Franky Films optioned the script to The Thousand Legged Terror, a fantastic short film that pays hommage to 50s monster flicks. We are looking to develop this concept into a feature length film and will be shooting the proof of concept in the fourth quarter of 2017. We currently have a letter of interest from renowned horror icon, Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Child's Play) to play the lead role in the feature and Art Hindle, Canadian horror legend, (Black Christmas, The Void) to play in the proof of concept. Numerous short films distributors have expressed interest in distributing the film domestically and internationally.This project will be the first of its kind in Montreal; a horror thriller with monsters utilizing Montreal's world renowned VFX and pratical effects studios.
