From one of my favorite indie film duos in the business, Jessi Gotta and Bryan Enk are back at it again. The Gotta/Enk team are the brains behind two of the best indie films I’ve ever seen (The Big Bad and Anniversary Dinner).
Their latest project, The Moose Head Over The Mantel, is currently seeking crowdfunding and only has nine days left!
Here is a tasty little description of the film:
Influenced and inspired by the lives of H.H. Holmes, The Bender Family and Lizzie Borden, THE MOOSE HEAD OVER THE MANTEL follows several generations of the Hoffhienze family, a bloodline wrought with abuse, dysfunction and violence, spanning the 1880s through the 1980s.
The story centers on Lillian Hoffhienze Bachman and Jay Bachman, a young married couple who have just moved into the Hoffhienze family home with their troubled son, Nicholas. Lillian soon becomes obsessed with learning about her sordid ancestry, terrified that the past might dictate her son’s future.
Taking place entirely in the dining room of the Hoffhienze home, the story is seen primarily from the perspective of the moose head hanging over the mantel. The moose head is both the silent witness of the horrible events that have taken place over the course of one hundred years … and the family’s inadvertent prisoner.
I encourage everyone to check out the crowdfunding page and if you have the means, support some incredibly talented individuals who are guaranteed to give you one hell of a film! Shares are greatly appreciated as well! Let’s make this film happen!
