Ghostkiller Movie: Can One Man Save His Ancestors?

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown July 1st, 2014 Last Updated on: July 1st, 2014

I'm a sucker for time travel films, so when I heard about this project I had to share. This IndieGoGo project is based on the popular novel Scattered Leaves: The Legend of Ghostkiller by Lynny Prince. The synopsis: Kyle Ghostkiller has been given a gift; a chance to save his ancestor from the gallows and prevent the largest mass execution in US history, but changes he potentially makes could do more than alter the past. Will he succeed? In this first of its kind movie, you'll have a chance to find out!

From the IndieGoGo website:

On the day after Christmas in 1862, thirty-eight innocent Dakota Sioux Indians were hanged in the largest mass execution in United States history. One hundred and fifty years later, Kyle Ghostkiller has the chance to go back and save them.

Kyle has just returned to town to accept a medicine bundle he has inherited from his ancestor, a man named Ghostkiller who was unjustly hanged in 1862. The ancient bundle contains tools giving Kyle the power to time travel. Arriving into town just after four teenagers are found brutally murdered, Kyle becomes a prime suspect; especially when the town gossip blames the Ghostkiller family curse during questioning by the FBI.

With Special Agent Lee Tarkington hot on his trail and a jilted, childhood sweetheart sabotaging his every move, Kyle escapes into the past where he must confront dark forces responsible for the murderous curse, or risk losing the “38” to the hangman's noose.

It's a fierce battle between good and evil that Kyle must win. Only the sacred ceremonies of his ancestors & Kyle's sheer determination will save his grandfather, but can he change history for the Great Sioux Nation?



You might recognize Woodland Cree Associate Producer Gerald Auger from the AMC show Hell on Wheels. He'll be playing the Ghostkiller ancestor in the movie.

I wish them good luck with the project! I can't wait to see how it all turns out. For more information on the project visit their IndieGogo page or follow them on Facebook: Ghostkiller.

Tim Talbot

Looks like a very good movie can’t wait to see

Debbie

Yes,I too can’t wait see it. Thanks for sharing

Ricky

How do we know they were innocent? From what I’ve read these were those who were determined to be rapists and murderers. Hundreds others were commuted by Lincoln who were judged to be engaged in war with the U.S. Bad men come in ever color.

Allen Weathers

Ricky, do you know so little of the real history behind this country. Your native-American brothers were, and continue to be treated wrongly, with great disrespect. Your history, as it was taught, was lies and untruths. It is sad that this still continues today.

Gerald Auger

Thank you for the support. Creator bless!!

Tamara Friend
