London, United Kingdom — In 2017, Richard Kelly, director of creator-owned movies, launched a crowdfunding campaign on various sites including crowdfunder.co.uk for The Inquisitor, a creator-owned graphic-novel which is being turned into a film with a twist.
The Inquisitor is an independent film set in 1808, during the Napoleonic War. A thriller with lots of twists and turns – it is something that has never been created. The director, Richard Alexander Kelly, has directed many screenplays and graphic novels including The Beast, Lycanthropy, Ghouls and Clive of India.
The storyline is as follows: Set during the Napoleonic war, in 1808 gypsies Alfred Pallino and his two daughters, Gina and Maria, with friend Teresa Dalini travel from a camp to the next town to hear the church sermon of the Archbishop Francesco. As Alfred leaves the three girls in charge of the cart selling their wares, they are kidnapped and taken to the cell of the church. Once in the cell, they become aware of a female prisoner, Helene, in the cell next to them. Helene escapes by killing a guard and frees them all. However, this is by no means the end of the girls’ problems. The three girls run through dark corridors to find a way of escaping the church and avoid Helene. Helene kills much more in a blood thirsty rampage through the church and the Archbishop Francesco orders the guards to find her. As the girls try to avoid both Helene and the guards, what will happen when all three parties catch up with each other, and the body count rises? The cast is small, featuring the girls, Helene, their father, a shepherd, a monk amongst others.
What is great about the venture is that it is solely owned by the director and producer. A lot of work has gone into the creation of this unique thriller. Research is currently being undertaken regarding what locations and venues would be most suitable for filming.
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including t-shirts, other memorabilia, access to the premiere in London, recognition in credits and various other director packages that can really allow a film-enthusiast to get involved.
