Roddy Piper Vs. Cthulhu In Portal To Hell!!!!

Okay. If you had told me a year ago that a short film was being made that featured the legendary…no, that’s not right…LEGENDARY Rowdy Roddy Piper taking on the mind-shredding Cthulhu in an epic battle of good versus evil…I would have probably said ‘Shut up! Take my money!”.

Thankfully you aren’t going to have to see me behave in such a way in person because you now have the chance to aid such a short film yourself with “Portal To Hell!!!” because there is an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign going on right this second.

Now the short film already has funding from the Harold Greenberg Fund’s Shorts-To-Features program but what the filmmakers, Vivieno Caldinelli (This Hour Has 22 Minutes) and Matt Watts (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) are asking is help with the funding to make the short bigger and better. The money will increase the visual effects and the amount of locations they can shoot which would help as they show off the finished product when trying to pitch a feature length version of the short film.

You can find out all the details including the awesome perks if you decide to help by following the link up above but why not let Vivieno and Matt tell you about the short film themselves…and Roddy Piper?
