A story tangled up in a web of family drama, personal demons, and a horrifying monster.
We told you last month that Cory Neal (producer of the Hatchet films) and Micah Gallo launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring the original horror film Itsy Bitsy to the screen. The film, described as a “classic creature feature and family drama,” has raised over $22,000 so far, more than halfway to its $40,000 goal.
With less than 10 days left to fund the indie film, the producers have just unveiled a fresh piece of poster art that they hope will ensnare you in its web. What’s so special about the art? It was painted by Matthew Joseph Peak, the brilliant artist who painted all of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street posters!
Check out the awesome, retro-style art and full campaign details below the trailer.
Itsy Bitsy marries the high concept fun of a film reminiscent of Jaws with the edgy character drama of a film like The Exorcist and features a woman in the center scorned by her past. Her physical fight is with the creature while her battle inside is ambivalence versus pure love.
“The film tells the story of single mother “Kara” (Elizabeth Roberts) who moves from New York to the quiet countryside with her two children for a job opportunity she can’t afford to turn down. The family moves into their humble new guesthouse. Kara begins her work as a private nurse to “Walter,” (Bruce Davison) a man stricken with multiple sclerosis and an appraiser of rare antiquities with a secretive past.
Her teenage son, Jesse, (Arman Darbo) is unhappy about this most of all. Losing his friends and moving to the middle of nowhere hasn’t made his job of looking after his little sister, “Cambria,” (Chloe Perrin) any easier.
Doom precedes them. “Akiba,” (Treva Etienne) a shady international associate of Walter’s, brings with him a mysterious relic of ancient origin. “Kara” encounters run in with a local sheriff played by genre veteran actor Denise Crosby.
All too quickly they discover the relic contains more than just legends. Inside, waits a terrifying creature born of ancient darkness and pure instinct…a pre-historic cave Spider unlike the modern world has ever seen.”
