THE GRAVE: COMIC-BASED FILM TO BEGIN CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN

the_graveActor Rett Terrell (“My All-American”) is teaming up again with Emmy Award-winning director Kyle Roberts (“The Posthuman Project”) for a hard-hitting short film with pulp and comicbook inspirations, “The Grave.” The Kickstarter campaign for the film launches today.
The short film is a pulp noir-style adventure set in the freewheeling Oklahoma City in the 1920s. In 1920s Oklahoma City, a few men are above the law. Fortunately, crusading reporter Walter Crim stands up to those who would oppress the innocent. When Crim can’t achieve his aims through the press alone, he becomes the dark avenger known as ‘The Grave’!

“‘The Grave’ is my latest superhero-styled film following up on the success of my film ‘The Posthuman Project,” Emmy-winning director Roberts said. “While ‘Posthuman’ mashed up my love for teen film and superheroes, The Grave takes us back into the past, merging gangster films with pulp heroes in what we hope will be a new and innovative way.” The film stars Terrell as Walter Crim/The Grave. Terrell is known for his roles in “Army of Frankensteins,” “The
Posthuman Project” and “Vampires Suck.” Terrell stars as Bobby Mitchell in “My All American,” opening nationwide in theaters today.

Alissa Ford, another “Army of Frankensteins” alum, joins the cast as the seductive and insightful Alice, once the love of Crim’s life, but who now may find herself caught up in a dangerous situation — and Crim can’t be sure on what side her loyalties lie.

Producers include Vahid Farzaneh and Matthew Price. “‘The Grave’ is a story about a man pushed to his limits; who wants to do what’s right but finds himself blocked at every turn by those with more power and influence,” Price said. “In an effort to stop those above the law from harming the innocent, he’s willing to take the law into his own hands — and bear the brunt of the consequences,” Price said. The film was written by Matthew Price, based on his comic book originally illustrated by Hunter Huskey and Jerry Bennett. Bennett has created murals, portraits and T-shirt designs for clients including Marvel, Lucasfilm and the Stan Lee Foundation. Roberts’ previous film, “The Posthuman Project,” screened as part of the Independent Film Festival held in conjunction with ComicCon International in San Diego. Among its accolades, it was named GeekFest Film Fest’s best feature at Long Beach Comic Expo 2015. The film is now available through DVD and VOD.
