“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”  

― Stephen King

Set during the back drop of World War 2 “AND NOTHING HURT” is a short horror film that follows a young terrified British Soldier as he flees from the turmoil of war only to come face to face with an altogether different kind of  horror.

Taking influence from AN OCCURENCE AT OWL CREEK, JACOBS  LADDER and doom laden folk horror such as, THE WITCH.  Our goal is to create a film that will philosophically engage the viewer, while entertaining with a high creepiness factor and gruesome slice of gore.

With a target to begin filming in March ’18, we will share our journey with you. Keeping supporters informed with regular updates as we put together an experienced crew, undertake the casting process, record test footage, and more!

“The oldest and strongest emotion of  mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of  the unknown.”

 ― H.P. Lovecraft

At some point in their lives everybody has known fear, it is a shared experience we can all relate to. So with that in mind, what better way to fund a horror film than through the shared experience of crowdfunding?   

The real reason is that we want to create the highest quality production possible,  creating something that all involved, including yourself, can take to festivals and be truly proud of.  

The donations made from funding will contribute to:  

- Experienced Theatre Actors 

- Director of Photography 

- Sound Technician 

- Realistic Era Authentic Props 

- Blood… lots and lots of Blood
