And now they want to bring horror fans…
“Cryptid” is the quintessential creature feature throwback. We say throwback, but truth be told, it’s not a complete throwback, as in the 50’s sense. It’s more like a seventies or eighties throwback.
Films like “Alien”, “JAWS”, and “The Thing”, those kinds of throwbacks, the classics!
The story centers on a slacker journalist, named Max, who discovers that a series of grisly animal attacks in his sleepy little town of Maine is not what it first appears to be. Certain the authorities are on the wrong track, he takes it upon himself, along with his photographer partner Harriet, to uncover the mystery behind these gruesome killings before it’s too late.
It’s “JAWS” meets “Zodiac”: A little bit mystery, a little bit of a redemptive character piece, and a little bit of creature carnage. It is the Triforce of horror films.
We put together a proof-of-concept first scene of the film to give you a taste of the movie we can make together.

Brad talks about horror…
“Horror movies will always have a firm hold on the watershed moments in my life. From the first time I saw a giant shark fly out of the water, I was hooked. As a natural extension from a kid watching adventure films and transitioning to more adult drama films, horror films allowed for that mysterious unknown element that branches off ever so slightly from reality. The faceless unstoppable killer, the talking doll, the stalking alien on a ship, all exposed me to elements beyond the everyday reality of life.
Fear was a huge catalyst for me,and horror movies allowed me to experience fear in the best way possible, from the safety of my living room. These movies I watched, transformed the ordinary and made it something surreal and terrifying. Turning normal shapes and shadows on my bedroom wall into the endless depths of a boy’s expanding imagination.”
