Perkins' 14 - Poster for horror film developed by people on the web

Perkins' 14 is the winner of the After Dark Films and Massify.com venture dubbed “Ghosts in the Machine.” It’s the first feature film developed entirely via the internet and gave the massify.com community the tools to create, submit and choose the idea for a unique motion picture.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Craig Singer ("Dark Ride," "Dead Dogs Lie," "A Good Night to Die"), with a screenplay by Lane Shadgett ("Luna Park," "All Lost Souls"), "Perkins' 14" was developed online at Massify.com. Writers were invited to upload story pitches, and actors submitted audition videos. The site's community members then voted on their favorite story and on which actors they thought deserved to be cast in the four main roles.

The winning idea, submitted by Jeremy Donaldson, follows Robert Perkins, who at age six, becomes mentally unstable when his parents are brutally murdered inside their home. His psychosis has him living the rest of his life convinced that the killers will return in the future to kill him as well. At age 34, Perkins kidnaps 14 people from his hometown of Stone Cove and brainwashes them, creating a unified team of psycho killers.

The official site can be found here. Certainly a unique way of doing a film and the plot sounds pretty cool.
