Why We Need Your Help
The Vamprechaun team needs your help to make the film a reality. The film is scheduled to shoot this summer, and only with your contributions can the filmmakers hit their target start date.
By producing the film independently, Mark Jones will finally be able to tell the horror story the studios have been afraid to make. Also, the filmmakers will control all aspects of the film allowing horror like you have never seen before!
For the first time we also hope to bring a character such as Vaprechaun to you in stunning 3-D. This can only be accomplished with your help. Once the film pops out of the screen you will know this only happened because of amazing fans such as you!
We couldn't do it without you!

Having created the successful "Leprechaun" horror franchise, I felt the time was right to create another "horror comedy" franchise that would appeal to the same audience but have a unique and contemporary feel to it.
Realizing Vampires are wildly popular, but not wanting to rehash the same, I thought combining the Leprechaun mythology with that of Vampires, would enable us to have a new brand of "horror creature" that the audience for these movies would embrace and love.
I feel "Vamprechaun" will surpass the popularity of the "Leprechaun" movies as there is much more we can bring into the stories with a character that has even more dimension and facets and will enable us to launch a new franchise that will have endless room for continuing sequels.
