Described as a creature-feature set in the Old West, featuring practical monster effects, The Bad Taste Better looks like something we definitely want to see get made.

The project is the brainchild of writer/director Dylan Volker, a documentary and internet-based filmmaker known for his short horror films like Dakhma, as well as the comedy/horror internet series Channel 6.

Volker’s creative partner, Owen Adams, plays Mateo Mendoza, aka El Bajito. After a failed cattle raid, he is captured by notorious outlaws turned bounty hunters, Red Hand Stanton (Dan McGee) and Jethro McAllister (Zander Elsesser). En route to the town of Blackwater, Stanton and McAllister settle down for the night in the remote northern woods. However, these lawmen aren’t the only killers who have settled here…

The team has already accumulated a wickedly talented cast and crew and invested a significant amount of their own money in the project. But they need your help to bring it to fruition and make it as good as possible.

25% of the budget is being allocated to special effects to ensure they nail the aesthetic of the monster for this creature feature.

The team plans to use 100% practical effects and vows to use the money raised to bring their werewolf to life in the most authentic and gruesome way possible. 

Though the campaign’s goal is flexible, meaning the team is committing to making the film one way or another, failing to meet their fundraising goal has the potential to negatively affect the project.

Still, the hardworking crew made up of past and current film students, is extremely passionate about movie-making magic. They will do everything they can to bring the story of The Bad Taste Better to life in the coolest, most engaging, believable way possible.

Backer rewards include early access to the short, signed posters, executive producer credits, and more.

Of course, if you can’t contribute financially, there are other ways you could help bring this film to life. Most importantly, do what we’re doing and help spread the word. Share the project with your friends and family or on social media. More eyes on the campaign means a better chance of this talented team meeting its goal.

Now live on Indiegogo, the short film The Bad Taste Better was 50% funded after the first two days of the campaign going live.

At the time of this writing, they were just over 60%. Let’s help them get over the finish line.
