A Kickstarter campaign has been launched in order to raise the funds necessary to complete the film. Although the $2,000 goal has already been exceeded, the filmmakers are still accepting support in order to create the best movie possible. Supporters can donate anywhere from $1 to $275, with rewards including producer credits, roles in the film, screen-used props, artwork, memorabilia, autographs and more.
Easter Sunday aims to return to the slasher genre’s roots by relying on tension, suspense, camerawork, character development and black humor, rather than quick editing and jump scares. “I feel like a lot of horror films being released these days don’t have the heart and soul that the genre films from the ’80s had,” explains Morehead. “Our goal is to create a film that pays homage to all the films that made us horror fanatics.”
