SCREAM AT THE DEVIL is a psychological thriller about the horrific path of the mental illness schizophrenia, its imagery, and what constitutes reality. Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that continually needs to be further examined to educate the public about its symptoms and medical treatment... and what better way to capture the disease than on film. Films about mental illness are on the rise as we can see from the 2013 Oscar nominated feature film, "Silver Linings Playbook" and the new dramatic thriller, "Side Effects".

IT'S NOT US WHO ARE MARKETING THIS FILM, YOU ARE!
Filmmaking is so much FUN! You have an idea, that idea turns into a script, that script turns into images that move on screen, and those moving images impact our thoughts, emotions, dreams and our lives. That is why we do what we do! But, the world of cinema is changing dramatically... as independent filmmaking is on the rise, complimenting the 6 major Hollywood studios, we think it is critically important that what we show on screen is unique and has an incredible story. It's not about making a lot of money, it's about making an impact on the world we live in.
This Indiegogo campaign gives us creative and financial control in order to make this independent film come to life on screen. We are making this film on our own with no studio affiliation... We are using our theater background, our artistic expression, and 100% of our hearts to create something special for you. This is the truth, so JOIN US by making a contribution today.
Honestly, we know that it's economically tough for many of you to make a contribution. We understand. If it is too difficult for you to contribute anything, then please FORWARD this campaign to your friends, family and colleagues asking them to contribute. In fact, even if you do contribute, please share it with your community. Let's go viral with this film and just think how cool it will be when this film is showing at your local theater and you can say, "I made that happen..."
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
