Breaking into Horror Docs
Is there room for LOOR in the horror documentary genre?
If the numbers mean anything, there is.
In the plague year of 2020 27 million customers spent $247 million on 37 horror films. Most of those films you've never heard of; only 14 of them had more than $1 million in ticket sales. The number one film, The Invisible Man, took in nearly $65 million.
That means that one film took in 26% of the sales.
The problem with Hollywood horror? It's horrible. The plots of the best performers are usually a bad joke--
"What do you get when you put a bunch of drunk and randy teenagers in a cabin in the woods who have a tendency to wander out into the chainsaw shed alone? The nice teenager you didn't want to die all along."
That, my friends, is the definition of a pot boiler. Hollywood is on pace to make Halloween 138 for your grandchildren. Rumor has it that Jamie Lee Curtis' grandchildren are starring in it.
The most profitable horror film in history, The Blair Witch Project, was something different; filmed on a low budget and made a ton of money. And you have not seen 13 of them.
Does lightning strike twice? We're betting it will. The issue is not budget, it's story.
When it comes to the supernatural, we have a better story than Hollywood. It's true. The question is, do you believe it? Investors, partner with LOOR and help us build something better than Hollywood ever imagined.
