First look! Lee Hardcastle's 'Spook Train 3D' - his FIRST full length claymation film!

Three kids discover the remains of the legendary Spook Train, they’re about to experience why it was shut down by a moral panic. It’s a dark ride with an even darker sense of humor.


If you've heard of Lee Hardcastle, chances are that you've seen 'ABCs Of Death' and are familiar with his short skit called 'T Is For Toilet'. [classy, I know.] It has blood, violence, cursing, and more than anything it was fucking brutal- especially for a claymation short. If you were to check out his Youtube channel [check it out here!], you'd find that he also does a bunch of other shorts- mainly based on horror films such as The Thing, and Evil Dead II ! However, now Hardcastle is preparing for the next big step: to make his first full length feature and it's going to be in full claymation style! [fucking awesome, if you ask me!] It's not going to be easy to make, [I can only imagine how long 'T is For Toilet' took to make..] so he has set up a Kickstarter project to get fans to help with financing the film [click here to donate/buy a ticket!]; the name of this film is none other than 'Spook Train 3D' ! In a video with Lee Hardcastle himself, he claims it's going to be an anthology film and that 'Spook Train 3D' is described as “the world’s first feature length claysplotation.”- which I think is going make this film even more fun than it already looks! [I love me some anthologies!]

Don't forget about Lee's 'T is For Toilet' either! [watch that short here]

Not much has been said about the release of Spook Train, but I urge you to donate even a little sum of money to the film's cause, cause it's looking fucking great!  The trailer [which I've posted below for your viewing purposes] shows us that it'll be a typical Hardcastle short [or in this case; full length film] filled with blood, guts, and violence like you wouldn't believe - and all in 3D!

Don't forget to check out Hardcastle's Youtube channel as well for more claymation goodies! and as always - Be sure to 'like' the fan page for Firework Eyes & Haunted Hearts on Facebook; which you can find here, or even follow me on Twitter.
