We all love and cherish young Emily Hagins, the Austin based filmmaker, who is most famous for directing the 2006 independent feature film, Pathogen, at the age of 12 (Wiki). Now that she’s all grown up and has a career, we need someone else to get behind as well..
Why not Emily DiPrimio, a 13-year-old girl who appears to be helping her father, Ron, with his dream of becoming a horror filmmaker. Emily is to co-write and co-direct Carver, an 80’s style slasher film that’s taken to Kickstarter for financing.
Emily is the face behind the project, claiming her love for horror beginning at an earlier age. It’s quite endearing and definitely makes you want to take a chance on her. You can do so at the aforementioned link. Until then, watch her pledge video.
“Carver is about a group of teenagers who are haunted by a despicable act they committed on Halloween when they were younger. Their actions caused the deaths of three innocent people. Now, on the anniversary of those deaths, an ominous calling card in the form of a carved pumpkin has been placed at each of their homes. Someone is out for revenge. The question is…who?”
