Some say he's a spirit of vengeance punishing the wicked. Others just think he's a deranged vigilante. Either way, the bodies are beginning to pile.
On Halloween night, four teenagers dressed for costume parties and delinquent debauchery make a stop at an abandoned movie theater. They go looking for proof of an urban legend known as "the Wraith". Some say it's a vengeful spirit, punishing those it deems to be wicked. But what they find is that the Wraith is something much more terrifying and real. A merciless vigilante hell bent on enforcing the law with extreme measures. In his cold and callous eyes no one is innocent. No one is safe...
Our film and comic book ,WRAITH, exploits and combines the tropes and elements associated with slasher horror films and superhero stories.We are huge comic book fans as well as fans of horror and genre films and that's why we're not only making this a short film, but a comic book as well.
Considering our project is an indie our funding came in unexpected ways. Many of our early loyal fans joined together to make contributions towards covering the costs for costumes, prop designs, and our location. Speaking of which, we are shooting at the historic Texas Theater in Dallas, Tx. Famous of course for being the place where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested after the Kennedy assassination.
Our end goal here isn't just to make a fun and scary as hell short film and comic book, but as a proof of concept for a feature film down the road. So if this concept gets you excited and you're wanting to help us out we're glad to have you on board.
