Earlier this week, YouTube critic Chris Stuckmann‘s horror movie project Shelby Oaks already broke a record for a horror project on Kickstarter, with the film scaring up a massive $660,000 from over 6,000 individual backers as of a few days ago. Well, the Kickstarter campaign for Shelby Oaks has now surpassed $1 million, with over 11,000 backers pitching in.

With 37 hours left to go at the time of writing this article – March 25, 2022 at 1:30pm EST – Shelby Oaks has thus far raised a massive $1,100,297 over on Kickstarter!

The original goal amount was $250,000, when the fund was first launched.

Stuckmann notes in the latest update on the project, “We did it, guys. We raised $1 million. You guys literally doubled my *wildest* expectations. I cannot say thank you too many times. The opportunities that are being presented to me now, and to our production company… I just got off a Zoom with this giant studio that wants to read the script.”

So what is Shelby Oaks about, you ask? Here’s the synopsis…

“Shot as a traditional feature, but with some elements of found footage, Shelby Oaks is a horror film about missing paranormal investigators (the paranormal paranoids), the dark legacy they uncovered, and the far-reaching effects their investigation has as Mia searches for her sister Riley, the lead paranormal investigator, 12 years later.

“As Mia uncovers new and disturbing leads related to Riley’s disappearance, she uncovers evidence of a hidden supernatural evil dating all the way back to her and Riley’s childhood.”

Stuckmann wrote and will be directing Shelby Oaks for Paper Street Pictures, and he’ll also be documenting the process as a sort of indie filmmaking school for young filmmakers.

Stuckmann promises, “Our behind-the-scenes indie filmmaking experience will offer an open, honest, no-holds-barred look into what it really takes to get an independent feature off the ground. We believe this is something that has never been done before and are excited to share with you the progress that you are enabling by supporting this movie. Whether you have a passionate love of filmmaking, are a die-hard horror fan, or just want to keep up with what Chris is doing, we believe this experience will bring immense value and entertainment.”
