Crowdfund This: Indiegogo Campaign for Psychological Horror Short Film ‘Paralysis’

nullAccording to Queens New York based filmmaker R.  Shanea Williams there are

very few films with African American protagonists that are complex and dynamic.

But beyond that “black protagonists in horror are few and far in the realm of

the genre”.

But both Williams

and her producer Anthony Davis believe there are on the right track with their psychological

horror short film currently in development “Paralysis” which they plan to shoot

in New York this year.

In fact Williams

says that It’s a relief to know that there’s “a critical and pro-active group

of consumers, fans, artists, and creators who have grown tired of Black female

and male genre characters being sidelined, un-centered, and underdeveloped.”

Paralysis deals

with “Jessica, an African American photographer suffering with a sleep

disorder. After a painful divorce, Jessica moves into a new apartment and is

plagued by terrifying occurrences, which she fears are coming from a supernatural

entity”. And Ms Williams say that her film will  “explore dreams, reality, the depths of the

subconscious and our very human battle with inner demons”.


the filmmakers are created a Indiegogo campaign to raise $22,000 under different

levels of contributions called “Goosebumps”, “restless Night”, “Screams and

Shivers”, “Haunted” etc (you get the point) and to find out more you can go to
