Ferguson would direct the picture, and joining him are a team of other sequel veterans including special effects by Joe Castro (Wishmaster 3 & 4, Night of The Demons 3, Blood Feast 2) and music by Justin Apone (The Toolbox Murders 2). Paul Taylor (“Pinhead” from Hellraiser: Judgment) is slated to play the role of “Grim Reaper.

At the time of publishing, the campaign has raised just under $600 from five backers.
