31 LISTS OF HALLOWEEN: "KICKSTARTERS YOU SHOULD THROW MONEY AT"

This is a trick list, because right now, there is only ONE Kickstarter you should be throwing money to.

 

FROM THE PRESS RELEASE:

Master Horror director Stuart Gordon, brilliant actor Jeffrey Combs and inspired screenwriter Dennis Paoli - the team that brought you From Beyond and Re-Animator - team up again to bring you a brand new feature film - NEVERMORE 
The incredible Jeffrey Combs stars as Edgar Allan Poe, haunted by spirits of the dead and the imp of the perverse as he attempts one last  recitation of The Raven to save himself from a life of crushing poverty and soul destroying alcoholism. The screenplay is adapted from the script for the stage play Nevermore - which ran in Los Angeles and toured the country to sold out houses and great acclaim.
NEVERMORE is set in 1848, a year after the death of Poe's beloved wife Virginia (and a year before his own.) He had become internationally famous as the author of 'The Raven' and his 'Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque.' But his fame did not provide fortune and so he was constantly seeking financial security and respect from the literary establishment. 

 This is Poe in his own words. Our text is taken from his letters and essays and we have based our evening on reviews and reports of his actual appearances. Our goal is to present a sense of the fascinating man behind the poetry and brilliant tales, a man who could be his own worst enemy, and whose life was even more bizarre and tragic than his strangest story.

IT'S STUART FREAKIN' GORDON AND JEFFREY FRIGGIN' COMBS DOING EDGAR ALLAN POEIn other words...
