When the bubonic plague hit in 1348 it was pretty bad time to be a Catholic. Monks and Nuns were infected just as much as the beggars and peasants, and the one man everyone looked to for guidance, the Pope, packed his bags and ran away to Babylon. Back then, most people believed that the Black Death was in fact one of God’s biblical plagues, and that God was very very pissed off. Acting out of desperation, men committed unspeakable acts in the name of God in order to shield themselves from his wrath. This is a story of those men.
Horror movies are a dime a dozen, and while we don’t talk about them quite as often as we do video games here at NA, we love us a good horror film. I first got wind of Lilith last February when we had the pleasure of interviewing Bitch Slap’s Julia Voth here on the site. Things were a bit “hush hush” back then, but I could tell for sure that Voth was excited about the project. Whenever actors have so much passion for a project I instantly want to know more. The film is directed by one Sridar Reddy and has some of the coolest concept art that I’ve seen in recent years. We’ve talked to a handful of indie directors here on the site, and they all have one thing in common; they need our help to spread the word about their passion-projects. The cast and crew of Lilith are currently waiting to hear if they made it into this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and you can help them by simply re-tweeting the following hash-tag #LilithAtTIFF2011 . Check out Lilith’s kick-starter trailer below and help spread the word!
