“Solus”, a Fantasy-Thriller by Rachel M. Taylor, is currently in development. The crowdfunding campaign is in full effect. The production team has currently reached $3,085 of the campaign’s goal of $9,874 and still has about 34 days left of the campaign.

The Details

“Solus” is the story of Lulu, a young girl who is enslaved to a house of the underworld where she is forced to lure souls to feed to the house. Only when she delivers the most valuable soul will she be released into the underworld to rescue her father from eternal punishment. It explores oppression, guilt and isolation in the rich setting of the traditional gothic ghost story intermingled with elements of fantasy and suspense.

As in my first dark fantasy, “Avarice,” this film is a testament to the deep dedication of the team members working on the project. Elaborate settings, the clever use of practical and digital effects, meticulously planned cinematography, and the fascinating exploration of humanity through the eyes of a very talented cast are only the beginning. With each passing day, the possibilities of the story and the world grow, and we continue to challenge ourselves to deliver the most impactful and entertaining film that we can.
