Chris Alexander and Barbie Wilde announce film project Blue Eyes

Based on the short story by the same name, Blue Eyes is a forthcoming film project, currently at the kickstarter stage. Directed by Chris Alexander (Queen of Blood, Blood Dynasty) and with the script written by Alexander and author/actress Barbie Wilde (Hellbound: Hellraiser II) the film is set to feature Nivek Ogre, electronic musician and performance artist or Skinny Puppy fame. The premise of the film is of a man whose luck has run out.
