Kickstart Days of the Living Dead!

Posted

Days of the Living Dead, the reality web series that takes you behind-the-scenes at one of Chicago’s biggest haunted houses, has entertained you for 5 seasons with the exploits of Zombie Army Productions as, each year, they plan, build and execute one of the scariest, most intense haunted houses in Chicago.

For the last couple of years, Zombie Army Productions and Yokai Films have brought you the show on a shoestring budget, and folks, we’re running out of shoestrings!

This Kickstarter campaign is, simply put, to keep the show going – the show is free to watch, but not to make. We want to bring you the biggest, best season of Days of the Living Dead yet! Your donations will go directly to help cover the costs involved in creating the show, including equipment, filming, production and post-production, etc.

If you want to see more episodes, more do-it-yourself videos, more coverage, just plain MORE Days of the Living Dead, please donate whatever you can – every little bit helps (and is greatly appreciated)! Can’t donate? We understand! Share this with your haunted house-loving friends on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

So please, help us keep Days of the Living Dead on the air, and remember: Every time you share this campaign, a scare-actor gets a scream…
