Underground movie distributor/producer SRS Cinema is currently raising funds for shot-on-video legend Mark Polonia’s latest effort, a haunted doll thriller called Deadly Playthings. It is Mark’s loving homage to the creepiness that is horror movies based around dolls such as Annabelle and Magic. The movie is currently in post-production with an Indiegogo campaign currently live to help recoup the production expenses as well as the upcoming wide release costs.
In the film, “A child’s mysterious doll, once home to restless and disembodied spirits, is handed down to the occupants of a new home. The doll, found hidden in the dark recesses of the basement, is adopted by a lonely, near mute, wheel-chair bound girl. Soon the loving family is thrown into a living hell. But the violent deaths and supernatural occurrences bring the doll back into contact with the one person who may be able to help – its original owner. She knows what evil has taken roots within it, and ultimately what the spirit wants. It all leads to an explosive final showdown between psychic and demon, with the young girl’s soul hanging in the balance.”
The campaign has been running about three weeks now and is currently over 370% financed! The first stretch goal has been reached, which added a mini-poster and die-cut sticker to all physical media orders. Progress continues towards the second stretch goal, $6k, which if reached means everyone who contributed gets a FREE rare Polonia Brothers movie!
