SHANNON by Alex Anico
SHANNON is a bold horror script that marries cannibalism to eroticism. The protagonist is a down-on-his-luck every man who thinks he’s hit the jackpot when a mysterious and sexy bombshell of a woman wants to go home with with him. He wakes up months later not only perfectly ok with her dark alley extra curriculars but also comes to aid her in them, killing various men for her to feed on.

Hello my name is Alex Anico and I am a writer, illustrator, & director and sole owner and operator of Studio Mogura, a comic book, film & animation think tank based in Miami, FL. My current project is my first feature film called Shannon.
Shannon is my second feature length screenplay and my first horror script. It is also my directorial debut. It's been a project that has been in development for almost 4 years. It started out as 3 pages and then grew to 30 and is now at feature length script.
The feature is a Post Neo-Noir Horror Comedy Thriller (or a Horror Noir or Noirror) and plays out like a mini-series. It is split up into 4 Acts and is filmed in black & white, a staple in Film Noir. I wrote the project so that the cost would be minimal as filming takes place in a limited amount of locations. A main cast is in place and committed and I have already completed production on a very limited budget of the first Act.
All donors under $15 will be eligeble to win a DVD & digital copy of Shannon, a T-Shirt or a poster.
All donors over $15 will receive a DVD copy of Shannon once the film is completed. Check out the rewards below for the specifics.
A log line can be read below but a synopsis and screenplay are currently only available for viewing by verified studios, producers and directors.
