Get into a Sinister X-mas Spirit with Chelsea Stardust’s “PROJECT HOPE” on CryptTV!


Earlier this month, FANGORIA profiled up-and-coming horror filmmaker Chelsea Stardust on our podcast SPLAT CHAT: ON D.I.Y. HORROR in a lengthy interview that talked horror, both fictional and otherwise, in the life of the young producer/director. An alumni of Blumhouse Productions and passionate member of the L.A. horror community, Stardust has since been at the grind on her myriad macabre film projects, from her impending fright features to her scary short-form contributions to Eli Roth’s CryptTV. And now, just in time for the horrordays, FANGORIA fans can see Stardust’s terrifying talents in action with the latter’s latest original short, a Christmas chiller entitled PROJECT HOPE!

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for PROJECT HOPE…

PROJECT HOPE takes place at a blood drive center over the holiday season, as a voice on the radio reminds us that everyone has been hit hard by recent tragedies and we all need to donate to keep Hope alive. But we soon find out that keeping Hope alive entails something particularly sinister. Do you really know where your donated blood is going?

Produced by Rudy Scalese, PROJECT HOPE is Stardust’s second contribution to CryptTV following her “Under the Bed” installment in Mashable’s URBAN LEGEND series of online shorts. You can currently stream PROJECT HOPE in its entirety at CryptTV’s Facebook as well as at CryptTV.com. Stay tuned for more from CryptTV as well as Chelsea Stardust here at FANGORIA.com, and be sure to have yourself a very bloody X-mas!
