Horror Short ‘Kadence’ Takes Off as Another Promising Crowd-funding Success [WATCH VIDEO]

Often, time’s short horror films appear to be more justifying than the full length ones. In the case of the movie “Kadence,” crowd-funding has assured them of the creation of their production, which gives them the right amount of reason to take their short film and turn it into something terrifyingly disturbing, in a cinematic way.

Crowd-funding is one of the latest innovative trends that allow filmmakers a way to find funding for the films that they want to create. The latest success of Kickstarter, a prominent crowd-funding association, made the creation of another horror film come to life when they were able to raise an approximate amount of $18,000 for its production budget. This success is owned by a story of the supernatural genre entitled “Kadence.” (via Screen Rant)


In the trailer, you’re already able to detect the eerie element that surrounds the atmosphere with the scene and how the shots are being presented. Such irony being shown when the initial image sequences appear normal looking, but the background music builds the movie’s real malicious intention to really deviate and disturb you from what you are seeing.

The short film follows the story of a young adult named Kadin (Max Lloyd-Jones), who is going through a rough patch in life after losing his mother and is currently facing a destructively complicated relationship with his father, Joel (Bailey Chase). Ostracizing himself from the commonalities of his youth, he meets his cunningly appealing new neighbor, Marissa (Alyson Stoner). She introduces to him the practice of voodoo by offering him a ragged doll and explains it as something that can be applied with both pure and evil intent. Expecting to turn things towards a different life, Kadin then goes through a series of events that oppose those which he was hoping to achieve.

The writer/director of this promising short film is Jacob Johnston, who is very much experienced in the cinematic avenue of visual development. As a matter of fact, he has worked on Marvel films in such department, which included the box office hit “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the highly anticipated superhero film sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”  In his interview with Media Mikes, Johnston said that the short film is more on an introverted battle that is being resonated into the corporeal world. That being said, he aims for the movie to bring forth the horrific elements of visceral human interaction and revelation — much like the classic psycho-thriller movies like “The Haunting” and “Silence of the Lambs.” The movie appears to have potential for it to be developed as a full-length film, but the lead visionary does not really wish for the project to take off in such a manner.
