Our first feature length film, Slasher House, really kicked off the stories we have to tell centring around our female lead Red as she wakes in an abandoned prison, not remembering who she is or how she got there. As she investigates her new home, one by one other cells unlock and she realises she is trapped with some of the world's worst serial killers in a battle for survival. When Red finally realises her true identity, the basis for the Mychoverse's heroes and villains was revealed.
From Slasher House was spawned three back story movies to the killers of the Slasher House Cleaver the Killer Clown, Legacy of Thorn and Hollower and, most recently, a new Red story in the form of Slasher House 2.
We realised with every film we make, we introduced more and more characters who have their own unique storylines and something to add to the wider universe. This has lead to us wanting to create more short form films, web series and mini features with additional characters to add more flesh (pun intended) to stories that already exist and that will tie into the feature length content. We would also like to create more behind the scenes content and informational videos on how we do what we do as well as being able to interact more with those who support us.
We are a truly independent company relying on our own resources and the generous support of people who enjoy our films and we want to keep making these films in the way that we, and more importantly, you, want. Mycho was built on the support of our family, friends and fanbase and we want to continue to grow in the same way.

In return for your subscription every month we're offering some awesome stuff and the more we raise, the more awesome content we can make.
Every penny counts and goes directly into making more content for you and growing the Mycho Universe at much more rapid scale.
WHAT WE'RE MAKING
The Mycho Patreon will focus on making short form content that expands on the mythos and stories already established in the Mycho Feature Films. Bringing back familiar characters and adding new and terrifying faces to the ever growing roster of players that inhabit the universe.
Short movies set in the Mycho Universe, bringing to life exciting tales of suspense, horror, action, thriller, comedy and much more in small, digestible bites up to 10 times a year.
ERIC : A LEGACY OF THORN TALE
We've always worked on the theory that almost ANY character from the Mycho universe should be able to hold their own story. From that is born the idea of Mycho Short Cuts, where we give little snippets of the characters lives as they deal with the trials and tribulations of living in a world where every town has a serial killer.
The first story focuses on Eric Jones (Legacy of Thorn) as he finds himself in the position of kill or be killed, after kidnapping one of the strange Avondale cult members in a bid to understand the evil he, and the survivors of the last massacre, are about to take on. The film follows Eric as he tries to figure out if he has what it takes to take a life and what that means for him should he survive his encounter with Thorn.
The more we initially earn each month, the more shorts we'll be aiming to make every year. Starting with 2 and working our way up to 4 and then 8 - 10 each year. Each featuring new monsters, maniacs and classic Mycho characters in interesting and unique stories that transcend the horror genre and give the viewer a larger insight into how deep the Mycho Universe goes.
MICRO BUDGET MASSACRE
A monthly look at the Mycho movies and how they are made, hosted by MJ Dixon. Here we'll be delving into everything from how we come up with ideas, how we get them on paper and how we produce, edit and eventually distribute them to the masses. An in depth look at every aspect of filmmaking for filmmakers and fans alike.
MICRO BUDGET MASSACRE : THE VIDEO SERIES
After we reach our Micro Budget Massacre goal. Every month we'll start posting videos made specifically for Patrons, looking at the filmmaking process involved in making Mycho's own brand of twisted terror.
Making movies on next to nothing is trying, but it forces creativity and we aim to show you the tips and tricks we've learned along the way to make as much as we can out of as little as possible.
Smaller features (Up to 45 minutes) based in and around characters in the Mycho Universe. Genre bending looks at some of your favourite characters and some new and exciting original characters in shorter featurette length tales of terror.
The first of our Mini Features expands upon Slasher House favourite and serial killer Charlie Corben aka The Brain Surgeon.
Find out the truth behind how Charles Corben got his twisted name and how he began his journey to being full fledged serial murder as he sets his sights on Psychological Therapist Dr Annabelle Taylor in a game of cat and mouse so complex and deadly, that it will hurt your brain... Literally.
Corben is the first in a series of planned mini features. Should we reach our Mini Features Goal we'll be producing three mini features a year based on Mycho's deadliest killers including The Hollower, Moleman and many others plus some new faces along the way.
A 6 Episode Mini Series based on characters and situations that you know from the feature length Mycho movies. A more intimate look at your favourite Mycho characters across six 10 - 15 Minute episodes, that give a new insight into some of the interesting and terrifying characters that you've come to love from a fresh and new perspective.
AVONDALE : THE SERIES
The first Web Series we hope to produce is a Mini Series on 6 Episodes exploring the fictional town of Avondale, the birth place of Masked Maniac Thorn.
What if you lived in town where something terrible kept happening? How do the people of that town deal with such a burden? Avondale The Series will take a look at the lives of the people who inhabit a small English town that sacrifices a girl every 16 years, and the deep rooted evil that resides there thanks to the handy gateway to hell on the edge of town. The teens of Avondale soon find that Thorn is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the true horror of their hometown.
Set in 80s the series, with a very Stranger Things vibe, will revisit the characters from the Thorn franchise in a fresh new and interesting way. It's like Dawson's Creek meets Halloween.
Should we reach our Web Series Goal, we'll be releasing a new web series every year based on different Mycho properties, we have some fun, exciting and original ideas expanding the Mycho Universe with real in depth looks at some of your favourite killers.
