Want To See A 13-Year-Old Girl Direct A Horror Movie?!

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?

    I talked to Emily on moviepilot. She’s very nice and very passionate about horror films, especially slashers, which is great. Best of luck to all involved.

    this is a great idea! Passionate horror filmmakers are lacking in our genre I think. Seeing a kid who likes this stuff from such a young age could give us amazing artists – see the evolution of Tarantino

    Young or not, Emily Hagins was just a hyped up hack. Sorry, but her films looked like they were made by a teenager. Pointless and terrible. Give props to the people who actually did most of the work on her films or maybe the many people who struggle trying to make it in the biz instead of some hype machine.

    Good for her! I started getting into horror films around her age too, although I’ve always been interested in dark stuff from a very young age. I remember being in tears once because my Mum wouldn’t record Suspiria for me when it was on TV and I must’ve only been about 6 or 7! I just loved the idea of witches, but my Mum said it would be too scary. Hehe.
