to make the crazy short horror-comedy “Portal to Hell” where you’ll get to witness the ultimate match-up between Roddy Piper and Cthulhu.
Imagine, if you will, that the Great Old One, Cthulhu himself, had a secret soft spot for Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn in Overboard and convinced the great John Carpenter to return to Lovecraft mode to write him a part in it. And then add Roddy Piper in a perfect role as Jack written just for him. We’d like to think the result would be very much like “Portal To Hell”
Jack is a simple man with simple needs. Mostly he just needs to be left alone to read his book. It’s a good book and he likes it, or at least he would if the tenants of the building he manages weren’t so damn needy themselves. And it’s not just blown fuses and clogged toilets here … no, when the building power goes out the culprit is a pair of tenants opening a portal to hell in the basement. Does this count as building maintenance? Is battling the supernatural part of Jack’s job description? Maybe not, but if Jack can’t close the portal the entire building and – let’s face it – the whole world is screwed.
This short film is a calling card for the feature-length version of “Portal to Hell!!!” that we’re writing and will begin packaging in Fall 2015! Be a part of it now!
