HG Chicken - Coming Soon!

Wanted to let you guys know about a kickstarter that my buddy Mike Salva is holding. I don't typically endorse Kickstarter campaigns, as I get tons of requests for this sort of thing and usually don't know the filmmakers personally. But this one looks pretty cool:



It's for an animated short film called HG Chicken, about an evil mutant time traveling chicken, voiced by Bobcat Goldthwait, and his robot sidekick (Jonathan Katz). Other personalities involved include Maria Bamford, Todd Barry, Lloyd Kauffman, and the Godfather of Gore himself, H.G. Lewis.

So check it out, there's tons of great perks including a signed DVD of Bloodfeast by Herschel himself.
