Kickstarter Campaign for "Cult" Feature Film

Well, I'm sure that many of you heard of the crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter and that you'll be interested in this feature film project called "Cult".

An extremist college-aged bible study is manipulated by their charismatic and insane leader into performing a group suicide, but two members conspire to stop it.

The film actually opens with the cult leader, Lowell Dietrich buying the punch that will be used in the suicide. From there we go to the house where we will spend a majority of the film watching the situation unfold.

Lowell begins to read from his own book that he believes god wanted him to write: The Book of Dietrich. According to the book, they are meant to kill themselves that night. Laura, the newest member of the group, realizes things aren't right and conspires with Lowell's brother Buddy to stop it.

They try to understand how they got to that point and the film goes into sequences showing how the group started. We learn how the bible study helped people and how it grew to control them. We also begin to examine Lowell, and why he started the group in the first place. It turns out Buddy might be hiding some dark secrets about Lowell. As they begin to realize what they have to do to stop the suicide, Lowell becomes suspicious of their plotting.

Cult needs $10.000 to become a reality, and it's at $1,861 now. If you want to help reach its goal, here it is the campaign's Kickstarter page.
