What is Horror Equity Fund all about?
Horror content creators, fans, and investors are not being served by a unified platform.
Horror Equity Fund (HEF) was born of the necessity for a central place for professionals, fans, and investors to meet, offer services, find opportunities, discover content, and find funding for horror-centric projects.
HEF is that UNIFIED PLATFORM for Fans - Pros - Content Creators - Investors.
And paramount for investors is HEF'S focus on the MITIGATION OF RISK.
What makes Horror Equity Fund different?
Horror Equity Fund brings together the best forces that are needed to fund, create, market and distribute all projects related to the profitable world of horror. Unlike those platforms that solicit donations or contributions in return for a poster, a broken download, or a pat on the back, projects presented through HEF offer real ownership, royalties, or profit participation. HEF melds the old with the new, as industry-savvy professionals guide the process of efficiently securing funds while keeping visions intact and costs as low as possible.

We’re In A Golden Age For Indie Horror Flicks
