Trust Me: A Witness Account of The Goatman
A woman follows her boyfriend into the woods for a surprise only to find something far more sinister. Based on a witness account of The Goatman, TRUST ME is an atmospheric horror film featuring a new breed of “monster” who fuels our paranoia and forces us to ask: who, or what, can we trust?
About The Project
We’re driven to make TRUST ME because of our fascination with the legend of The Goatman as no two stories are alike. Some talk of an odd physical entity lurking in the woods. Others tell of a thing that mimics people you know, posing as your friends or family to confuse and terrorize. This film will honor all the witness accounts by bringing their visceral fear to the silver screen – and to you.
As JAWS made us afraid to go in the water, TRUST ME will make you think twice of going into the woods – not because The Goatman will eat you – but because it will become you.
With our cast and crew lined up, we’re excited to introduce The Goatman as the next great horror villain with a frightening new vision: following an ordinary couple through the lens of documentary realism, we watch as they cross some unseen boundary between the real and the surreal – and get lost in a nightmarish corner of the woods where nothing can be trusted… the home of The Goatman.
But behind this vision comes a great cause – equal representation in Hollywood – as this film would not be possible without our African-American producer, female writer, female cinematograher, and female lead.
So if you like atmospheric horror, if you support films made by women and people of color, and if you want to see The Goatman as the next horror villain, then please join us in this filmmaking adventure.
