Bloody Work: A Nonfiction Film

Ah, the first post of 2013. I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's Eve and is recovered from their parties. Hopefully the start of the year is treating you all well. The first review of the year will be up in a few short days but first, I wanted to bring everyone's attention to a very cool project that needs some help to reach its full potential. A friend of mine brought my attention to it recently and asked that I share the information and seeing as that I'm very intrigued by it, I had to oblige.

One of the more obscure crimes in American history, the Servant Girl Annihilator murders took place in Austin, Texas, throughout 1885, three years before Jack the Ripper terrorized London. Never before has there been an authoritative, scholarly or popular history released about these murders until now. Filmmaker Martin Wagner will cut through the myths to determine, as best as possible, the facts behind the crimes that changed the face of an emerging American city poised between Reconstruction and the oncoming 20th century.

Donations can be made for the production of the film at its Kickstarter page with various gifts for each amount pledged. Please help out by donating or spreading the word. Thank you.
