Our story begins at a girls' orphanage, with the county sheriff stumbling upon a mass murder scene. 20 years later, four college students goof off outside of the orphanage, when one of the students gets drawn into the house and will not let him escape. The other three, after trying to get in to save him, report to the authorities and an investigation begins, with the force discovering strange information about the house years ago. The student’s brother is called in, who is now a paranormal investigator. He, along with his “Scooby” gang and his brother's friends, re-enter the house. Clue by clue, they are led to the discovery that they are unable to leave the house either. One by one they start to fall victim to the house and spirit that feasts upon their souls, the result of “sin” that was in the house.
Director Chad Hundley had a dream that a friend of his was trapped inside this huge house and he was trying to break the windows of this house to get out. Chad was also trying from the outside to break into the house to help his friend escape, but all efforts were unsuccessful. He dreamt about this house that wouldn't let people out of it but individuals could go in with no problem. Chad worked for a real estate company at the time and a few weeks later, a farm listing of a large house much like the one he had the dream about came across his desk. He had to go see this house in person and it was a sight to be seen! He immediately knew that he had to write a script for a horror film based around this house. He worked closely with Writer Jerry Williams and the two of them along with a close friend named Kat Carney, dished out the first draft of what this screenplay is today. Now over 12 years later, this script and screenplay is ready to play out on screen and be made!

Friends and Family,
I hope all is well with you and I trust that 2019 is off to a good start for you! I myself am optimistic and hopefully that this year will be a great year for everyone including myself. Last year was a good year for me, except when I received report that I had Stage 1 Colon Cancer in June after being diagnosed with Crone’s a few months prior. I went through many weeks of radiation 3 times a week and received a clean bill of health that the cancer was gone a couple days before my Birthday. I had a lot of time for reflection during this time and realized that I had to be strong for my daughter Emily (who graduated from high school in May of last year) and myself! I also used this time to focus on things that brought me passion and drive. One of those big things was filmmaking and acting. A passion that I had over 14 years ago started churning back within me after a few years of it lying dormant.
I picked back up a screenplay from 11+ years ago, that I had co-written with a very dear friend of mine and said that it was time to finally make this film. This screenplay, which had been based off a dream I had a few consecutive nights needed to finally be made. I started script re-writes and tweaking it to a more up-to-date crowd and times. That passion and drive came back, and I was determined to succeed this time.
Well, I was hit with another setback in early November 2019 and was unexpectedly put into the hospital for 9 days with a rare case of water parasites that had attacked my body so bad that I had lost over 30 pounds in the course of 2-3 days. I just thought that I was severely dehydrated or had a case of the flu or something of that sort. It took numerous tests for the doctors to figure out what was going on with me and how they were going to treat it. It was so bad that they said I could have very easily died had I waited much longer. So, I had plenty of time to reflect more on my life that I was given another chance at and what I wanted to do with it. So, I quickly got back to work and started pulling together a team of friends and put out calls for more folks interested in filmmaking to have what we are forming today.
I along with my crew have created a film project that we are so proud of. My “dream” is close to coming to life. Yes, there is still some ways to go on it, but I am closer now that I was before and tomorrow, I will be even closer. You may be saying, why did you tell me all about your personal struggles this past year and what are you trying to accomplish. Well, I will tell you! I am not trying to get your pity, nor am I telling you a sob story to pull at your heart. I have told you all this to say that I am an overcomer and I can and will do anything I put my head and heart into full force.
This is where I do need you though. In order to accomplish this “dream” and reach my goal for this, I am asking you to help me. I haven’t ever asked for help until now. I am asking that you will help spread this story of passion and determination to everyone you can think would like to see a phoenix rising from its ashes. You can put your contribution in honor of someone else’s name that has fought a hard fight to achieve what they wanted as well.
I know that if we get everyone to donate even as little as $5 to this project and share it and encourage them to as well, that my team and I can make a pretty cool script come to life. Can I ask you to do this and can I count on your support in sharing the funding page as well? I would appreciate it so much and know that you are investing and sharing in my dream! Thank you so much for listening!
