A film by Erynn Dalton
Written by Joseph Zettelmaier & Michael Alan Herman

What begins as a night of scary stories turns into something far more diabolical when the campfire tales of creatures that go bump in the night begin to feel a little too personal to the family sharing them with a newcomer.

Currently in production, this tightly-connected anthology film is part queer horror, folk horror, body horror and creature feature. The third tale in the anthology, entitled The Lovers, stars Anne Bobby (Nightbreed) and Lukas Hassel (The Blacklist), has been completed and is available for viewing upon request.

Kindling Story 3 - The Lovers

KINDLING - The Anthology


"The Campfire"


One year after his brother Mitchell was brutally murdered, Marcus Carver has brought his brother’s adult children home to their rural farm to carry out the family tradition- telling scary stories around the campfire. This night, however, a stranger has entered the dimly-lit circle and their tales take on a darker tone as the night grows long. As the stranger will soon learn, the telling of these secrets come with a dangerous price. Starring Jim Beaver (Supernatural, Nightmare Alley) and Mike Manning (Slapface).



Starring horror legend Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Creepshow, Swamp Thing), this tale takes place in the American 1700s. When a group of frontier men in the 1700s go missing after a hunt, the wives and mothers from the village bravely follow their trail deep into the woods. What they discover during their journey is nothing less than monstrous, and these courageous women must fight for their lives against a flesh-eating beast called the Wendigo. 



Dr. Wixom’s young and beautiful wife Caroline is having a torrid affair with her husband’s dashing laboratory assistant, Benjamin (played by Ariel Levy from The Green Inferno, Aftershock). Dr. George Wixom, however, is working on a top-secret experiment within their Victorian mansion and has his own plans of exacting revenge on both his wife and her lover. The results of the experiment enough to drive a person out of their head.



The Morris family has one purpose- to hunt the hidden monsters that walk the earth. Tough-as-nails but wheelchair-bound monster hunter Ele Morris can no longer hunt, so the responsibility must fall to her wife Rachel and their son. When her supernatural powers tell her a monster walks among them,, she learns a dark secret that threatens their family and the legacy they have built. This segment stars Anne Bobby (Nightbreed) and Lukas Hassel (The Blacklist).
