Umm. What I mean is, I'm fixin' ta head back out to Ludlow in five mere days! Five! Mere! Days!

The scenes to be added have been written, and I'm not exaggerating in the least when I say that the footage WILL MAKE THE MOVIE LONGER.

As this was my intent, I am quite pleased.

The motel room has been reserved...sorta. I drove on out to Good Ol' Luddie a couple of days ago and requested a stay in Room 8 (where we'd originally filmed) next week, only to be told that Room 8 is not being rented at the moment. There's a broken air conditioner and "other problems". I certainly shouldn't be surprised that I've already encountered some sort of difficulty out in that hellish wasteland- really, duh. Doy doy, even. But still, man- fuckin' Ludlow!

I have no idea what's going on in Room 8, but I feel fairly certain that it was built over an Indian burial ground and the dum dum developers only moved the headstones.

Anyway, Shannon and I will soldier on as we do and Ludlow will be in the can in a week's time. That said, this is my final fundraising push! Seriously, you guys have been amazing with the donating. A. Maze. Ing. I'm ever so thankful, and with your help we're going to shoot the most EXTREME MOUNTAIN DEW STYLE scenes yet. I can't wait.

If you haven't given yet and you'd like to, click here to find out how- or just click the Paypal button on yonder right. Please, spread the word in these scintillating final hours!

To further tempt you, don't forget the goodies: the person who donates the most will receive a painting- this you already knew. However, there are now BONUS INCENTIVES! 2- yes, TWO- lucky folks will be chosen at random to receive a special Ludlow-related prize. A prize. Related to Ludlow. Ludlow the town. Prizes from the infamous Chevron station. Prizes that are, in the truest sense of the word, PRIZES. A $10 donation gets your name into the Super Ludlow Prize Raffle AND into the film's credits. That's a win-win if I've ever heard of one, and believe me- I have.

Besides, how can you resist helping out a girl who so clearly enjoys being doused with blood?

Ooooh I'm glad you reminded me...I just donated $15. Wish I was rich and could donate $15,000! =)

I'm pretty tight on cash at the moment, but I did do a highlight about Final Girl on my blog and mentioned the Ludlow Charity! I hope you'll be able to get it nice and pretty and ready for your long career of film making.

By the way, love your stuff. Don't stop being awesome, girl! ;)

Stacie,

In case you don't know already, the guys from the Drunken Zombie podcast are hosting a horror film festival in November. They're doing an open submission kind of thing, and it sounds like they're really trying to get small budget/indie horror movies into the weekend.

They're accepting trailers too, so it could be great exposure for Ludlow in either complete or teaser form.

Just wanted to get this info to you, so that your movie can get out there to as wide a segment of horror fans as possible.

Good luck with the additional filming!

Hahaha! That last picture is pretty funny!
After a couple seconds of looking at it, for some reason it made me think of Regan in THE EXORCIST.
Of course, she's just covered in puke.
But still...

It's the smile, of course...
